Food: Super Kitchen Chilly Pan Mee @ Chow Yang, SS2

Ever since food curiosity got the better of us, our paychecks (well, our waistlines too) have suffered greatly. Once in awhile, we retreat back to neighbourhood favourites for a simple dinner. That night, it was Super Kitchen Pan Mee, a quiet pan mee joint located along the same row of shops as Kayu Nasi Kandar and Seeri Authentic Thai Restaurant in Chow Yang, SS2.

 The menu is fairly simple as it is with most pan mee-centric restaurants. The one I usually go for is the chilli-ed version; also their most popular dish. The Chilli Pan Mee (RM 6), with its noodles thick and comfortingly chewy, also comes with tasty seasoned minced pork, fragrant shallots and crispy ikan bilis (anchovies). The noodles come topped with a shiny, bulbous egg, threatening to break apart with a gentle prod of a chopstick. I usually have lunch with colleagues at another pan mee chain, Face2Face, and feel that the noodles here at Super Kitchen are less salty in comparison.

The secret to any chilli pan mee, of course, is the fiery dried chilli flakes on every table. Take the one at Super Kitchen Pan Mee with a great deal of caution! Not one for risk, I usually mix in a spoonful, taste, and repeat these two steps till I'm satisfied. Too much, and it'll be pure torture the next morning :p

I can hear harps playing in the background, accompanying this pic...

Each bowl of chilli pan mee comes accompanied with a small bowl of soup with sweet leaves - the standard pan mee partner.

Another must-have for me is a portion of the Deep Fried Pork Meat (RM8 for small, RM12 for large). The pork fillet is served fresh out of the fryer, with its flesh still juicy. I especially love the batter in this, fragrantly-tinged with five spice and a hint of ginger. If you prefer a smaller portion, you can also opt to have the Pork Chop Pan Mee (RM6); however this version comes sans the egg (which I know a lot of you won't be able to accept :p), minced pork and ikan bilis.

Feeling peckish, we had an additional order of the Fried Wantan (RM5 for small), served with some sweet chilli dip, but this was just a sinful deep-fried snack to be had, with a significant crunch in each bite, the filling not as memorable. On a separate visit I tried the soup dumplings, and I prefered those more.

The drinks are also pretty standard, with their herbal tea of the day and barley being our choices.

Usually yellow during the day - not sure why it's a ghastly green during the night!

Super Kitchen Pan Mee is a good choice for dinner if you're craving some noodles; service is brisk and food affordable for PJ standards these days. I'm more a pan mee fan than Adam is, but at least this is somewhere he wouldn't mind returning too again (I suspect it could be the pork chop that did the trick!).
