Why I Love This Recipe

Mee siam is a dish of thin rice vermicelli of hot, sweet and sour flavours, originated in Penang but popular among the Malay and Peranakan communities throughout Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, although the dish is called "Siamese noodle" in Malay and thus appears to be inspired or adapted from Thai flavours when Thailand was formerly known as Siam. I like this dish because it's rather spicy. It's rather tasty especially the noodles are very smooth. It means that I've also immersed myself with Malay food culture.
