Mee Hoon Kueh (Hand-pulled noodles) 麵粉粿

Mee Hoon Kueh (Hand-pulled noodles) is another famous local food in Klang beside Bah Kut Teh. We like to eat out at this restaurant for Mee Hoon Kueh, and I also like to cook this at home too, at least twice in a month. This noodle taste better if you cook it per bowl per serving at a time.

  4. I've never seen anyone using tong choy for this. And it seems nice.

    BTW, the best Pan Mee I've ever eaten was in Cheras Perdana, back in the days when I was working in Sg. Long.

  31. So much ingredients in a bowl, beats those sold outside any time!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Every thing looks like Pan Mee except you used Mee Hoon Kueh as the noodle. I don't normally order Mee Hoon Kueh when I eat out since the Mee Hoon Kueh is always too thick and starchy. Your home version is definitely better.

  35. I am fascinated with the method you used to make the noodles. I've never seen this done before and I'm intrigued. The post was lovely and I especially appreciated the instructions for making the soup by the bowlful. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary.

  36. Oh that looks a lot like this Korean soup dish that I used to have back in Korea! Now I want to make some.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Your recipe is almost identical to mine. The only different is, after pulling the dough, I drop it in a pot of simmering water and then into the soup base. Love it!

  50. hi Sonia can we make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the fridge to rest? Like if I want to make this for dinner can I make the dough in the morning and then put in the fridge. After work I come back to cook it?
