Kin Kin Chilli Ban Mian (KL)

Singaporeans (we have this streak in, at least, most of us) love to queue. You can spot this trend in our love for food, warehouse sales and even for Hello Kitty! Kin Kin Chilli Ban Mian is a franchise from Restoran Kin Kin from Kuala Lumpur and is known for their Signature Dry Ban Mian.

Kuala Lumpur brand – called Restoran Kin Kin with three outlets in Malaysia – is known for its signature dry ban mian or handmade noodles.
The noodles served here are made in Singapore, and come topped with crispy ikan bilis, fried shallots, meatballs, minced meat and a poached egg.

Approximately two months ago since the opening of this popular brand from Malaysia, patrons have to queue up along as 2 hours before being served, accordingly certain sources. Thankfully I didn’t have to go through that ordeal. 

Without much effort, we decided to order the dry and soup version of the ban mian since that was what we came for. However, what was astounding is that it’s priced at $5 compared to the average $3.5. Next was their business strategy of no adding of noodles! So if you are a big eater, prepare at least $15 for your trip down here. 

Soon after, the noodles came. Decent looking and nothing fanciful. But don’t judge a book by it’s cover, right? Soup base was clear unlike the typical ones where is thicken by the starch. Noodle was normal to me, nothing special. However, the chilli was the x factor. Very often, those chilli that are provided are sambal chilli and doesnt really goes well with the noodle, but it was a different case over here. The chilli was fragrant and gave a ‘kick’ to the soup and noodle making the eating experience  pleasurable. Another highlight, would be the poached egg. 

Overall, it was comfortable to dine in as it was fully air conditioned and they served good chilli. But I have yet to come to terms with $5 for a ban mian. Nevertheless, it’s worth the try!
