Mee rebus in Singapore
Mee rebus, or boiled noodles, is one of my favorite breakfast foods. Not only is it usually quite affordable, but I also find the rich, thick potato sauce very comforting to sip. Accompanied by fiery sliced green chiles and a squeeze of fresh lime, you get sweet, salty, sour and spicy in one bite. I often add a begedil to the already hearty and tasty meal for more carbs. If you are a mee rebus fan like me, here is a list of 14 mee rebus in Singapore you can try.
1. Frenzlink Cafeteria
Frenzlink Cafeteria is known as one of the most affordable breakfast and lunch restaurants in Clarke Quay. All eight of his noodles are priced at $2.50and the Me Rebus is no exception. The sauce here is rich and thick, and comes with a whole hard-boiled egg, small cubes of tau kwa and bean sprouts. Ask for more green chili for an extra kick, as the mee rebus sauce isn’t too spicy.
