Lunch in Section 17

Sunday: Sunny

Dear diary,

Today I went for lunch in Section 17 from my office. I was having the urge to eat the 'siu yuk' (roast pork) in Hong Seng Restaurant which is opposite the CIMB Bank in the Section 17 market. I reached there at about 1 p.m. and the 'siu yuk' was already sold out :(

All that is left is a few pieces of siu yuk that another customer already booked. All I can do is take the pictures of the 'siu yuk' and look at it to calm my urge for this yummy 'siu yuk'.

No more siu yuk! Argh......

Because there's no more 'siu yuk', I'll have to go to Lucky Restaurant a shop lot away to find another good lunch to eat.

Do you know what's the best food in Lucky Seafood Restaurant Dear Diary?

Well it's wantan mee of course.

The wantan mee prepared by Hong Kee here is handmade. The texture of the mee is so 'Q'. The char siew might not be as good as Restoran Famous Seremban but it's good nevertheless. The cook say that to cook the mee until the texture is so 'Q' the timing of cooling and cooking the mee is very important. The sauce used for this dry wantan mee is just right not overly dry or overly wet. In less than 5 minutes, the whole plate of wantan mee has gone to my stomach.

Rating: 4/5

Lucky for me there's still some mee left, if I come half an hour later, I might have to go to Say Huat Restaurant to eat Thai Prawn Fried rice instead.

Dear Diary, some of my friends also had their own opinion about having lunch in Section 17. I'll put in their views here:

Hong Seng Roast Pork:

Dear Diary, from now on I'll remember to come before 12 p.m. to prevent another disappointment of not able to eat the 'siu yuk' in Hong Seng Restaurant. See you another day Dear Diary.

The wantan mee is nice but I prefer the wantan itself across from this place, Wah Cheong.
