When I Googled about Famous Seremban Favourites, I was surprised to read so many positive reviews about about their Char Siew or BBQ pork. As far as I know, Seremban is always well known for their ‘Ngau Lam Mee’ or Beef Noodle. Hence, it was rather unexpected (at least for me) to realise that Char Siew is also one of Seremban’s signature delicacy.
Since it has garnered so many rave reviews, I thought it would be good idea to try out the food to see what the buzz is all about. A word of advise though. Since the place is extremely crowded during lunch hour, it is better to go early to avoid disappointment. At the same time, service was rather slow as their workers are busy attending to the huge number of customers. But as they say, good things will come to those who wait and true enough, our patience paid off handsomely when we were rewarded with a plate of lips smacking Char Siew.
Simply put, the Char Siew was heavenly! I always prefer eating the lean portion but the Char Siew at Famous Seremban Favourites has changed my preference. The fatty portion complimented the lean meat so well that it was an absolutely delight to taste.
Believe it or not, the fatty part was so soft that it can literally melt in the mouth.
I have never tasted Char Siew as good as this one. Ever since I had tried Ming Kee Char Siew a couple of months back, I was convinced that they serve the best Char Siew ever. But now, my votes go to Famous Seremban Favourites hands down. You haven’t tasted Char Siew until you had it here.
Here are some of the other pictures taken.
Besides Char Siew, we also ordered a plate of roast chicken (RM 6) which tasted quite okay. It wasn’t bad nor was it good enough to warrant a two thumbs up.
The Hakka Mee fares much better. I took the big portion (RM 4.80) which came with a generous amount of flat noodle.
There are many different version of Hakka Mee but the one at Famous Seremban Favourites comes without dark soya sauce. Although the plain looking meal may look unassuming, it certainly tasted nice.
If you are craving for ‘sinfully’ delicious plate of Char Siew and a bowl of Hakka Mee, this would definitely be the place to go.
