Food: Shi Fu Wan Tan Restaurant - Taman Segar, Cheras

If you happen to be at Cheras Leisure Mall, I strongly recommend you to walk out from the comfort of the air conditioned mall and patronise the Shi Fu Wan Tan restaurant. It's along Jalan Manis 4 and you won't miss the restaurant. The restaurant will capture your attention with its ancient Chinese themed and nicely decorated with red lanterns.

Just like any Chinese themed restaurant, the exterior and interior of the restaurant is nicely decorated with wooden walls, wooden tables and chairs, bamboo blinds to shed the sunlight, wooden Chinese signboards and bird cages hanging on the ceiling. The setup is perfect for a rustic old Chinese movie scene... LOL.

I have patronised this restaurant few times and I truly enjoy the food and the comfortable atmosphere of the restaurant. Let's have a look at their menu.

They carry a wide variety of dry and soup Wantan noodles - fresh prawns, char siew and dumplings. You can also order some side dishes to accompany your noodles. Pardon the blurry images I'm being bugged by my hungry son to place order fast.

At the back of their menu is their selection of desserts and beverages. Tempted with their cold icee desserts but have to refrain since I'm controlling my boys from having cold stuff. So I have to settle for their soya cincau.

Surprisingly, not all of their dishes are in the menu. The rest are printed on their order slip. I ordered the char siew wantan dry noodles for my boys to share. For me the dry Pan Mee and my wife, The World's No1 Spiciest Pan Mee. Yes, you heard me right. The World's No1 Spiciest. My wife loves spicy food and having tasted our fair share of spicy pan mee, we were wondering how spicy could this be. Even the waiter reconfirmed with us on our order of the Spiciest Pan Mee.

The char siew wantan mee is served with a bowl of wantan in soup (RM7.50-large). Their wantan noodles are very different from normal. It's very thin and springy and my boys love it. Their char siew are also nicely cooked and juicy.

The bowl of wantan in soup that came with the noodles are not bad. Each wantan is of decent size and wrapped with pork filling.

The dry Pan Mee (RM6.00) is served. The pan mee is garnished with lots of fried anchovies, minced pork, fried shallots and a poached egg. Yummy, it looks absolutely appetizing and I couldn't wait to mix all the ingredients and have a bit of the noodle.

Drums rolling and trumpet blaring. Here comes the World's No1 Spiciest Pan Mee (RM9.50). Initial look, it looks the same as my normal pan mee. It's garnished with lots of fried anchovies, minced pork, fried shallots, a poached egg and lots of chilli. My wife took a few bite and told me that it is indeed very spicy and I could only comment, "if you say it's spicy it must be very spicy then". I tried a mouthful of the noodles and initially it was OK. Then the explosion started as I can feel the heat building up from my stomach and my tongue started to go numb from the chilli. I can feel that my face turned red hot, eyes water and I started to sweat profusely. Phew, definitely not for the faint hearted. For those chilli addicts, I strongly that you take the challenge and try out this World No1 Spiciest Pan Mee.

A chat with the owner and he mentioned that the ingredients consist of the spiciest chilli from around the world and he himself could not even stomach it. He recommend us to try out the World's No2 Spiciest Pan Mee the next time... LOL. I think I'll just stick to the normal pan mee since I want to enjoy my food. The owner even joked that his bowl of spicy noodle is better than any facial since it improves blood circulation and gives your face a healthy rosy glow.

All the spiciness is drowned by the refreshing soya cincau (RM3.50). The total bill comes to RM26.50 and there's no Government and Service Tax.

In conclusion, I will return to Shi Fu Wan Tan restaurant when I'm at Cheras Leisure Mall. My wife wants to take the challenge again.

P.S. I forget to mention that I have stomach discomfort after having the spiciest pan mee. Guess my tummy just can't take it... hahaha.
