Recipe: Mee Siam (Nyonya Spicy Rice Vermicelli)

I remembered back when I was in primary school, school canteen had this Indian stall tucked in one corner which sold Mee Siam and very often during recess time I would go and have my plate of Mee Siam which cost me only 30 cents. Oh boy, do I sound so old. I am not sure if Mee Siam is a Peranakan or Nyonya dish but what I know is that there are many varieties of Mee Siam and the one that I am sharing is more Nyonya in style. This dish was one of the most tedious noodle dish which I have prepared and seriously is not for the faint hearted. You will need to have time and patience. When I first saw this recipe (Source: Cooking for the President, by Wee Eng Hwa), I told myself I must try this out since it was cooked for dignities it must be of a certain standard. Overall, the result was great and it was worth the time and effort. Will I do it again, yes …
