JingZhu Pan Mee in SS19
[Non-halal] Our hunt for the best pan mee in Subang Jaya led us to JingZhu Pan Mee 金珠板面 in SS19.
SS19 in Subang Jaya is particularly known to house a few popular pan mee stalls including Lian Heng (we visited its outlet in USJ1 – check out our post here), SS Pan Mee and JingZhu.
A fellow foodie recommended us to check out JingZhu – and that’s what we did on one Saturday morning.
JingZhu Pan Mee 金珠板面 in SS19 Subang
JingZhu Pan Mee is located on the same row of shophouses in SS19, which also houses SS Pan Mee.
JingZhu actually operates its own restaurant but also rents out a small space for a chicken rice stall.
The dining area can be quite crowded during peak hours, but we were lucky to be able to snag a table immediately when we arrived for lunch at noon.
JingZhu serves traditional pan mee and more
JingZhu is known for its traditional pan mee in soup and dry versions, but the restaurant also serves chilli pan mee, yee mee (dry/soup), and lala herbal pan mee.
Our mission here was clear – order the Traditional Pan Mee Soup and Pan Mee Dry (RM9 for small each).
Mee Hoon Kueh is good
As always, we opt for the Mee Hoon Kueh (hand-pulled noodles) as our noodles of choice for the soup version.
Firstly, the noodle texture was good – deftly pulled for a decent QQ bite.
While we found Lian Heng’s melt-in-the-mouth texture to be interesting – we think this surpasses Lian Heng’s as the dough is seasoned with the right amount of salt to enjoy on its own.
We also enjoyed JingZhu’ soup more as we could taste the natural umami of the anchovy base, with a good hit of sweetness from the sayur manis. We liked that the minced pork did not colour the broth too much as well.
Dry version is good too
We also prefer JingZhu’s dry pan mee vs. Lian Heng.
While we found Lian Heng’s dry pan mee a bit too sweet, the sauce used for JingZhu’s dry pan mee is perfect.
The thick noodles have a good QQ bite, but the stand-out is the soy sauce mix as it was savoury, not too sweet with a nice pork lard undertones.
The fried anchovies were crispy and even the soup served on the side had a good umami from dry anchovies.
As you can tell, we definitely enjoyed the pan mee at JingZhu and prefer it over Lian Heng. Of course, taste is subjective.
If we stayed in the Subang area, this would most likely be a regular haunt for us.
Nevertheless, we will continue to explore more pan mee stalls in the area to decide which is our ultimate favourite in Subang.
Do you have a stall to recommend? Stay tuned for further updates!
