Meehoon Goreng


I suddenly had a craving for meehoon goreng. Malay style with lots of chilies. Besides, I had an awesome Sambal Jate that would go brilliantly with the meehoon goreng.

So I soaked a handful of meehoon while I went about deboning a chicken thigh and marinating the meat. I had earlier made some blended chili paste and it is really convenient when cooking spicy stuff like this.


My meehoon goreng had simple ingredients, just meehoon, chicken and cabbage. Of course I had to go through a bit of trouble to pound some garlic and onions.

The end result? I thought it was awesome, if I may say so myself. What made the meehoon even more awesome was eating it with Sambal Jate. Wow, it was so appetizing.

    1. Yes, it is very soft because I soaked it longer.

  4. Voila! Bingo! I just spotted a packet of famous Thai Erawan's brand finest mihun last week and bought it home. I told my wife that I will fry the exact fried mihun that weird freako like her eats. She wants a super dry mihun that could choke her throat. So I will use your ingredients to experiment ok?? Kamsiah Hamida Phong Hong!

  5. There's nothing like a simple plate of meehoon goreng...yum. It's also one thing I've never attempted to cook at home as I'm afraid it'll get all stuck to the pan or, worse still, all broken up with too much frying and tossing! O_o

    1. It does get stuck to the pan sometimes :( But this time not so much because I made sure to keep the pan moist by adding a bit of water and then at the end, quickly stir fry it before it got too dry.
