Our initial plan was to make short trip to Seremban to visit the then-newly opened Gong Cha. But somehow, suggestions flew all over and we decided to have dinner in Seremban as well before heading back to Kuala Lumpur… on the same day.

Kedai Makanan Seremban Seafood Village

When it comes to food in Seremban, it is famous for a couple of things such as beef noodles, hakka noodles and siew pau. But during the night, it is a different ball game where seafood is the thing to go for to fill one’s tummy.

Special Chili Sauce

There are plenty of restaurants in Seremban that serve seafood. With the sheer amount of customers flocking and dining during peak hours, you will get the idea which restaurants are good and which are a-okay.

However, this restaurant in particular needs no introduction at all due to its popularity. It has been in such state for years now. It was packed when we arrived at 630PM. We had to wait for 10 – 15 minutes before securing a table and another 10 minutes to get someone to take our order.

Signature Baked Crabs

A glance at surrounding tables and you will notice that almost every table there will be at least a plate filled with their signature dish; baked crabs (some called them grilled crabs). So, it’s no brainer that we had to order them to not lose out. The supposedly dark sauce was thick, somewhat sweet salt-ish with a hint of burnt aftertaste. The best part is that the shells were pummelled for easy picking/removal and perhaps easy absorption.

Pork Dish

Another favourite dish of the day was the salted egg yolk mantis prawn. Despite the batter was wee bit thick, they were really sinfully addictive. The pork dish was equally good; tender meat coated in sweet sauce.



The two types of greens were nothing to shout about. They were ordered to meet the ‘quota’, if you know what I mean. As for the fried vermicelli with clams, it was alright although they could do better with more clams.

Steamed Fish

I am not a big fan of fish and therefore, I can’t comment much of the steamed fish because I had none of it. I tasted the soup; it was just meh…

Tiger Beer

All in all, it was a good, satisfying meal. My apologies for not listing the breakdown price for each dish but the overall bill came up to around RM400 for 10 pax which include a pot of tea , 3 large bottles of beer and a can of soft drink. That works out to about RM40 per person which I think it is pretty affordable for meal like this, if you exclude the traveling expenses.

Of late, things got rather busy as I’ve embarked on a new yet treacherous journey to some unknown destination. Challenging it may sound, I guess it’s gonna be an exciting one… I hope. Each day seems to be like a never ending ones as piles of work are waiting to be finished (or solved) and yet I’ve no idea how to tackle them. And this pretty much took most of my time so much so that I’m starting to neglect a couple of things such as this space of my own.

Yes, I’m that busy that this blogpost was meant to be written and published a couple of weeks ago and yet I’ve failed to do so due to my work load until I stumbled upon old photos of them sitting idle in my hard disk that were waiting to see the daylight of this virtual world. Sad, isn’t it?

Anyway, as the title states, it is a rather a famous joint (they have a branch in Petaling Jaya too!) that is well known for seafood noodles. But what puts me off about this restaurant is that it charges at a rather premium rate for such a unassuming shoplot and the location of it which is in a bustling town of Segambut, a place I rarely visit. It is said that they have been in business for quite some time now, more than a decade ago, with its recipes have been passed down to newer generation that is running the show now.

That said, it is not often that you see a stall or a shop that filled its bowl of noodles with abundance of fresh seafoods unlike some which you can count with five fingers. Somehow or someway, this restaurant has been doing so consistently without skimping its ingredients throughout the years… which I think all restaurants and stalls should learn from them (Restoran Yu Ai).


With the option of either clear soup, curry or tom yam soup, each bowl is cooked separately upon ordering. Customers are able to select their type of seafoods too; namely mussels, clams, squids, cockles, sliced fish and prawns, that they want in their bowl of hearty goodness.

Seafood Curry Laksa

Me being me, I would usually go for curry noodles if I see fit (or appealing enough to make me salivate) as not often I get to have a good bowl of curry laksa except from the one I usually visit at Restoran Kam Fatt. Noodles are optional too with yellow noodles, rice vermicelli (mee hoon), flat noodles (kuey teow) and even instant noodles.

Seafood Curry Laksa

Taste wise, the curry broth was full of kick and spices in it. Thick and flavourful, the broth has the natural sweetness, probably imparted by the seafoods. Not often that I would praise a bowl of curry laksa but somehow, this certainly placed itself at above average mark. And as you can see, each part of the bowl is filled with seafoods of sorts.

Whether it is worth paying the premium price or not for its ingredient, it is up to you to decide. The last I paid was around RM15 (or was it RM17) for a regular bowl and it gets more expensive as the size increases. It is definitely not an every day or week meal, for me at least, but perhaps, it is a good option to consider if you’re running out of choices or when you feel like splurging more for a hawker-style food.
