seremban food Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 26: Good Eats down in neighbouring Seremban town

Welcome to another edition of Scrumptious Saturday inspired by a short trip out of town for work. Last week saw me headed out to the neighbouring town of Seremban, just about 45 minutes away by car. Once we were done with whatever that we had to do, naturally, the next thing on the agenda was to suss out some good eats! icon biggrin Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 26: Good Eats down in neighbouring Seremban town

When in Seremban I like to go for their beef noodles. It is a local speciality that I can’t seem to find here in KL (of course if you know where to find good ones, please let me know!) I tried one locally that was passable but the prices were exorbitant so if I need a beef noodle fix these days, I head down to Seremban.

I was taken to a shop selling these noodles but I wasn’t satisfied. It just wasn’t the same. So once we’d waved goodbye to our local host, we immediately headed back into town to our favourite stall in the Seremban wet market.

This popular beef noodle stall no. 748 is located upstairs of the wet market. The problem for the faint hearted will be the heat and the “fragrant” smells of the wet market below. Downstairs are the fresh vegetables, meats and fish. Upstairs are food stalls. I do eat a lot of street food so I’m not too overwhelmed but I just have to warn those of you who may have a more delicate disposition.

Cooling down with a nice sweet and cold freshly pressed sugar cane drink is also a must!

And this is what I’m here for. Apologies for the not very appetizing looking photo. It does look a lot worse in real life LOL! The thick rice noodles are accompanied by boiled beef brisket, tripe and flavoured with crunchy fried peanuts, salted vegetable and toasted sesame seeds. A thick dark sauce made with beef stock is ladled over the noodles and you mix it up before slurping it all down.

There are many variations of this all over Seremban I’m told, and even in the market! I’m also told that there are some other stalls around town that are even tastier (without the market aroma) but I don’t know where they are. I am usually only visiting for a few hours whenever I’m down so I always head to the same place. If you live in Seremban and know of another must-visit beef noodle stall, please let me know where! icon biggrin Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 26: Good Eats down in neighbouring Seremban town

Another famous Seremban snack is the “siew pau” or baked bun. Its a small pastry filled with slightly sweet pork or chicken filling and baked to golden brown goodness. Its there on the right of the picture below.

The Seremban Siew Pau brand is probably one of the most famous, having lots of branches all over the country, but I find that they taste best from the original source, especially when they come out hot from the oven! There are other brands and as with these things, everyone has their favourites because tastebuds differ from person to person but if you are in Seremban, this is a local snack to have.

What are some good eats to have in Seremban? Do you enjoy these too?

As I said, I’m only usually down in Seremban for a couple of hours each time so these are the few things I go for to fulfill my Seremban food cravings. Naturally, if you know of others I should be eating instead, let me know! I’m always game to find something new icon biggrin Scrumptious Saturday Vol. 26: Good Eats down in neighbouring Seremban town

Sooooo good!!!


Lily April 20, 2013 at 11:45 am

I haven’t been to Seremban, but I love the siew pau. The branch is here in Ipoh, and that’s the only one I love :-)


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 10:53 pm

I think the Siew pau is Seremban’s most popular export! :) I see a stall or two everywhere!


Sandra April 20, 2013 at 12:09 pm

The Haji Sharriff’s cendol near the little india lane!
and an unknown hawker selling very smooth peanut soup (????) at night – I need to check the name of the road >___<


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 10:54 pm

Ahhh cendol! I’ll have to look this one up before I go down next! I’m rarely there at night, but who knows when knowing where to find a bowl of peanut soup will come in handy ;)


Angela April 20, 2013 at 2:47 pm

Oh No. I should already know that reading about food late at night is not a very smart idea.


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 10:56 pm

Haha I always make that mistake too! And then I go to bed feeling all empty in my tummy


Tammy April 21, 2013 at 1:29 am

Paris B April 22, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Street food is the best!!


ponikuta April 21, 2013 at 12:12 pm

My home town!!!!! Insert teary eyes.


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Aww… Next time you’re there, lets go eat! ;)


Jennifer April 21, 2013 at 9:46 pm

Oh such scrumptious food you have there! I have heard a lot about Seremban siew pau and oh glory, there’s the with salted egg yolk as well :) The beef noodle looks yummy! Tasty food may not look great but hey, it is the taste that matters after all!


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 11:17 pm

Ooh Jennifer if you haven’t tried a Siew Pau you have to! I’m sure there’ll be a stall somewhere near you selling it. They have franchises all over the country! The beef noodles are harder to find. I haven’t found any in KL which is a right bummer!


Ting April 22, 2013 at 12:37 pm

Siew pau is a MUST if anyone goes to Seremban. It’s like the saying roughly translated from Chinese, “you don’t call yourself a good man if you haven’t been to the Great Wall” (???????). So similarly, you haven’t been to Seremban if you haven’t tried the siew pau… hahahaha

The beef noodles… now it’s interesting. Your blog is not only informative for pretty girlie stuff, it’s also serves very well as a food guide. :D Thanks for the food hunting posts! xxx


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 11:41 pm

I love being a food guide!! :D and you’re right about the Siew Pau. I don’t normally eat it but the ones that come out of Seremban always taste so much better!


beetrice April 22, 2013 at 2:10 pm

I used to love King’s for their beef noodles and a glass of frothy Nestea – brought back memories of my childhood when we used to go there every week. Recently went back there, and though the food is still pretty decent, prices have hiked rather exorbitantly. :( The current de facto go-to is the Pasar Besar one – am salivating just looking at the pics!


Paris B April 22, 2013 at 11:46 pm

I was told to try Kings once but I never found the place! Lol I think I’ll stick to the market one. At least its easy to get to and I know its really good. Or maybe its the aroma adding to the flavour hehe


neegee May 12, 2013 at 3:24 pm

There’s one Restoran Asia at Rahang, Seremban that serves the bestest, yummiest, most delicious curry laksa ever!! They have another stall at Senawang if I’m not mistaken.


Paris B May 13, 2013 at 3:00 pm

Thanks for the rec! Will keep it in mind for the next trip down South :D
