One of the must try local food if you happen to visit JB. Mee rebus Haji Wahid is quite popular among foodies from Johor and Singapore. If you happen to ask any locals where to get the best mee rebus in JB, i bet most of em would say Mee Rebus Haji Wahid. For those wondering what is mee rebus;
“The dish is made of yellow egg noodles, which are also used in Hokkien mee, with a spicy slightly sweet curry-like gravy. The gravy is made from sweet potatoes, curry powder, water, salted soybeans, dried shrimps, and peanuts. The dish is garnished with a hard boiled egg, calamansi limes, spring onions, Chinese celery, green chillies, fried firm tofu (tau kwa), fried shallots and bean sprouts. Some eateries serve it with beef, though rarely found in hawker centres, or add dark soy sauce to the noodles when served. The dish also goes well with satay.” (Source:wiki)
As usual, i shamelessly copied wikipedia..hahaha.
So here it is. Looks simple ain’t it. A plate costs Rm4 (S$1.55). The portion is just nice, not too big, not too small. What make Haji Wahid mee rebus different is that;
1. They use telor pindang which is uniquely Johor. Though i’m not sure of telor pindang history, i know that this is a common giveaway in Johor Malay Weddings. The eggs looks a tad bit brownish, as it is boiled with various types of herbs. If you are wondering wheather its the same as chinese herbal eggs, no its not. Telor Pindang is a bit milder than the chinese herbal eggs.
2. The gravy is just Wow! delish. Not sure how to describe it. Hurmmm, thick, tasty, wonderfull.. haha.
3. Theres also this keropok like thing on top. which makes every spoonful of this mee rebus cruncy and tastier.
So if you happen to come to Johor, pass by Angsana or someway afar and craving for mee rebus, i would totally recommend to try out mee rebus Hj Wahid. p/s be ready for a long que if you come by on weekend or holidays.
