Face to Face Noodles House

We had a laugh reading this off the restaurant’s website: “The
great grandfather of the founder of "Face to Face" was born in China.
He decided to leave China behind, and seek his fortune in Hong Kong for new
life path in year 1903. He found his first job in HK as a chef’s assistant in a
local restaurant. Being honest and hard working, he won the chef trust and
started to learn the traditional skill on making of Jook-sing noodles which is
considered one of the more rare noodles in existence.” - this is what happens when you google-translate whole sentences!
To appease Brendan’s incessant craving for pan mee, we gave
this place a try. Apparently there are 26 Face to Face branches nationwide, and this branch
is the closest to where we live. Nestled in our favourite part of Jalan Ipoh,
this street hosts a wide variety of Chinese cuisines, and we were thankful to
Face to Face for reacquainting us with this part of Jalan Ipoh. We will
definitely be coming back to this neck of the woods to sample the other
eateries in the vicinity.
To the uninitiated, Pan Mee literally means "flat flour noodle", and is a uniquely Malaysian Chinese cuisine. Okay, back to Face to Face. Bright and cheery ambience has
always appealed to us, and Face to Face is no different. Its lime green theme
sure does a lot to arouse our appetites.

|bright and cheery, warm and welcoming|
|Brendan can't decide what to eat? yeah right!|
|waiting to be served|
Brendan ordered the house specialty’s Hot
& Spicy Pan Mee (what else?), Cat tried the Sarawak Laksa (rice noodles
served in a curry sauce) while I sampled the Dried Curry Chicken Pan Mee. For drinks
Brendan had the Passion Fruit Tea while Cat and I had ordered the Honeydew
|Brendan ordered No. 102|
|This was what Cat ordered|
|but unlike the photo above the prawns drowned|
|three guesses who ordered this...|
|... yup, you guessed right!|
|my dried chicken curry pan mee beckons|
The verdict? Brendan (as usual) thoroughly enjoyed his Pan
Mee while I thought my Pan Mee was pretty good (though a little too oily). Cat
said her Sarawak Laksa was on the bland side, but a smattering of dried chili
remedied the situation.
The damage? All in it came to a respectable RM33.60 which is
within the realms of the everyday food for the everyday person.
