Now, mee hoon is not only for tea-time. It can be eaten as breakfast, lunch or even dinner! The best thing about this mee hoon* is not about the flavours but the generous amount of shrimp put inside it. Easy to prepare and quick to make, the perfect modern Malaysian meal to keep up with the fast-paced life we are living today. Not a big fan of seafood? A vegetarian? Customize the recipe according what suits your taste**.
