daphne said...

Little Corner of Mine said...

Your sambal tumis sure caught my attention! So jealous, get to go to Japan, have a fun trip lady!

tigerfish said...

Yes, this should be called mee hoon siam instead of mee siam as we loosely call it in Singapore! I usually have the gravy version and love mee hoon siam cos of the "tangy" factor :)

Have a enjoyable and safe trip.

Lori said...

I'm headed right over to get the sambal recipe! This looks amazing!

yvonne said...

I love this kind of mee hoon - soury spicy one. But not very suitable to cook in my household here - the kids are still young and unable to take spicy food.

Enjoy your leisure trip to Japan!

Thanks for posting this! Brings back many fond memories of my childhood. My grandma and grandaunt used to make this when we were growing up. They're too old now to cook so it's my turn to do it :)

noobcook said...

Love this dry version of mee siam. Enjoy your trip!

Johor Kaki said...

The looks of that sambal can kill! oh well, I will eat that anytime ;D

Chic & Gorgeous Treats said...

We are a fan of mee siam in my family. It's light but has that hint of spiciness from the sambal, and that slight tang from a spritz of lime juice. I suddenly feel like packing up my bag, and call off work for the day to cook this :P.. Have a great weekend ahead Sonia!! huggs, Jo

My Little Space said...

Whoa, so enjoy! Bon voyage, girl. Enjoy & have lots of food & fun.
