Tow Kee Hakka Mee & Sin Yee Kee Beef Noodles, Pasar Besar Seremban

*Not Halal

We made a stop at Seremban on the way to Melaka during our trip in August…. since we rarely make a trip there, we might as well stopby for a bowl of famous hakka mee!

P1510076-1

Pasar Besar Seremban, is where few famous food are located… the hakka mee, the beef noodles and also the sotong bee hoon soup… It is a 2 storey building… the ground and 1/2 of the 1st floor accommodates wet market stalls, and 1/2 part of the first floor is the food court. It’s a busy morning market…

P1510100-1This is the famous Seremban hakka mee stall.. in fact, they have another shop nearby, but I’m not sure if it’s still operating… I couldn’t find pasar besar in the GPS map somehow, but I managed to find Tow Kee Hakka Mee, so it brought us to the little shop lot near the police station (was it a police station or something) and it was closed! So, we decided to ask around on the pasar besar location…  so a few metres down the road before we could get out innocent passerby for directions, we saw Pasar Besar on the left hand side of the road! hahaha… so good thing the one here is open for business :D

P1510095-1

Hakka mee actually tastes a little like kolo mee or milder wan ton mee… the noodles texture is slightly different though… I heard it’s own made noodles too… very springy…

P1510096-1 A bowl cost at MYR 3.30 for small, MYR 3.70 for medium and MYR4.00 for large. It’s springy noodles, with minced meat, splashed with some light sauce and sesame oil, garnished with chopped spring onions and dashed with pepper powder..… the taste is not very intense, but somehow very pleasant indeed. A simple bowl of noodles, but tastes really good! Every bowl of hakka mee comes with a bowl of clear soup..

P1510097-1 Next is the also famous beef noodles… Stall no 748! they have a few variety of noodles, dry and soup version, but the boss recommended a dry one instead. Perhaps the soup ones are common…

P1510079-1

So here it is, my bowl of beef noodles with meat and beef stomach and parts, topped thick flavourful gravy, sesame seed sprinkles and spring onions. The noodles is also not some regular yellow noodles or wanton noodles.. it’s springy udon-like noodles.

P1510083-1The bowl costs.. urm.. was if MYR 4.00 or 5.00? Can’t remember..  comes with a bowl of soup… The noodles was okay.. this has a little sourish ( a bit like kai chai peng-chicken biscuit taste) and taste of various spices.. but perhaps I would prefer the soup one, milder version of it :D

P1510099-1 The food court is divided into 4 and this is one quarter of it.. You can order food from other quarter and they will send it over… You can see actually more older generations there.. having their morning coffee and breakfast with friends…

I say it’s worth going again, especially for the hakka mee… :D I’ll try the soup beef noodles next round too…
