DUBBED as Seremban’s best chicken rice shop, Choy Ki restaurant is a “must-eat” destination if you ever visit Negri Sembilan’s state capital.
There’s more than one way to get there and if you prefer to embark on a KTMB Komuter adventure, you can board the hourly electric train from KL Sentral to check out this makan place.
Better still, if you have a folding bicycle, you can cycle to Choy Ki which is located about 10-minutes away.
Okay, so, what is good at this makan place?
I was told by one of my bosses — Datuk Wong Sai Wan — that the chicken rice shop has one of the best loong char siew (charred roast pork) in town.
Apart from that, they have a special yee yeen thong (fishball soup) you can order as a side dish.
Choy Ki is located along Jalan Tuanku Antah (GPS N 02 42 945, E 101 56 744) which is south of the KTMB station in Seremban.
Highly recommended is the yin-yong kai fan (roasted and steamed chicken rice) and the supp char siew (roasted pork in sweet gravy).
And at RM25 for the wholesome experience, I would say that the pricing was quite decent.
The chicken rice tasted good, but my only dislike is the char siew with gravy because I found that the dried orange peel used in the mixture was just too strong.
This makan place is open for lunch daily, but I am not sure if they serve dinner.
To get there, you can either drive, take the efficient SKS bus service, board the KTMB Komuter train or better still, cycle from the Klang Valley to Seremban via the trunk road in Cheras through Kajang and Semenyih.
