Springy and chewy handmade noodles, made in an al dente way.
As the weather getting heat-ier by days, my craving towards hot and spicy food never tune down. Spicy food has been working like a stimulant to me; working synergistically with the hot temperature to repel the heat from the body. Of all spicy food, this is one that topped my list.
Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee 建記辣椒板麵
Needless much elaboration, I am sure most of you have tried this chilli pan mee, either in the first shop located at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman or this branch which is in Pandan Indah, managed by the son.
A warm bowl of springy noodles came with poached egg, minced pork, lard bits, anchovies and a bowl of vege-egg soup.
The key??? That’s the tub of spicy-kicking dried chilli flakes on the tables which are stir-fried beforehand, giving the slight burnt flavour. Flavour your bowl of noodles with touches of dried spicy chilli flakes and toss them well. You may add as much as you can into your noodles, given you are able to tolerate the spiciness.
Unlike the one in Madam Chiam, it was delightful to see that they are never stingy on their chilli servings, with a whole tub on the table and you can eat as much as you like. I like both Madam Chiam and Kin Kin’s version. The earlier one comes with smooth, softer noodles and half slice of lime for the tanginess while the later one is prepared in an al dente way and comes with fragrant lard bits. But chilli wise, that would be Kin Kin’s! With the burnt aftertaste and generously served! Yummy!
