This stall is famous for its Crayfish Laksa and Fruit Juice Mee Siam. As I'm a rebel at heart, I had to try its other dish - Mee Rebus (even though I've yet to try its famous dishes! Ha! )So, the rebel (me) queued for 15 mins during lunchtime, just to order the Mee Rebus. So much hype about the other 2 dishes, and nothing about this? I saw that all 3 dishes were priced at $3/ $4/ $6, where $6 would include a crayfish. Since I had queued for quite some time, might as well make the queuing wort
So, the rebel (me) queued for 15 mins during lunchtime, just to order the Mee Rebus. So much hype about the other 2 dishes, and nothing about this? I saw that all 3 dishes were priced at $3/ $4/ $6, where $6 would include a crayfish. Since I had queued for quite some time, might as well make the queuing worth and decided to go for $6. Unfortunately, the stall aunty told me that they had no more crayfish. So, I settled for $4. Seemed like nobody else in front of me ordered Mee Rebus. When I finally made my order, the aunty asked me if I had tried the other 2 famous dishes, and encouraged me to since I've never tried them. The Mee Rebus was rather different from the usual Malay version (thick gravy). I preferred this version as it was easier to swallow with the diluted texture of its gravy. What was unique about this Mee Rebus was that there were 2 pieces of steamed chicken in it, and the aunty added some black sauce (chicken rice type) on them, and told me it would make the dish tastier. She was right - I should have added more black sauce to the WHOLE dish (I'm a black sauce fan! ). It'll probably enhance the whole dish and elevate its popularity to a higher level! I chose Noodles + Thin Beehoon for my dish as well, as the combined texture always complemented each other very well. First ever Mee Rebus I've eaten with 2 different types of noodles in it. There was another option of Thick Beehoon, but I never liked it).
I'd say this Mee Rebus is probably the best I've eaten, given my preference for its gravy texture. But if I visit again, I'd probably pay tribute to the 2 famous dishes (and see what the hype is really all about). By the way, the stall Uncle takes a while to cook each dish, hence the long waiting time. You must brace yourself for this!
