Cwie Mie Malang

Serves 3

New entrepreneurs always try to find new eye catching food product to roll into the market. They are aware that the Indonesian people loves mie ayam, so a lot of mie ayam varients where introduced to the market. One of that varient is Cwie Mie Malang, this noodle in concept is like Mie Ayam, the difference is that they don’t use sweet soy sauce in the ingredients and change the boiled pokcoy with fresh salad leaves. The taste is more in the salty sphere.  When this first came to Jakarta, it was so hot that there where too many Cwie Mie entrepreneurs flourishing like a fungus in the rainy seasons. But I just knew that it wouldn’t be for long because I knew that the Indonesian taste buds likes sweetness a lot and my prediction was right. Now  only a few survived and usually they will match it with another popular dish from Malang.
