EAT Food Village

EAT Food Village: Round Two. Earlier entry: August 21.

Here's more from this Solaris Dutamas food court, starting with Kin Kin Chili Pan Mee. Even though Kin Kin's main outlet on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman is only a 10-minute drive from my office, this was my first taste of its yolk-sloshed, anchovy-fraught noodles. Delectably creamy and savory, but I heeded everyone's advice by not pouring in too much chili.

The cult of claypot recruited us with this Hun Kee Tian Yuan ginger duck rice, a 40-year-old recipe from chef See To Hun. Well worth the calories, featuring a bonanza of steaming-hot, aromatic rice & tender, gravy-enhanced meat.

Sentul's Ah Yap potato flour noodles, fried in the fashion of Hokkien mee. Not as starchy as feared, though not as satisfying as regular Hokkien mee (dude, where's my pork lard?).

Loke Yun Hainanese chicken rice from Ampang. Fair but forgettable; what we really enjoyed was this set's freshly made ginger chili sauce (not in photo), which proved astonishingly addictive for a mere accompaniment.

Lorong Seratus Tahun curry mee. Nothing like the sight of hearty cockles to warm the cockles of our heart (though the curry seemed too oily to finish).

Bukit Mertajam yam rice with stewed pork & egg. Fragrant grains, flavorful protein.

  9. Ulric: it feels like Sri petaling is more of your neighborhood than mine, even though I also live here! The only Sri petaling eatery on my blog this year is Turkey Point (which isn't exactly Chinese, heh) :D

  10. Hmm. These "portions" seem more like your usual self (see recent alcoholic post of yours). And how can you NOT ask for an extra round of chili paste/flakes to pour into your pan mee? It's the CHILI which makes it GOOD. Trust me lah, brader. :D

  11. So little see hum not enough lah! Should try the premium version, more see hum! hahaha!

  12. Totally agwee with Ckiong - MORE SEE HUM!!!

    (Uhm, for you, that is. I won't touch that nasty stuff even with a pole. Eww.)

  13. kenny: i'd rather have pan mee with THREE eggs and NO chili! chili is seriously scarrrrrrry! the only upshot is that it boosts the metabolism, allowing us to burn calories better (i assume!). now i wonder if pan mee would go well with see hum. must experiment! :D
    ckiong: heheh, there was some more see hum underneath the noodles lah. actually, we ended up eating ALL the see hum, but only managed to finish HALF of the noodles =)

  14. Wow, looks like a gathering of all delightful hawker food! I've heard so much about Kin Kin and I think I would go to Solaris just for the pan mee since the PJness in me has no idea how to get to Jalan TAR. :S

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wendy: heheh, I think of jalan TAR as a nightmare these days too, both in terms of traffic and parking. Hope u get your Kin Kin fix soon, and that it lives up to the hype for you =)

  16. Oh wow.. so is this a similar version of Lot 10 Hutong food court? I see Kin Kin there! Can you believe it I haven't tried Kin Kin before even though i'm a self-proclaimed Chilli pan mee fan! Now I have no excuse not to! :)

  17. iamthewitch: oh yeah, some people might call it a copycat of hutong, heheh. but luckily, the "brands" here are different from the ones at hutong, even though some of the food is similar. hope you manage to check out whether kin kin can meet your expectations! :D

  18. kenny: the kick is in the egg, not the chili! :D

    ReplyDelete
