PG’s cravings for fish noodle still remains, hence today he suggested to try the one in Salak South. The size of the noodle was huge, and first impression was that there were plenty of fish pieces on the bowl. Though the taste was mediocre, unfortunately the fish meat has quite heavy muddy taste. Aside from that, there were way too many bones in it.

... this fruits rojak was quite delicious. A rarity in Klang Valley.

Fortunately, our dessert was quite good. I’ve never had such good tasting fruits rojak for a while, especially in KV area. The paste was not as thick as usual, but it has the kind of deep taste which can’t be found from most fruits rojak. I would want to have this again, but unfortunately it’s just too far from my place.

PG told me that he has been craving for fish head noodles lately. I do not know why was that. My only guess was probably because he hasn’t been having “women” for quite some time. I guess having fish head noodle is healthier than the other type of meat. So today he planned to bring me to OUG for a fish head noodle, which he spotted some time ago. Unfortunately, when we were there at the market place, the stall was not opened, hence we had to adjourn to somewhere else. We went to the Win Soon shop in Kuchai Lama. He said this place wasn’t bad either, just a bit costly.

This was probably the best tasting fish head noodle I’ve ever had. Not that I had a lot of fish head noodle in my life, nor do I fancy it. But the soup just taste good, and the fried fish cutlets were good too. Aside from the higher price tag, which I don’t really mind much, this was a good place to visit, once in a while. Besides, the location was quite far from my reach, which might hinder my frequency of visits.

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.

Went for a quick dinner nearby the place we stay. Yet again, I’m at the Fishing Village seafood restaurant for the second time.

This time, the salted egg yolk prawns weren’t that good, despite I was comparing to the one I had the first time, which was already cold and slightly sweetened. The fish was acceptable with the soup right on spot. Fortunately, the soup wasn’t as devastating as the one we had in Yan Yan A One‘s. Then my favourite black pepper fried squids. This time, the squids was not fully deep fried, it was a tad less crunchy than those I had last time. Finally, the tom yam vermicelli was acceptable, but it was a bit sweet though which I find it rather odd.

The siam style vermicelli was nice, though I preferred it when they shredded the curry leaves, which made the whole thing smell and tasted much nicer. The kam heong mantis prawns were a big disappointment. It was now dipped in batter and deep fried, unlike last time where it was fried without batter, which retains most of the taste and texture of the mantis prawns. Now, I could only taste the crunchy stuff. I might as well just buy some banana fritters if I wanted something crunchy.
