Shake Mee – Start your day with Mee, but don’t get Mee crazy!
Do you remember Face To Face, a popular Sarawak noodle brand from Malaysia, which opened its first overseas franchise set-up in Singapore last year? They have just introduced a new foodcourt concept at Cookhouse@Jem on 13 March 2017. Get ready to shake it up and slurp it down with freshly-made noodles and delicious ingredients!
Serving Pan Mee and Kolo Mee in Japanese bowls, their serving size starts from kawaii bowl at $3.30 each to ippai bowl at $6 each. Our favourite is the Chilli Pan Mee served with mince meat, anchovies, kai lan, onsen egg, and house special dry chilli. The noodles have a good bite, while the chilli knocked our socks off. The anchovies accentuated the savouriness of this dish. Being one who favours salty food, the chilli pan mee definitely won me over.
You can also choose interesting flavours such as the Creation Pork Pan Mee, Curry Pan Mee, Mala Pan Mee, and others. Consisting of braised egg, kai lan, crackers and pork, the Creation Pork Pan Mee reminded us of Taiwan’s braised pork rice. The pork is succulent and flavoursome, and we liked the crunchiness from the crackers in each bite.
Mala Pan Mee contains shredded pork, pickled tuber mustard, peanut, roasted seaweed and sesame. It’s more numbing than it is spicy.
The Kolo Mee is also a bestseller and you can choose to order it in white (traditional), black (dark soy sauce), red (chilli sauce) or mix (black + chilli). This bowl of wriggly, al dente egg noodles served with minced pork, char siew, fried wonton, and kai lan is very enjoyable. The noodles are handmade daily without any preservatives. Check out the takeaway version which is very nicely packaged. This stall uses “chork”, giving you the option to choose from using chopsticks or fork for the noodles.
Shake Mee also offers Chicky Pops ($2.90 each) which make a really good afternoon snack! They come in two flavours, namely Sea-Yo-Later and K-Pops. The former is drenched in mayonnaise with seaweed and sesame. We already found the little chicken pieces addictive, so we believe that kids will love them too! K-pops is drizzled with Korean spicy sauce with sesame. The taste is quite unusual, and we’re not sure if this will appeal to the local tastebuds.
Have fun shaking it up before slurping it down (that’s why it’s called shake mee)! If you need a meal that isn’t too heavy to perk you up, Shake Mee is here to satisfy.
