Moxi Moxi Mee Rebus

Ask any non-Malays about Chinese prepared Malay food, and they will tell you it is a poor imitation, be it Assam Pedas, Mee Bandung or Mee Rebus. There are a few imitations in the old town, but the closest to Malay Mee Rebus is the Kuang Ah Restaurant by the river side, and that I suppose, is because it caters to a largely Malay clientele. I personally feel that the Kuang Ah version isn't exactly the Mee Rebus I would like to eat again and again. But Moxi Moxi? That's different. I have heard some people give glowing reports of its unique flavour. I wasn't convinced however, until I was teaching English to a group of apprentice techicians for repair of sewing machines. The training centre was close by and one afternoon, a good friend came by during lunch hour and brought me there.

How shall I describe the Mee Rebus. I don't really know, but it seems to be like a cross between Mee Bandung and Mee rebus. Apart from the usual stuff we get for Malay Mee Rebus ( boiled potato, tofu and boiled egg), this Chinese Mee Rebus seller added tofu skin to it with a liberal splash of sambal. The real difference lies in its gravy and the sambal. It's really delicious for a light lunch. Cost: Rm3.30.

How to get there? It is after Square One, which is next to Carrefour. Facing Square One is a block of double storey shop houses. Walk along the shophouses and you will find a prominent signboard announcing its presence.

Sorry for the rather blurry picture. It was taken with a phone camera.

Moxi Moxi. It is actually two shoplots, selling pre-cooked food as well as western food. A rather unusual name, but it sticks in your memory.
