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!
