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 ;).

A bowl of the hakka noodles start at RM3.50 for small, RM4.00 for medium and RM4.50 for big. For a guy, I think the medium one is just right. Its basically hakka noodles top with minced pork, just like the original style when you eat in Seremban.

Their bbq pork here is very good, if you order the half fat, half meat part, its almost like it melts in your mouth but not cheap, RM10.00 for a medium plate which is meant for 2 persons. But of course now that times are bad with increase in fuel and almost everything else, 4 persons sharing 1 medium is a very good idea :P.

I find the bbq pork very nice and the noodles are not bad but price wise, its ok ok only. Maybe a once in a while thing for me ;).

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 ;).
