One of the reasons I choose to cook Bandung noodles is because my hubby request. He is 'craving' for Bandung noodles :D He had spent about 6 years in Johor for his U studies. And Bandung noodles is one of his favourite meals while dining out. However my Bandung noodles is not the same as the one he usually eat. I guess there is different version of Bandung selling in Johor. And mine is not the one :P Nevertheless it still tastes good.

According to Malaysian Kitchen, Mee Bandung is a dish originating from Johor, specifically from Muar. The term 'Bandung' is not derived from Bandung, Indonesia but as a term for anything that is mixed from many ingredients.

Recipe reference from Malaysia Kitchen
