Ever since the relaxation of movement controlled thanks to Covid-19, I’ve been slowly getting back to doing a bit of hiking over the weekends. A couple weeks ago that brought us to one of the destinations that is new to me – Gunung Datuk in Rembau. It was a 5.25 km round trip hike with 630+ meter total elevation that took some 3 hours, a nice, satisfying medium effort hike.
And what do you do after a good hike? Brunch of course!
beef noodle at pasar besar Seremban – stall #241A 新儒记
Since we were in Negeri Sembilan, it was natural to get something that is uncommon in Klang Valley – a proper bowl of Seremban’s famous beef noodle.
For this, we headed to Pasar Besar Seremban, the biggest wet market in the state.
The hawker center at the market is situated on the first floor, and you’d be greeted by a plethora of choices – but if you want the most “famous” of them all, head to stall number 241A (新儒记) for their famous beef noodle.
There are several choices on the “menu” to choose from, we settled on standard mixed beef noodle for the most part, but you can also order with just beef without the “mixed” bits, which are those delicious offal. Expect a 15-30 minutes wait on weekends.
starchy, sticky, and absolutely delightful
The Seremban beef noodle is quite a unique dish in itself, with very little in common from the type that you often get in Klang Valley, such as those from the likes of Lai Foong or Yung Kee. or Shin Kee. While the others are soupy and serves with yellow/wantan noodle, or even meehun, Seremban’s version comes with “lai fun”, which is also referred to as their version of loushe fun.
The starchy sauce is rather flavorful, with beef & innards cooked to a soft and tender texture, a hallmark of any decent beef dish, there’s also a side of soup to wash it all down. I also like the chili sauce that it came with, not overly spicy and carries some acidity from vinegar to provide a good contrast.
Jodie, Desmond, and Jean, good meal is a must after hiking
At RM 8 to 9 per bowl, this was a very satisfying brunch, will perhaps try other offerings in Seremban next, though I wouldn’t mind repeating this very same stall at all.

Went there to eat…once. Did not tickle my fancy.
suituapui:Guess we have different tastes!
Heheh, it’s a prerequisite to take a photo of your own bowl of noodles before eating…lol! 😀 I actually prefer lai fun for my beef noodles.
eatwhateatwhere: oOo lai fun is memang appropriate for this occasion!
after a three-hour hike, i’d need five bowls of this! 😀
Sean: and you deserve it! haha.
Since I don’t like starchy food, so it’s not surprise that I prefer the soupy version of beef noodles.
Choi Yen: well, worth a try tho!
Going to eat in Seremban after almost 4 hours up and down a mountain about 25km away??
I think thats a ridiculous suggestion. You’ll be half dead after tht mountain hike.
Rozali: and that’s exactly why we do it! hahaha.
