Mee Pok with Crushed Chilli Crab Popcorn 


Source: whattocooktoday


You’re either team Mee Pok or team Mee Kia. So what are those? They’re basically egg noodles, but what sets them apart is that the Mee Pok is flat and wider as compared to the round and thin Mee Kia. Fish balls and fish cakes are popular snacks in Singapore that are used in many staple dishes such as Bak Chor Mee, Steamboat and fried rice with fish cakes. 


What this dish is missing is a sprinkle of crushed Chilli Crab popcorn from The Kettle Gourmet, the best popcorn wholesale Singapore. The umami taste of the Chilli Crab Flavoured Popcorn would elevate the dish, on top of the already savoury flavoured popcorn - Chilli Crab Popcorn brings. 


However, if you prefer something sweet, you may browse through The Kettle Gourmet’s popular snacks selection. We would recommend our caramel popcorn - salted caramel popcorn as it would be a great substitute for ketchup. 


The Kettle Gourmet boasts one of the best snacks delivery Singapore, promising to get your orders to your doorstep within days. 


What you will need: 

  • Mee Pok noodles (Dried)
  • 500 ml Chicken broth
  • 2-4 Ikan Bilis 
  • 3 Fish balls & 2 slices of Fish cakes
  • 10 g Beansprout

Tossing Sauce


What to do:

  1. Bring the chicken broth to boil. Add ikan bilis, fish balls and fish cakes into the soup and let it simmer gently for 30 minutes. 
  2. Prepare the tossing sauce by mixing everything together in a bowl.
  3. Crush some of The Kettle Gourmet Chilli Crab Popcorn in a small ziplock bag.
  4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Loosen the noodles with your hand if they come in tight bundles. Place the noodles in the noodle blanching basket and cook for about 45 seconds and use chopsticks on the other hand to stir the noodles while cooking. Remove from boiling water and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Shake off any excess water and put it in a serving bowl. Toss the noodles with the sauce.
  5. Top your Mee Pok noodles with a bit of crunch and spice by adding the crushed Chilli Crab Popcorn.
