Dried Pan Mee with awesome Chilli!

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!

I've been to Kin Kin more than 5 times, the first time was a revelation -explosion of flavors. The standard has been slipping, my most recent visit was horrifyingly bad. 

The overall dish was bland and mushy.

The noodles were gluey, rubbery and pretty inedible. They stuck together in clumps of starch, swimming in a pool of what was meant to be gravy, but tasted like dishwater. The Ee mian was not any better, completely overlooked.

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.
