After the first visit and another subsequent revisit, I found myself here again at Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee. I also heard that they have a new menu, consisting of more items. Indeed, this time round, they have sea asparagus pan mee, clam pan mee, meatball soup and seafood soup etc. Service here is rather unbearable, so just remind yourself that you are here for the food; and even though they state closing time to be 8.00pm (last order 7.45pm), it may happen that you can step in at 7.35pm and are s

I had wanted to try the Clams Pan Mee but it was sold out. So I settled for the Signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee (SGD$5.00) to satiate earlier cravings. The springy noodles were satin smooth. After tossing the poached egg, shallots, meat balls and minced meat, simply add in dollops of their homemade chilli paste, and we were all set to go. The noodle was delicious as I'd recalled (by Singapore's standard).

The Beau tried the Signature Pan Mee (SGD$5.00) in soup version, so that we could compare the difference. The broth was delicious, laden with the tiniest hint of sweetness. The noodles were silky strands of bounciness, and he had the same ingredients as me save for the egg. What a pity - we both felt that if there was an egg beaten in, it would have made the noodle more palatable and complete.

The Singapore's version ... oh well, there is a more extensive menu, for one. It came in a big bowl with a side bowl of vegetable soup on the side - something which I appreciated, and deemed as rather thoughtful. Of course, the price of one bowl of Ban Mian here cost SGD$5.00 here.

The noodles were served with a little chilli, ikan bilis (anchovies), meat balls, a poached egg and shallot in lieu of spring onion.

I began to toss the noodles with the other ingredients (always get a thrill of poking the egg yolk and watching it flowing luxuriously over my food). Upon taking the first bite, I found it to be rather bland in flavor - there was not much hint of spiciness, nothing like the one I had in KL. I tried a second bite, and came up with the same verdict. Maybe they are trying to tailor the taste to suit locals' tastebud (cannot be too spicy).

Then I spotted the "Pan Mee Chilli" on the tabletop and that made all the difference. I slowly added chilli powder in dollop after dollop - after about 5 full dollops (I love spicy food by the way), the taste was finally adjusted to a close resemblance of the one I had in KL. Now my noodles was spicy and crispy with the anchovies, and I enjoyed it tremendously.
The addition of meatballs was another nice touch. Lastly, the restaurant is air-conditioned so it was comfortable eating here, even during lunch hours.

So my colleague was raving about this place that we should check out in the area, so I gave in and he took me there. I don't like spicy food, so I had mine without chilli for $5, this looks like an overpriced bowl of dry ban mian. But let me reassure you that it is not. It is also not for the health concious, as the bottom of the bowl is pretty much the zhap (gravy) that is 90% oil.

Also, the chilli is also self-serve, my colleage was still raving about their chilli, even after we got to the place. A bit too oily for my liking. The shop itself is air-conditioned so it's not too bad to be drinking a bowl of soup. 

Parking can be quite difficult during lunch time, as it's mostly parallel parking along the shop houses, be weary and put your coupon.

With the hype on this place, we went down to have a bite of the famous mee. Honestly, it did not wow me much. The noodles were ok and the ingredients passable. We ordered the fish ball soup and they have nice touches of spinach in the soup which we like. The soup is also very tasty too. I do feel thirsty drinking the soup and guess it might be the generous amount of MSG inside. Overall, I will not come back specially for the noodle. If I am nearby, it's a maybe.

To be honest, I felt that the pan mee was very ordinary. It tastes good when everything is mixed together, but I definitely would not queue hours for it. I don't even think I would queue anything more than 15 minutes for it. The dry pan mee was served with crunchy ikan bilis, minced meat and fried shallots, together with a soft boiled egg and meat balls. The chili is provided on every table so feel free to add them on your own. The chili is fragrant but not spicy. As I'm a fan of spicy food, I wished the chili had more kick. The noodles were just normal. I liked the soup though. It looks very plain but is actually quite tasty. The fishball that came with it was quite different too. It tasted more like sotong ball.

We ordered dry and soup variants of the chilli pan mee - or rather I was the only strange one that ordered the soup because I felt like it. Most people would order the dry one because that's the signature and most original style of the pan mee, but do whatever you want, don't let stereotypes stop you from choosing the soup! Because I'm an advocate for the soup version. I liked it better because the soup is more flavourful together with the noodles than if served separately. Please don't miss out on the awesome soup that was seasoned and made fragrant with sweet shallots and fresh fried ikan bilis.
Why I like this better than normal pan mee (or more affectionately known as ban mian)
For one, I'm not crazy over ban mian like most of my friends who used to make a beeline for the stall every time we visit a hawker centre. The usual suspects are the fat, flat noodles. They tend to clump together and have this doughy, uncooked taste that I don't like, but everyone seemed to swear by it. Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee's noodles are as you can see from the picture, rounder, thinner and - to borrow a term from the Italian folks - al dente. I guess I just liked the Malaysian KL version of pan mee better. Oops.

After the craze is over, i went Kin Kin on a weekday at about 5.30pm then the restaurant is almost vacant. No queue is required so i got that going for me.
A bowl of dry noodle cost S$5 and comes with a generous serving of braised minced meat and fried anchovies, meat balls and a soft-boil egg (it cost S$2.80 in KL. Come on!)
The handmade noodle is not the soft and soggy kind. It’s a little firmer which makes it enjoyable to chew on. Kin Kin also added Pork Lard as part of the recipe, which works out pretty well.
As for their signature chilli, it’s surprising salty, as I was expecting it to be sweeter. If you taste it carefully, it taste like grinded chilli (with seed) pan fried in salt and some kind of chicken seasoning powder. This chilli therefore enhances the noodle like how a seasoning pack enhances the shaker fries.
The overall taste isn’t exactly mind blowing but is more of like “kind of nice”. Every mouthful comes in a blend of egg yolk, crispy anchovies, sweet minced pork, pork lardy chewy noodles and strong spicy kick from the chilli.

Most diners are sharing tables, so that Kin Kin can accommodate more diners at a time. It seems rather busy, in addition that it's a weekend dinner. But service is rather prompt and so is the food served.
Heard that the menu used to have more items than now, perhaps to make their service more effective and easier for chefs to prepare and narrow down the waiting time.

I was strongly recommended to try their Homemade Fishball Soup ($4.00). Quantity of 5 big and soft fishballs, which seems to be indeed homemade, but lacking of firmness and springy texture.

Signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee ($5.00) - Dry. Comes with a bunch of anchovies, 3 meatballs and a soft-boiled egg.

If you find it too plain, you may opt for Sea Asparagus Pan Mee ($8.00) - Dry. Everything is the same, but with addition of sea asparagus for another $3.00.

This is how it should roughly look like after mixing up. I love the thickness and the "gluey" feeling of the noodles, but not having the springy feeling is still a flaw to me.

Overall, it is ok to dine here once, but definitely not worth to queue and wait long hours for it. I would rather head to the nearest coffeshop and order a bowl of fishball noodle. To me, lack of springy texture in the fishball and the noodle are big mistakes.

The Signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee ($5) looks like an ordinary dry ban mian when it was served out, but after mixing the chilli paste that is provided on the table, it’s not hard to see why this is one of the favourites here. The chilli, while not being overly spicy, brought out the flavour in the ban mian after mixing the minced meat, ikan bilis, poached egg, fried onions and meatballs. It tasted like a dry ramen you can get in a Japanese restaurant, except that this is more flavourful, more filling, less dry and definitely more spicier (but less spicier than other types of noodles).

As the hype for this place becomes more manageable, it is now easier to have a meal here (be it for lunch or for dinner, dine-in or takeaway). Given that this place is around the MacPherson / Tai Seng area, this place will be filled with the lunch crowd!

We'd previously thought that it was just gonna be another one of those usual noodle places we see, just in an air-conditioned place.
So with the crazy crowds during its first two weeks, we'd decided to drop by when one of our colleagues told us there was no queue at all! Yes indeed, when we went at about 1.30pm, there was plenty of space to accommodate us when we'd asked for 8pax seating.
There was a whole row of menu in front, with mee hoon kueh, you mian, etc, but we were told that only their signature was available. So the only choice we had to make was...dry or soup?

The way to eating this: pop the half boiled egg and mix with their signature chilli so that the noodles are evenly coated. I loved how the chilli wasn't overwhelming and had the aroma of the roasted chilli, with not too much chilli oil. It was one that grew on slowly rather than a searing spice that burns.
The minced meat had also been braised to add the savoury flavour to an otherwise plain dish. Great if you can take spicy food, else it'd have been just a plain noodle dish.
It took about 15mins wait for the noodles to be served and while mine had a perfectly poached eggs, it was inconsistent for the other bowls that came after.

The soup version was pretty much the same, more savoury though it probably wasn't the best kind to mix in with their chilli that was the essence of dining here.

It hit the parts on the taste and was an above-average bowl of noodles, but to queue or specially travel here for that? I'd highly doubt so. Plus, the portion was too small and all of us ended up going for second round lunch at the prata stall next to it. $5 has certainly been a hefty price tag and inflation from its original RM4.60 in KL.
Overhyped and overpriced, go without the expectations of a golden bowl of noodles and it'd make for a more pleasant experience.

New in town waiting time and queue is crazy~ I order 4 signature noodles at $5 each and 2 fishball and tofu skin soup at $4 each for takeaway add 40¢~ To mi the noodle not bad but not worth the 1hr + I waited for. When I left around almost 6:30pm the queue was still there but noodle already out of stock. Place is small and clean. Will try again when  the queuing craze is over~
