You will see the Jalan Tengah Burger stall in front of you. Nope - not the burger again, just drive further down to T-junction, the mosque should be on your left, turn left to the end road.

Tasty & Crispy bite

The Stall

I don't understand why the name is not Mee Jawa Goreng instead of they label as Mee Goreng :-) Arghhh, for me, as far as the fried noodle is tasty, there's it!

I will order extra crispy fried cake definitely, wanna have a crispy moment?

In fact, it's Jawa noodle. This is what I can conclude. Looks similar like Indian Mee Goreng but the taste differs slightly. The attraction on this noodle is the crunchy groundnuts and thin crispy fried cake. Fried noodles itself not spicy. Ensure you squeeze the given lime cut on the noodles while serve hot. Your tongue immediately will enjoy the sweet and sour taste when noodles enter your mouth.

Hard to resist?

One thing, the fried noodles not completely dry version. It serves with specially cooked tomato sauce, thus little bit wet when you notice the presentation.

Call it Mee Goreng or Mee Jawa :-)

The thin crispy cake serves on top of the fried noodles. Showering with groundnuts and the special cook tomato sauce. Presentation activate your hunger then. Enjoy!
