Delicious Maggi Goreng Simple Recipe That You Can Recreate At Home

Most Penangites will smile when you ask them what they secretly eat for a late supper – a Maggi Goreng Simple Recipe that you can recreate at home!

Everyone loves a plate of spicy Maggi Goreng (fried Maggi Mee) with a fried egg. It’s that go-to comfort food that you indulge in when you’re a student.

  • You can have it when you have no idea what to eat for the night.
  • It’s football night, and you’re too lazy to go out.
  • Month-end, and you are broke.

You can have an instant soupy noodle, but when it’s cooked Maggi Goreng style, that’s when it becomes irresistible.

I know I find it irresistible when I go to a Mamak joint, and I see others savoring a plate or two or more of that delectable Maggi Goreng.

For Malaysians, even though some tell us to eat fewer carbs at night and less salty and spicy, greasy food. We know all that.

What is Maggi Goreng?

A Maggi Goreng experience is like eating economy fried bi hun (vermicelli) at the morning market.

You get a nice full feeling that is homey and comforting.

However, when the craving kicks in, here’s a list of late-night and all-night stalls you can head to for your fix.

Mohamad Raffee

This is where I went to when I used to pull all-nighters in my office in Pulau Tikus. The regulars (like me) know when the queues start and we like to go there before and after popular hours!

So if you want to see the queue photos, or pots brimming with curry, I have none to show.

We love the Nasi Kandar and the Ayam Goreng. Best served hot, juicy chicken thighs! The Maggi Goreng has a tomatoey flavor, moist and sticky, gooey eggy texture on the noodles.

I prefer noodles to be a firmer and springy texture.

This is a local joint that regulars like me will hangout and annoyingly wrong order “Ais Limau Panas” because of lack of sleep.

Restoran Mohammed Raffee Nasi Kandar
No. 295, Jalan Burma, Pulau Tikus, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Opens 24 Hours Daily
Phone: 04-228 8466

Restoran Yunus Khan (Jiao Sai) 鸟粪

When I first drop by the outlet I was surprised that it’s called Jiao Sai. In Chinese, it means “bird poop.”

I asked the shop operator, and he said the original stall was under a tree, which explained the moniker “Jiao Sai” for Restoran Yunus Khan.

There are claims that this Maggi Goreng is ordinary. However, the zesty Maggi Goreng comes in 2 variants – Original and Tom Yum.

The Original is Goreng Maggi Kari (Curry Flavour).

Even though the appearance may be unappealing, Maggi Curry or Tom Yum Flavor’s taste with the diced fried chicken and the runny yolk is appealing.

Other Maggi Goreng stalls serve the entire piece of chicken aside from the noodles.

Restoran Yunus Khan (Jiao Sai) 鸟粪 (Behind Red Rock Hotel),
Abu Siti Lane, 10400 George Town, Penang
Business Hours: 5 PM-Midnight (Opens Daily) | Telephone: 011 – 1645 5440

Abu Mamak

As a late-night supper, KSB Cahaya, known as Abu Mamak, is a favorite joint with Penangites.

It opens until 4 am in George Town.

Tom Yam Maggi Goreng’s combination with Fried Chicken and a cup of Iced Milo is the most popular order here.

You can get a Nasi Lemak Bungkus or two, Maggie Goreng, Roti Hong Kong and Roti Canai.

The food here is salty and can be very spicy for those who don’t take the heat well. Like me!

Restaurant KSB Cahaya (Abu Mamak) 90, Lorong Macalister, George Town, Penang
Business Hours: 8.00 pm – 4.00 am (Closed on Wednesdays)

Kedai Kopi Ali Dan Aleem

For a 24 hour joint, Kedai Kopi Ali Dan Aleem has a primary menu with a signature Nasi Lemak Goreng.

Since we are going for Maggi Goreng, here’s a piece of advice: order the Maggi Tom Yum Goreng Special.

Kedai Kopi Ali Dan Aleem, 21, Jalan Lunas, Kampung Syed, 10250 George Town, Penang

The Maggi Goreng here is everyone’s favorite with crispy Ayam Goreng (fried chicken) and sunny side up egg.

From Mamak stall, Alamak is now a trendy Mamak stall at Krystal Square, Bukit Gambir, Penang.

For those who enjoy their staple Maggi Goreng, Alamak has added the best Mamak food like Melted Cheese Burger, Chicken Chop Burger, and Nasi Lemak for supper.

Mamu Maggi Goreng (Car Park)

This Maggi Goreng is located within the Jalan Anson Car Park, so it’s not one of the places you could spot as you drive by.

The curry-flavored noodles are very eggy and have a soggy texture.

If you’re not concerned with your cholesterol readings, go on ahead and added a sunny-side-up egg or two for a gooey runny Maggi Goreng experience.
