Pudu Pan-Mee

I recently took you on a little tour of Pudu for delicious soup. Now, to introduce it's neighbouring pan-mee stall! It's right next to the soup stall and I usually end up ordering pan-mee too while having soup. Got to kill two birds with one stone since Pudu isn't that close by!

It's manned by this husband and wife team and they do a brisk business to both their own customers and the soup customers who don't mind something extra soupy! They only have one version - soup but you can have the option of either hand-cut pieces or long noodles. I prefer the hand-cut ones. It tends to leave it with a rough, uneven texture that makes good chewing!

A bowl comes piping hot with lots of vegetables, pan-mee pieces, mushrooms and lean pork slices and topped with a handful of crispy anchovies. The meat and mushrooms have been pre-cooked in a savoury gravy which adds a nice flavour to the soup.

I find that it makes a nice dinner if you're looking for something light. Then again, I am quite the pan-mee fan! Do give it a try if you are ever in that area!

I've never quite got the hang of Pan Mee, no matter how many times I've tried it. I still would pick wanton mee first! Or Chow Kway Teow.. Am I weird?

Hey I am a pan mee fan too! I normally get my fix at the end shop in TTDI. This auntie makes the best pan mee, in my opinion la (and also among the chinese community in IBM :P) If you are feeling adventurous and want to try, let me know, I'll explain the exact location for you.

And this place that you featured, I will give it a try it the next time I'm at that area. Definitely!

LB - not weird la :) To each their own! I didn't use to like pan mee too but I think for me, the al dente texture of the noodle or pieces of flour appeals to me most!

Angie - End shop in TTDI? Is it the corner one opposite the houses called Yok something? I don't really go to TTDI much but I'll definitely give it a try the next time I'm there! I like dry ones too but this stall only has the soup kind. I think he only comes out in the evenings, around 5+ or 6. Do let me know what you think! :)

The best pan min stall in the world exists in Bukit Serdang, Seri Kembangan. It used to be known as chit kak tiam (70 sen stall) amongst the UPM students staying in the area...and it really did serve the very basic pan min for that price!

Of course, you´ll have to pay a little more if you opted for more add-on ingredients. Sad thing is...I don´t know if it exists anymore!

Orbiter - The memories of getting lost looking for a "Best in the World" stall which has either moved or changed location is still very fresh in my mind! :p
