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.
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!
