Famous Seremban Favorites

I woke up yesterday to find WMW's SMS. "Meeting up with Jason and friend for Famous Seremban Char Siew". My sis was away for a conference, my parent went over to the new house, I didn't have anything planned or to eat. And it's POK! Of course I went.

I had to meet up with WMW at Kayu because I was still a 'virgin' to Famous Seremban Favorites. Tak tau jalan ma. The road got a little confusing because of the one way street.

Anyway, the friend that WMW mentioned was actually j2kfm aka Motormouth from Ipoh! Nice to have met you =)

When I saw this... *drools* my mouth watered. I started taking pictures and then out of no where, Sunny and Sid from Big Boys Oven pop up!

I got really excited because when food bloggers come to the same place, that can only mean the food is good.

This small plate of char siew (BBQ lean pork) was absolutely worth the RM5. (Medium RM10, Big RM15) The pork was fully caramelized on the outside, a little crispy. On the inside, tender and juicy. And the fatty part, absolutely delicious.

We all ordered the extra black and the edge of the char siew. Kind of bad for health to ask for the black and burnt part, but we are already eating the fatty part which was unhealthy, Eat First Think Later.

I didn't manage to finish my small plate of Wan Tan Mee (S RM3.80, M RM4.30, B RM4.80) because I was too busy enjoying my char siew. There wasn't anything bad about the noodles, or anything exceptionally good. I just wanted to save stomach space for the pok ;p

Jason's and j2kfm's Hakka Mee (S RM3.30, M RM3.80 RM4.20) looked good too. Wanted to order this initially, but didn't know what this is called. I am sure I will be back for more char siew, and next time, I'll have this.

WMW come here so often that the owner, Bill, reconises her. We had two plates of this Fried Sui Kau (S RM4, B RM8) on the house. Good stuff. This fried Sui Kau can actually compete in terms of taste with my favorite fried Sui Kau Yong Tau Foo in Restaurant O&S. Crispy and dry on the outside, not drenched in oil. And the stuffing tasted really nice.

A bowl Wan Tan (S RM4, B RM8) and a plate of Pork Belly Char Siew was also generously put on our table for our taste buds and stomach. The Wan Tan tasted normal.

This stuff, is the real stuff. BBQ Caramelized 'Pun Fei Sau' Pork Belly. 'Pun Fei Sau' = One part lean, one part fat. The meat portion was tender, the fat portion just melts in the mouth, the caramelized outer layer leaves the sweet porky taste in the tongue and palate.

So sorry Simon that you missed this pok session. You missed out a lot! ;p~
