Not worth queueing for

With much anticipation, Kin Kin Pan Mee opened a few months back in Singapore. For those who don't know, Kin Kin Pan Mee originated from KL and is famous for it's dry pan mee. I went on a Saturday when it first opened and there was no queue - the shop was almost empty! But soon after my visit, I heard that people have to queue for hours to have a bowl of their pan mee.
To be honest, I felt that the pan mee was very ordinary. It tastes good when everything is mixed together, but I definitely would not queue hours for it. I don't even think I would queue anything more than 15 minutes for it. The dry pan mee was served with crunchy ikan bilis, minced meat and fried shallots, together with a soft boiled egg and meat balls. The chili is provided on every table so feel free to add them on your own. The chili is fragrant but not spicy. As I'm a fan of spicy food, I wished the chili had more kick. The noodles were just normal. I liked the soup though. It looks very plain but is actually quite tasty. The fishball that came with it was quite different too. It tasted more like sotong ball.

Not Impressive Enough to Warrant a Queue

The vote might have been not recommended but what i truthfully wanted to express was that it is still worth a visit for those who have never tried dry ban mian! 

Overall, the taste was pretty acceptable. However, i would still go with my traditional soupy version.

Love it!! Must try!!!

Super yummy!! Never tried dry bian mian cooked in this way before.. If you like salty food, this is a must try! Only $5 for the basic dry ban mian..

The downside is the location, and that they will force you to share table during peak hours (well, it is not a restaurant in the first place).
