Mee Jawa or Jawa Noodle is quite similar to mee rebus which is popular hawker food in Singapore and Malaysia but Mee Jawa does not use salted soya bean (taucheo) unlike mee rebus.
Made with yellow noodles accompanied with thick, spicy and slightly sweet gravy. The gravy is thickened with mashed sweet potato, seasoned with curry powder and dried shrimps. This dish is garnished with a hard boiled egg, limes, red chili, fried tofu, fried onion and bean sprouts.
