We wanted the Curry laksa PM but that was out of stock liao, the waitress recommend the Herbal chicken PM, but I wasn’t too keen on that, so we settled for the traditional basic PM and also the knife cut PM,
The ‘sauces’ – roughly pounded pickled green chili, red chili/ sambal and chili powder
The basic PM was ok, with the usual ‘supporting’ ingredients – black fungus, sayur manis, ( the one with the roundish leaves), mushroom and ikan bilis, I am not a fan of pan mien as I don’t like the heavy flourly taste of the noodles, but the PM at Jojo is pretty good, the noodles were smooth and doesn’t taste too flourly. The soup was pretty sweet too, and do try the accompanying chili paste/ sambal
The knife cut PM didn’t have the usual black fungus and mushroom in PM – these were replaced by pork balls (they weren’t very round, so maybe i should call them pork lumps instead ? ), the pork balls were nicceeee…they were solid and springy with some chopped carrots and tinge of Chinese wine,. The noodles were in big pieces /sheets, for those that plan to impress your date, this is slightly tough to manipulate, you might not appear too elegant if you open your mouth too wide to swallow the ‘sheets’ whole, or attempt to bite the sheets into sections but found that the remaining piece had taken a dive and created quite a splash in your bowl…anyway, the texture of the noodles were nice and smooth. I enjoyed this very much.
Overall, a pretty good meal ! I search for reviews for Jojo and found that the Herbal chicken PM is said to be pretty good, and from our visit we found that they ran out of the curry laksa PM, this might be good as well guarrr…
