Pisang goreng @ Fried banana fritters with light and crispy batter. Rm1.40 each

Queued 15 minutes on both occasions I had this since it is one of the most popular food stalls in Brickfields area. The pisang goreng (RM 1.40) is excellent. Crispy batter on the outside and banana being soft and sweet as they use the pisang raja variety. The fried nian gao (RM 1.40) is good (was not too chewy and sweet) as well as it’s nian gao, tapioca and yam in one fritter.


The famous kuih bakul and pisang goreng store in Brickfield. Uncle that fry those yummy crispy kuih right infront of you. Pisang goreng that not in frame taste so good. MUST try


Built upon years of dishing out his decadent pisang goreng, Uncle Chiam's reputation in Brickfields is nothing short of stellar. Come late afternoons, the deep-fried fruit (it almost sounds healthy!) is great fuel to get you through the day. The queue begins as early as 3pm but fret not, you won't have to wait long. Helped by his wife and kids, Uncle is constantly lifting fresh spoils off the wok. The Pisang Goreng (RM1.40) features local pisang raja known to crop sweeter flesh. We credit the sheer lusciousness of this humble snack to its perfect ratio of banana to batter. There are also irresistibly gooey Kuih Bakul (glutinous rice cake, RM1.30), Curry Puffs (RM1.50) and Sesame Balls (RM1.30), all hallmarked by their fresh quality. The latter earns a special mention for its rotund size and sugary filling of crushed peanuts, which Burppler Priska adores. Bonus: Uncle Chiam caters to events too, so if you can't get enough of these morsels, take them to your next shindig!
Avg price per person: RM5


The hour for tea in busy Brickfields means getting in line for this heavenly pisang goreng. Except, the lady ahead of me wiped them out (eight bananas, lady??) and I was faced with a 10-minute wait for a fresh batch. On any other occasion, I’m happy to wait for food. But my double-parked car swayed that patience, and so I returned to it with fried nian gao, or kuih bakul.

The good news is, it’s yummy stuff. The batter’s crunchy beyond belief while the yam and sweet potato embraced gooey nian gao for a soft, sticky sweet treat. Filling too.


Beneath the busy streets of KL Sentral, right in front of One Sentral foodcourt, lies this old cart surrounded by so many people. For over decades, this cart belongs to Mr. Chiam who sells his famous friend bananas.

You can only find four kinds of fried stuff in Mr. Chiam's cart, fried banana, sesame ball, kuih bakul, and curry puff. They could end up on your hands for RM1.30 per piece except for the curry puff which will cost you for an additional 20 cents.

Made with fresh and sweet pisang raja and completely coated with batter, resulting in crispy thin layered fried bananas. This batter is also used to coat the fried kuih bakul which is sandwiched between slices of sweet potato and yam. Do eat them while they are still hot to enjoy the sticky gooey kuih bakul in every bite! When common sesame balls are filled with red bean or green bean paste, Mr. Chiam's are filled with crushed peanuts and sugar covered with soft and chewy sesame skin.

All of the item Mr. Chiam made are guaranteed fresh because, why can't it be? His stall is crowded with customers every second!
