In certain areas, a similar variety of Mee rebus is called Mie Jawa, Mee Jawa, Mi Jawa, Bakmi Jawa or Bakmi Godhog,[3] although this is a popular misnomer, since Mie Jawa is slightly different from Mie Rebus. Despite sharing similar spices, Mie Jawa contains chicken instead of shrimp.[3] A dish similar to Mie Rebus in Indonesia is called mie celor, and it is popular in Palembang. Batam islands has a version called Mie Lendir.
