Mee Rebus Sungai Dua (Sungai Dua Gravy Noodles)


Dear Readers,

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. This time I am sharing with you a dish called Sungai Dua Gravy Noodles or Mee Rebus Sungai Dua. For those of you who have no idea what Sungai Dua is, it is a town in Penang, Malaysia. It is located in the east part of Penang Island. The nearest town from Sungai Dua is Gelugor. The name Sungai Dua is because it is located between two rivers hence the name Sungai Dua (Two Rivers). It grew in population as a result of the opening of USM (Science University of Malaysia) in 1969. The site of USM was originally the British military barracks and also served as the Japanese military campsite during World War II. The majority of early settlements were Chinese Hokkien.

Few years back I visited some relatives who are residing in Gelugor,Penang. I was served with this noodle dish and I took the opportunity to learn how to prepare this noodle dish. Now I am sharing with you this delicious dish.

Enjoy the video.
