Street Food - Mee Siam

Also Known As:
Mee Siam, Siamese Noodle, Mie Siam



Average Price Per Serving:
SGD $2.50 - $4



Description:
Mee Siam orginated in Thailand, and was subsequently adopted by the Peranakan culture. As a result, Mee Siam in Singapore can be found at both Malay and Chinese stalls.


Mee Siam consists of thin rice vermicelli noodles (Bee Hoon) in a thin, sour and spicy gravy. Mee Siam is usually garnished with bean sprouts, fried tofu puffs, fried shallots, chives and lime.

Some hawkers also include a hard boiled egg.

The thin, sour and spicy gravy for Mee Siam is made with water, fermented soy beans, dried shrimp, chili, garlic and tamarind paste.

A good Mee Siam will have gravy that is thin, flavourful and not too watery. It should have a hint of both sourness and sweetness.

Mee Siam is typically eaten for breakfast.

These are the top 3 stalls which I feel serve the best Mee Siam in Singapore.
