Best Maggi Goreng in Kota Kinabalu

Written by Updated ago

Maggi Goreng, the notoriously common dish in Malaysia named after the most famous instant noodle brand in this country. The dish is easy enough to make yourself when you have nothing else to eat but still prove to be a favourite safe choice when dining outside. The typical Maggi Goreng would use the Maggi brand instant noodles (though this may vary) with a mixture of ingredients like meat, condiments and spices. It is quite hard to screw up such an easy dish, mainly because you’re only adding to the readily available taste, but some places went above and beyond in cooking or creating their own recipe of Maggi Goreng.

    Restoran Taj is a local Mamak in Bornion Commercial Centre that attracts enough attention for their dishes. Maggi Goreng is just another menu available here but deserves special mention because of how they do it. Normal Maggi Goreng can be boring so Restoran Taj spices it up with a sunny side up egg. Not enough you say, still boring? Well, Taj took it up a notch and added fried chicken for good measure. Their fried chicken is known be deliciously juicy and rich in flavour as expected of a Mamak style fried chicken. 

    Tips

    Poke your egg yolk before you start eating and watch the goodness trickling down and soak your plate of Maggi Goreng.

    Things to expect

    A well-proportionate size for the price that you pay.

    Best with

    The fried chicken is a must.

    Price

    RM7.00 to RM15.00

    A restaurant that is famously known for its lunch menu and even more so for its delectable grilled fish (ikan bakar), Annajah & Katering Restaurant also offers cooked food by order. One of them (obviously) is Maggi Goreng. Done in their own style, the Maggi Goreng is more of a ‘wet’ version compared to the usual. While the visual may not be so enticing, this plate of Maggi Goreng is a classic case of not judging a book by its cover. The dish is also not that spicy so more people can enjoy it.  

    Tips

    Avoid lunch hours if you hate crowds.

    Things to expect

    Good service by the staff.

    Best with

    Why not add on to your plate of Maggi some of the many lunch dishes available?

    Nasi Kandar Anak Mami is a local restaurant known for its Nasi Kandar and other Mamak delicacy that also includes Maggi Goreng. Such a simple dish, it is actually quite easy to get it wrong. Most places only sells standard Maggi Goreng, the kind that even you could make at home, just that you couldn’t be bothered. Serving the classic Mamak style Maggi Goreng has lead to good response from patrons dining there. Full of flavour and exciting texture, something so simple can be made incredible. 

    Tips

    The service varies from time to time so it's best to lower your expectations.

    Things to expect

    A restaurant that closes quite early for a Mamak.

    Best with

    Pair this with Mee Goreng Mamak or the Cheese Naan with Tandoori Chicken.

    Price

    RM3.50

    Restoran MeeranPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    The kind of dishes here seems to run the theme ‘lamb’. But that is what makes Restoran Meeran a worthy visit, their lamb galore. It is only natural for them to add in lamb in their Maggi Goreng recipe and that they did. It may not be the best cholesterol combination but lamb, and Maggi, are loved for a reason. Tagging along for the ride are the usual ingredients; some greens, cabbages, egg and lime. Relatively better than other shops selling similar version of Maggi Goreng, Restoran Meeran is worth being on the list of place to visit.

    Tips

    Maggi plus lamb; not a good thing to eat if you’re on a diet.

    Things to expect

    Quite a generous portion with a little bit of everything.

    Best with

    A classic dish deserves a classic drink like Teh Tarik or Milo.

    Price

    RM8.00

    Restoran SalimPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Restoran Salim’s Maggi Goreng is relatively simple; Maggi noodles fried with cabbages and mustard leaves with bits of scrambled egg, it further strengthens the notion of how the simple the dish is. But when you’re out and bout at some ungodly hour in the morning, sometimes you crave more than the usual ‘roti’ so Maggi Goreng is pretty much the next safe bet. It is a crime not to eat this with a sunny side up egg; just watching the runny yolk running down your noodles, there may be bigger pleasures in life but for now, this is enough. 

    Tips

    The restaurant opens all day, every day so whenever the cravings hit, you know where to go.

    Things to expect

    A plain looking plate of Maggi Goreng but sometimes a little familiarity goes a long way.

    Best with

    Restoran Salim is known for their Roti Tisu Gunung Kinabalu, because let’s be real; one plate of Maggi Goreng is not enough.

    Price

    RM4.00 to RM7.00

    Kopi Ping Café is quite a famous one as it is located at one of the busiest area, Damai Plaza. Although known among the public for other type fried noodles, the Maggi Goreng is equally as good. Clearly this café know their way around frying noodles. Maggi Goreng being one of the most versatile dishes, customers could request how they want their Maggi to be served; with vegetables, no vegetables, extra meat, add a fried egg, name it and it’s done. Rarely people would comment on how well a Maggi Goreng is so when they do, you know that it’s good. 

    Tips

    Order your Maggi Goreng the way you want it.

    Things to expect

    A well café environment that is a bit more upscale but with the same low price.

    Best with

    Named Kopi Ping Café, it would be a good idea to go for their Kopi ‘Ping’ while you’re at it.
