A heartwarming bowl of Prawn Mee

March 4, 2009

One of my favorite comfort food is Prawn Mee (or Hokkien Mee to Penangites) in Malaysia. While my mother’s Pan Mee still top my list but a piping hot bowl of Hokkien Mee comes to a close second. It makes it even better when the Hokkien Mee is prepared by my mom on a rainy day.

When it’s raining outside, as it has been for a week and a half in Malaysia, outdoor activities takes a rain check while indoors becomes a perfect brewing pot for interesting conversations. Imagine slurping noodles swimming in an intensely flavored broth made from pork bones, shrimps and spices, while talking about …everything and nothing at all. :)

I need to ask mom for her recipe. Staring at that picture is just making me hungry all over again!

You are killing me and now I want one, too. By the way, recently, I bought a Penang Hokkien Mee maggie (brand Ibumie) and I tell you, it’s sooooo darn close to the real thing. I slurped it up.
