Ho Chiak! moment at Pasar Besar Seremban, Negeri Sembilan


On last Labour Day, me and my housemate decided to go to Seremban, Negeri Sembilan for a food hunting mission. Most of flogger (food blogger) always shared about the Chinese foods available in Pasar Besar Seremban or literary as "Seremban big wet market". Now, it is our turn to share about our experience in Pasar Besar Seremban. 

We depart from Kuala Lumpur around 7.00am by KTM Commuter and arrived to Seremban after 1 hour and 10 minutes and the ticket cost is RM6.00/ticket/journey. As we are freaking hungry, we took a cab from the Seremban train station to Pasar Besar Seremban which cost us RM5.00/journey. 

When we arrive to the market, its truly a chaos scene with hundreds of people, fruits, veggies and other stuffs. We directly go to the 2nd floor of the market and nah! a very 1980s Chinese eatery scene is just in front of your eyes. 


First, we ordered Mee Hoon Sotong, or literary called as Vermicelli with Squid from stall no.787. It came out in soup version with slices of meat, and squid with chilly dipping on the side, in case you love it spicy.


Secondly, we ordered our core highlight of the day, the famous beef noodle from stall no.742. I used to eat various version of beef noodle in Vietnam and the last time was at Ngau Kee Famous Beef Noodle at Tengkat Tung Shin, Kuala Lumpur. But this noodle was truly different. My portion of beef noodles consisted slices of beef, peanut, soy sauce and a specially mixture of sauce. Taste wise, I love it because it is not spicy.  The price perhaps a bit pricey at RM7.00 for big size, but I'll definitely come again for this beef noodle. 




Finally, we need to decide for our last food. It was kind of difficult to decide to have either Rojak or Laksa. But anyhow, the selection of fish balls, tofu and noodle at no.788 Laksa stall look so tempting which finally we ordered a big bowl of Laksa. Its quiet spicy, and as a Johorean, I was confused if it is a Laksa or Mee Curry when the taste is almost the same. It still tasty and RM3.70 is a good price for those who are looking for a spicy and tasty breakfast.  



Ka-Ching!!! We spent RM15.00 for 3 big portions of noodles and 1 cup of coffee.

1 Hot Coffee : RM1.10
1 Mee Hoon Sotong : RM3.50
1 Big Beef Noodle: RM7.00
1 Laksa: RM3.70



If you still feel hungry, there are many other foods options here in this market. Mixed rice, local cakes "kuih", fried noodles is available for you to choose. Optionally halal Malay is available at another corner.
