IMAG1654 | Maggi Goreng @ Restoran Yunus Khan aka Jiao Sai
Many Penangites have been raving about the Maggi Goreng here at Restoran Yunus Khan. Among the Chinese, it is better known as ‘Jiao Sai‘ which means bird shit. Why bird shit? From the story I’ve heard, the restaurant is called ‘Jiao Sai’ due to their old location at Jalan Phee Choon where birds always poo poo there! LOL! As they’ve moved to this new location, you need not worry about the poo poo anymore!

I think besides the awesomeness of the Maggi goreng, the super smooth fried egg is the real bomb! I’m not sure how they did it, but this is the first time I’ve ever eaten a fried egg with such texture!

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      You're in Penang ma can go anytime!

  2. Huai Bin says:

    Haha! What an unappetizing nickname for the place. 🙂

    They even wrote Jiao Sai on their banner.

    The maggi goreng does look good especially the egg. What makes this place special?

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      I was taken aback by the nickname too!
      They put Jiao Sai on the banner cos they're already famous with this name :p
      Maggi goreng tomyam is their specialty!

    Aiyo…I agree with huaibin,what's with the jiao sai…pretty disguisting…all I can think of is fungal meningitis and haemophilus… >.<

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Haha it's ok for me la… just need to remember that it's just a name :p

    Not a fan of Maggi mee goreng – would go for the real yellow noodles as in mee mamak anytime.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      I really love Maggi goreng!! The taste is much more better than yellow mee =)

  5. HenRy LeE says:

    the maggi goreng looks good but why does it looks like indomee instead? hahaha 😀

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      LOL it's not Indomee la… I took a peek and it's actually a thai brand instant noodle!

  6. Ken says:

    This place is very famous among those night clubbers, particularly for desserts. They only serve Maggi Mee i think… haven't really tried before though… but i heard it's good…

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      You should try it one day 😀

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      Yeah that's the place! Hahaha jiak jiao sai sounds so wrong!! XD

  9. Anne Lee says:

    my bf always says that he's proud n lucky to be a malaysian because our country has the best maggi goreng ever.

    1. Charmaine Pua says:

      That's very true. My friend who went to Finland complained that they can't even get ingredients to cook Chinese food! And in Malaysia, we have all international food besides the local ones!
