Breakfast @ Restoran Yi Poh, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan

Last week, we made a day trip to Seremban to run some errands. When I was still living here, a place we would frequent for breakfast was Restoran Yi Poh located on Jalan Seng Meng Lee. The restaurant now is divided into an air-conditioned section and another section with fans only. It can get very packed during the weekends but on a weekday morning, it was pretty quiet. 

What they're famous for


Pickled green chillies (you can learn how to make this at home too)


Over here, you can get a few types of noodles - their famous "loh shu fun" (literally translated to rat tail noodles), wantan mee, Hakka mee, mix pork noodle and claypot yee mee. We also like their crispy fried wantans (RM0.50 each), do remember to request for fresh ones (ie just fried and still hot) as it does make a difference to the overall taste.



We always order at least a bowl of this loh shu fun, better known as Yi Poh noodles (RM3.80) which comes topped with minced pork and char siew. Mix it all together, and you got a bowl of delicious, slurp-worthy noodles. We like the flavorful minced pork, but the char siew is quite dry and lean.



The portion is quite big too! (This is a small portion)


Yum yum


I also like their wantan noodles (RM3.80), best eaten with the pickled green chillies. It comes with a bowl of soup with 2 wantans and 1 fried wantan (I remember they used to top the fried one on the noodles - it's a bad idea to put a fried wantan in the soup as it makes it soggy). Overall a good noodle dish, however the char siew (BBQ pork) is forgettable.



Wantan


The kids wanted some fish balls (RM0.50 each), they're okay to satisfy the kids craving but nothing to shout about (very obvious that it's not homemade).



Baby D happy that he got his fish balls!


Another dish that we love here is the pig's intestine soup (RM3.50 and above). We specifically requested for pig's stomach and tripe only when asked by the waiting staff but it came with the intestine as well. Fortunately the spare parts were all devoid of unpleasant smells. We love the peppery taste of the soup and I especially like the chewy texture of the stomach and tripe.  This is highly recommended.


Happy girl ;)

Verdict: A good breakfast option in Seremban, if you want a change from beef noodles or laksa or Hakka mee. 

Opening times: 7.30am to 6.00pm.

Price: RM21.90 for food.

  5. Saw this place when I stopped by Seremban. Did not go to eat there. Just went to the bakery across the road to buy some stuff - not really nice though, much better things here than there.

    1. I went to the hawker centre above the market - didn't think what I had was great either. Wish I had some one from Seremban to take me to eat the best in town... Disappointing stop there!

    2. We also visited the bakery after our breakfast. Everything we tried was freshly baked, we felt it was really nice!

      Haha next time u shd ask the Seremban peeps for some makan tips but then what we like might not suit your tastebuds also!

  7. "Lou shi fan" is something that i'm really missing for living in Sydney. I can't find it in most of the Malaysian restaurants here. When I go home, I want to eat "lou shi fan" & "yi mien" soup served in claypot! Yum yum!

  12. y'know, slowly but surely, i think i can see both baby c and d growing, with their features evolving. it dawned on me that baby d has lost some of his earlier 'baby/toddler' looks and is becoming more of a recognizable child, while baby c is turning into quite an elegant girl. both still very cute of course! :D

  14. Each time I visit my in-laws in S'ban, it was always ta-pau for us. Must ask my hubby about this restaurant. You can find loh shi fan at almost all hawker stalls in S'ban, that I noticed! My kids favourite are the Hakka Mee!

  16. Dear Baby Sumo,

    My Aussie friends think I'm joking when I tell them this is the kind of food people in Malaysia eat for brekky LOL! I love Malaysian style wonton mee but the char siew looks a little dry though.

  17. Hi Yen,

    I always have lots of feel good feelings reading your blog. The photo of yummy foods, your happy kids enjoying the food and plus this beautiful sunrise view of KL. Wish to visit Malaysia soon and can use all your blog as our food reference.
