Nyonya Colors' Mee Siam with Honey Chicken
Nyonya Colors’ Mee Siam with Honey Chicken

Mee Siam with Honey Chicken is marvelous as it is unusual to pair off mee siam with a sweet dish like honey chicken. However, with honey chicken sweetness, saltiness and spiciness of the mee siam, Mee Siam with Honey Chicken is really satiating.
