Kin Kin Pan Mee @ Pandan Indah, KL

Too much attention was diverted to Johor inthe previous posts, let's get back on track with some KL food. Hmm, where to start?

Aiks, the name so familiar one?
Aunt was raving about some new pan mee outlet near her place, newly opened and crowded during lunch hours. Ok, not exactly a pan mee fan, but whatever lah.
When we reached there, I was pleasantly surprised, as the shop she meant was Kin Kin Pan Mee, the much-reviewed, much-hyped, and highly-rated shop selling pan mee. Their main branch is at Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, packed most of the times. So, was I glad for 1) I get to try this for the 1st time, hehe, without much hassle,travelling and preparation involved, and 2) Somebody's paying for my bowl of pan mee (muahaha ...) Ahem, anyway ...

Their ultra-famous dry pan mee, crowned with an egg (RM5)

Both aunt and grandma ordered the soup version, with mee hoon kuih (the chunky blocks of flour noodle) instead of the usual pan mee. Claimed they were so-so, and Jalan Alor's version the true champion (or whatever). I of course ordered their famous kon-lou (dry version), which came with an egg (yolk intact, mind you ... skilful?) anchovies, spring onions, and fried shallots. The serving was not big, sufficient for breakfast, not for lunch. ;)

Oooh... Deadly .... *_*

Consuming the bowl of noodles on its own is bland, and akin to sex-with-clothes, or something like that =P Therefore, it is highly recommended (by other floggers alike) to pepper your bowl with the dried chili flakes, liberately, to enhance the almighty "Kin Kin Experience" ....

(P/S : Take note that these babies are fiery, and those with weak bowels should stay vigilant. Don't pour the whole bottle without trying them out 1st.)

Fan Shu Yip (Sweet Potato Leaves?)

If you think your bowl of noodles is too dry, or too spicy/salty due to over-dose of the aforementioned chilli flakes, you can douse the flame with some sweet broth soup, served together with the noodle. The vegetables provide fibres, helps in assisting bowel movement. LOL

A rare sight in Kin Kin Pan Mee, right?

The decor was simple, minimalist, with furnitures resembling those from period dramas (ancient period mind you, not the monthly kind =P) and the place is air-conditioned. Parking's a breeze, but not sure if the same can be said during peak hours.

Location : 6-G, Jalan Perubatan 4, Off Jalan Pandan Ilmu. Specifically, it is directly opposite of Pandan Indah police station. The same area houses Hospital Pandan Indah, a Secret Recipe cafe, a famous Hakka Noodle shop, and another famous Pan Mee shop.

The furnitures here are more contemporary, compared to the round table and usual plastic chairs at the outlet in Jalan TAR.

Maybe there's not many people knew about this place yet, like me.

yeah, RM5 slightly pricey, but the place's air-conditioned, and its KL, and its KIN KIN. haha ... inflation is an inevitable evil ...

I don't like the way that the third and fourth dish looks like but dry pan mee looks great I would love to give it a try.

I've been reading all your entries and I think you've been doing a good job, specially in this occasion. It's all about weird food, you know, everything is very strange and unusual.
