Jojo Little Kitchen @ Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya

It was a rainy night and I was supposed to be just relaxing at home until my brother turned up at my place inviting me to go out for dinner. Being a cold night, we wanted to have something simple and a bowl of hot noodles seemed like the perfect fit. I suggested a few places and my brother finally agreed for Pan Mee and that is how we arrived at this place in Kota Damansara. Jojo Little Kitchen has a number of outlets across the Klang Valley and I am not sure if they operate as a franchise now. Nevertheless, this particular outlet is located in The Strand, Kota Damansara and it is quite hidden from the main road. Despite it's location, the place is usually crowded during peak hours.

Jojo Little Kitchen in Kota Damansara

Interior of the Restaurant
Most of the Jojo Little Kitchen outlets are designed quite similarly and this was no exception. The place is definitely not too big but it can hold a decent crowd at any time. The floor space is divided into two areas, the air conditioned area as well as the open air area. Most of their staffs were foreigners and it was interesting to observe that so was the case with their kitchen helpers.

The Menu
Their menu was quite impressive with at least fifteen different variety of Pan Mee's. The type of noodles could also be chosen according to one's preference. Besides the noodles, you are also able to select add on items according to your taste like additional anchovies, additional noodles etc.

Chili Flakes to add on according to preference

Coca Cola @ RM 2.80
We both had Coca Cola and it was priced at RM 2.80 each. On every table, a variety of chili flakes were provided and this is for add on's to the Pan Mee dish to suit it to your taste. 

Chili Pan Mee @ RM 7.00

All Mixed Up with Additional Chili Flakes
The Chili Pan Mee was quite satisfying. There was a good amount of noodles, minced pork, anchovies and a lovely runny egg and it was served quite hot. Obviously the Chili Flakes was insufficient for me and I added another three spoonfuls to bring it to my desired level of spiciness. I have tried Chili Flakes in a number of Pan Mee restaurants but here it was not too spicy and that was the reason I had to add more of it. Nevertheless, it was a decent bowl of Chili Pan Mee. I would rate this at 7.5/10 .  

Fishball Noodles @ RM 6.30

All Mixed Up
The Fish ball Noodles was a non spicy dish. It came with more soy sauce, a decent amount of noodles, three Fish Balls, some anchovies and some vegetables. Nothing great to shout about but it was a decent dish to have. I would rate this dish at 7/10 .

Fish Ball Soup @ RM 5.50

Closer Look at the Fish Ball
Besides the noodles that we had earlier, we also ordered a bowl of the above Fish Ball Soup. It comes in choices of either Fish Ball or Pork Ball. Eight Fish Balls in a bowl of soup was priced at RM 5.50 which is quite acceptable. The Fish Balls were good, they were soft and fresh. The soup too was quite good and besides having the fish balls in it, it also came with some leafy vegetables which together, tasted quite nice. I would rate their Fish Balls at 8.7/10 .

Fish Cake @ RM 6.50

Closer Look At The Fish Cake
Their Fish Cakes were excellently prepared. They were extremely soft and were very fresh. The outer skin has a slight salty taste and the inner meat was extremely soft and delicious and together, they gelled very well. I would rate their Fish Cakes at 8.8/10 .

Overall, they definitely are serving some good bowls of Pan Mee which are decently priced and of an above average quality. I would not say that their food is mind blowing as I have tried better ones elsewhere, but it definitely is a good place to have a quick bowl of hot Pan Mee and their greatest advantage is the variety that they have which is something that you may not find elsewhere under one roof.
