Have you ever heard of "Chilli Mee" (辣椒面) before?

This stall located on the second storey of Golden Mile Complex sells exactly that, together with Prawn Mee (肉骨虾面) and Laksa (叻沙).

This is the first time I have heard of "Chilli Mee" and I do not have the slightest clue what it really is. Consisting of ingredients borrowed from the Prawn Mee and Laksa, the impression this bowl of Chili Mee give me is japalang because it is "a mix of everything".

I suppose it got its name due to the noodles being slathered with a generous portion of the savoury chilli sauce.

However, do not be intimidated by the mere sight of it. After a taste, it was not that spicy at all. In fact, I do not even find it spicy. Without a doubt, the chilli is made from a secret blend of spices which gave it its fragrance and flavors.

My $3 bowl (also available for $4 and $5) consists of one prawn, one spare rib, some slices of hard boiled egg, fishcake, taupok, taugeh and a considerable mound of bee hoon and mee.

The prawn is crunchy but small while the spare rib is fall-off-the-bone tender.

Unfortunately, the yellow noodles were soggy so I felt a little sick after a few mouthfuls. If not for the bee hoon, I would have find the bowl of mee hard to stomach although in the end, I still did not managed to finish it.

I saved the soup for the last thinking it is prawn soup but I was wrong. There is a distinct herbal aroma about it that reminds me of Bak Kut Teh. The flavor is good but a little too sweet.

I find eating this Chilli Mee no different from eating a bowl of Prawn Mee. In fact, if I were to eat this in a blindfold test, I would have thought that I am actually eating Prawn Mee.

This makes me wonder how does their Prawn Mee really taste like? Do they actually use the same special chilli and soup?

In conclusion, this Chilli Mee is something that I would eat once for the novelty of it but it did not wow me enough to want another bowl.
