Yee Mee

That day I don't know what noodle to order so I chose yee mee (MYR7.90) since I have not eaten it for a few years now. The noodle has the alkaline taste which I like. Since it was cooked and served in a claypot, I had to wait quite some time for it to be cool enough for consumption. Since when were fake crabsticks considered seafood?

  1. Haha. Got the word "crab" so it is a seafood. Lol.

    I also did not have yee mee for a long long time. I remember the last time I had it, I burnt myself. Too hot. Lol.

    1. I thought you cook other types of noodles for him since yee mein is tougher than the other noodles like mee suah, bihoon, yellow noodle, hor fun.

  3. I love claypot yee mee...but not my missus - she's not fond of the smell of the noodles. I thought that would put them in a class of their own, different from the rest.

    1. Actually I don't dislike the crabsticks, just that I don''t consider it as seafood as they are processed junk food.

  5. Ever since I started eating seafood noodles, fake crabstick has always been a major component in all of them. Sometimes the restaurateur will claim: "crabstics are not fake, they are made with crab meat plus flour", that kind of bullshit. I don't like them (the liars and the crabsticks) at all to be honest.

    1. I don't think they are made from crab meat. I think they are made from fish meat instead.

  6. Alkaline taste, meaning it was added with vinegar. I like vinegar soupy noodle.

  7. For someone who doesn't like salty food, I'm surprised you eat yee mee (I love yee mee by the way) coz these noodles are predominantly on the salty side.

    1. Eh, this yee mee itself is not salty at all. unless you mean the soup is salty. I have eaten some mee suah that is very salty and that is the mee suah noodle, not the soup.

  8. You actually like alkaline taste?? Most people cannot tahan. But I thought that was in yellow noodles and not yee mee.

    Eh crabsticks are a component for claypot yee mee in my client canteen too. Maybe become the new standard already.

    1. Yes I like. I can stand very strong alkaline taste. You are right, yellow noodle also has this alkaline taste. More and more people are using crabsticks in their dishes. Crabsticks are cheaper than real seafood, of course.
