Yau Char Kwai / Ham Chin Peng @ Jalan Dato Sheikh Ahmad, Seremban

Recently, we made a trip back to Seremban for yet another wedding dinner. While we were there, we looked forward to eating some really good food. Other than visiting our favorite haunts which I have blogged about previously, we made it a point to visit some other famous Seremban favourites to feature in our blog.

Two of our favorite late night snacks from Seremban are yau char kwai (Chinese crullers or dough fritters) and ham chin peng (fried dough with glutinous rice or red bean filling). There are a few other varieties but I have no idea what they're called as I usually just point to the ones that I want! This particular stall located on Jalan Dato Sheikh Ahmad in front of Farmasi PD, operates from 6.30pm onwards and churns out excellent yau char kwai and ham chin peng.

The stall is operated by a family team; the father cooks while the mother and daughter takes orders. There is often a long queue of people waiting to get their hands on some of these snacks. True that it is perhaps not one of the healthiest things to be eating, but an indulgence once in a while is acceptable.

On this ocassion, we only bought 3 ham chin peng with glutinous rice filling (I think they're also called "kap chung"). Each piece is priced at RM0.60. I love how its pillowy soft on the inside and that they are not stingy with the glutinous rice filling. Sinful.

The yau char kwai here are also good, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. We usually buy them as an accompaniment to porridge but we decided to skip them that night.

Opening times: 6.30pm - 11.00pm.

Price: RM0.60 per piece.

Location: Outside Farmasi PD / near Carlton Star Hotel, Jalan Dato Sheikh Ahmad, 70000 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.

  4. lovely, will try when at Seremban while visiting my in-laws.

  5. the "kap chung" looks very nice & has generous amount of glutinous rice. Is the yau char kwai nice? There's one very nice yau char kwai in Seremban 2, a coffee shop opposite Jusco named "Heng Heng Heng".

  6. I kinda like kap chung too and my place here have a stall selling mini versions of such fried goodies

  7. Michelle: I dont eat this in KL either, cos I dont know where I can get it in Cheras.
