Power Mee Rebus: Rahim Malay Food

Mee Rebus is an interesting dish...Malay in origin, but using chinese noodles. Perhaps unique to this part of the world.

This is a dish which is deceptively heavy...the thick heavy gravy, the noodles fill one up, even though sometimes when the dish is served, it looks very small.

My friend Eddie introduced this stall, round where he lived...

Indeed, the stall is supposed to open at 11:30, and by that time a queue has started to form. The owners were there, but the lights were not on, and we had to wait till noon to get the food...but it was worth the wait...they call this Power Mee Rebus

A thick, generous serving of satay sauce smothers the entire dish, covering everything...delicious...very fragrant, beautiful satay sauce aroma. Pushing open the sauce, reveals something I have not seen before in a mee rebus...a large slab of sliced chicken thigh...

Very tender chicken...goes beautifully with the rest of the dish. The nicely cooked yellow noodles providing remarkable background for the chicken and the wonderful satay sauce.

Very highly of the better mee rebus I have eaten in a long time.
