The 3 of us, KC, DL and me were going to Malacca for some photo shooting. It was KC’s idea because he was so enthusiastic about his new camera. I agreed to it providing that they allow me to hunt for the cendol that I wanted. So it was a go. While on the way there, we are going to pass by Seremban, so I suggested that we would have the infamous silver needle noodle (老鼠粉).
No wonder DL asked for a non BBQ pork bowl of noodle because it sucked. The fried pork lards were nice but a tad too soft. Though when eating together with the noodle, the fragrance or taste of the pork lard doesn’t surface as much as it should. So perhaps you’d want 3 piece of it in 1 spoonful of noodle. The chili condiment was sweet, not exactly my kind of chili, but it was really spicy, no doubts about it. Fried wanton was quite nice. The best would be the pepper soup. I wasn’t a big fan of pepper soup, but I was told by DL that the complimentary soup that comes along with the noodle was of the same pepper soup with pork guts. I mixed in the chili paste and lots of lots of pepper (I overshot actually) in it. The taste came out just like the soup from my favourite noodle stall back in my hometown. I keep telling DL that the soup tasted like my hometown. I called it hometown-feel soup. He kept laughing like a Joker. My cup of kopi-o was really nice, sweet enough. The only thing lacking was Chinese crullers. I’m always looking for Chinese crullers when there’s kopi-o for me. Unfortunately, 2nd cup of kopi-o was less sweet though.
