Chilli pan mee is yet another popular noodle dish that one should definitely try. This fiery hot noodle concoction is comprised of flat, chewy noodles, fried shallots, minced meat, crispy little dried fish, yolk-oozing poached egg and some highly lethal chili flakes.

There’s often a bowl of sweet potato leaves that come with the spicy noodles to help in toning down the flaming hotness of this exquisite dish. Chilli pan mee’s intensity literally does bring one to tears but it also brings one to ask for more. What else does this dish bring you? A truly lovely (and lively) gustatory experience!
