Brunch at Seremban.

Seremban, the capital state of Negeri Sembilan is just 45 minutes drive away from KL.
‘What do you know about Seremban?’ If you ask me this question a year ago, I’ll answer you I know nothing except for the infamous Siew Pau and Siew Hai (Grilled Crab).
To me, states worth visiting in Malaysia will always be states like Penang, Ipoh, and Melaka.
These states are famous for food and the more popular a place is, the more happening it will be.
Which is why I ignored places like Seremban or Johor because to me these places are boring, with no activities for me.
I was wrong. Very wrong.

There are a lot more to explore and I shouldn’t be this ignorant.
In fact I’m pretty sick of places like Penang already, it’s time for something new.

Back to Seremban, all I know for now is that this place do have some really good food which most Malaysians do not know of.
How I get to know this if you wonder, it’s from Fatty because his hometown is in Seremban itself.

If you remember, I posted one of Seremban’s delicacies which is their Beef Noodles from her famous wet market.
Needless to say, I fell in love with it.
Then there was once where Fatty bought me a packet of noodles specially from Seremban which I have never heard of.
I was eagerly waiting while he reheated the noodles for me and I cant believe how good it tasted!
Ever since that day, I always asked him when do I get to go visit Seremban again for all the irresistable food.

And one fine day, he decided to bring me after much persuading.
We both woke up real early that day because if you’re late, there wont be much left for you.
You wouldn’t want to go back empty stomach, would you?

* On our way to Seremban. Haha! I’ve got no idea what is he trying to do with his palm.

* And then his fist!

We ate three different noodles that day.

* First destination, Kedai Kopi Yung Seng.

* It’s called ‘Ah Yi Lou Shu Fun” or ‘Ah Yi Noodles’ which too I have never heard of.

* This is how it looks like when the plate of ‘Ah Yi Noodles’ arrived at my table. What you see here is Seremban ‘Lou Shu Fun’ which is totally different from the normal ‘Lou Shu Fun’ we had in KL. Different in shape, look, and texture. ‘Ah Yi Lou Shu Fun’ has really thick gravy, served with shredded eggs, minced meat, and green onions.

* Before you savour this plate of Seremban ‘Lou Shu Fun’, you need to stir and mix the black sauce along with the thick gravy. This plate of noodle is extremely cheap, only for Rm3.
I don’t quite know how to describe this noodle, really. A very simple noodle that taste good enough to turn your meal into an enjoyable one.

* Second destination, Pasar Besar Seremban or also known as Seremban famous wet market.

* Hioong Kee Mee Hoon Sotong, which is the noodle Fatty bought for me or we called it as ‘Yau Yu Mai Fun’ in Chinese.

* Served with a rather watery gravy, fried vermicelli (fried mee hoon), sotong, pork, and vegetables for only Rm3.50 per bowl. What specialty does this bowl of vermicelli with a few slices of pork and sotong hold? Well, the vermicelli is fried beforehand so it emits a pleasant crisp-burnt smell while the meat is braised in a huge pot to perfect tenderness and sliced to excellent thickness. When everything combines together, it’s a bowl made in heaven.

For my own preference, I’ll always go for thick gravy instead of watery gravy.
So if you’re like me, who cant get enough of this ‘bowl made in heaven’ and also a person who loves thick gravy as much as I do, try this :
Take away a bowl of noodles home and while you reheat it in a pot, add in corn flour to thicken the gravy.
I prefer it being in thick gravy, anytime.

* Third destination, also located inside Pasar Besar Seremban which is Seremban’s infamous beef noodle.

* Seremban ‘Lou Shu Fun’ served with a thick gravy, peanuts, sesame seeds and mixed beef. Looking at this picture alone makes me salivate. Sometimes it is pretty torturous to do food post. Dayumn! Rm6 if I’m not wrong.
Here’s the post where I’ve talked about it earlier on.

Instead of going to Melaka for food trip, try going to Seremban for a change.
In fact, you can actually do both in a day. You’ll reach Seremban before you reach Melaka anyway.
There are more good food from Seremban that I have yet to try, but someday I will when the boyfriend is free enough.

Time to gather your friends? (:

One day at Malacca.

Call me slowpoke, it’s been almost a month since Ben left and now only I got around to post our Malacca one day trip.
Yes, I’m that lazy when it comes to editing pictures from trips.

The last time we went to Port Dickson, he wanted to let me try his hometown’s famous beef noodle but we were too late by the time we arrived.
So this time round, we tried our luck again.

* Famous beef noodle at Pasar Besar Seremban, can pretty much smell the aroma when I walked pass.

* So much more different from the beef noodle at KL. Both have their own distinguish flavour and I enjoyed eating both. What’s special about Seremban’s beef noodle is that they add peanut and sesame into it and their sauce is thick and special. The beef and the sauce just blends so well together. And the noodle we ordered is Seremban’s ‘lou shu fun’ which is also different from those we see at KL. Seremban’s ‘lou shu fun’ looks more like asam laksa’s noodle.
All in all, the combination is just great and it’s really tasty. I am so gonna eat this again. :9

We both shared a bowl for fear that our tummy will not be spacious enough for other Malacca’s food if we ordered a bowl for each of us.
And as usual, our first stop is Hoe Kee’s chicken rice.

*dayumnn, i’m missing all the foods!!

* fooled around at jonker street.

* i bought this boxing thingy, works quite well when i have a back pain.

* stopped by for eggy ice-cream.

* Rm3 sour plum flavour *refreshing* (I think the ice-cream on Ben’s tshirt is more interesting.)

We both wanted to go to Baba Nyonya museum so badly but I guess we wasted too much time at Jonker Walk, by the time we reached they’re already close. I was so sad, I wanted to go so so badly. ):

* Plan B, Cheng Ho’s museum which is pretty interesting. Didn’t know that he’s that powerful back then.

* And this museum is a lot larger than I thought, it feels like a maze inside.

After getting to know the great Cheng Ho we went to Stadhuys for a walk.

* Haha, my cute Romeo ♥ (:

Decided to look for my brother for dinner afterwards and we had a little argument before that. Ben wanted to take trishaw back to our car because we parked pretty far but I insisted that we should walk back because it’s expensive. What a stupid argument that almost ruined our day. Pfft, I cant help being stingy.

Fetched my brother and he suggested this beef bak kut teh.

* Actually it’s not a beef bak kut teh, just that they sell bak kut teh and beef in claypot but people called it beef bak kut teh. It’s pretty good, especially if you eat it in cold weather. But I doubt if Malacca will ever be cold.

Last stop is at Nadeje for their Mille Crepe which I’ve already blogged about.

* A very comfortable place.

* It’s insane we’re already so full yet we ordered Mille Crepe and my brother ordered Salad. Pricing is really reasonable for their ambiance and food which taste pretty good.
Accidentally saved my picture as low quality, hence this really low quality picture.

* And lastly some pictures from Ben’s iphone.

We’re running out of time because Ben’s leaving or else we’re gonna stay a night there. Too bad. ):
I wanna go to Melaka Wonderland so badly!! It’s like A’Famosa or Sunway Lagoon but much cheaper and lotsa slides!!

* Just look at the slides!! ohmaigawd!! I don’t care if it’s lousier than the both mentioned above cause I’m bored of them. And this is cheap!
Rm26 on weekdays and Rm30 on weekends.

I’m so gonna go!
