Pan Mee @ Taman Miharja, Kuala Lumpur

I'm currently crazy about Pan Mee, something to do with a persistent cough I have which is preventing me from eating any spicy food. Although this place seems quite far away from home, it is well connected with the highways so eating here has been a breeze so far.

Located in front of a block of apartments where they operate from a makeshift stall, this place has no name but everyone knows it as "the pan mee place at Miharja" or "the pan mee place under the big tree". They make a few varieties here - the rough cut version known as Mee Hoon Kueh and the machine shredded noodles version. You get a choice between the dry version and soup here. Note that their Mee Hoon Kueh version is cut into squares versus the hand torn pieces like Lian Heng.

What I like about this place is the dough of the noodles is silky smooth. It seems the secret ingredients is butter! They're also very generous with their toppings - shredded black fungus, sayur manis leaves, crunchy ikan bilis, chopped coriander and deep fried shallot. Although there is also minced meat, it is very little thus making these noodles almost vegetarian. Another item they sell is the pork ball - delicious with dry cuttlefish bits.

The chili sauce is also potent with lots of chopped green chilies and seeds to give it the fiery heat needed. Help yourself from bottles they will place at your table when you get your bowl of noodles. The stall also sells drinks - herbal tea and cincau. The portions here are big - a generous bowl costs RM4.50 (large portion) which will come chockfull of ingredients.

Pan Mee Stall
In front of Miharja Flats
At the crossroads of Jalan Palong and Jalan Kelian
Kuala Lumpur

(Non Halal. Open from morning till lunch time. Closed on first Monday and Tuesday of the month. To get here, if you are driving from town on Jalan Loke Yew towards Cheras, make a left turn when you see UE3 Plaza, go straight and then take the first right turn, past the shophouses and take the left turn. This is Jalan Palong, go straight down and you will reach an area with flats and lots of stalls outside. This stall is at the corner of the flats and just across is Jalan Kelian. The stall is on the right hand side in front of the flats.)
