My Fried Fish Ban Mian 炸鱼板面, $4 for lunch today!
Been craving for Ban mian (essentially handmade flat noodles) after watching the tv program by ah xian on monday nite. I was soo tempted to try it but after finding out that the stall was in KL, I had to tell myself to give up the idea. It was purely coincident that I found out that the KL stall had actually opened an outlet (Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee Singapore) here but the queue got so crazy that I had to satisfy my cravings elsewhere and hence my lunch today. :p
I must have been very lucky as there was no queue when I went but a long one formed after me! The ladies before me ordered either the tom yam noodles or maggie mee and I was tempted to side track too but since I had fish and ban mee in my mind, I stuck to my order.

Most of the noodle stalls sell the same factory made ban mian that is quick to cook but lacks the texture and bite of those handmade ones. That is probably why Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee garnered so much interest as they make their own ban mee.

It is always difficult to resist adding on an egg… ;p It was loaded with a lot of vegetables and cabbage but one thing was missing – ikan bilis! I did not know that their version does not come with it else I would have added it on for an additional $0.50.
