Mee Tai Mak @ NUS Science Canteen

Have not had any post from the usual very economical food that colleagues and I have for our lunch. You know you can have so many combination of food from the sale stall. While I was deciding, I suddenly thought of the Lo Shi Fen / Mee Tai Mak that I had at a place called "Canteen" too.

This Mee Tai Mak at this canteen is 7 times cheaper though. LOL...

My order to the uncle selling was: "Lao Su Fen, Gan De, Niang Kuai, Chan Chan".
(Mee Tai Mak noodles, Dry Version, $2 (which is the large version of it), Mixed. )

Mixed (chan1 chan1) is for those who wants to have almost all the ingredient you can find on display counter at the stall. It's a pick of a tiny bit of everything. 1 fishball, a few ngor hiong slices, 1 wanton, 1 piece of fried wanton, few pieces of mushrooms, few pieces of char siu, few pieces of braised pork, some minced pork, etc.. Always looks satisfying!

For those who wondered what is "lao su fen" / "mee tai mak" / "niao zhi sai".
It's whitish fat and short noodles.

Greetings from Canada:

Haven't been here for a while because the cakes and ice cream photos aren't too exciting. I'm here more for oriental/exoctic food. But I read about nyonya cakes and haven't seen any blogs featured them.

Anyway, this Mee Tai Mak is an interesting post because I have never heard of Mee Tai Mak. But it looked delicious!

Greetings from Canada as well.. hahaha.. didn't know there were so many reading from the western hemisphere.

I love Mee Tai Mak.. especially when they use it in laksa! Unfortunately, hard to get this kind of noodle here in the supermarkets.
