Maga Restaurant (GPS: 5.39681, 100.3145) is a coffee shop at the junction of Perak Road with Van Praagh Road in Jelutong, Penang. It is busiest in the evening, when the people in the surrounding housing estates are back from work. Among the food available here include Yam Rice, Yong Tau Foo, Claypot Noodle, Hokkien Mee, Belacan Chicken, Tom Yam Noodles, Fish Head Bee Hoon and Koay Teow Thng, among others.

What's good

We tried the curry mee, the pan mee and the fried oyster. I like the curry mee, which I find at RM2.60 (April, 2013) to be quite inexpensive. The portion isn't large, and it comes in a small bowl with not much gravy. But the ingredient includes cuttlefish, which is quite a pricey item. The taste is also quite good. Although I thought the gravy isn't much, after I dig into this bowl, I found that it is sufficient. I later found out that the stall won the Battle of Penang Hawker Masters 2012 award.

My wife had the pan mee. According to her, it is also quite tasty. We ordered a plate of fried oyster. The style here is similar to the one you can get at Beach Street's Kedai Kopi Lam Ah, in that it is cripsy. I find it quite good, though I would prefer that the sauce is provided in a separate saucer. The price for a small plate is RM6.00, not too bad.

Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
