So since today is a Friday (meaning 2 hour lunch) and I was thinking of something spicy, together with Nicholas decided to pick up the nuffie Skyler for some Pan Mee in the city. Ordinarily, we would have gone to the famous Kin Kin Pan Mee, but I decided to give Restaurant Super Kitchen just across the road a chance to prove their worth since Kin Kin is always too packed, and I was never too good at tolerating horrible service anyway. Give the underdogs a chance, shouldn’t we?

We ordered the dried Pan Mee, and instead of having to wait for over half an hour in hot and sweaty condition, the food came within a few minutes. Minced pork, anchovies, poached egg, pretty much the same thing you get from their more famous counterpart. One of the most annoying thing about Kin Kin besides the owner’s attitude, is the fact that the soup always lag behind the noodle by at least 3-5 minutes. Over here, everything is served at the same time, perfect.

the chili is just as good and the pan mee very well made

Of course, the most important part is the taste of the food. After all, many of us might place good food above everything else. I find that the Pan Mee at Super Kitchen, if you can shrug off the psychological effect of this place offering “imitation food”, it is actually pretty good! I believe that a person who has never heard of Kin Kin would probably prefer this place especially if you take everything else (price, service, and ambiance) into consideration.

Another thing to note about this place is the choices of drinks you get to choose. While the opposite restaurant only serves a few choices of canned drinks and over sweetened herbal tea, you get much wider choices, just like an ordinary coffee shop. After discovering this place, I think I’m not going to have to put up with the famous Kin Kin again, the food is pretty much just as good, and the service with a smile won me over.

We have been wanting to try out this place for a while now, but due to the lack of clear direction as to whereabout of this restaurant, we have been putting it off until the sense of adventure creeped up again on one fine afternoon. Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee (建記辣椒板麵) at Jalan Dewan Sultan Sulaiman was worth every bit the trouble it took us to locate the restaurant.

I am usually not a big fan of Pan Mee, having only had this hawker offering not more than half a dozen times in my life. The Pan Mee from Kin Kin, however, is different from usual. The noodle is dry and the soup comes seperatedly, as opposed to the usual noodle soup set up. The noodle too, is the thin type. Other than the familiar anchovies, a boiled egg with half cooked yolk tops up the offering.. *drools*

comes with freshly boiled egg with runny yolk, yum!

The claim of fame for Kin Kin Pan Mee though, is the chili paste. You are free to add as much as you can endure with the noodle. The chili paste has been fried before and has a distinct slight burnt taste to it, which mixes pretty well with the noodle. However, you should not be over confident on your chili tolerant and put too much at once lest end up having your lips look like Macy Gray’s.

look at horng’s burning lips!

Overall the pan mee was very delicious, the egg gives it an overall smooth and pleasant texture, too. You will find yourself trying to lick the bowl. At less than RM5 per bowl, I’d say the price is quite fair too. Give it a try if you are in town!
