Foochow Red Rice Wine Mee Sua Soup 福州红糟酒面线

Special Thanks to my blogger friend May who brought me this Foochow red rice wine and Mee Sua (thin and salted rice noodles), so we have a chance to try this authentic Foochow Ang Jiu Mee Sua at home. Foochow peoples especially like to cook this Ang Jiu Mee Sua during confinement time (after delivered baby) . And every Foochow grandmother also know how to make this red rice wine at home.



 The Foochow red rice wine was homemade by May's mother and Mee Sua was bought from May's hometown Sitiawan ( a place mostly Foochow peoples) .


 When I was cooking this soup, the nice ginger and sesame aroma remind me of my confinement time !!



 
Oh, this was delicious ~ even my kids also enjoyed it!

Rarely seen any Foochow dishes around except for Sarawak region, Ang Jiu Mee Sua did remind me of a friend while stay at Bintulu ...nostalgic

Good morning Ms Sonia,
Lovely Red Rice wine.... drink to the last drop during my confinement too!

Lite Home Bake said...

Love this, a comforting bowl of homey noodles :)

Kimmy said...

Hi Sonia, I didn't know we can cook this mee suah with the wine only. Must be very aromatic and it is healthy. BTW, are you still operating your 'kedai runcit'?

Phong Hong said...

Slurps...slurps...two bowls also got no problem for me hee...hee...

Angie Schneider said...

This looks so delicious, Sonia.

bungatelang said...

Hi Sonia, Love your website. Living in Melbourne, there's no chance to taste this dish without actually make the red rice wine to begin with. Any chance you or your friend could share the art of making the red ice wine at home?

daphne said...

Nancy @ Top Pressure Cooker Reviews said...

Mmm, this sounds wonderful. I’ve tried other recipes, but I like the idea of the rice wine. Sounds like a good “zing” to add.

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

I have never seen (I think) or tried Foochow rice wine before. The noodles look delicious. You and your family eat so well everyday!

Anne Regalado said...
