Cili8 Noodle Bar @ Plaza 33, Petaling Jaya

Cili8 fires up its selection with no fewer than eight pan mee recipes, with the noodles freshly prepared everyday - of the three we tried, our favourite is the Treasure Pot Pan Mee (RM29.90++, suitable for two persons), its smooth, hand-made strips of pan mee served in a claypot packed with sea cucumber, abalone, fish maw, scallops, mushrooms & broccoli in a naturally sweet soup. Other options include the Volcano Pan Mee, with minced chicken, mushrooms & fried garlic in belacan-spiked curry laksa (RM11.90++) & the classic Cili Pan Mee with poached egg, chilli flakes, fried anchovies & onions (RM10.90++).

Going beyond pan mee, we like the crispy noodles with smoked duck, tasty & nicely textured on every level (RM14.90).  A few non-noodle creations are available, most notably fried porridge with youtiao & ginger, for a hearty, warming lunch (RM8.90++).

  2. Wah, there's a lot of pan mee types here. I've seen fried porridge on menus before but have never ordered it. I always wonder how you fry porridge! O_o

    1. Contact.ewew: i wonder where fried porridge originated ... if you google it, you'll currently find a lot of entries in singapore, but it looks like it came from malaysia first, with klang as a top contender :)
