Super-Lazy-Post of Super Kitchen’s Chilly Pan MeeJanuary 17, 2011 | 6,843 views
The combination that works wonders; before the addition of the dry chili flakes/paste – A MUST when it comes to Chilly Pan Mee in KL.
And I am drained. Weekend just flew by before I could even catch my breath. And it doesn’t help that I was suffering from an extreme case of caffeine-withdrawal this morning. Wait, that took almost half my day away, and I was lying in bed with a throbbing headache and utter frustration that my Sunday’s half gone ……. But of course, the second half of the day was good. But let’s leave that story to another day.
If you’re feeling like tormenting yourself, or taking up the challenge to a new level, feel free to gulp down on the dry chili paste. Scoop all you want onto your bowl of pan mee (flat flour noodles), but take heed of this advice; remember to test the waters. You don’t wanna be screaming in agony come the next morning in the loo …..
And I have only tasted Kin Kin’s version of the famed chili pan mee back when they opened a branch in Pandan Indah sometime back in 2008. However, that was a pathetic experience as the noodles tasted bland and the chili paste was too salty instead of rightfully spicy. So when this opportunity to try Super Kitchen‘s version (in Puchong, no less), I had my initial qualms. But was the excursion proven to be worthy or was it a waste of time?
Even the soup version of pan mee came with a beautifully poached egg floated on top; combined with lots of minced pork, crunchy anchovies and green leafy goodness of ‘sayur manis’ (sweet leaves).
In all honesty, this one kicked Kin Kin’s a$$ to oblivion … and then some more.
Of course, there are the Cha Cha’s, Bou Bou’s or whatever brand(s) they came up with; jumping on the bandwagon of Kin Kin’s enormous success.
ADDICTIVELY delicious. Try 2-3 spoonfuls of the dry chili paste before going all out. Just in case your tastebud is not accustomed to the fiery sensation, and the spiciness killed your senses.
Good noodles with a bouncy texture; just toss them up real good and break the egg into pieces. The moisture from the poached egg will coat the strands of flour noodles (I chose the thinner version, but I forgot whether they had the flatter, chunkier ones), then the savoury flavours from the minced pork and crispy anchovies pulled through.
Of course, can’t neglect the pungent, robust kick from the chili paste. Every slurp-ful was a delight, almost a moreish sensation that kept me slurping up the noodles with glee, all the while beads of sweat forming on the forehead.
Chilly Pan Mee #101 – Don’t go over-confident in front of strangers or even friends. You don’t want to be all sweaty, teary and sneezy … this kills first impressions.
Just in case you’re having trouble the very next day, this roughage will assist.
And just so we can linger around longer, we had a small serving of Sui Gao (dumplings in soup) to be shared.
Bigger portions, delicious pan mee with a fantastic chili paste, and pleasant service. Zero attitude (maybe, just maybe ’cause I was with them, and the lady boss recognized Witch!) unlike the Jalan TAR’s Kin Kin (still remember how vkeong was breathing fire through nostrils for all the wrong reasons!).
