Yellow Noodle Soup

25.11.2014 -  Batam.  This bowl of yellow noodle doesnt seem so attractive, but i simply love the simplicity of this dish.  Its just yellow noodle soup that so good to eat on a rainy day.

Everytime i prepare this dish, I simply add any meat i have like fish fillet, prawns, squid, fish cake or fish ball, sausage, chicken or beef fillets.  For vegetables, any kind of vegetables will do but i find Sayur Manis / Daun Katuk / Mani cai or Cengkok Manis...( so many names... :) is the best vegetable suits this kind of noodle soup, i believe because of the sweetness from the leafs that make the soup tastier and more if added some anchovies to the soup will be a bonus. Yummy.
