Chili Pan Mee @ Restoran Kin Kin


Nestled in a row of shop lot off Jalan TAR, Restoran Kin Kin itself is an eating establishment that takes pride in their killer chili pan mee. So much pride that I’ve heard so many horror stories of the grumpy owner and intolerable services.
To avoid getting shouted at, we went there on a quiet Sunday morning. I suppose the lady owner was in a jovial mood that day. She smiled while taking our orders. Service was a bit slow but it is bearable.

Our pan mee (RM5.50) arrived shortly after. The accompanying ingredients are pretty standard: fried anchovies (ikan bilis), minced pork, crispy fried shallot and egg poached to perfection. It is also served with a small bowl of soup and sayur manis to curb the spiciness.

What is chili pan mee without the piece de resistance – dry chili flakes! Add one or two table spoon of those fiery, aromatic chili flakes into your bowl, poke the runny egg yoke and give everything a good stir!
The outcome? A good bowl of chili pan mee that leaves you yearning for more because…at RM5.50, the portion is really small.

Restoran Kin Kin is located on the backstreet off Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman. Take a left turn at Pizza Hut followed by a right. The bright yellow signboard is hard to be missed. Oh or you can go to the opposite Restoran Super Kitchen, with bright yellow signboard too. The chili pan mee tastes the same and they price it at RM5.50 too.

    they do have slightly better chili pan mee than super kitchen, but the sometimes overly lansi attitude, and the inability to serve soup & noodle at the same time really potong stim la

    Ah, Kin Kin. I have so many funny memories of this place – the owners can really be so moody… Sometimes ok, sometimes sooooo grumpy! :)

    Luckily the noodles+chilli are consistently yummy….


  3. yum says:

    Yup, been to Kin Kin (what an oxymoron of a name — should be called Bun Bun).

    Been also to Super Kitchen.

    No discernible difference in taste esp after putting in the chilli flakes.

    My verdict is that Kin Kin is too much of a bother to eat at. When people get famous, they are a pain in the ass.

  9. JD says:

    That signage is very good, at least I know that the one that I ate is the genuine branch in Pandan. Haha. Read about the bad customer experience here so never really bother going there as the one in Pandan is very near to my house. It’s pretty good too…

    Still find that Kin Kin’s version of chilli pan mee is the best, although the service is slow and unpredictable mood of the shop owner… they have a branch in Pandan Indah with air-cond and run by youngsters… the pan mee there pretty good too
