Bao-Bao @ Puchong Jaya

Ah... a non-pan mee expert trying to recommend a pan mee ;-)

Bao-Bao pan mee has been there for quite some months, but I didn't pay attention to them simply because they are selling pan mee, which is always not my first choice when come to meal decision.

As other pan mee sellers, the most important element while eating pan mee is the chili, and I think Bao-Bao has done a great job in preparing this (I'm not good in chili, so please judge it yourself). Bao-Bao offers 4 type of chili sauces, I must confessed I only tried a pinch of them, but I quite like the dark sambal and the typical pan mee sauce (west and south in the photo).

If you want to have these chili sauces at home, Bao-Bao also sells them in bottles, just like Nando's peri peri sauce. I didn't check the price per bottle as it will take me years to finish a bottle.

We've tried their famous pan mee, both dry and soup (RM 4.20). They have prepared it a bit unusual, because I didn't see the typical Chinese black fungus (木耳), fried ikan bilis and minced pork. If you said they are creative, I think I will agree, because they've replaced the fried ikan bilis with chopped fried bean curd skin stuffed with fish paste, which is the normal side dish for noodle in Perak, but at the same time, I also think they've maximize their profit because the cost is really low now.

If I'm not mistaken, you can order fried ikan bilis separately if you want. Taste wise, it's not bad, but for the soup type, it's over flavored as the soup just too sweet. Anyway, chili plays important role here and if you agree with me their sauce is not bad, then I think generally you will like this.

i've tried the branch at Pandan Indah..i agree that the pan mee is fairly good..

have u tried their meatballs.?? it totally sucks..the portion is quite small..

no doubt they have done a great job for just starting their business not long ago..perhaps just a mere 1 or 2 years..

u gotta try the 1 at Miharja, Cheras..their pan mee and meatball is the bomb..and ofcoz the bring along a BOX of tissue paper..

Looks so deliciously sinful any yet so homely.

xiaoxiao said...

as delicious as the common "ajinomoto"

durianberry said...

No wood ear fungus and minced pork? It's so wrong! Hehe. But still they look good and I'm intrigued to try the pan mee with these different ingredients

tekko said...

yatz : i didn't know they have branch! anyway, i live in miharja years ago, this pan mee is rather "thick" now, they used to be so thin and good.

teckiee : ah.. unfortunately, i haven't try Kin Kin before, but i think Kin Kin is better (from all the reviews), this should be less spicy.

new kid on the blog : that's why... some people will not like this.

wmw : think i need to update my blog, business hour 11am to 9pm.

meiyen : haha... let me know whether you like the chili sauce or not.. cause i'm not expert in chili ;-)

tekko said...

big boys oven : looks good, luckily really not too bad.

xiaoxiao : my dry pan mee not too much aji :-)

durianberry : yea, to me this is really good tactic to increase their profit... he he.

jason said...

Pan mee with char siew? Hey, that's something special.

tekko said...

jason : yea, they also selling the original pan mee if you don't want to try this :-)

Jackson said...

i drove pass this outlet many time and its usually 9pm... seems not so many customer... but i tot of giving them a try since yr review was not bad..hee

tekko said...

jackson : of course not much people, 9pm they almost end business :-)

Brian said...

that's not friend ikan bilis. It's some kinda fish stuff... either fried fish skin or stomach or something.

anyway bao bao isn't as nice as the taman mayang one

tekko said...

Brian : taman mayang also bao bao? or different shop?
