"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Restoran Win Yin 容原宮保田雞粥

This is the place where my cousin has always been wanting to bring me to. She claims that the frog porridge here is better than the one I brought her to.

We ordered the frogs in “gong bao” flavour, sliced fish in spring onion and ginger, stir fried lala, peanuts and preserved vegetables, together with 5 servings of porridge. Each frog is RM7.50 and the whole meal cost RM$66.50.

I felt the frogs weren’t as flavourful as that I had here. But the sliced fish were not bad. The lala was not bad too.

Frogs, sliced fish and porridge

The only bad part is we were really thirsty after our dinner. Probably too much MSG in the food.

Restoran Yong Tao Fu Sam

My favorite niang tou fu stall in Seremban.

Each item is 90 cents. Niang toufu items are always filled fully with marinated meat. The meat is usually mixed and made by the stall themselves unlike the homogeneous white tasteless meat bought from some wholesalers in Singapore. Items are so chunky, you feel like you are eating every cent of your money’s worth.

You can order it with “lai fan”, bee hoon, kuay tiao, yellow mee or rice. It comes with fragrant dark soy sauce and minced meat.

After selecting the items, the stall will heat up either by cooking in the soup or deep-frying the items again.

The Coastal Settlement

Visited this lovely place decorated with retro items – old typewriters, phones, bicycles, thermos flask, kettles, hair dryer, rattan chairs, luggage bags, etc. The big restaurant had many customers despite being a weekday night and location being out of the way.

They have big tables and is a very suitable place for gathering of friends.

I ordered the perfect roast chicken that comes with broiled vegetables and truffled fries. If you order soup, it comes served in mess tins or the retro light green metal container. It reminded me of the older days when I was still a little kid eating at my grandma’s house.

The rest of the pictures are what my friends had.

U Crab Wang Restaurant 柔蟹皇海鲜饭店

Had supper at this place yesterday at Seremban. We ordered 3 crabs cooked in 2 flavours – mushroom and chilli (辣子). We were quite apprehensive about the mushroom one at first but since the waitress said it is one of their most popular flavour, we decided to give it a try.

We couldn’t really tell how they made the mushroom gravy, but guessed they probably used Campbell’s canned soup and added onions, garlic and cheese. It was quite flavourful.

The chilli one was not bad either, with curry leaves, dried shrimps, garlic and chilli. I felt it was not spicy enough.

The crab was meaty but had a slight tinge of muddy taste. Price – RM$63 per kg.

The restaurant offers 28 types of flavours of crab. Besides this, they also have a “zi char” menu.

Note: Mosquitos are abundant at night. Spray insect repellent first if you are eating supper.

One authentic Korean BBQ restaurant you can visit! I love their kimchi stew!

Every customer is served a complimentary pumpkin porridge as an appetizer and a red bean dessert and hot tea at the end. The banchan is complimentary and is very fresh. However the kimchi that they served is not the best I’ve eaten.

Would definitely come back for their BBQ!
