And so I finally finally tried Singapore’s Kin Kin. I was there when the shop just opened for the day and so it was pretty crowded. But by the time we were done with lunch I noticed there wasn’t much people there anymore. Kin Kin, is it just a hype?
A various adaptation of the original pan mee
Famous Dry Chilli. Somehow I felt the one here was a little spicier and I don’t know why the colour of the dry chilli is so red as compared to the KL’s one
The noodles were a little hard and not very q. Other than the ikan billis that was still amazing, the rest of the dishes in the bowl seems to falter in comparison
On a positive note, my egg was runny :)
The beancurd skin was hard, the meatballs were just normal and didn’t have that special ikan billis taste in it but the fishballs were gigantic
Even the free bowl of sweet potato leaves soup didn’t bring back any memories of KL.
The verdict: FAIL
I think famous overseas eatery should just stay, overseas. Like honeymoon desserts from HK, and kin kin from KL. They all do and taste so much better in their originating countries. If not they just bring disappointment to people who want to eat them so much. Read about my review on KL’s kin kin here and you’ll understand how the standard differs so much.
