My friend once told me, in Jakarta, there is this small restaurant serving a dish called, 'nasi gila' which literally means, crazy rice.
The term was because of a plethora of meat and vegetables piled on top of the rice.
Of course, the nasi gila was awesome, according to him, and also cheap.
So when I brought this friend to Chong & Low, he said, oh! this is 'mee gila'!
Not in a bad way, that is.
The noodles, as shown in the photo, is a bit tricky to order.
It goes like this: Tah mee pang bak chor, char sio, hu + hoo ee t'ng (Dry noodles with pork minced, 'char siew' pork and fish + fishball soup)

This is, the ramen of Borneo.
It is so good, that when I studied in Johore years ago, I had my relatives flown in packets of this noodles to Johore from Kuching for me.
It is not very difficult to look for this place, just a stone throw from Everrise BDC.
