If you’re a true Maggi lover, chances are, you’re crazy over Maggi goreng.

Nothing beats the distinctive smell of maggie noodles stir-fried with sauces and completed with a hint of lime.


Bufflord95: Isn’t that what you say about Old Chang Kee’s Nasi Lemak puff?

Okay, almost nothing.

But what if I were to tell you that there’s a shop at Kembangan that sells not just Maggi goreng, but it’s upgraded with lobster, and it’s halal.

Now, before you think I’m pulling it out of my ass like a certain hospital is pulling out six-pack abs, think again.

Because such a store exists.

And it exists in Singapore.

Jom Makan BBQ Seafood

People say you can tell a lot about a place by its name.

And this seafood stall isn’t any different.

We’ve often waited for tomorrow for a meal with our family. But what if tomorrow never comes? Watch this and you'll understand:

In case you don’t understand Malay, here’s a “translated” version of their name: Come Eat BBQ Seafood.

And judging by their Maggi Goreng, that’s a name well-deserved.

But, if you’re not a fan of lobster, don’t worry.

There Are Other Versions Too

The Scallop, Lala Maggi Goreng for shellfish lovers.

The Prawn Maggi Goreng.

It’s like going for ice cream and choosing your toppings. Just better.

Pretty Affordable Prices Too

Feel like splurging but don’t earn enough to eat like my fat boss? Don’t worry because the prices here are pretty affordable.

  • Boston Lobster Maggi Goreng: $23
  • Scallop, Lala Maggi Goreng: $15
  • Prawn Maggi Goreng: $20
  • Lala Maggi Goreng: $15

But Boon, you say, over $10 for a plate of Maggi goreng is a bit expensive, isn’t it?

Well, that’s why I didn’t say cheap. It’s affordable because for the stuff that goes into the Maggi goreng? The price’s pretty worth it.

In other words, good for foodie adventures and special occasions, but it’s not something you can eat every day.

White Bee Hoon Special

Now, if you’re not a fan of Maggi Goreng (why?! Just why?!), don’t worry because the goodness above? They’re just a small part of the equation.

Jom also has White Bee Hoon options available for customers.

And, of course, you can’t miss out on their speciality.

Shovel Seafood Platter

Seafood lovers, nothing gets you revving up more than having a metal shovel worth of seafood piled onto the table right in front of you.

Make sure you try their speciality, especially if you’re making your way into the east of Singapore just for them.

You can customise the platter with a range of seafood including crab, crayfish, squid, clams, prawn, lobster and scallops.

They’ll cook the seafood before bringing it out on a metal shovel. Don’t worry, it looks like a clean shovel in the video.

So What Are You Waiting For?

If you live in Yishun and you think the stall looks familiar, that’s because it is.

Jom Makan BBQ Seafood used to operate in a coffee shop in Yishun but has since moved to Kembangan.

So don’t wait liao and start making dinner plans with your friends.
