Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee @ KL

Kin Kin, home to the original Chilli Pan Mee, is notorious for the rude owner and rather expensive food. However customers including myself and JS keep returning because their signature Chilli Pan Mee is just too awesome!
Secret recipe
On each table sits a big, clear plastic tub filled with Kin Kin's secret blend of chilli flakes. I usually take just 1.5 teaspoons - any more and my nose will run...
Dry Version (RM 5.80)
No point asking the owner(s) for small, medium, big. There is only one noodle portion served at Kin Kin and that is what you'll get. It is slightly insufficient for me but this portion is good for small eaters whereas guys usually take 1.5 bowls.
The dry version of the noodles comes with minced meat, fried anchovies, fried shallots and topped with a perfectly poached egg. The noodles are unlike the usual hawker stall noodles and have a good bite to it. The way I like to eat it is to sprinkle over the chilli flakes, "break" the poached egg so the runny yolk spills over the noodles and mix everything up. It tastes fantastic with the chilli flakes providing that extra kick and flavour to the minced meat and plain noodles.
Each order of dry noodles comes with a small bowl of sweet potato leaf soup with stirred-in egg whites. It is a little bland compared to the soupy noodles version but still acceptable.
Soup Version (RM 5.80)
The soup version is slightly more worth the price as it comes with additional leafy green vege and sliced pork in addition to the usual minced meat, fried anchovies and poached egg. The picture above doesn't look like there's much but rest assured, all the goodies are hidden at the bottom of the bowl =) The soup is sweet and flavourful from the sliced pork and is as good as the dry version. Imagine slurping noodles from a hot and spicy (from the chilli flakes) bowl of soup!
Apart from Chilli Pan Mee, they also have soup with a choice of pork balls and fish balls. Both the pork balls and fish balls taste bouncy and fresh.
There is another Chilli Pan Mee shop opposite Kin Kin but we always return to Kin Kin despite the higher price and smaller portion as there's just something extra in that secret chilli flake recipe of theirs.
