KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee is found at 534 MacPherson Road (moved from its previous location).

Even the whole look and ingredients sounds alike, the noodle bowl added with crispy ikan billis, minced meat, meatballs (the generic machine-made type), poached egg, lastly topped with the signature homemade dry chilli flakes.

The “Top 10 dishes” at KL Traditional Chilli Ban Mee include Signature Chili Ban Mee, Signature Abalone Combo Ban mee ($13), Signature Hand-Made Fresh Fishball Mee ($5), Minced Pork Mee ($5), Scallop Chili Ban Mee ($8), Abalone Chili Ban Mee ($10), Signature Hand-Made Fresh Fishball Soup ($4), Porkball Soup ($4), Fish Dumpling Soup ($4), and Signature Abalone Combo Soup ($13).

Prices are considered reasonable, taken in account the amount of ingredients.

I ordered the Signature Chili Ban Mee ($5) which was acceptably-tasty. The ikan billis fried till light and crisp brought out a more layered texture upon biting.

The highlight to me was the fried chilli flakes, which were indeed terrifically spicy, and gave a needed shiokness to the Ban Mee.

On a side note, the soup cooked with vegetables made good accompaniment – tasty, has depth, not salty.

Personal preference, I wished that the noodles could have been cooked with more springy-bite, ie more QQ.

The question that many will ask: How does this compare to say, Kin Kin or Face To Face Noodle House?

I liked the overall combination at Kin Kin better – it has more ‘taste’; and Face To Face’s noodles had a more layered seasoning and bite of the noodles.
