Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee, off Jalan TAR

by Bangsar Babe

Chilli pan mee...without the chilli, yet!

Would you tolerate bad service if the food is good? I remember my first time at Kin Kin Pan Mee and it wasn’t a pleasant one. That was almost five years ago and I refused to eat there again until a few weeks ago. Mum in-law wanted to eat there, so I relented.

Never rush the auntie...unless you want some scolding.

This time around, my experience was better. An old uncle attended to me and he did so pleasantly. The wait was long but since our table was under a fan, I didn’t mind much. You can choose to have your pan mee with soup or dry; I prefer the latter. A dry pan mee (RM5.80) comes with minced pork, crispy ikan bilis and topped with a poached egg. You get a bowl of soup with sayur manis as well.

Soup with sayur manis

Bring on the chilli flakes!

It isn’t called chilli pan mee for nothing. You need to eat the noodles with the famous dry fried chilli flakes, but go easy on the amount. Two spoons is just about the amount I can handle, without feeling as though I’m about to die inside. The yolk oozed out at the poke of my chopstick; runny, smooth and coated the noodles nicely.

All mixed up and ready to eat

We found the chilli flakes at Kin Kin tastier and more aromatic compared to its competitor across the road and the noodles had a firm yet springy texture. We also had the pork ball soup (RM6), which was nothing to shout about but good enough to eat with the pan mee.

Pork ball soup

My visit to Kin Kin was fairly pleasant; no scolding from anyone and the noodles were tasty. I wouldn’t mind coming back every now and then if that’s how they treat customers these days.

Herbal tea to combat the heat

Ambiance: 5/10
Price: 5/10
Food: 7/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: Nice, springy noodles and the chilli flakes that pack a punch.

Bangsar Babe February 9, 2012 - 1:27 pm

Still the best pan mee in my opinion. But maybe you have better advice? Need to go back soon, miss the chili. Cheers

Bangsar Babe February 9, 2012 - 1:54 pm

For chilli pan mee, I think this is the best too. But if you want the regular soup one, there’s a place in Klang that serves a good bowl. Porky broth. :)

being not a fan of chili, but a major fan of egg, i think i’d love this just as much (maybe even more) without any of the fiery stuff! i’ll just call my version “egg pan mee” :D

Bangsar Babe February 9, 2012 - 4:41 pm

Make that a double egg pan mee!

YY February 9, 2012 - 7:57 pm

My mom had the worst msg attack at this place. i got the worst scolding for recommending her this place too.


Bangsar Babe February 9, 2012 - 11:58 pm

Oh dear! :( :(

I didn’t feel thirsty…but that’s probably because I didn’t drink much soup.

Baby Sumo February 9, 2012 - 10:01 pm

I usually just go to Jojo since it’s clean and the service is fast. Pan mee not too bad also.

Bangsar Babe February 9, 2012 - 11:59 pm

Tried Jojo before, but still prefer this. :)

iamthewitch February 10, 2012 - 5:29 pm

If you’re talking about chilli pan mee, I think this is the best! Have tried SO many chilli pan mee shops around.. lol.. their chilli flakes make all the difference! And the service was quite pleasant when I went there too :)

Bangsar Babe February 10, 2012 - 7:02 pm

Waaaa….how many pan mee places have you tried?! Good to know that service has improved. :)

Your bowl of noodle lack of something which I normally ask for.
