i-Fry serves up giant Maggie goreng
Hawker stall i-Fry had appeared on my ‘gram a couple of times before, but I’d never paid much attention to it until I realised they serve up giant Maggie goreng. This Muslim-owned stall recently opened at Eunos, and they offer mostly Western dishes such as pasta, fries, and more. The highlight for us, of course, was the huge Maggie goreng, and we paid them a visit just for it.
Food at i-Fry
When their Maggie Goreng Deluxe ($20) was placed on our table, I was #shooked by the amount of fried noodles. Atop the Maggie goreng were three sunny side ups, cheese fries, chicken chop, and a chicken cutlet.
I am always excited when I see large portions of food, so I couldn’t wait to dig in! However, my excitement washed away as I stuffed my mouth with some mee. The noodles tasted like something I could have whipped up at home, and I expected something more as I was paying $20 for it.
The chicken chop was drowning in black pepper sauce, looking like a treasure waiting to be devoured. My knife slid through the meat easily, and just as expected, the meat was succulent and juicy. The sauce was a little on the sweet side, which I didn’t really enjoy, but those who like savoury-sweet dishes might appreciate it.
Drizzled in what seemed like sweet Thai chilli, their chicken cutlet was deep-fried till golden brown and had a nice crispy skin. Eating it, however, proved to be a challenge as it was slightly overcooked, resulting in dry and tough meat.
To go with the Maggie goreng, we tried two other dishes as well. First up, Beef Cheese Balls ($3).
Their beef balls are house-made, and were coated in mayonnaise and cheese sauce. Despite the sauces, the beef balls were dry. The flavour mostly came from the cheese sauce, so we wouldn’t recommend getting this along with the Maggie goreng, which already comes with cheese fries.
The last dish we tried was their Chicken Burger ($3). This consists of a chicken patty and a slice of melted cheese tucked between lightly toasted buns. This is a really basic burger, in terms of both looks and taste, so we say go for the Maggie goreng instead. For hawker burgers, we’d recommend Burgernomics and Hambaobao.
Ambience at i-Fry
i-Fry is found in a kopitiam that’s a stone’s throw away from Eunos MRT Station. The Maggie Goreng Deluxe usually sells out by 6pm, so you might want to head down earlier for it. i-Fry does deliveries and catering as well, so check out their Instagram page for more details!
The must-try at i-Fry is no doubt their Maggie Goreng Deluxe. If you live in the East, drag your kakis down for a serious Maggie feast! The other dishes we tried were nothing to shout about, but considering how new the stall is, we’re sure they’ll be able to improve along the way.
