Our online editor shares her favourite treat for April
For every month that passes, it has become increasingly difficult for me to choose my food of the month – especially with the multitude of delicious dishes that have passed through my palates recently. However, since I have a weakness for noodles – be it Mie Ayam Abang-Abang (chicken noodles sold by cart-pushing hawkers), Chinese-style Bakmi(noodles with minced pork or chicken) or Bakmi Jogja Goreng (Javanese-style fried noodles) – this time around I’ve chosen the signature creation of Bakmi Kepiting 78E Ayau. A favourite of mine during my childhood years, its Bakmi Kepiting is topped with plenty mouth-watering crabmeat and deserves its time in the sun as my food of the month. Have a go at it, and you’ll get what I’m saying.
