…and that happened to be the first time as well, I enjoyed the mee sua (thread/string noodles/Foochow longevity noodles) in the traditional Foochow red wine chicken soup so much that I just had to share a post on it on Facebook to tell everyone about it.
It so happened that a very old friend going back to the late 70’s and early 80’s in Kanowit saw it and commented that the lady was related to her husband, his cousin to be exact (or maybe it was somebody else who saw it and told me that they were related). Gee! Small world!!!
I went back there again that day and now that I knew who she…
…was, I had a good look at her and yes, she did look like everyone in the family. I asked her and she confirmed the fact and after that, we had a really good chat about everybody and everything Kanowit.
I had the mee sua (RM7.00)…
…again and probably it was already lunchtime and she was coming to the bottom of the pot so the soup had traces of the ang chao (lees) residue in the wine. Nonetheless, it was very good, as good as when I had it the first time so if ever I should feel like having mee sua, this will definitely be my first pick.
While I was there, a few others came and they too had the mee sua. Obviously, she is quite popular and has her followers. She does not have much else at her stall though, just toast done in a few different ways or kompia or mantao, not anything that I would fancy.
