Mee Siam (Spicy Rice Vermicelli) RecipeDecember 30th, 2008Malaysian Food, Recipes, Malaysian Recipes, Recipes26 Comments
Mee Siam or “Siamese noodles” is basically spicy fried rice vermicelli with various toppings such as shrimp, chicken, fried firm tofu, and shredded omelet. Mee Siam is usually served with a piece of kalamansi lime (the juice gives an extra tangy kick to the noodles) and a dollop of sambal on the side.
When I was researching for Mee Siam recipes, I came across two distinct variations: dry vs. wet. The version I am sharing today is Malaysian Mee Siam recipe, which is dry. Singapore Mee Siam is often wet and topped with gravy.
Regardless of the regional adaptations, Mee Siam is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia and Singapore. It’s delicious, appetizing and a crowd pleaser.
