Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee, Publika.


*Since I'm a Malaysian and we follow British syllabus here, "chilli" it is then, instead of "chili". :P 
One of the best food in KL nowadays is chilli pan mee, which literally translates to "chilli flat flour noodles", which is pretty weird.

So, here's the story.
Mom has been obsessing over a certain chilli pan mee shop at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman. One of its newer branches is located in EAT Food Village at Publika, which is one of the best places in town for good food.

The ambience is quite good, as it has air-conditioning and of course, what people look for nowadays, a Wi-Fi signal. We had an early dinner, about a few minutes to 6pm but there are already people queuing for a bowl of chilli pan mee!

You can get soup noodles or dry noodles. (I am used to the dry ones as I find them tastier) You can also get some add-ons too.

And mom started on the story while we waited for our noodles. The owner of Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee is the one who started the whole "chilli pan mee" trend. He refused to open branches so some people imitated him and the style of his chilli pan mee. Chilli pan mee gained popularity and more shops and stalls selling chilli pan mee popped up from time to time. After that, the owner finally opened two branches, including another one at Pandah Indah.

The noodles come with a leafy soup, some fried anchovies, fried onion, a poached egg and some dried chilli flakes. It's pretty much what you get at any normal chilli pan mee store but the fried onion brought the taste up to another level. For me, I love the fragrance that was introduced by the fried onion. The poached egg was good too.

On the downside, I feel that the fried anchovies are a little salty for my taste.

To eat, just break open the poached egg and mix it together with the noodles and stuff. Add in the dried chilli flakes for a zesty flavour. Some people don't really like spicy food or can't take too much chilli so it is advisable that you add in the chilli bit by bit according to your taste buds. I mean, you can't enjoy your noodles if you can't eat it!
The noodles may be a little dry. Here's where the soup comes in handy. Add in a spoon or two of soup into the noodles (or as many spoons that you like).

The price of one bowl of chilli pan mee is roughly around RM7.90 at Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee in Publika but apparently, the prices at the original shop and the one at Pandan Indah is about RM5. Well, you have to pay for the ambiance, right?

I've tasted a few chilli pan mee before this but their chilli wasn't as good (some are really awful, trust me) and they don't have fried onion x) 
Maybe I'll get mom to bring me to that original shop someday and see if the taste is any different!
