We were actually looking for Kong Bee Lee Pan Mee, which was previously located at the building before Tatsu Jin Japanese Restaurant and moved to Jalan Perak. However, due to some confusion by mystery man, we ended up at Kwong Ban Lee Pan Mee coffee shop at Tanjung Bungah, and coincidently they have a pan mee stall. The boss mentioned previously he operated at Batu Feringghi and just moved here recently.
They have both dried and soup version (RM4.00 - small ; RM5.00 - big). Mystery man prefers the dried version, as the dark soy sauce fused well with the thin type pan mee. Shirleen then prefers the soup version as the soup has decent natural essence. Nevertheless, both the pan mee are just above average, as we have tried some great pan mee in Sabah and KL.
The red sambal served with the dried version noodles is awesome, as it is not really spicy but possesses nice taste. Meanwhile, the green chilli served with the soup version has a slight tangy sensation and served as a good condiment.
There are some fish fillets which we thought in the soup version but it turned out to be crab sticks actually. Now I recall Shirleen prefers the soup version because the soup has enormous amount of mani leaves and she likes that!
A cup of coffee for this belated breakfast, to energize ourselves for the food hunt trip later.
Okay, that guy in front of the picture just appeared at the wrong time!
