Mee bandung Muar, or simply Mee bandung, is a traditional Southeast Asian cuisine originated from Muar, Johor, Malaysia.[1][2] The word bandung in its name derives from the literal meaning of the word in the Malay language, which is "mixed" or "pairs", as in several Malay words like Sirap bandung (rose syrup beverage mixed with condensed milk) and Rumah berbandung (semi-detached house). It is a misconception to think that the name indicates that Mee bandung originated in Bandung, a city in Indonesia; the two are unrelated.[3]

Mee bandung is a cuisine that originally consisted only of noodles and eggs in addition to a soup made of a mixture of chilli, onion, spices, shrimp paste and dried shrimp. Later it was improved by the addition of shrimp, meat, fish cakes and vegetables.[4] Even though Mee bandung is now available throughout Malaysia, the version served in Muar is still considered the best.[5][6]
