Hokkien Mee. If you know, you know. There are so many debates over the many different types of Hokkien Mee. One thing everyone can agree upon - they are all very good in their own way. We'll celebrate this iconic noodle dish with roots in China's Fujian (Hokkien) province with noodles galore and a flavorful punch of sambal on side. We can't give out tickets to Kuala Lumpur, but this will get us there in spirit!
