Mee Siam

Mee Siam, as the name suggests, means Siamese noodles. It is a perfect dish for breakfast as the beehoon (thin rice vermicelli) soaked in the light and sour-tasting gravy immediately awakens up your appetite!
It is made by stir-frying beehoon in spices and then drenching it in gravy. (Our Malaysian friends may be more familiar with the stir-fried version)
In Singapore, you can basically see Malay, Chinese, Indian and even Peranakan stall owners selling Mee Siam. This is truly a very well loved dish!!
