[Non-halal] More chilli for my pan mee, please! Following our mom’s request, we checked out Restoran Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee yesterday.
We are used to eating at the branch in SS2 Chow Yang, but decided upon the Kota Damansara as it is much closer to home, and appears to be less crowded as well.
Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee in Kota Damansara
At the mention of chilli pan mee, one would immediately think of Kin Kin – the creator of the dish.
Inevitably, every chilli pan mee in town would be held against Kin Kin’s as the gold standard.
So how does the chilli pan mee here fare?
Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee serves a decent kick!
We are happy to report that the signature Dry Chilli Pan Mee (RM10.80) here is decent!
The wheat noodles had a good al-dente texture, the fried anchovies here are crispy but not too thick, and the minced meat is nicely-seasoned.
However, we think Kin Kin has the edge when it comes to egg preparation, as we found the poached egg here to be slightly overcooked. Nonetheless, the runny yolk is adequate to add creaminess to the noodles when mixed together.
While the soup was on the blander side, we were happy with the amount of sayur manis added.
Very spicy chili
A warning: we found the dry chilli mix here to be very potent when compared to Kin Kin’s.
Max was used to adding a full tablespoon of chilli flakes at Kin Kin – which resulted in a bowl that’s quite balanced in terms of spiciness and umami.
However, the chilli here was super fiery hot for the same amount. Hence, do add the chilli sparingly if you’re dining here.
In this sense, we do prefer the chilli mix at Kin Kin as we found it to be less spicy and more fragrant for a more enjoyable experience.
Soup noodles is underwhelming
To be honest, no one comes to a dry chilli pan mee restaurant to order its soup version.
Hence, the Traditional Pan Mee Soup (RM10.80) met our expectations as the soup was bland, and it did not have the requisite anchovies base taste.
On the positive side, they were very generous with the mushrooms, anchovies and minced meat.
Good crispy fried wonton
We enjoyed the Deep Fried Wonton (RM8)here as the skin was thin asd crispy with plump filling of minced pork and carrots. This makes for a decent side dish here.
Overall, if you’re looking for a decent dry chilli pan mee in Kota Damansara – you can’t go wrong with Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee. However, skip the soup version and go easy on the dry chilli mix.
