Loh Mee is a Malaysian staple and is one of my favourite noodle dishes ever. The noodles used in this popular dish resembles udon but is mostly made out of egg (hence its' yellow colour). The broth is rather thick as well and provides a rich base for the noodles. Usually seafood and vegetables (choy sum) are used, however do feel free to experiment yourself. The icing on the cake with this dish is definitely a dash or two of black vinegar. This should be done by the diner right before tucking into the dish. It's quite easy to whip up at home - will definitely prove to be popular!
