Mee Soto is one of our favourite and most nostalgic dishes to have especially during Hari Raya.

Its aromatic and hearty broth brings back primary school canteen Malay stall vibes; an extra comforting bowl of noodles.

Adding a Begedil is a great way to soak up all the flavours of the soup and makes for a filling meal. We’ve got a Begedil recipe hack (15mins tops) here
