Nothing warms more than a sincere bowl of familiar Indonesian noodles to one working in Singapore. My Indonesian colleague’s regular praises for You & Mee Noodle Place at Novena finally got me to dine there for lunch one fine workday without her. 😛
The shop menu is simple with 6 main noodles, some side dishes, desserts and drinks choices for you to choose from at very reasonable prices. The lady owner is an Indonesian Chinese from Jakarta. She was really nice to talk to and patient with explaining the various mee choices.
After ordering, a numbered paper slip and drinks will be dispensed. Customers are expected to collect their food items from the collection counter once their queue numbers are displayed on the electronic display panel. The collection process does resemble a visit to a local polyclinics medicine dispensary.
My Mee Kangkong looks really appetiting in its thick, brown gravy. This mee is for people who love strong flavored dishes. The gravy is sweet & goes perfectly well with the springy noodles.
Mee Bakso by comparison is the less flamboyant member of the Indonesian Mee Family. The soup base is slightly salty, mild and overall taste similar to the chinese clear yellow noodles soup.
Mee Ayam was presented with lean chicken meat, mushroom & green vegetables. The mee on its own does look a little dry hence the reason for a bowl of soup. Very healthy option for office ladies on a diet.
Their Hot Barley is apparently quite a hit with ladies. Both my female colleagues loved it.
We only came to realise the purpose of the condiments chart after we have finished our noodles. They have recommended concocation for their various noodles! Arghhh.. our noodles could have tasted even better.
The condiments were clearly numbered to make it idiotproof for diners to follow their recommendations. Obviously…we are worse than idiots…
You & Mee offers authentic taste of Indonesian Mee Culture at very affordable prices. Pity we did not manage to experience the full flavor of the noodles with the recommended condiments. We will reserved that for the next round! Here are the full details of the restaurant:
