One thing I cannot get enough of in KL is Pan Mee. I've had some good ones and I've had some nasty ones but I wanted ULTIMATE pan mee so where do I turn to but my trusted trove of local food blogs? It was thanks to Masak-masak's post and directions that I managed to find Kung Fu Pan Mee, tucked away in the quiet, previously uncharted waters of Taman Sri Sentosa off Old Klang Road, near the NPE highway turnoff from OUG's direction.
I ordered large, dry, "torn" version (RM6) which arrived, generously topped with minced meat and crispy giant anchovies. What's great about this place is that you're free to help yourselves to the containers with generous lime wedges and the kick-ass chilli sauce.
Chilli sauce + Pan Mee = Happiness X infinity! Squeeze a few drops from your lime first into the sauce, then squeeze the rest into your pan mee. Mix....
...and behold, the golden, lardy goodness of a well-executed Pan Mee. The freshly hand-made noodles are thicker than usual and offer a LOT of bite so you actually find yourself working hard to get each mouthful down, not that I'm complaining.
Fat Tulip opted for the soup version for the same price, and he proclaimed it the best pan mee he's ever had. Word.
The menu, in the form of a 3R photo album, is limited to variations of pan mee but it also has some side dishes. We ordered the pandan chicken. Again, we had no qualms about proclaiming this one of the best pandan chicken we've had. I've always thought the whole pandan chicken proposition somewhat blah but this one is in a different league altogether - the marinade and spices have been totally massaged into the chicken meat and each mouthful offers a wonderful, seamless burst of flavours. At RM4.50 each (yes, that's RM9.00 for 2 measly pieces of chicken), it's an arm and a half but a must-try at least once.
The unassuming, blink-and-you'll-miss shopfront, located next to an old-school hairdressing salon drying a pile of freshly-laundred Good Morning towels outside.
I found myself wishing for the pan mee the next meal, and the one after that. Won't be long before I head back there for a fix!
