Cooking the Penang Mee Rebus
The ingredients of all three dishes are almost interchangeable, except the pasembur is served with shredded cucumber and turnip instead of noodles. Many mamak hawkers also sell mee rebus and mee goreng at Chinese coffee shops as well as Chinese hawker centres, as the dish has gained much popularity among the Chinese in Penang as well.
Mee Rebus is a popular Penang hawker food that can be taken for breakfast, lunch and to a lesser extend, dinner. The noodle used is yellow egg noodles (mee) while the ingredients include potatoes, taukua (beancurd), bean sprout, prawn fritters, niau-choo chi (flour-batter fritters), egg, and squid.
Some of the most famous Mee Rebus Stalls in Penang have been handed down several generations. Famous mee rebus stalls include the one at Seng Lee Cafe of Bangkok Lane, the CRC Mee Rebus, and the Sultan Mee Rebus now operating at New World Park.
