Akin to mee rebus but with a thicker, stronger shrimp base, each strand of mee bandung Muar’s (RM4.50) thick yellow noodles were coated with the slightly spicy, sweet-ish gravy. The first thing that hit us was just how strong the crustacean flavours were which was further enhanced by a few decent-sized prawns. It can get a little overwhelming, so we’d suggest starting with a small plate. And if you find that it’s totally up your alley, you can bring their paste home and make it in your own kitchen!
