Seremban’s Yee Kee Beef Noodles

Seremban is famous for Seremban beef noodles with Yee Kee Beef Noodles being started in the 1930s by a Chinese immigrant from Hainan (albeit there is a chain in Taiwan controlled Kinmen off the coast of Xiamen with similar tasting beef noodles). I had a set (Myr13.9) for lunch on Friday and just noodles with tripe (Myr9) for lunch on Saturday: “It all started in the 1930’s when Mr. Poon Yee from Hainan Island’s Dai Dong Po village in China, set foot in Seremban. He brought with him a unique recipe for preparing beef noodles which incorporates scrumptious ingredients such as tender beef slices, beef jerky, beef tripe, pickle cabbage, sesame, peanuts and green onions and most importantly, its delicious thick beef gravy. He started selling the beef noodles in the old Seremban Market ( which had been demolished ) and the response what phenomenal. The locals liked the taste of the beef noodles and before long, his beef noodles were widely known in Seremban. Mr. Poon Yee named his stall Yee Kee, which roughly translates to “ Yee’s Restaurant “.
Seremban residents fondness for beef noodles remains strong and the name “ Yee Kee “ grew synonymous to beef noodles. Yee Kee Beef Noodles became a landmark of Seremban. After the war, the secret to preparing the beef noodles was passed on to his daughter. She opened a restaurant in Temiang over 30 years ago to a warm reception by the locals. Now, Yee Kee is into its 3rd generation.” ADDRESS:
