Wood-Fired Fried Noodles, Seremban

Final instalment to Idle driving: Semenyih, Broga and beyond ..

After whizzing around the quiet road for almost an hour, uphill downhill fully tarred semi tarred, we reached civilisation. Night enveloped and tummies buzzed. The hunt for dinner began.

Round and round we burn precious petrol until the driver spotted this by a busy roadside.
We promptly dumped the car in a dark alley and ordered this.No cockles. No shrimps. No chives. No chinese sausage. Just good old lard, dark sauce and great ‘wok-hei’ (heat from hot seasoned pan).

It took sometime for the plates of sin to be served so we had these as appetisers:-

Herbal drinks from this stall.

Lardy Popiah (Chinese crepe rolls?). These big rolls are good. Bits of Chinese Sausage (lap-cheong) were mixed in with the soaked turnip strips which really enhanced the flavour. A bit pricey though at RM1.40 per piece but worth it.

A variety of Kuih. Sadly I am terrible with the names. Help, anyone?

Price per plate of artery clogging fried noodles: RM4.00

Location: We were quite lost when we found this so only direction I can give is err a quite dilapidated foodcourt opposite this temple. = (

Nevertheless the driver of that night is sure if we get lost in Seremban again, he’ll be able to find this place again. Yes, definitely a scratch head issue. If it happens, the location will be updated. *cross all limbs*

10pm odd. Time to set for home. But wait. In Seremban what must one buy?

It was late and only this place is still open and looked promising. A loud EMPAYAR Seremban Siew Pow.

We were not in luck. Their famous Seremban Siew Pows just finished and the following batch will only be ready in 20 minutes. We were too tired to wait so we went off empty-handed.

By the way, noted that the seafood restaurant upfront looked promising.
Anyone tried?

cumi&ciki, sure sad? Feel it's more of a relief for most. :)

selba, it's in sexy oily black. Attractive, no? =)
For a simple dish, it was good.

worldwindows said...

CKT with tons of thick black sauce! I am getting used to it with the ocassional plate. Very southern I guess. KL is lighter and Ipoh is lighter still.

Tummythoz said...

worldwindows, think this was more of a CKT+Hokkien mee version. So true that it gets darker as we go south until JB. Crossover to S'pore & the sinful sauce disappears.

It located at Jalan Temiang which is one of the junctions for Jalan Tun Dr. Ismail (Seremban –Mantin) or near Seremban wet market.
