Hello! I’m here for a short post. Before I flew back to London, Gloria’s mum made a pot of mee siam for a gathering with both our families. The gravy had a fantastic spicey-tangy flavour to and a faint sweet aftertaste to it, probably from the generous amount of onions used in the stewing process. What a delicious plate of food that was.
For the uninitiated, mee siam is a thin rice noodle dish in a sour achar gravy (achar is a sort of Indian/Southeast Asian pickle), served with fried beancurd cubes. Prawns and beansprouts optional. Things always taste better when they are home-made!
