Kafe Cha Cha Pan Mee Original (查查正宗板面) @ Kuchai Lama (Ceased Operation)

After spending our Raya break abroad, wifey & I began to crave for some local fare so we decided to hunt for some hawker food around the neighborhood. As we we rounding the place, we noticed this shop which came with a rather funky name.

This outlet has a simple decor with indoor/outdoor seating and I guess the owners must enjoy dancing the Cha Cha (查查) so much that they name their outlet after it!

Cha Cha original Pan Mee (查查正宗板面) @ RM 5.50 ~ Wifey went for this hand peeled version that comes with the standard potato leaves, sliced mushrooms & minced meat. The soup is good and the dough is smooth but a bit thick for her ! Slighty thinner would be better! 

Cha Cha Chili Pan Mee (查查辣椒板面/干捞) @ RM 5.50 ~ I ordered this version as I wanted something spicy. Instead of the common flat strip type, a round  version of noodle is used. Not bad and quite nice too! As I was prepared for a spicy taste, I was puzzled when I took my first bite only to find it tasting like an ordinary dry pan mee! Probably knowing we’re new customers, the lady boss came over and told me that I have to add the chili flakes which were provided in jars on the table myself as one can control the level of spiciness this way. 

This bowl of soup comes with my chili pan mee. The soup tasted ok but the potato leaves were old and chewy. 

Spicy Soup Chili Pan Mee (查查辣椒板面/清汤) @ RM 5.50 ~ Mom ordered the hand peeled version that comes with meatball, bean curd skin (f腐竹). The soup was rather spicy but it gets a little bitter as it goes along maybe due to the fact of being too spicy. Mom did not enjoy it that much due to the bitterness of the soup. The dough was smooth but again a little thick. 

Cha Cha Cha Yoke (查查炸肉) @ RM 5.50 ~ Deep fried and well marinated with crispy skins and tender meat. 

Different type of chillies available for your own selection. I never had enough of them, especially the chilli flakes! I whacked half a bottle in my bowl of pan mee!

Plum Pear Juice (砂梨果汁) @ RM 2.90 ~ Good thirst quencher especially after a spicy bowl on pan mee! 

3 Color Tea (三色奶茶) @ RM 3.50 ~ A combination of delicious flavours of milk, tea & palm syrup served in separated layers in a single glass. Sweet & creamy! 

Totaled @ RM 28.40 for this simple meal at a simple cafe. Besides the normal pan mee, Cha Cha offers other varieties of pan mee such as the curry version, the chili prawn, cha yoke and  I would like to try the sour plum pan mee on my next visit. It’s something like the Teochew steam fish broth, according to the friendly lady boss, Jess. Hope I won’t regret it or maybe I should ask wifey to try instead! 😉 Till then…Happy Malaysia Day!
