Mum’s Simple Egg Mee Suah Soup
Update (19 Aug 2014): First posted in Jun 2009, now updated with new photos and improved recipe.
Living nearby my mum definitely has its perks. This post was a result of sneaking over to her place during lunch time. This simple homely dish was something I took for granted in the past and now miss terribly (she stopped cooking for several years and only resumed last year). My mum used to whip up this simple one-dish meal of egg mee sua soup (鸡蛋面线汤) when I was in the pm session in secondary school. She cooked this whenever the kitchen is low in fresh food supplies, and/or when she need to cook in a jiffy.
The basic ingredients are just mee sua (seasoned with sesame oil) and egg. For the soup, it is just plain water and soy sauce. Since I have not eaten this for a long time, my mum insisted to add the pork shabu-shabu and pacific clams as a sumptuous treat for me. But trust me, the basic egg and mee sua bowl is what I grew up on, and that is delicious too!
