Lately I have been missing Indonesian street-food, after all it is where I am from, and unfortunately Stuttgart has nothing to offer. So I gotta make one to fulfil my homesickness. One of my favorite street-food is Mie Goreng Tek-tek. The name comes from the seller that hits the wok on the food cart and making sound “tek-tek”. They also sell nasi goreng (fried rice) and normally use the same sauce ingredients. So, if you feel like eating fried rice (street food style), go ahead and replace the noodle with rice. Enjoy…. 🙂
Total Time: 45 minutes
200 g egg noodle
100 g meat balls, cut into 2 or 4 parts
100 g Chai sim/Pak Choi, chopped
¼ cup sweet soy sauce
½ tsp salt

2 big chilies (optional)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
- Boil egg noodle for about 5 minutes (check on package instruction), drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
