What to Eat in Seremban?

Oh, how we love local markets – a place where all the good food awaits! Make a stop at Pasar Besar Seremban for your food hunt and you’ll be rewarded with these local favorites:

1.1 Mee hoon sotong (stall 787 & 753)

  • Stall 787
  • Stall 753

This is a dish that’s not commonly found elsewhere in Malaysia. Check out stalls no. 787 and 753 for fried mee hoon coated in gravy and topped with slices of fresh sotong and braised pork.

1.2 Beef noodles (stall 241)

Stall 241 offers both dry and soup beef noodles. The dry version comes in gooey, dark gravy and loaded with beef brisket, preserved vegetables as well as roasted peanuts for extra crunch. Made fresh daily and simmered in beef bone for hours, we enjoyed the flavorful soupy version too.

1.3 Lai fun (stall 181)

Topped with only minced meat and spring onions, a bowl of lai fun noodles at stall 181 may look simple, but it’s addictively good! We especially enjoyed the springy texture of the noodles.

1.4 Tow Kee hakka mee (stall 178)

Similar to stall 181, Tow Kee’s hakka mee is served with a spoonful of minced meat and sprinkled with spring onions – but in Hakka style.

2. Onn Kee Satay 安记猪肉沙爹

Onn Kee is the only stall in Seremban that offers pork satay. All sticks are well marinated for up to 4 hours, then skewered and grilled on charcoal to perfection. The smokiness of their satay blends well with the sweetness of their handmade peanut sauce.

📍 143, Jalan Quek Kai Dong, Taman Unian, 70200 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan
7pm –  12am
☎️ 019 660 5963

3. Haji Shariff Cendol (halal)

📍 44, Jalan Yam Tuan, Bandar Seremban, 70000 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan
10:30am –  6pm; closed on Friday
☎️019 382 8505

4. Kedai Siew Pau Asia 亚洲烧包

While Kee Mei is the go-to siew pau for most visitors in Seremban, most locals usually prefer Siew Pau Asia. You can get crunchy pieces of siew pau here with generous char siew stuffing. If pork is not your thing, they sell chicken siew pau too. Eat them fresh on the spot for the best taste!

📍 368, Jalan Seng Meng Lee, Taman Unian, 70200 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan

5. Restoran Sin Yit Sing 芙蓉新日升餐馆

Ask any local where you can get the best Chinese food in Seremban and they will most probably direct you to Sin Yit Sing. Ordering marmite crabs, claypot fish soup and coconut soup is a must here. The refreshingly sweet taste of the claypot fish soup was definitely a winner for us.

📍 103, Jalan Labu Lama, Taman Ast, 70200 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan
3:30pm –  10:30pm; closed on Wednesday
☎️012 602 0122

6. Quinn (Seremban Beef Noodles)

Quinn is perhaps one of the most famous beef noodle places in Seremban. Each bowl of their noodles is served with a handful of tender beef slices that’s either coated with thick black sauce, or flavorful broth. We highly recommend their dry beef noodles due to the unique, dark beefy sauce.

📍 108, Jalan Toman 6, Kemayan Square, 70200 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan
10:30am –  5pm; closed on Tuesday
☎️012 269 9836

7. Restoran Yi Poh 姨婆老鼠粉

Restoran Yi Poh is best known for its dry loh shu fen (silver needle noodles). The toppings of minced pork, char siew, and an egg with a perfectly runny yolk pair well with the al dante noodles. However, some long-time customers have pointed out that the taste of Yi Poh has dropped drastically compared to the olden days.
