Mee Siam for breakfast

An aerial shot of this most delectable dish. Its pretty good for breakfast too :-)

A bit of background on this dish- 'Mee Siam' actually means 'Siamese noodles' and was a dish inspired from Thailand. It has become a Nyonya speciality in Singapore- and also prepared by the Chinese, Indians and Malays. In Malaysia, they tend to serve the dish dry without the gravy- this gravy version is more popular in Singapore. I have made my broth very light and sourish here which follows more of a Malay style- some stalls also make it quite heavy with coconut milk and more reddish with the addition of sweet sambal.
