CTNF: Chilli meatballs spaghetti

Kin Kin Pan Mee- Similar, but not the same!

When I had my first taste of Kin Kin Pan Mee, I knew I am in for this whole new obsession with chilli, poached eggs and noodles. I love this style of pan mee so so much, unfortunately for me that Kin Kin is located in the heart of KL (and I am direction blind when it comes to the city), I know I cannot have this whenever I want to.

It has been awhile since my last Cheap Thrills, No Frills ('CTNF') cookout post.

Had some leftover spaghetti in the fridge and immediately the idea of cooking chilli pasta -Kin Kin style- struck me. To make things easier, because I only come home from work at about 7pm, I bought most of the ingredients outside. The pasta is boiled at home of course, the chilli flakes are sold in a bottle for RM5 at the market, the fried anchovies and meatballs were taken away from my aunt's noodle stall, and the minced meat was marinated overnight with soy sauce, corn flour, oil and salt and then stir fried.

You need some skillz to poach eggs, which I think I need to improve on. Other than that, I think the new pasta creation is not too bad! The chilli flakes is not as spicy as Kin Kin's.

**********

I'll be away on a working trip from 8th-10th to Kota Kinabalu. Hoping to visit One Borneo, buy my fav Les Gavottes Le Plain Crepes Dentelle and Swiss Delice Amandelle cookies, a bottle or two of Absolut to start my collection, and try some local cuisines hopefully. I'll be staying at Imperial Hotel, so hopefully there's wi-fi.

Be back on Friday :D

Hey, did you put some vinegar into the water used to poach your egg? It helps to set the egg...don't use too much though, otherwise you'll end up with a pickled egg...lol
