Discovered a new dish during my recent trip home to Kuala Lumpur. It’s called Chilly Pan Mee and it’s super damn nice!
Forget everything you knew about the “Ban Mian” we know in Singapore. This is THE CHILLY PAN MEE – with noodles textured like ramen, a poached egg, minced meat and as much chilli flakes as you want to add. And then you mix it all up!
I don’t really like Ban Mian in Singapore, in fact I don’t think I have even ordered any Ban Mian for the last couple of years.
When my mom first told me about this Chilly Pan Mee in Malaysia, I wasn’t overly excited to try it because I thought it’s the same Ban Mian in Singapore. How good can they make that? LOL
But finally I tried and omg, I want to eat it again and again and again!
Check out these mouth-watering pictures. Go try!
Only RM6 per bowl!
There are many other places that sell this and are apparently more popular too. Try Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee – apparently the best in KL but I haven’t tried.

*Pan Mee and Ban Mian is the same, just pronounced differently in different languages with the latter being Mandarin and the former being Cantonese.
On a recent trip back to KL to visit my family, they brought me to their new favourite dinner haunt - Medan Selera Kheng Heong. This place is an unassuming small "coffeeshop-like" place which serves chinese food. I'm here to share mouth-watering pictures of our dinner!
Chi Kong (Boxing Chicken) - looks hard & dry but it's really juicy and tender. I saw other diners ordering this and wasn't interested much but my mom said it's a must-try and how my brother finished the whole plate by himself. This is really a must-try! I took a bite into it and the lovely juices of chicken exploded in my mouth! I am trying to take less fried food and this just made me cheat on my diet!
Salted Egg Bittergourd. This was okay. The bittergourd was harder than I expected it to be but the salted egg sauce was good. The bitterness of the gourd with the salted egg taste was a great combination.
The way this Spicy Braised Grouper was presented to us diners leaves much to be desired but boy it was good (albeit unhealthy cos it's soooo saucy!!). The fish was very fresh. Totally should try this!
Normal dish to order, Fried Yau Mak. Nothing to shout about. Could be less oily.
Kam Heong Crab (RM70/kg) is a must-try. The crab was big and very meaty. The Kam Heong sauce was very nice and the taste of curry leaves, curry powder, dried shrimps, shallots, garlic, and chilies came together perfectly.
If you're looking for a place for good, no nonsense chinese dinner (& the federal highway is all jammed up), you know where to go!
My meal above here + a dish of Kang Kong for 6 persons came up to be RM144/- with own tea & 4 plates of rice. Worth a second visit? Definitely!

This is my second trip to Dynasty Dragon. On my first trip here, I think we ordered a wider variety of food. This time around, they had some promotion going on with their crabs and since we have some big love for these crustaceans, we decided to revisit Dynasty Dragon.
We had a total of 9 crabs! The crabs were small and took us a lot of effort to eat. On the bright side, the cooking was quite good.
This is the steamed version with egg. This isn't my favourite of the three flavours, but I have nothing to complain about this. The eggy part of the crab was soooo yums!
Sweet and sour crab this is. Granddad loved the sauce. We wanted fried buns with the sauce but they ran out The sauce simply BEGGED to be eaten with bread! So disappointed I got no bun!
My favourite had to be this butter crab which was superrrrr nice! It's extremely flavoursome. I found myself licking me fingers! A must try! If only the crabs were larger....this dish would have been splendid.
We also ordered a fried rice which was cooked really nice. It had enough "wok hei". The grains of rice were all nicely individual and not lumpy. This is a simple dish that's truly hard to master. At Dynasty Dragon, I found theirs acceptable and would order again.
I am not sure what this veg dish is called but I named it Exotic Vege. There are heaps of stuff in there that I don't eat but those that I did eat were nicely done and not too oily.
Fried Hor Fun. This is a hugeeee portion (not cheap too at about rm30). This is a very unique dish that I haven't quite seen anywhere except at Dynasty Dragon. I liked the noodle texture and the adding of seaweed. The seaweed gives this dish a unique crisp to it that's worth a try.
The whole meal costed 7 of us a total of RM160++ it's not cheap but that's what you get! Restaurant price! I would definitely return again cos their food is really generally quite good.
