Dried Pan Mee with awesome Chilli!

See photo here http://www.pepperminter.com/2015/04/kin-kin-chilli-pan-mee.html

Good to try if you are nearby and there's not much queue even during lunch hours. Service is fast and the noodle is good. Been there twice and will be heading back there often!

Having tried the Dried Ban Mian in Restoran Kin Kin in Kuala Lumpur (KL) two years ago, and still remembering how nice it was, I was glad when Kin Kin came to Singapore. However, it took me a while to finally decide to drop by to try it, because when it first opened, the queue could take 2 hours (including waiting time) so I wasn't about to do that for any food at all. Today, I finally managed to pop by!

The Singapore's version ... oh well, there is a more extensive menu, for one. It came in a big bowl with a side bowl of vegetable soup on the side - something which I appreciated, and deemed as rather thoughtful. Of course, the price of one bowl of Ban Mian here cost SGD$5.00 here.

The noodles were served with a little chilli, ikan bilis (anchovies), meat balls, a poached egg and shallot in lieu of spring onion.

I began to toss the noodles with the other ingredients (always get a thrill of poking the egg yolk and watching it flowing luxuriously over my food). Upon taking the first bite, I found it to be rather bland in flavor - there was not much hint of spiciness, nothing like the one I had in KL. I tried a second bite, and came up with the same verdict. Maybe they are trying to tailor the taste to suit locals' tastebud (cannot be too spicy).

Then I spotted the "Pan Mee Chilli" on the tabletop and that made all the difference. I slowly added chilli powder in dollop after dollop - after about 5 full dollops (I love spicy food by the way), the taste was finally adjusted to a close resemblance of the one I had in KL. Now my noodles was spicy and crispy with the anchovies, and I enjoyed it tremendously. The addition of meatballs was another nice touch. Lastly, the restaurant is air-conditioned so it was comfortable eating here, even during lunch hours.

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.
