... fried chicken, highly recommended by DL.

Rating: 5/10

Running out of stuff to eat, DL brought us to his regular hangout place. He said it’s a low cost dinner and the fried chicken was nice. To me, the fried chicken was fresh, freshly fried. Which also means that it was soaked in cooking oil and animal fats. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind of chicken that I like. I would still vouch for the ayam goreng sempalit at DoReMi.

... rice with egg, okra, lamb, fried squids.

Rating: 6.5/10

My sister brought me here for late lunch. She said the rice here is very nice, but I forgotten what it was called. The rice was cooked with chicken meats in it. The rice has nice aroma to it with slight hints of spice in it. The fried squids were horrible, while the muttons were acceptable. Fortunately, the curry sauce was quite good.

Unfortunately, the staff there was very pushy and keep putting stuff on my place, I had to order him to remove them, harshly.

Fried Chicken

... 1 of the best fried chicken in town, despite it was already cold.

Rating: 6.5/10

Though I still prefer my putu mayam with brown sugar and coconut flake combination, but this wasn’t too bad either. Mainly because the curry was quite nice, and the dhal was especially nice as well. The fried chicken was consistent to what I’ve had the last couple of times, though it was cold, most of the time. I have to spot the right time when the chicken was freshly fried. Then, according to AC, the chicken would be much nicer by a few hundred thousand folds.

The place was packed with crowds. The people keep coming and going, throughout lunch hours. MSF told us that they don’t use MSG in their food, hence the mildly flavoured gravies and stuff. The lamb was like quite normal, though the curry chicken was nice and tender. The fried chicken was disappointing. Fried fish egg was something new to me, though I don’t really like it. As for my favourite fried squids, it was pretty… tastely. Not salted at all.

The bill came up to RM80 for the 4 of us. Seems pretty steep for the amount of food served.

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.

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.

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.

This was one of the eating places that recommended by EL. His first remark was, “Those Indian guys can speak fluent Hokkien.” I find it rather amusing and got no idea what I was getting into, but I could only pray for the best. Some of them asked if it was spicy, but so far in my life, I’ve never had a mamak/Indian’s mee goreng which is spicy or very spicy.

The reddish appearance was quite surprising for all of us. I guess this only exclusively available in Penang. Taste wise, it was quite nice, a little bit sweetened. The chilli wasn’t spicy, but it tends to burn the mouth after consuming it. I guess it was like mee rebus, but the noodle was stir fried along with the gravy until the gravy was dried. In conclusion, something different than your usual stuff. Not sure if this is Halal or not, didn’t pay attention to any Halal certification on the stall or the shop.

My sister said the fried chickens here were nice, so we came here to pack some chickens back home for lunch. Seeing that the business was so good, I decided to have a pack of rice takeaway. The mixed gravy were quite nice too. At least once of them was sweet gravy, similar to Saji’s. The chickens weren’t crispy but the taste was good. Overall was nice if only there were more gravy as there were too much rice.
