Mee Siam Goreng

This fried noodle dish is light and fresh, and you have the option to make it spicy or mild by adjusting the amount of chillies. This is medium spiciness with maximum yumminess. This takes a little cutting, blending and preparing, but it’s worth it and if there’s any leftover just keep in the freezer and heat some up for the perfect midnight snack.
