The first one I tried was a chunky garlic and black pepper, however this one is mamak. What’s that? Here’s something from food5

“Mee goreng Mamak, or Mamak-style noodles, is a type of noodle dish from Malaysia that you can find at a lot of local roti canai eateries. Mee is “noodles” in Malay and goreng means “fried,” which is the method of cooking this meal. This dish is normally made with fresh egg noodles, boiled potatoes, pan-fried tofu, choy sum, and tossed with a delicious sauce.

This is a nostalgic dish that I grew up with. In the old days, youngsters liked to hang out at Mamak stalls as air-conditioned coffee shops were not common. Mamak stalls are often open-air with an open “kitchen.” You could see the chef flip and toss the roti, pull the milky tea, and of course toss these noodles in a big heated wok. The aroma of these dishes and the sound of the spatula clanking the wok always led me to the stall without fail. You don’t need to know the exact location, you just need to follow the sound and the smell.”

This sounds really good – let’s give t a try!
