LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

REVIEW : KIN KIN CHILLI PAN MEE

Fred told us about Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee which is a stone's throw from where we stay. He said his friend who is most particular with food is in love with this. The above photo is from mypaper.sg. Kin Kin opened in March 2014 and the queue was horrendous in the beginning. It was said that it took 2-3 hours in that queue to just have a taste of this deconstructed version of the usual soupy ban mee.

Honestly speaking, we felt a bit like a frog in the well as we have not heard of this eatery which is just a 5-minute walk from our home. Anyway, a good excuse to head there during non-peak hours to have a taste.

We didn't feel too good today but we had to have some food. Noodles it was.

We really do not know what the hype is with this chilli pan mee. Is it because it is from KL?

The chilli is much raved about. They import it from KL every week.


The chilli is dry and flakey. It is somewhat crispy.

It was 5ish pm and there was hardly anyone in this eatery. 

The soup came in about 8 minutes or so. The portion is rather small.


Gotta add your own chilli and mix it yourself.


WHERE IS IT?
Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee

Hours: Daily 11:00-20:00

WHAT WE ORDERED
Dry Chilli Pan Mee : S$5

OUR RATING FOR FOOD : 2.5/5
We really do not understand the hype. It is mediocre. There are a lot of other noodles out there that are much much more delicious. Ok, the noodle was al dente. The minced pork was very dry. We love chilli but it does not seem to be the bombs. The portion is very small and it is not exactly worth $5 for the serving and the taste.

OUR RATING FOR SERVICE : 3.5/5.
It is alright. You pay at the counter and they bring the food to you.

OUR RATING FOR AMBIENCE : 1.5/5.
This is a fuss free joint. It is air-conditioned though.
