I have been racking my brains trying to figure out what else I have not featured on the blog before and suddenly it hit me one day, it was one of the all time favourites of any Malaysian from the mamak stall i.e. the Maggi Mee Goreng. There's something so great about these fried noodles made from the Maggi brand instant noodles that always makes me crave for more.
Although found in every mamak stall, it's not easy to find a truly great Maggi Mee Goreng as most of the time the noodles end up overcooked resulting in a soggy mess which reminds me of my homecooked efforts. At this al-fresco stall in popular SS2's open air Medan Selera (Food Court in Malay), the Maggi Mee Goreng (RM3) is in my own opinion, close to perfection as the noodles are cooked al dente, spicy but too spicy to make your eyes water plus tasty with the minimum of ingredients to make you itch to order a second plate. These noodles will always come with egg (usually scrambled in the noodles), spinach and pieces of tofu. For this stall, order your fried noodles with a sunny side fried egg that complements the dish perfectly.
If you wish for something more substantial with your meal, you can also order from the other stalls that sell Thai food, fried seafood like lala, O Chien (Oyster Omelette) and etc. Bear in mind though, these stalls can be quite territorial so check with the stall owners if they do deliver to where you sit before you order. It's best to sit near this stall when you place your order as there are a few mamak stalls that have marked out their territory.
