Kin Kin (Restaurant) Chili Pan Mee @ Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Recently back on Melbourne soil from KL ... O' Melbourne, why are you so cold to me?
Malaysia, the land so beautiful yet so dangerous, with food worth risking your life and dying for...
So, I was ecstatic that I was taken to Kin Kin to try their famous Chili Pan Mee!!
First of all, it's located KL, so Madam Mummy would never take me there...
Secondly, Madam Mummy hates Pan Mee... so I have to rely on my wonderful friends to take me to certain places to search for delectable delights!
After hearing so much about this famed Chili Pan Mee... I was really and truly happy to have the chance to eat here...
My Bronze friend commented, "Wah, you how many days never eat?!"... (Manglish for... "Woah, what on earth? Have you been starving?")
This was also because he ordered 2 bowls of noodles (being greedy) and couldn't finish it up, so Ms Tinymouse and I helped out (as we have Big Melbourne Tummies)...
The noodles' were quite akin to La Mien (freshly made noodles) rather than the normal Pan Mee noodles...
And the chili flakes added a whole new dimension to this dish...
Being a fan of normal pan mee... and the delicious sambal (chili paste) that comes with it, I can't quite seem to compare which style I like more as they are quite different...
Apart from the deep fried anchovies (Ikan Bilis), mince pork, and the vegetable in the soup, it's a totally different dish altogether...
I must admit, I quite like it... so much so, that it was the highlight of my trip... (I didn't do much eating this trip :( )
