Jojo Kitchen @ Kuchai Lama

21 03 2011

While searching for a nice place to eat pan mee (flat flour noodle), I came across Jojo Little Kitchen which received positive reviews across numerous food blogs.

There were a variety of pan mee served at Jojo Little Kitchen. I ordered the dry pork pan mee (RM 6.50) which came with strips of black fungus, fried anchovies, minced pork, sweet leaves and fried shallots.

The appeal of pan mee lies with the smooth noodle mixed with the crunchiness of anchovies with the savory taste of mince pork.

In this sense, Jojo Little Kitchen’s dry pork pan mee was certainly tasty.

Once all the ingredients were mixed up with the noodle, a bowl of delicious pan mee was waiting for me to feast on.

While not the best I have tasted, it was certainly good enough to warrant a second visit.

The traditional soup pan mee (RM 6.00) was equally good.

The soup was rich with pork taste which I believe was prepared differently compared to the usual pan mee soup which is cooked primarily with anchovies.

The noodles were springy, the pork was also sweet but the serving was a slightly small.

Overall, I was satisfied with the quality of food at Jojo Little Kitchen. Although comparatively more expensive than coffee shops, the quick service and air-conditioned environment do make up for the steeper price to pay for the food at Jojo Little Kitchen.

Restoran N-Kee @ Ara Damansara

12 08 2010

My colleague recommended a Chinese coffee shop at Ara Damansara for Hakka Mee last week. While I haven’t eaten too many different Hakka Mee to tell which one is the best, the one that I had at N-Kee was quite good. The noodle was served with barbecued pork which was nicely grilled as the outer skin has a slight burnt texture.

They also added minced pork which gives a tinge of sweetness to the dish.

The wanton wasn’t really great. Compared to some of the better ones I have tasted, this one was only average at best.

For RM 5, it is the standard price to pay for lunch nowadays in a city area.

Overall, given the limited choices around Ara Damansara, the  Hakka Mee is one of the better tasting meal around.

Fancy Mee Corner @ Glenmarie

26 06 2010

Fancy eating some delicious Pan Mee? Then head on down to Fancy Mee Corner (pun intended) at Glenmarie. Situated just next to Meng Kee Char Siew, this shop is usually crowded during lunch hour. Hence, I made a wise choice to stop by there for dinner instead as the restaurant was relatively empty during those hours.

Anyway, Fancy Mee Corner is famous for their variety of Pan Mee such as Fish Cakes Pan Mee, Curry Pan Mee, Mince Pork Pan Mee and etc. But for those who prefer the good old traditional Pan Mee, then ‘Mum’s Pan Mee Soup’ would be the obvious choice.

And how was the taste? Basically, it was how a good bowl of Pan Mee supposed to taste like. The usual ingredients such as mushrooms, fried anchovies, mine pork, fungus were included as well.

The Mince Pork Pan Mee was a welcome change for my taste bud. What makes this bowl of noodle so special was the fried fish cakes. As you can see, these fish cakes were nicely fried till golden brown. They were pretty crunchy too.

Once the minced pork sauce is mixed with the noodle, it sure looks appetizing.

If you are a Pan Mee lover (and even if you are not), do give this restaurant a try. As for me, I find their noodle to be quite tasty.
