Big Eater, Kuchai Entrepreneurs' Park

UPDATE: Last visit to this area in Sept'07, this restaurant cannot be found. Hmm wonder if it's moved or just closed down. Pity.
This almost forgotten area is booming. It's on a fast track to becoming a busy, even more congested but much sought after piece of prime land. Just take a drive around and one will find more flyover highways being constructed, new land being cleared for new condominiums/apartments, brand new shoplots being snapped up and racing to start new businesses. Afterall, it is only 15mins drive to/from KL city centre, PROVIDED the Seremban Highway & Sungei Besi main road looks & works like a highway.

Needless to say cafes offering western, eastern, fusion and local flavours dots every row of the new shop houses there. So far, I have tried a few and find this worth mentioning.
Big Eater features 'pan-meen'/'pan-mien'/ literally translated as 'flat wood noodles'? They do offer a few other side dishes but so far, I have only been back for the noodles. Here goes the pictures:-

Big containers of 3 types of ground chili to spice up the noodles.
Red = sambal, Yellow = more lime-y, Black - dried chili flakes (deadliest & my favourite!)
Soup Pan-meenDry Pan-meen
Oya, must not forget these, our orders of 'Cham-Pings' (Iced mixture of coffee+tea drinks). Not overly sweet, thick & aromatic.Fatty Poh aka Firehorse, this is especially dedicated to you.
Our bill:-
Location (Address & map):- Sorry for the blur map but it was the best my camera would do. Somehow, it just refused to 'perform'. I have tried all the functions:- simple, macro, auto, portrait etc. Failed. So, let me try to describe in words. Hopefully you are familiar with Kuchai Entrepreneurs' Park. From the Seremban Highway, exit at the Kuchai Lama turnoff. Follow the road & keep left. When reached a cross junction, cross to the opposite where you be able to see a new Maybank branch. Turn right as Big Eater is on the same row as the bank. Phew.

On our few visits found the waitresses who served us speak only Mandarin. Cannot even understand Cantonese! Mainland Chinese, maybe? Luckily they have a pictorial menu.

Learned two brothers are operating this eatery, most said the evening session is better and tastier compared with the morning one.

wow, didn't know bond yields and pan meen can make such good companions! Is parking difficult here?

Tummythoz said...

boo_licious, bond yields? Huh?
Parking not really a problem yet, on weekends. Oya, it's free too.

Kok said...

Wow, yummy yummy! How's the pan mien? Is it the most delicious you can find? hehe. I don't know we have the "cham" here in Miri or not. But we have Neslo. Nescafe+milo. :)

By the way, you are served by "Clerk Name 00001". haha!

My goodness, pan mee. I haven't made that for a long time. My kids' favourite. We call it mee-hoon kueh.

I don't use the noodle machine but my fingers to tear into pieces.

Tummythoz said...

kok, not d yummiest but so far, d most comfortable - airconditioned & pleasant decor. My other haunts consist of hawkers where patrons fight for crickety tables and sweat buckets.
We usually get our Neslo fix at d mamak stalls. Slurp!

dr ve thru, I went thru your blog & could not find it. Hey, make it again & do a post-lar! *rubbing hands in anticipation*.

MeiyeN said...

da chilies look so tempting!!! very "chi-kik" to have it with da "pan-mee"!!! will definitely give this place a try, thanks for da info! :D

Tummythoz said...

meiyen, please do & tell me how you like it. Then can compare tastebuds!

boo_licious said...

hmmm, I noticed you took the pix of the card on top of info on bond yields hence the mention. Looks like a text book on CF stuff. Wonder if that's Brealey and Myers.

jason said...

I like to add chilli sauce to the dry noodle. It's been some time since I had pan-meen ~_~

Tummythoz said...

boo_licious, you r just sooo very observant! I am impressed! Oh, nothing to do with noodle, of coz. Took the pix at home. Just used d mag as background for contrast. Hmm.. u must b in this market to have notice *again put on 'kepoh' look*.

jason, remember to focus on breathing when slurping. Choking on such fiery stuff can be nightmarish! Been there, dun that. Lol.

lightfl said...

Dried chili with pan mee, my favourite, normally will add in garlic also...

Tummythoz said...

lightfl, welcome welcome
