A very common dish not only in Indonesia but also in Singapore and Malaysia.  You can find it sold in the street by food vendors and also in high end restaurants.  It was one of my favorites when I used to live in Singapore and I still love it :) Indonesian-style Fried Noodles Ingredients Mie Goreng maybe a traditional dish but it is open for variations.

      Thanks you so much, Laura. Indonesian food is one of our favorite cuisines. I always make it at home since there is hardly an Indonesian restaurant here in Ontario. There is one and only that we always go since the early 90’s. The food is amazing but it’s quite expensive. We only go there on special occasions. I hope that my recipe suits to your taste. Advance happy anniversary to you both. Cheers! :)
