In this week’s edition we check out one of Seremban’s well-known fishball noodles shops.
But before that, I would like to wish all StarMetro’s Christian readers a very Merry Christmas.
Okay, moving on, I must admit that I know very little about makan places in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
Some time back we featured a few stalls in Seremban that I was familiar with.
Recently, I took a road trip to Johor Baru with my boss Datuk Wong Sai Wan who showed me a few good makan places in Seremban that he frequented.
One of them is Lee Koon fishball noodles shop in Jalan Zaaba (GPS N 02 42 895, E 101 56 988).
“Eh Sam ah! This place is a well-known yue yeen fun (fishball noodles) shop. They were once at the Seremban market,” said Wong.
The shop, which is now managed by a second-generation noodle seller, is known for its loh shue fun (rat-tailed noodles).
So, without wasting time, Wong ordered two bowls of large noodles and two glasses of iced herbal tea.
A large bowl, with all the good stuff thrown in, costs RM7.50.
This is not cheap, but the good taste and generous portions made up for the price.
And if you love chilli sauce, you can either choose to have the home-made concoction or a sambal belacan sauce.
“Ha! You look at the chilli sauce! So much variety ah!”
Wong also told me the stall’s owner, who is in his retirement age, would serve customers on weekends.
“If you come on a Sunday morning, this shop will be packed,” he said.
“Some of the old school customers still prefer the old man who founded this shop to serve them. They say it gives them a nostalgic taste.”
I must say that after a short session at Lee Koon fishball noodles, I am convinced that I should make more excursions to Seremban.
My future plan is to pack my little folding bicycle, take a train down and explore Seremban’s Food Trail.
