Chilli Pan Mee Pasta

Got a craving for pan mee but looking to cook it with a mod-sin twist? Then this recipe will be a good fit for you.
We used San Remo tagliatelle pasta to emulate the pan mee texture, and it works really well for this dish. The chilli paste is key in this dish, a heavenly blend of dried shrimps, garlic, chillies, belacan and shallots… combined with the anchovies it simply brings out great flavours.
Once the pasta is ready, top it up with generous servings of chilli paste, anchovies, poached eggs, and spring onion and you’ll have yourself a hearty pasta!
