Mee Siam, which means "Siamese noodle", is a dish of thin rice noodles (vermicelli) in spicy, sweet and sour light gravy. It is one of the popular one-dish meals in Singapore and Malaysia. There is also a "dry" version, which is essentially stir frying the rice noodles with the same spices used in the "gravy" version.
Although it would seem to be originally a Thai dish, Thailand has no such dish, although it might be possible that Mee Siam may be related to Mee Rad-Na or Pad-Thai. It is a pure Nyonya speciality that is now prepared by Indians, Malays as well as Chinese stalls in Singapore and Malaysia with slight variation in ingredients. It is served with salted soy beans, dried bean curd, boiled egg, and tamarind, garnished with spring onions and Chinese chives.
