Nawra Fine Food : Mee Rebus with Fried Sotong

This stall started on 10 December 2016 in Chong Boon Food Centre is from the same guys that served the famous Nasi Ayam in Yishun Central since 1994 as stated on their Facebook though there is no indication the exact location of the stall name of this famous Nasi Ayam. It also mentioned right there that they "wanted to revolutionise our favourite local dishes but still maintain the taste that Singaporeans love".

I was there on a Sunday during lunch and there was no queue. I decided to go with Mee Rebus Rangup at $5.00 and there is also Mee Rebus Tulang at $5.00 and the usual Mee Rebus at $3.00 on their menu. Sotong Rangup is served as side dish for $3.00 if you want an extra portion. The meaning of 'rangup' in English is crunchy, those fried Sotong pieces have a nice crunchiness and not greasy, too. The well-seasoned gravy was not too starchy but still managed to coat every strand of noodle well. It is also served along with a whole boiled egg then garnished with cut green chillies and sambal chilli to serve. The sambal chilli has a mild spiciness with a hint of sweetness. This might not be the best Mee Rebus in Ang Mo Kio but it is worth a try if you happen to be there. 

I also ordered Nasi Lemak Sotong at $6.50. There is the original Nasi Lemak at $3.00. Their rice is steamed over water rather than cooked in the water using a rice cooker. This is the traditional way of cooking Nasi Lemak which not many is doing it right now, the other one is Nasi Kukus at Selegie, near Little India MRT station. Such a method of cooking resulted in a more grainer bite and more fragrant. It was served with a whole piece of fried Sotong that was chopped into slices and sprinkled with spicy dried chilli powder together with a fried egg and a handful of ikan belis with sambal chilli by the side. The level of spiciness of the sambal chilli is not to be unestimated. 

The service was attentive and friendly.
