It was one of my favourite food for lunch when i still work for my old company. I used to buy it at ITC Kuningan food court. The one and only place that I know which sold yummy mie kangkung 🙂 But when I search for mie kangkung recipe, I found out one place which sold mie kangkung called mie kangkung betawi and soto betawi ariyani, which located at Kemang Pratama – Bekasi. Maybe I should try this place when i come back to Jakarta. For now, I have to pleased with my homemade mie kangkung. lol. The unique taste of mie kangkung made me fall in love with this kind of food. You should put the lime so it has sweet and a little bit sour taste which made it so fresh and healthy. You should eat it when it still hot. Let’s just try it out!
