You’re so very special…

When I went to the supermarket at Simpang Tiga here that day, after I was through with my shopping, I decided to walk over to the SEDC Hawker Centre to look at what they have at the stalls there. I think we have not been there since the African wrapped up his business, left and never came back.

There is a satay stall…

*Notice the aircraft cabin food trolley? I wonder how come they have one!*

…there now and the things on their menu include their mee jawa special (RM7.00) and another one, the mee jawa super special (RM10.00)…

I asked what the super special was and I was told that it would include a few sticks of satay, one fried egg and I thought I heard udang (prawns) and of course, I said I wanted that.

Obviously, I was mistaken and what the girl said was probably something tulang (bone)…

I was a little disappointed with the fried egg but thankfully, the yolk was still runny so all was forgiven. The satay wasn’t anything to get excited about – I felt it was over-marinated and became over-tenderised till it was kind of soft/mushy, not quite the texture of meat as one would know it. There was not that much meat attached to the bones but they were great – I did enjoy it very much, just that there was mostly bone.

The mee jawa in itself was very good. I loved the gravy and should I happen to be around here again, I wouldn’t mind going for the regular. I don’t mind the egg but I am not that keen on the satay nor the bones.

The SEDC HAWKER CENTRE (2.306488, 111.818695) MDS MART is located at Simpang Tiga at the end of Jalan Kampung Hilir/Jalan Awang Ramli Amit (formerly Race Course Road),  facing the MDS MART building.

  1. There is a Malay stall at 7th Mile, near Hong Leong Bank, selling very nice mee jawa. Their special includes 3 sticks of satay and it only cost RM5. The mee jawa gravy is super nice but unfortunately this seller is like Chipsmore, now you see me, now you don’t. Really have to depend on your luck if you are driving all the way to eat her mee jawa.

    I really cannot understand how those people can do business like that. Lots of them like that here…and they complain that some people are so rich, can afford to send their children to study overseas.

    There are quite a number of places here with really nice mee jawa but I do not recall any that will give satay with it. One place gives prawn fritters – have not been for a long time. I think I will hop over one of these days.

  2. I just took Mee Jawa for breakfast yesterday… nothing like yours, of course, no satay, no bones… mine is the normal with beancurd, hard boiled egg and some crackers…

    Crackers? Don’t think we have that here. Tofu puff and egg and some places, they give bits of beef or others will give shredded chicken.

  3. Saya jadi penasaran bagaimana rasanya menyantap sate dan mie Jawa secara bersaman …, ini belum dan wajib saya coba 😊.

    I am curious about how it feels to eat satay and Javanese noodles together … I haven’t and I must try it 😊.

    It’s killing two birds with one stone – you get to enjoy the mee jawa and at the same time, you can eat the satay too…but without the peanut sauce (kuah kacang satay). Since they are not cooked together, one does not affect the taste of the other.

    By the way, thank you so much for dropping by and commenting. Do hop over anytime, always welcome.

  4. It looks like a rather strange combination. I have never seen mee jawa like this.

    Well, if the shoe fits, wear it! I wouldn’t mind going for it again if the satay was good and there had been more meat on the bones. This isn’t half as bad as this thing with Sarawak laksa right here in Sibu – they are serving it with pork liver and intestines!!! Sacrilege!!!

  5. Mee jawa with satay, never seen this combination in sg before.

    I wonder where you can get satay in Singapore. There used to be the Satay Club by the sea in the 70’s but I hear no more, and was definitely not near the sea after the land there was reclaimed.

  6. I am rather attracted to the bright, cheerful yellow of the facade.

    Nice place but not that many people. Probably they need a few good anchor tenants to draw in the crowd.
