Pisang Goreng (Fried Banana) @ Brickfields KL

As I say that I will talk about BANANA today..

Last Sunday I was having lunch at Brickfield.
My wife told me that there is a famous pisang goreng at that area..
We searched for it and found it...


This goreng pisang is in front of restoran Yit Seang
The fried flour is mix in a claypot.. 
hmm wonder why...

They use good oils..
which is the most important frying stuff... 
some seller use those cheap packet oil....
The oil also looks fresh and NOT OVER USED BLACK FRYING OIL..

They use those ROTTEN RIPE BANANA.... 
make it extra sweet..

I buy the fried banana and the fried yam... 
do you know why there is a hole on the fried yam?
this is because they do a Quality check whether the yam is cook or not..
If it is not cook they fried it again.. 
Then I also see that they cut (potong) off those rotten area on the banana.. 

Well as they say that GOOD QUALITY DOESN'T COME CHEAP.... 
I didn't order the curry puff.. I think it should be nice too....

P/S : I found another hidden gem in the Restaurant Sit Yiang... 
I was informed that their CKT is very nice (you can see it in my first picture).. 
one day I shall come back and try it...

  3. did you try their 炸年糕?? they are more famous with that than the banana fritters.. I found their banana most of the time quite "gip" so I always buy the 年糕 only..

    ReplyDelete

    1. did you have to queue up to buy the banana?? sometimes when their 年糕 are ready, there will be lots of ppl queuing up, and everytime those people sapu one.. that's why they allow customers to call up and order first..

      Delete
    2. I actually never notice the oil they are using haha!! you so observant, or you always go and check people's things?? good to know they are ethical then, no wonder the things are slightly more expensive..

      Delete
    3. Ya lor, SP is so observant.

    4. I like 炸年糕 also and I also like goreng chempedak.

    5. Is the goreng-goreng ones cheap, thus the long queue?

      We have one shop selling those goreng stuff, but the price doesn't come cheap and the taste deteriorated already. One banana fritter is around RM0.70

      Delete
    6. Ya I know about this one. Have long Q punya and des not comes cheap.

      Next time order first then go eat CKT la. The CKT there is reall BEST in KL leh.

      Next to the CKT is the Pork Noodle. You take pork right? If not mistaken it's called Peter Pork Noodle. I love the soup. I think its because they put "Thung Choy" to make the soup.

    7. the 炸年糕 is 90-sen a piece the last time i bought, quite expensive lor, but then still a lot of people buying in bulks.. wah, that CKT must be meow's favorite lah, praise until heaven have earth don't have.. later SP got very high expectation and found it normal, lagi disappointing him..

      Delete
    8. Most sellers buy second hand oil disposed from the famous K F C & M C D outlets!! Sometimes your goreng pisang will taste nicer with chicken flavour!

    1. lots of nice food in that rundown coffee shop eh.. besides the CKT the 豬肉粉 and 雞飯(especially the 燒肉) also nice.. you should go back to try, haha!!

      Delete
    2. and outside the coffee shop you can find an auntie selling all sorts of kueh and economy noodles.. and she is always busy with the non-stop-coming customers.. I usually buy done stuffs from her for afternoon tea after lunch at the coffee shop..

      Delete
    3. I'm sure you'd be overwhelmed by the choice you can have their from her little stall.. no joke!!

      Delete
    4. BTW i think the curry puff is nicer from the kuih auntie than from the banana stall.. auntie one got egg or without egg one.. :)

      Delete
    5. I'm not good with the route in Brickfields. Just passed by the place several times and never stopped for food there :(

      Delete
    6. I have tried the kuih from that auntie before. Not really ngum me. But portion very big la that auntie cut.

  7. Brickfield itself already a hidden gem for good food... this goreng pisang stall has been doing loads of business from me coz last time used to study around there.. they also got one shop sell nice 'mui fan' and hainanese chicken chop facing the main road and KL sentral...

  10. Over-ripe bananas is not only sweet, it is said to have anti-cancer properties too.

    I always eat over-ripe bananas one... the one already with dark spots on them. They are soooooo sweet!

    p.s SP, go Brickfields just to cari goreng pisang kah? Salute man!

    1. I never know that ripe banana has anti cancer properties..
      I eat lunch at Brickfield ..
      so after that makan goreng pisang

    2. I just love pisang in whatever form or way. Goreng Pisang, Cake Pisang, scone pisang, ice-cream pisang, kuih pisang, and etc. As long as the ingredients have pisang. I eat.

      May be in my past life, I was a monkey.

    3. I like over-ripe banana due to the extra sweetness. But others in my family say that banana already lanyak, not nice. So they always finish up the bananas before they get over-ripe.

      Delete
    4. Oh that's what i dont like in banana... the dark spot bcoz it's over ripe... I usually take that past out and eat the good part... I am surprised you like over ripe banana

      Delete
  11. Woow..good that they use good oil. I don't mind to pay a lil more for the goreng pisang rather than some reuse the oil again and again.

    CKT? I think Mamarazzi like to go there if not mistaken.

  19. Their curry puffs pastry is horrible and badly done! The filling is nice but when you bite it, avalanche!!! All will crumble and drop on the floor!! Blergh!!

    I think the best Curry Puffs are sold at Old Klang Road tepi jalan (Opposite Taman Desa) and the shop at Uptown which costs a bomb. So good that you can see heavens after one bite!

  27. Look at the texture of their crispy skin banana, i bet they add "kapur or sei fui" in the batter, i learnt this from a Malay lady working in my old office canteen last time, they both look the same.

  28. I like that they don't use recycled oil! More healthy!
