Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee

It has been quite a while since I did a blog post on food. A lot of people who know me personally knew that I love taking food photos. But most of them never got published online and at the end of the day, I forgot why I took those photos for. Maybe it is to remind how good or bad the dish taste or to remind those gatherings I went.

Sometimes I do regret taking too much photos. Currently I have around 6000 over photos to categorize and place them in order.

Well, today’s post is about one of my favorite food – Chili Pan Mee…

Before last week, the only one that I have tried was the Food Court I went while I was holidaying in Penang. It has the spiciest chili, so satisfying with the taste and the texture of the noodle. The only downside was portion was small and rather expensive.. I think it was selling for RM8. (I had good exchange rate so I can’t make noise.)

So, to reminisce the taste of this dish, me and my sister with her bf was around Kallang Area which was rather near to Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee. I remembered when it first started, the queue was rather long and because I don’t stay in the East Side, I didn’t get to try then. Although I heard reviews wasn’t fantastic but still I felt, worth to give it a try.
This house specialty is around $5.50 per bowl. Includes Anchovies, Minced Pork, Meatball, fried shallots and 1 egg. 

There was no crowd over at the outlet and restaurant is air conditioned.

Ok, the egg yolk was supposed to be slimy not cooked. It was a small disappointment here. Chili was not spicy and probably because it was left outside for quite sometime as we didn’t get the fresh ones. As all of us is rather hungry, we add on their handmade fishball with spinach soup.

Surprisingly, their handmade fishball was springy which I have seldom taste in now in our hawker centres.

They do not offer a variety of side dishes which was such a pity.. I like to have main dish plus side dishes…especially when I could eat up a cow. But I guess this was enough.

Verdict: I do not think I will return as I find the food average. Chili was the main focus but it was not spicy as it claimed! There was no returning crowd shows that this dish was not able to stand out in Singapore. But I do hope they could improve even though I would rather have this dish in Malaysia.

P.S. There is another rival shop just next to Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee which maybe is worth to try the next time round.
