Restoran Face to Face noodles house, Damansara Perdana

Was suppose to eat at TK Chong's Ipoh hor fun as Rick said it is pretty good. Most unfortunately, it was not open on the day we went, so we had to crack our heads on what to eat yet again! We looked slightly to our right and tahdah! Face to Face restaurant was so packed, it's really hard for us to just walk away from it.. Seeing that it serves chilli pan mee and sarawak kolo mee kinda triggered my interest so in we went.
Face to Face serves noodles, mostly pan it dry, soup, with chili, thick or thin noodles and with curry chicken. They also serves wantan mee, suikow(dumpling) mee and sarawak kolo mee. SF and I ordered the chilli pan mee (thick noodles) while SL ordered it with thin noodles. Bollywood Queen took pan mee with curry chicken as she dont take pork (that's the only porkless noodles there anyways). The wait was long and our side orders came first..
The fried fish cake...The fish cakes looks suspiciously similar to those served in Bao Bao, so am not too sure who got this idea first. The fish cakes are sliced thinly and deep fried, pretty good as snack.
The fried foo chook (beancurd skin) was served soon after. Not what I was expecting, their version was basically fried foochook served with diluted curry sauce. Nothing to shout about.
Bollywood's curry pan mee was served next..

She thought it was just so so as the noodles were way too thick, the curry was too creamy (with santan) and sweet (of sugar). By the time she finished her bowl, she felt like puking (sorry to disgust you) as the bowl of noodles was just too rich for her..Finally our chilli pan mee was served..

I ordered chilli pan mee as I could not find this noodles anywhere else other than the famous Restoran Kin Kin. Looking at the noodles, it looks pretty decent..The pan mee, the mince meat, fried ikan bilis (anchovies) and our own dollop of dried sambal chilli flakes. The egg, however, was served a tad different from Kin Kin's. Rather than the half boiled egg I expected, it was sunny side up egg. Give the noodles a good mix and makan! Bollywood queen was right, the noodles were a tad too thick. Although the anchovies and mince meat were fine, I was a littlle disappointed with the chilli as it tasted slightly burnt. And the egg was not runny enough to have the chilli flakes clingy on it :(. I think Kin Kin's version is better. Would I come back in the future to try their Kolo Mee? I'm still uncertain bout that.

What Julianne thinks? Average and forgettable

If you are at Curve/Tesco/Ikea and wanna try Face to Face noodles , just drive towards Damansara Perdana.It is located on the left, row of shop where 7Eleven is. Face to Face is at Jalan PJU8/51,Perdana Business Centre

Yeah, those shops who don't want to put MSG in their food will add sugar in it! Guess they're trying to imitate Bao Bao and Kin Kin with their offerings.

Fried egg with pan mee is just strange.

lyrical lemongrass- ya, the egg was too solid to mix with the pan mee. since u may hav not tried pan mee wth egg, i suggest u start with Kin Kin.not that strange la, just different :p
