This is one of our favourites... Miss E once commented that my mee mamak is not as good as her father's mee should we still call this mee mamak??? The title of the blog would do ~ Cheat Mee Mamak! Taste like Mee Mamak but not cooked by a mamak... (by an Apek!!)...

  • Yellow noodles
  • 2 chopped garlic
  • 2 potatoes - cube and microwave
  • fish cakes - thinly sliced
  • 2 beancurd - deep fried and sliced
