VeganMofo 2014: #6 Mee Pok Tah

Mee Pok Tah is a common dish found in the Singapore hawker centers. Mee Pok is a flat egg noodle and Tah means dry (there's also a soup version). You can find egg-free version in Asian supermarkets. They cook really fast so don't idle too long when you're boiling them. 

I used vegan "fish" balls and shredded soy meat. For the sauce, I used:
1 tsp vegan fish sauce
2 tsp black vinegar
2 tbsp ketchup or chili

Place sauce on the bottom of the bowl, then bean sprouts, then noodle, vegan fish balls, and soy meat. Garnish with green onion. The person will then proceed to mix the noodle with the sauce (it's part of the fun). Or at least that's how they served it in the hawker center!

These dishes do seem devoid of vegetables so I usually add bok choy or other Asian greens to the dish to be more nutritionally complete.
