Mee Siam

I may have mentioned before that I love Asian food. Sweet, spicy, hot and sour. This hot and spicy vegan mee siam is a wonderful, quick meal to get your taste buds tingling! It is said to be originated from the Malay and Peranakan cultures with some Thai (Siamese) twist in the flavour profile.



Apart from the delicious spiciness to this dish, I think one of the reasons I like it some much is down to the toppings. Spring onions, chillies and lime wedges are fabulous with any food of this type. Halved limau kasturi, a kind of lime often accompanied the dish. A fresh squirt from these limes is a must. It gives the noodles a bright and zesty flavor that whets the appetite.


The Mee Siam I grew up with came with a variety of colourful toppings. My mother would make this for us on the weekends and we would enjoying and even ask for seconds. There's a Singapore version that's similar, and is served with a spicy gravy, but I decided to go for the Malaysian version - which is a hot and spicy dry noodle dish. Grab yourself a large glass of water (ok, beer) because these noodles are waaaarm!
