Mie Goreng Tek-tek (Indonesian fried-noodle, street food style)

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

Serving: 3-4


200 g               egg noodle

100 g               meat balls, cut into 2 or 4 parts

100 g               Chai sim/Pak Choi, chopped

2                      eggs

¼ cup              sweet soy sauce

½ tsp               salt
