My mom is a pro cook. During my stay back home, she made me one of my favorite Malaysian-inspired dishes that is definitely her signature. Her take on the Malaysian curry mee soup is mind blowing. She grew up in Malaysia, so a lot of her cooking is influenced from there. Though this soup is extremely simple to make, its intense use of exotic spices makes one think otherwise. It's a dish where the flavor really does all of the talking. I love it with a hard boiled egg thrown in. I'm still in the process of perfecting my mom's way of cooking this. Once I get it down, I'll make it for all of my friends. Dude, I'm getting myself hungry again. Makes me want to go back to Southeast Asia again and eat the real thing. What else is new?
