Shopping centre stall Magic Cuisine sits between Box Hill’s food court, fresh food hall and Asian grocery section – the perfect spot, as it acts as a little bit of all three.
Here you can get fully cooked meals just waiting to be reheated at home or in the office, hard-to-find delicacies that have been cooked the traditional way, smaller dishes you can have on the side and basics you can mix and match with almost everything else – all at affordable prices.
Grab a clear container filled with fare such as cold noodle salads, Shanghai-style stir-fried shrimp, whole deep-fried fish, poached chicken with chilli sauce, preserved radish, pickled vegetables, pig trotters, chicken feet and ox-tongue. There are also steamed buns filled with barbequed meat you can easily eat on the go.
The corner stall has a modern and minimal look, with a few photos of the food along the back wall. The whole counter is taken up by display cabinets, filled to the brim.
