Mee Udang Banjir

We stopped randomly at Mee Udang Banjir near Kuala Selangor. It is a kind of Malay shrimp gumbo with shells and feet of the prawns included with yellow noodles.
The prawns aren't exactly galah as advertised, which is giant freshwater prawns but the dish is photogenic and tasty nevertheless . RM 10.50 for the dish with regular size prawns.

Nasi Goreng U.S.A.

Nasi Goreng U.S.A. or American Fried Rice

I always thought the fried rice has some kind of American influence. Indeed it has a fascinating history and is crossover food.

The common explanation and assumption is that the U.S.A. abbreviation stands for Udang (Shrimps), Sotong (Squid) and Ayam (Chicken). There's also an omelette on top or wrapped around the fried rice.

Its real origin or influence ought to be the American Fried Rice (ข้าวผัดอเมริกัน) dish, invented by the Thais during the Vietnam War.
