Mee Rebus
A classic Malay dish that we will find in almost every hawker centers and a comfort food that everyone would like to have on a rainy day! There are many variations to the gravy as we see some might use normal potatoes for thickening the gravy while some uses the sweet potatoes. Both taste equally delicious and authentic. You might try a different variations each time to taste your preferences. The beefs are optional but it definitely elevate the flavor of the gravy with the rich beef broth.
