Recipe of Mee Jawa

Have you tasted Mee Jawa or Jawa Mee before? Share with you a little secret, when I asked my hubby whether he tasted Mee Jawa, he asked me “what is that?” *I almost fainted* :)

So you see, since he knows nothing about Mee Jawa, of course he never buy or treat me in Singapore. I only have chance to taste Jawa Mee when back to Malaysia. Again, I only have chance to taste my favourite when back to hometown once or twice a year. :(
