The Best Goreng Pisang In The World

My wife had just finished her training stint at the local university. She was hungry and it was raining outside. She wanted to eat Goreng Pisang in Penang. I googled and everyone broadcasted the only stall in Tanjung Bungah which had been around since 30 over years ago! It was too far and the traffic would kill me. Suddenly I read an expired tiny story that there is one at Weld Quay area which is near the Ferry Terminal. I had to try my luck as there is no indication where exactly this "No Name Stall" was located.




I drove into Weld Quay and slowly looked left, right, left, right, left, right and Aaahhh! I found that stall across the street with a huge colourful umbrella! I could estimate that it was less than 300 metres to the Ferry terminal.




We darted across the busy street and stood right there like happy children. The friendly couple scooped all our choices - 2 Goreng Pisang, 2 fried Tee Kueh, 2 Fried Peanut fritters




Assorted fried fritters! Yums!



  
The best goreng pisang ever eaten!




I suggested that we had to eat somewhere lovely & relaxing to savour our yummy food which was so fresh & hot from the wok. We went to nearby Fort Cornwallis like a small boy dating a small girl.



    
It was so peaceful and serene to look at the rising tides of the sea. We held hands and sat down on the bench to smell our bagful of fried fritters. Chomp! Chomp! Chomp!





OMG! Look at mine! 
So yummy and melting hot with the oozing lava of Nian Gao.





Waah! Look at hers! Fried Goreng Pisang!
I swear upon heavens & earth that it was the best
Goreng Pisang which was so fragrant with slight
buttery taste! Yummy! Oh Mama!




Kuak! Kuak! Kuak!
The noisy crow wanted a bite too.

    1. I knew this goreng stuff would attract everyone including the crow! It is so sinfully sedap and I always get my fix from the stall at One Utama's LG Floor. They sell 3 pieces for RM5 of Fried tee Kueh with sweet potato & yam!

  7. Wah...I love fried tee kueh! Have you tried the famous one at SS2? I never liked goreng pisang until I tried that aunty's. I rarely get a chance to eat that but when I do, I always go for the tee kueh and goreng pisang.

    You and your wifey are so romantic lah. Next trip to Penang, I must ask my lahling to bring me eat this best goreng pisang! LOL!

    1. I have not tried the one in SS2. I think I will look for it tomorrow since it is near my house. Yes, you must bring your lahling to Penang and get fat-fat together. Life is short and time flies too fast.

  8. Well, romantic do not have to be dining at the Michelin restaurant right? Just the right person sit beside you, holding hands together and enjoying goreng pisang is lovely too. Give you 100xxx LIKE.

    1. Awwww! Thanks so much for your 100xxx LIKE! I am so flattered la.
      I agree that even goreng pisang and goreng potatoes can bring happiness. No need to pay the Michelin price. Ha Ha!

  9. I didn't know that fried nian gao is called fried tee kueh. I thought tee kueh is something else (is that nuts and carrot I see on the tee kueh?). The nian gao I know is always between a slice of sweet potato and yam. A good fried nian gao I know used to be in Jalan Imbi but they've now moved to the new Imbi market in ICC Pudu :)

    1. My thousands of apologies for posting the wrong photo!! Goodness! I must eat more Bilberry supplements. After Choi Yen commented below which is similar to yours! I took a good look and slapped my head. LOLOL

      In Penang, Singapore, Medan, Phuket & several Northern states of Malaysia, the Hokkiens call it Chian Tee Kueh (Means Fried Sweet cakes) Thanks for alerting me and I will really go to the new Imbi market at ICC to look for it. So far I get my supply from the LG floor of One Utama for RM5(3 pieces) which is just nice but not as good as the Penang one. The famous one sold at Happy Garden KL has lousy crispy skin which breaks into crumbles easily. ~failed~

  10. Si fried Tee Kueh = fried Nian Gao? But it looks like prawn fritter to me and you had it with chili sauce =.="
    You make me craving for those fried stuff but now I'm having sore throat and cannot eat lor :(

    1. I think it is only RM1.50
      That RM2.00 must be fried sausages.

  16. Rumour has it that the traders of pisang goreng tend to add plastic thing into the batter to make the pisang goreng more chrunchy.Dont know how far its true. I have since stop having them.
