How about a warm bowl of Pan Mee? Ever tried Pan Mee? The one our photographer tried contained the usual egg noodles, sayur manis (those green leaves), fried anchovies, wood-ear mushroom, and meat. Our photographer told us that this bowl of Pan Mee cost RM 5.

I have to say I did not take to its taste especially with the ‘Ikan Bilis’ in it, which overpowered the flavours; and would not savour it again. I felt the blending of the ingredients messed up the taste palate. Perhaps other sellers might have done a better job at it. The comments would not go down well with the Pan Mee fans, who might take a pot shot at me for being negative. Mano March 11, 2016 at 1:31 pm - Reply My first taste of Pan Mee was in the 1980’s in Petaling Jaya, arguably the food haven of Selangor or at least at that time. Ngai C.O reaction to it’s taste is quite true. I scrunched my face up on my first mouthful. The ‘ikan bilis’ hits your palate like a freight train and as you chew, the over fried extra hard ikan bilis shred your gums! I guess, coming from Ipoh and being used to the delicacies there puts one in a frame of mind. For instance, I once got an Aussie friend of mine to try a piece of Mooncake. He didn’t like it because the colour of the Tau Sah filling told his palate to expect caramel! Nevertheless, I did eventually began to get the taste past this ‘ikan bilis hurdle’, learnt to chew a bit gingerly and actually began looking forward to a meal of Pan Mee. felicia March 14, 2016 at 11:26 am - Reply Hi Mano. I was told that there is another version of this dish – a spicier version of Pan Mee (can’t recall the actual name of the dish though). I wonder if this has an acquired taste too…. Mano March 18, 2016 at 4:20 pm - Reply Hi Felicia, even if I had come across this ‘spicier’ version, I would have given it a wide berth. Embarrassed to say, I can’t stand chillies. I like the flavour but certainly not the heat. It drowns all other flavours, makes my eye water, gives me a running nose, sweaty and itchy scalp. Not to mention a stinging tongue. And if it’s with a wine or beer, the alcohol makes the tongue even more sensitive and sting twice as much!
