This is what I always love to had ..and I grew to love this noodle soup only when I come to the south. It was kinda unknown to me before that. And to make this noodles soup delicious, the soup is very important. It should be sweet and absorbed the fragrance of the ikan bilis which should not be too hard but 'chewable'. There should be lots of vegetables on it and the soup should not be too complicated.
The singapore version has lot of ingredients in the soup which includes eggs and that could backfired , where it affects the soup. However, I tried some nice stalls in Singapore and the lots of ingredients they add in makes the soup even nicer.
