Unless you stay beside this pan mee stall, you will probably never know it existed. The only reason how I know about this stall is because I used to work with someone that actually stayed beside the stall. I've been coming to this stall for more than 15 years, in the same period, I have not found a spicy pan mee that comes close. This stall operates out of the owner's home and I don't even think they have a name for the stall. 800 is actually the name of the house the stall operates out of. When I started coming here, the stall was operated by an old lady and her son, over weekends helped out by her grand daughter who was about twelve then. Today, the grand daughter runs the show, she does the cooking and all. The base pan mee is basic, just noodles and soup. You have the option to add fuchok (bean curd skin), prawns, fishballs, pork, eggs etc. I normally go with egg, prawns and fuchok. There's a few ways you can eat this, my partner prefers to not to mix the chili paste with the broth. I'm a person that likes getting punished, I'll mix the chili paste in the broth and have more chili with every mouth. That's the recipe for a fiery butt hole, I'll deal with the butt whooping consequences the following day. You have been warned. Nothing beats having some lime juice and asam drink to go with spicy soup pan mee, it helps amplify the arse destruction process. Pro tip: get the owner to make the drink, anyone else that makes it, it will be too diluted. The lime juice comes in a glass normally, but true to Malaysian style, I take mine in a packet tied with a raffia string. The logic behind this is, you pack more ice, making the drink colder.
