Judging from the patrons who were eating at the tables, majority were having Shi Xian’s mee siam. So it seems that mee siam is the popular choice over mee rebus? Well that seems alittle overstatement. Let’s give the mee siam a taste.
The beehoon was well blanched, not overly broken up. Sliced eggs, bean sprouts and puffy tau pok were added to give it an extra crunch to every bite. Most importantly, the main star would be the gravy and it was really unique in its own ways.
Strongly flavoured with dried shrimps, it has a aroma that is hard to nail down. It was tangy with lime probably, and delicately spicy. And to add to the mix, their homemade belachan chili was a great addition to an explosion of flavour in the mouth.
At $2.50 a plate and with such uniqueness, it is no wonder why their stall is always filled with long queue. Yummy!
