Family recipes usually make the best meals. These are the recipes that are handed down to us and we in turn will hand down to the next generation. Indeed, you can’t beat the taste of home. Of all our family recipes, dry Mee Siam is our favourite. Some believe that the name of the dish refers to Siam, the old name for Thailand, and that the dish is influenced by Thai cuisine, while others believe that the dish is Malay or Peranakan in origin. For us, our roots would definitely be Peranakan because our great-grandmother was from Penang and she was Perankan!

The key to this dish is the combination of spiciness and sourness. Each added ingredient builds layers of flavour to this dish. We believe that it is the sweet, spicy and tangy taste that makes the dish really appetizing and have us craving for more!

Of course, we cannot share our full family recipe because it is after all a family secret but we can share some key ingredients which makes our Rempah so robust and flavourful.
