Thank you for this, as I wanted to recreate the noodles I had in Malaysia. I have used Indo Mie brand noodles (very good) and some Chinese dried thin wheat noodles (also good but not as). I couldn't find real belacan, so I used a Thai shrimp paste, which adds a good flavor. I found it a little ketchupy the way it's written, so I use less ketchup. Fried tofu is great in place of the chicken. Many types of veggies work well. I like broccoli and green onion. I wimped out and bought fried onions. You gotta have fried onions. For garnish, try lime juice, bean sprouts, and peanuts, along with the onions. A quartered hard boiled egg is nice too, though a fried egg is more authentic. Supoib!
