Goreng Pisang. Its very hard to come across good goreng pisang these days. Known throughout the English world as Fried Banana Fritters, the lovely little homesnack should come in a crispy skin with a wholesome and juicy interior that shrieks of sweet banana goodness after getting past the first crunch.
I was at Maxwell Food Centre last week and after the entire meal of Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken rice, I simply had to order the freshly fried goreng pisang and chempedak that was just out of the fryer. Piping hot with a slightly oily coat, you could actually feel the crispiness. The batter is thin giving full focus towards the main ingredient right smack in the middle. And that goreng pisang was very good. A worthy contender to that Goreng Pisang stall at Longhouse along Upper Thomson Road.
$0.80 for 1 goreng pisang, I would say its a well worth it experience. The chempedak was just as good with big fleshy pieces being used. No skimping on the meat there though its been a very very long time since I had a good goreng chempedak with an cooked seed. But then again, just buy a little of this and a little of that, and I am sure I could simply sit back and relax with a nice mug of tea enjoying the cars whizzing by along the CBD area.
Lim Kee (Orchard) Banana Fritters, thumbs up! Know of any other good Goreng Pisang places?
