Pan Mee is always a soup based to me when I was in Penang. Later then I got approached with dry pan mee, which basically pan mee with soy sauce. Stalls in Penang has “Sarawak” in front of the name “pan mee”, I asked my Sarawakian friend about pan mee at there but he told me he doesn’t really know about pan mee being famous in Sarawak. Until now, I don’t know where is the really originality of pan mee. Last week, a blogger friend, Yong Xiang brought me to Taipan, USJ there to try out a famous Chilli Pan Mee.
Basically, Chilli Pan Mee is actually dry pan mee later then add in the dry chilli paste, stir your noodle and it will become Chilli Pan Mee. I was curious and I am a spicy eater so I ordered a bowl to eat.
It comes with a soup in case your noodle is too dry, you can add some soup to wet your noodle.
Normal Pan Mee with dry ikan bilis and minced meat and an egg. Simple as that, but when the homemade spicy chilli paste is added, it tasted all different. And what I wanted to say is, it’s really very very spicy! It’s different from bitting the little cut chilli, or chilli sauce. The Chinese called it 麻辣 (mandarin: ma1 la4) which numb your taste bud and give you a spicy feel. It’s not instant and it’s the most spiciest feel ever. I saw Yong Xiang added 3 scoop of the chilli paste and I added 2 scoop and it’s really very spicy. I wonder how he could eat it.
For newbie, I recommend you to start with half a scoop to feel the taste first. If it’s not enough only add more. If you have a bad stomach, you better don’t eat it. You will feel it when you go to toilet the next day.
We also ordered a bowl of 水饺 (mandarin: shui2 jiao3) Chinese Water Dumplings. This is good, something which balance the taste buds from spiciness. What’s so good is the soup of course, but the best is the dumpling which is big and filled with many ingredient in it. I like this.
Overall, this place is pretty cool, but next time for sure I will not add in so many chilli paste already, it’s crazy.
I checked around and this restaurant is not only available in Taipan, USJ but several places. So you can check it out if you have never been to before and want to try some spiciness.
