I remember mid last year, I went to the Seremban Wet Market for breakfast, I was there just before 8.30am, went to stall 787, which is famous for its meehoon sotong. As I am about to order, the lady as me to hold and she starts allocating to the previous order and told me that they have just sold out (at 8.30am!).

This time, I reached the market at about 9.00am and thinking I am too late for the meehoon sotong again but hey, I am in luck! They are still serving! I am really in luck because just after they served me, I can see them cleaning and closing up before 9.30am!

Its basically meehoon deep fried, then topped with sotong (cuttlefish), braised pork and vegetables then covered with a thick starchy sauce (just like wan tan hor). Its quite nice, in fact, the pork tasted a little sweet and chewy like beef. It cost RM3.30 per plate and the topping are quite generous.

Do remember to check out their coffee here, very good and kau and also the all famous dried beef noodles from stall 748 ;).

At the junction of Jalan Abd Hamid and Jalan Temiang in Seremban, at the corner of the row of food stalls along Jalan Temiang, you will see a yellow banner stating “wood fried koay teow” in Chinese. I was introduced to this place by Micol as she told me that its quite popular among the locals. It was about 10 plus almost 11pm then, there is no long queue but you can see the owner is frying non stop still and waiting time is about 5 minutes, not too bad.

A plate of the fried koay teow cooked with hot flaming wood fire cost RM3.00 per plate. Its a bit oily at first look, taste wise is alright but what makes this koay teow really nice are the clams (si hum) and good old crispy fried pork lards. The clams are not too raw, neither overcooked, just right. The koay teow is not too strong in taste but the pork lards make it just nice.

I don’t think this koay teow is for everyone, but for those whom like old school cooking, oily and crispy pork lards type, then this is the koay teow for you ;).

We just had an exciting over night at PD and is heading back to KL but there is a need to drop of one of the kaki off in Seremban, so she took us to this neat place for lunch. Its in Seremban town itself next to the famous bbq crabs place.

Its just a small shop with zinc extension but its not too hot in the shop and tables are plenty. The stall inside sells frog legs porridge as well as steam “sang yu” (kind of freshwater fish). The porridge portion is big, a lot bigger than those in KL and the porridge is good too. As for the sang yu, its basically just fish meat without the bones steamed up with light soya sauce.

There is also a stall that sells claypot chicken rice and hot plate noodles in front and another one is selling another noodles, can’t remember what it is. At first, we thought the porridge portion will be small, since there are 6 of us and we only ordered for 5, so we ordered claypot chicken rice for 2 and we end up stuffing ourselves up but after a game of water polo, not too much of a problem for us 😛

The porridge for 5 with a steam fish cost RM59.00 in total, not too bad.
