Mee Rebus Gravy Hawker Style

There are so many style or ways of preparing  Mee Rebus and there is no one correct way. This recipe I am sharing here is something that I can recall during our hawker days, we omit the use of beef stock as to cater to the majority of our customers that didn’t eat beef. This style of Mee Rebus also reminds me of my primary school days. Me and my classmates will often share a plate of Mee Rebus at the school canteen, as we didn’t have much money then we would always ask for second helpings of the gravy from the Mak Cik. It was so SHIOK slurping the gravy, yup just the gravy! The Mak Cik  was very kind to give us FOC and also because her son was our classmate too. lol.
