Lou Shu Fun @ Restoran Yi Poh, Seremban

I got to know about this place when it was featured on Ho Chiak, a television programme covering various makan place around Malaysia.

The highlight of this place is their “lou shu fun”, which literally means “rat noodles”. The lou shu fun here is different from the usual. Instead of looking like rat’s tail, it’s “lai fun” (rice noodles) – the noodles people usually use for assam laksa.

On our way back from Port Dickson, we dropped by Yi Poh for lunch. It was packed when we got there. So much so, they forgot our order and the waiters didn’t bother to check on it when we asked them to do so. Luckily, one young boy (probably boss’s son) was kind enough to look into it and got our noodles in no time.


After mixing!

The smell of fried minced pork overwhelms the dish but the taste is quite light. It’s like eating hakka noodles with dark soy sauce.

Seremban Seafood Village @ Seremban 1

While having lunch with Adrian and A at Village Park, we decided to make a trip to Seremban for their famous roast crab for dinner. It was an impromptu plan.

We left KL around 645pm and reached Seremban in 50 minutes. Finding the place was rather easy. Check out the map below.

I initially though the place would be packed with people but there were plenty of seats.

Introducing the first meal!


Lai Liu Har. Tasty but not crispy enough.

Few minutes later, our main star of the night. Roasted crab!


Served with a faded green plate.

1kg of crab costs us RM40. It was covered with yummy marmite sauce.


And a spicy sourish sauce for us to dip our crab 😀

1 1/2kg was not enough for 3 for us. We ordered another KG. I was soooo full!!

After our cholesterol raising meal, we walked to a dessert shop nearby.

RM1.20 per bowl! Value maximum!!!

Tow Kee @ Seremban Market

Whenever I have to attend Court in Seremban, I would stop by Seremban Market for breakfast. There is one food court above the market. The food court is a treasure trove of Seremban delights!

Getting up to the food court is not pleasant sometimes as you have to go through the wet market. Sometime the stench of raw meat puts your appetite off. However, there are alternative routes to the food court. Some routes bypasses the wet market.


Some senior citizens scavenging for discarded vegetable. So poor thing 🙁

My personal favorites in the food court are the beef noodles, Hakka noodles and cuttlefish noodles. During my trip last week, I opted for Hakka noodles served at Tow Kee.

The name of this shop is identical to another shop serving hakka noodles as well. I wonder how they are related. Strangely, there is another shop by the name Sin Yee Kee which serves beef noodles and there is one stall by the name ‘Yee Kee’ which also serves beef noodles.

This time round I decided to have hakka noodles. I presume competition is stiff there as just as I walk towards the stall I had other stall owners rushing towards me to greet me.

The hakka noodles comes in a bowl of noodles with slippery texture and clear gravy. Its also sprinkled with some minced meat. The favour is in the noodles!

Yee Kee Seremban Beef Noodles @ Seremban 1

Few months ago, one Mr Ivan Lau emailed me informing me of his newly opened restaurant in Seremban and invited me to his new place by the name Yee Kee. According to him, they serve Seremban Beef Noodles, one of the famous dishes of Seremban.

Yee Kee is a new conceptual restaurant in Seremban. It’s the first of it’s kind in Seremban and since it’s opening, it really has been the talk of the town.

Yee Kee specializes in Seremban Beef Noodles. Yee Kee is the originator of this dish and it was started way back before the Japanese occupation. It is now operating under it’s 3rd generation.

Yee Kee is located in one of the pre-war shop houses of Seremban. It’s directly opposite Public Bank. Although it’s located in a pre-war shop house, the interior is nicely done with a tinge of modernity.


Moo Moo

We manage to meet Mr Ivan Lau himself. Mr Ivan used to be IT profession for 7 years before venturing into this business. According to him, his grand father started Yee Kee in the 1930s. However, the business ceased and Mr Ivan revived his grandfather’s business with his partners.


The Old Yee Kee Shop

Although we were full from our Hakka Noodles, we couldn’t resist to try Yee Kee’s speciality, the Seremban Beef Noodles.

I must say, the noodle was excellent. The sauce is sticky and the beef, zomg, tender and chewy. I would highly recommend this to everyone!

Other than its beef noodles, Yee Kee also offers boxes of beer jerky at RM6 per box. It comes with packet of sauces. According to Mr Ivan, it’s quite popular among his customers.


Mr Ivan and myself

Business must be quite good for him. According to Mr Ivan, his business is about to break even – at his 4th month!

For directions, please refer below:

If you’re coming from KL, go out Seremban tol. You’ll keep left to go to Seremban Town. Go all the way straight until the end of the road where you’ll be force to turn left.

Once you turn left, keep to your left. You’ll pass by Hong Leong Bank and then OCBC Bank.

Turn left after OCBC. Yee Kee is on your left hand side.

The restaurant is open 8am till 8pm daily except Monday which it will be close.

Tow Kee Hakka Noodles @ Seremban 1

In conjunction of the Deepavali holidays, the xes.cx makan team headed to Seremban, the capital of Negeri Sembilan for their unique dishes.

Other than Seremban Siew Pao, Seremban is also well known for their unique Hakka Noodles. Hakka noodle is made of flat noodles served with minced pork in a thick clear sauce.

Our first destination was Tow Kee Hakka Noodles. According to wikitravel.org, the said shop existed since 1930s.

The said coffeeshop is located along Jalan Lee Kim Chiap, directly opposite the Seremban post office. It’s a small shop with limited seating space. Their service was terrible – slow and unfriendly. We waited for almost 20 minutes for our noodles to arrive.

Nevertheless, their Hakka noodle was excellent. The texture of the noodles was soft but chewy. If you have time to spare in Seremban and is able to tolerate bad service, head down to Tow Kee Coffeeshop for their Hakka noodles. Alternatively, you may head to another Hakka Noodles stall at the Seremban Wet Market.

Sotong Mee Hoon (Cuttlefish Noodles) @ Seremban Market

Many thanks to Cheese for introducing this delicacy to me. I’ve been sick of Seremban’s beef noodles and Hakka noodles. Now with this new delicacy, I will have more will power to wake up early to travel to Seremban Court.

To Cheese: why does your noodles have more sotong than mine?!

The noodles come soupy, with pieces of fried beefpork and cuttlefish on top. The taste is quite unique. In fact, it’s quite good. And it’s only RM3!

The stall is located at the top floor of the Seremban wet market, at the section next to the section where the famous Sin Kee beef noodles stall is located (facing the post office)
