Bangkok Lane Mee Mamak

Time Out says

With a reputation of monolithic proportions, Bangkok Lane’s Mee Mamak is always in the forefront of discussions about sublime noodles and has been featured on various television food programs. Seng Lee Cafe, a coral pink coffee shop on the intersection of Burma and Bangkok streets, needs no signage, as Mahboob Zakaria’s mamak-style mee is the stuff of legends. Opt for lightly moist (mee goreng) or soaking wet (mee rebus) noodles; either way, they’ll be doused in a sweet-savoury sauce made from mashed sweet potatoes and prawn stock. Fried rojak bits, tofu cubes, bean sprouts and hunks of potatoes are a given, but you can add chewy cuttlefish or a hard-boiled egg. If your craving coincides with bad weather, fear not - simply just drive up to the stall, holler your order and they’ll have it delivered to your car.
