... the signboard used was uncannily similar to that of Kin Kin's. Does it mean the panmee is cold?
... both me and EL had umbra juice. We laughed really loudly before coming to the conclusion of ordering umbra juice.
... the soup with vege in it. Not as good as Kin Kin's though.
... I don't think anyone can differentiate this from the original. Probably except for the colour of the bowl used.
... this is the key to the success and cloud 9 (hell's fury to some).
... I only put in 2.5 scoops, fearing that it might get out of control.
... these sui gao (水餃), you can't get them from Kin Kin though.
... looked spicy. Luckily it was red enough, otherwise I might've put in extra scoops.
... even the soup can't escape from the chili.
I’ve always wanted to try out the Kin Kin’s immitation chili panmee called Super Kitchen. The first outlet was opened at the opposite row of where Kin Kin was located. Every time I was there, I was reluctant to try out the fake one, fearing that I might regret it, since I’ve travelled so far. Later, I found out that Super Kitchen has quite a number of outlets throughout KV. I was glad to know that nearby my place, there’s an outlet in Kota Damansara.
So, today was my off day, me and EL went shopping. So I suggested to him to come give this immitation a try. The umbra juice was nothing to shout about. Not the best I’ve had. While the noodle. Well, the noodle was very similar in texture and taste as compared to the original one. Somehow, the chili was not as good as the original one. I suspect it was the lack of crab meat/shell in it. I was told by a friend that Kin Kin used crushed crab meat and shell in their chili, thus the unique taste and fragrance.
I would say, the clone stand out pretty close to the original one. The price was a bit higher though. Not sure if Kin Kin has raised its price. I’ve never been there for so long. I guess being a clone wasn’t that bad, especially you are innovative. They even serve extra stuff which Kin Kin doesn’t provide. Aside from that, you don’t have to look at the snobbish boss of Kin Kin and get kicked out of the shop after you’ve finished your food.
