Chinese Braised Tomato Noodles 番茄面

Today again about tomato ^_^. I have to post by this week because next week is school holiday and we are going to visit a state in Malaysia that we have never been there before, Kelantan (Let me know if you have any nice recommendation where to find good food or nice places to visit)..
Tomato noodles is famous in Sungai Lembing Pahang, and they use homemade Lembing noodles. I can't call my dish as Lembing tomato noodles since i did not use Lembing noodles..so i just called it as Chinese braised tomato noodles..

Sonia, on my 1st glimpse, it looks similar to mee rebus but it's not. Thanks for sharing this as I never know this noodle before. Going to Kelantan ah, ask Phong Hong, I think she is from Kelantan! Our school holidays won't start until 12th Apr.

这个真的是Ho Ho Jiak! 我喜欢。。

PH said...

Sedap, loh! Eh, if you go Kelantan (I haven't been there before) you must eat the Ayam Percik :)

kimmy said...

Hi Sonia, we just came back from Kelantan last week. Food outlets have changed. The night market selling yummy ayam percik no longer there. But do try the Bak Kut Teh and Braised Pig Trotters along Jln Kebun Sultan [Chinatown]. You may like it, quite different from elsewhere. My hubby likes it very much. Buy their pulut rice [good quality & cheap - RM 20/5Kg], nasi dagang rice and pulut hitam are really worth buying.

Happy Flour said...

I'm sure my boys will love this one dish meal, I had to bookmark this recipe. Thanks for sharing ;)

My Little Space said...

Hey Sonia, I've never been to Kelantan before....so wish you luck. :o) However, I'm sure you'll like it there. My hubby looking forward to arrange a tour all the way from Mersing to Kelantan and then came all the way down from Perlis...someday. Still very much looking forward to. Hopefully, can arrange after my girl STPM by end of the year.
Btw, your tomato noodle looks really interesting. I think my kids would love it too.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Phong Hong, saya sure makan ayam percik, hehehe..

Kimmy, Thanks for sharing. I sure buy some beras beras ^_^

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Sona, I did Pai Thai last time but no time to take recipe. I will try to cook again soon.

At a glance I thought it was Mee Bandung. They look delicious. Kelantan is one state that I always wanted to go but never got the chance. Hopefully one day. By the way the MFF event will be state of Kelantan next month hosted by me. Hopefully you get to participate.

Angel @ Cook.Bake.Love said...

I like to order tomato soup base ramen whenever I see it available , usually sold in stalls operate by mainland Chinese.

Hi Sonia, this noodle dish must be very appetizing. I made the Sarawak version before, I am wondering if the sauce taste very different.
