Rosli Mee Rebus, Masjid India

Weekday. Workday. Heavy breakfast day. So what to have for lunch?


Had this a few times since I first read it in the delicious mamak-masak food blog who in turn was enticed by babe in the city kl's post. Ah, the benefits of blog-hopping.

This however is the first time I 'tapau-ed' (meaning packed / take away in a Malaysianised slang) to savour in office.

As the norm with most food stalls, it came in a red thin plastic bag for easy carrying. Inside, a styrofoam box (audible sounds of disgust by environmentalists) and a small plastic bag with the sinful gravy.
Open styrofoam box (sounds turned to high-pitch screams) ... aisay, forgot to turn over the half hard-boiled egg for better aesthetic view.
Pour in sinful peanut gravy. Yes, drown drown drown the mee ...
1) Bus number 11 and a trickle of sweat, free
2) Mee Rebus + Taukua (that's the sliced fried beancurd) was RM3.40 (USD1)

Location: In Masjid India area, behind Hanifa Textile Building, directly opposite the entrance of its basement carpark

For the uninitiated, bus number 11 here means leg work / walk / transportation by means of using own 2 legs. Used to be favourite 'slang' during my schooldays. Haven't heard this for ages though

When I ta pau food from the pasar malam also like that... kind of used to the white styrafome

Tummythoz said...

Around Masjid Jamek Malay rice stalls do use banana leaf & newspaper. This with gravy so no choice.

Kakakaka...for awhile I thought how nice of our govt to provide free bus service. Rupa-rupanya jalan kaki! Kakaka..first time hearing this slang. ;-)

jason said...

LOL, heard of that slang before but it's not popular in Ipoh :D

Kok said...

If there're little bit of taugeh, then it'll be nicer!:P

Tummythoz said...

tankiasu, maybe it's only popular in d northern states. Glad u enjoyed that tidbit.

jason, is there any other way to say it? Btw, u here in KL yet?

kok, there were loads but hidden under other ingredients. I forgot to 'korek' out before taking pic.

cookies_cream said...

The sauce of the mee rebus looks heavenly yummy leh! To be honest, I never try any mee rebus before (I can't consume the yellow mee...cause gastric). But don't care, must try it already!!!

jason said...

Tummythoz: Don't think there's another way to describe that. Nope, still at Ipoh. Will be there on 7th
