Rushed to Seremban early this morning for some breakfast in the wet market. According to AT’s eating magazine, there were some nice food stalls there worth trying.
... gotta have a black coffee to boost my day, starting so early in the morning.
... this was 1 of the items introduced in the eating magazine, vermicelli with squids.
This vermicelli was quite different from what I usually have. Instead of clear soup, I was served with a brownish soup, which was quite salty in its nature. Then there were some cuttlefish strips and best of all, those sliced porks. The vermicelli itself was not very well prepared. It has the smell of raw vermicelli, which I don’t like. The sliced porks were very nice marinated. I guess I could just eat that all day long. Should have been called the marinated pork vermicelli instead.
... the specialty of the stall was dried beef noodle, instead of the soup one though.
AT went to order a bowl of beef noodle. She mistakenly ordered the soup noodle, instead of the dried one, which was recommended by the magazine. I had a few sips of the soup, which was very plain and watery, unlike any beef noodle’s soup I’ve had. I heard the noodle was home made too. I supposed that was to attracts more people to try it out with the notion that it was healthier? Anyway, I give it a zero because a bowl of beef noodle from Teppanyaki would’ve tasted much better. Perhaps it was her trick of leaving something behind, so we could have something to yearn for on our next visit.
... it contains pork in it and special concoction of gravy.
I was quite tempted by the rojak’s photos in the magazine. AT said it was just a few stalls away from the stall selling vermicelli. Despite feeling a little full already, I went ahead to try it out. How often would I be visiting the wet market so early in the morning, let alone the one in Seremban’s? I was glad I did went ahead and be a glutton. This rojak (pasembur) was unlike any of those that I find in KV. It was served with pork (not the meat) in it and has five-spice powder in it, which made the gravy so special. Though it was quite spicy by comparison. Something worth a second try or takeaway.
... after those, we went around the stalls to go for Tow Kee's Hakka Mee.
I’m not a big fan of Hakka Mee, but since it was highly recommended, we went ahead and gave it a try. Initial impression was, it was very salty. I felt a slight tingling on my tongue. I was guessing it was due to the used of alkaline in the preparation of the noodle or it has way too much salty. Somehow EL and AT can’t feel that, but they loved the soup on the beef noodle though. My comment for this noodle? It was nothing extraordinary as I could get similar stuff in Glenmarie.
That’s about wrap it up for our breakfast in Seremban. A day which I woke up so early and I still can’t believe it myself.
PS: will update the stall numbers when I got them from EL or AT.
