My Love for Chilli Pan Mee at Jojo

  • Sharebar

Today I shall blog about a place that my colleagues and I go frequently for lunch. In fact, we visit this place so often that they are asking me not to blog about it in case the restaurant becomes full house and we can’t get a table for lunch next time! *LOL* Too full of myself eh? The truth is, the place is already crowded and popular as it is. And it is no other than Jojo Little Kitchen, a restaurant famous for its pan mee.

The menu

There are several branches of Jojo but the one closest to our office is situated in Seri Kembangan. We went there ever since it started business last year, and have been loyal patrons right up to this day. We watched it grow from a restaurant with merely few patrons to the full house it is right now. Go there during lunch time and you’ll see what I mean.

Busy restaurant

That aside, let me show you what we order usually. My drink will always be the Soya Cincau, or some call it Michael Jackson, due to the Black and White nature. ;)

One of my colleagues always never failed to order the Traditional Pan Mee, which came with hearty broth and crunchy anchovies on the side.

Thick version of pan mee

Another of my colleague ordered the Pan Mee with pork meat, which came with some lardy goodness! I didn’t manage to try this but from the look of it, I could tell that it was sinful and good!

Check out the lard! And the springy meat balls.

Lard and meat balls make a bowl of pan mee even better

But of course, that’s not the reason I’m writing this post. The reason I’m writing this post is to show you the awesomeness of the Lat Jiu Pan Mee (Chilli Pan Mee) that Jojo has to offer. During my maiden visit to Jojo, I ordered this dish, and ever since, I’ve always ordered this dish. I must have been there for more than 10 times! And my colleagues kept asking me, why did I order the same thing every single time? How did you know there’s no better ones in the menu?

Lat Jiu Pan Mee (RM5.80)

Well, my answer is simple – you’ll never know. But why change when you’ve found your love? ;) My love for Chilli pan mee goes deep. The lightly fried minced meat, the crunchy anchovies and the runny egg are all perfect ingredients for my noodles. Give them a good stir, together with chilli flakes, and you’ll end up with a bowl of glistening, golden red noodles begging to be eaten. I have to tell you, the process of stirring is no easy feat as I keep salivating when the aroma attacked my nose buds, yet, I couldn’t eat them because I wanted to make sure it was mixed really well. So you just have to withhold the urge for that good few minutes and when you eat it, voila! Satisfaction guaranteed. *LOL*

Well mixed Chilli pan mee

Always opt for thin noodles as I thought they go better with the chilli. Also, thinner noodles allow for better coverage of the gravy. I like Jojo’s pan mee because it’s not overly soft nor hard, just the correct amount of firmness and well-cooked.

Drooling?

I’m certainly drooling now looking at the bowl of chilli pan mee. Ah, guess no prize for guessing what’s for lunch later? :P

    We had tried before this JoJo Kitchen too in different place, Kuchai Lama. Their pan mee is very unique, really love them very much :) Oh ya, we noticed that the branch in Kuchai Lama isn’t that packed with people even though it’s lunch time unlike the one in Seri Kembangan.

    Chilli Pan Mee looks real good.

    A good business idea for ban mee sellers here in Singapore.
