Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites, Sunway Mas

(NON-HALAL)

UPDATED : FAMOUS SEREMBAN FAVOURITES HAS SHIFTED TWO DOORS AWAY FROM THE OLD PREMISES, STILL IN THE SAME ROW! HAPPY EATING :O)

Was told of a shop in Sunway Mas serving wonderful char siew (bbq meat) since last year but never got round to visiting the place till a few months back. Since my first visit then, I've become a regular at this place that serves heaven on a plate!
Famous <span class=
And this is the reason why I've been back here countless times. I'm trying to limit my visits here to once a month! Too much of something is bad, but too much of nothing is sad, so said The Spice Girls.
Char <span class=
The meat is tender and whether the cut is lean or not, they still lovingly fill the mouth with such a wonderful sensation. Be it the lean yet tender cuts or simply the not so lean cuts that melts in your mouth, this has dethroned my earlier char siew favourite located in Kuala Lumpur. A small portion cost RM5/USD1.50; cheaper than the one downtown in Kuala Lumpur.
Sweet "Char <span class=
The sweet caramel sauce is served separately. I like it that it's done this way. You can put as much or as little as you one, accordingly to your liking.
Hakka Noodles
There are several varieties of noodles there; I opted for Hakka Mee (RM3/USD0.90). Hakka Mee is the simplest looking noodles one can find with a colourless gravy; a plain Jane for some. But this plain Jane here has aplenty of good points. I love the texture of the broad noodles and the minced meat that came along with it. Add on some pickled green chillies and it's one good meal!
Rice
One can also have the rice. Though the rice carries only a slight hint of flavour, it's cooked nicely as each grain are complete and well separated.
Fish Ball
The fishball was nice and springy though I detect a bit of a fishy taste. I can't help it if I'm fish intolerant! LOL! I don't really like to eat fish, so you go and give this a try yourself.
Vermicelli with Cuttlefish
Spotting this on the menu, I recalled enjoying the Sotong Mee Hoon (Vermicelli with Cuttlefish) during my previous trip to Malacca where we had a stopover in Seremban for breakfast. So, we just had to order this. The noodles was quite bland as one of the crucial ingredients was missing. Sambal Belacan!

I had some deep fried dumplings here but didn't have my camera with me then. It was pretty tasty too. You can take a look at them from Tankiasu's review of this place HERE. Check out Lyrical Lemongrass's post on this place too (you can get the location map). Meanwhile, I'll be making my monthly visits to this place and try my best not to overeat my quota! ;o) See you there....

The Hakka Mee is like the Bak Chor Mee known in S'pore. I like it!

Not forgetting the char siew and that generous bowl of sauce/gravy which I always like to drench the rice with. Yummy!
