The egg with the maggie is absolutely delicious. The yolk when mixed with the maggie creates a mouth watering taste.

If you're a mamak fan, this is the right place for you. Everything on the menu is unique. My personal favourite is Maggi goreng tomyam ayam special and grapes+sunquick orange juice. The people working there are fun and friendly. One of the best mamak I've been to.

First of all, this is considered one-stop indian muslim food center. Just name it and you got it. All type of roti canai (flattened bread), fried noodles, nasi lemak and toasts. Service is fast even during peak period. The hot ginger-tea is a must-try. As for the food, one should really try their 'signature dish', roti john hongkong. I do... More

Best Roti Canai & Milo-o-Ais in Town. Arguable is the place, but the mentioned food is the best.
