This fried noodle dish is sweet and spicy and the noodle used is the fresh yellow noodles of which is not sold here, so I have to homemade them - refer to fresh homemade hokkien mee from this blog.

400g fresh yellow noodles
2 pieces of squid which has been cooked with chilly
4 eggs
2 pieces taukua(firm tofu)
100g mustard leaves (sawi), cut into 3cm lengths
100g bean sprouts
1 green chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
1 potato, boiled and cut into ½ cm-thick slices
1 tomato, cut into wedges
1/2 a small onion - sliced
1/2 small lime

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
4 tbsp ground chilli
4 tbsp tomato ketchup
2 tbsp water


Chopped spring onions
Shallot crisps


Heat 1/4 cup oil and fry the sliced taukau and leave aside

Heat remaining oil and fry sliced onion, Add in noodles and stir. Add in seasoning.

Break in the eggs and stir until egg is cooked.

Add mustard leaves and bean sprouts and fry for one minute. Add squid, potatoes, tomato and green chillies.

Squeeze half a small lime into the mee and continue to fry until dry.

Dish out and serve garnished with chopped spring onions and shallot crisps.


no soya sauce or salt is added because these fresh yellow noodles can be salty enough.

Hi Lily,

You are an inspiration! Love your site.

How about more Nonya food like sambal and oh yes your baked siew pau?

I am big on noodles and vegetables less on the meat dishes. Oh yes fish/safood dishes too.

Love and blessings.

I tried this recipe and it works really well. My only bit of setback is not being to get the type of noodle that I like. I got "chow mein" noodles but they were a bit tough, even after being soaked in water for a little while. It's really hard to find the right type of noodle in the US.

You have a wonderful site! It takes 3 hours for Mamak Mee Goreng:
1) drive 60 miles to Chicago,
2) hantam ais kacang and MMG,
3) drive 60 miles home with more MMG.

You can fry 4 huge plates with this recipe and it all depends on how hungry the eaters are.
