Birthday Mee Suah

In our family, we have Mee Suah for the birthday boy or girl. This is Mee Suah for the birthday boy that we had yesterday.

The small bowl for the ladies....
Chicken and Mee Suah Soup

Chicken Soup boiled with carrots and bitter melon. The soup taste very good!
Top it up with an egg and mee suah and ah......

The bigger bowls for the men....
Chicken and Mee Suah Soup

It was delicious and heart warming.
Thanks mummy for importing the mee suah, and aunt for cooking it.

Thanks Zannnie. :-)


jiaying,
ya, whenever we eat mee suah, we alwyas remember our late maternal grandma who absolutely loves mee suah.

Anon,
The men were eating while I took the other half. LOL

Nic,
My first taste of foie gras was when i was 17 i think in Oz, in the form of pate, and I hated it. LOL...

But recently, i ate some nicely prepared ones.

But Mee Suah still taste nicer. hehe...

I love mee suah! It's like my comfort food. Terrific on rainy days. :)

Keropok Man said...

BSG,
Yup. The soup was boiled for few hours somemore then added the mee suah in. :-)

Life for Beginners,
Yes, comfort food indeed. Not only on rainy days for me.

Was the birthday boy you? Hehe.

Happy birthday!!

PS: I love mee suah too. Now enjoying this big packet of it my parents bought from Melaka. Won't break easily nor absorb all the soup!

Keropok Man said...

Hungry Cow,

*blush* yes *blush*

Oh, the mee suah we had was this one that's from KL, it does not break easily and does not suck up all the soup too! (maybe same company one!)

Dutchie said...

R there different kinds of mee suah in SG these days ? Far as I can remember, we had only the type that tends to soak up the soup or coagulate into a mushy mass !

Just wonderd if this version of mee suah is hing hwa ? Our Hokkien mee suah consist of sliced pork, scrambled eggs with ginger n spring onions. The soup is lifted with the fragrance of the chinese mushrooms. For the birthday sarah or abraham, we get 2 boiled eggs as extra while the rest gets only one.
This tradition has made way for cakes n high tea since I was a teenager. Having read this post, I'm in the mood for some nostalgia.
Am heading out to Amsterdam this saturday to buy some mee suah (packed like a pack of spaghetti, so dont know how it will taste). I like the pork ribs in the soup !
Must get ur aunt to co-blog the recipe here lah *wink*

Dutchie said...

Silly of me to assoicate bouillon with pork ribs ... my mistake here. Chicken soup take less time to prepare ! Good tip.

Keropok Man said...

Nah, the Mee Suah that we talk about is from neighbouring country. The ones from there are more delicious! :-)

You make me wonder now how Amsterdam Mee suah is like! hehe..

Google or Bing or Yahoo for Mee Suah recipe lah! Boil your fav soup and then add in mee suah, simple!
