A friend of mine who doesn't take Pan Mee told me one day he discovered a gem offering good Pan Mee in Taman Sri Sentosa. He said the Pan Mee is really good, but somehow, I wasn't too interested as Taman Sri Sentosa is not a place I would venture into. There is nothing wrong with this place, it's just that it sounded far to me. Then, this place was featured in a local food program in 8TV called "Ho Chak" and it looked really good. What made up my mind to give this place a try was when I read Boolicious post on it. The photo of the pan mee which she took was imprinted in my mind for the whole day so I made up my mind to make a visit the very next day.
This place is quite easy to find as it's located right in front of a wet market. There is a big signboard right in front of the shop, if not mistaken, it says 'Hand Pulled Noodle'? There are few tables outside the shop but all occupied!! Luckily there was an empty table inside. I have waited a day for this and I didn't want to wait any longer.
While waiting for our order to arrive, I saw this article from the Chinese press pasted on the wall. Before cooking the dough, it is cut into smaller pieces and handpulled to make into a long strand.
There are two version of Pan Mee here, either dry or soup. Hubby was so accommodative to order the dry version for me to snap a photo as he opted for soup version earlier. The delicious looking bowl of Pan Mee was loaded with minced pork, sliced wood fungus and mushrooms, fried ikan bilis, sweet potato leaves and drizzled with black sauce.
My soupy version of Pan Mee came with the same ingredients as the dry version, minus the black gravy. The ikan bilis stock was good and gave me a homemade feel; flavourful and tasty. The longer you soaked the minced pork and ikan bilis, the soup even taste much better. Not a drop wasted!
As for the noodle, I simple love it. It was smooth and silky yet retains its chewiness (QQ). The fact that it was long doesn't make it any difficult to eat. My only complain is that my small portion was too small...should have opted for big portion. Sigh...
There are also a few types of side order such as porkballs, otak otak and pandan chicken. For this round, I only get to try the porkballs which tasted pretty normal stuff that you can get from the wet market. No complain as it goes very well with our delicious bowl of Pan Mee.
