The Best Pisang Goreng and Kuih Bakul in Kuala Lumpur at Brickfields

Where is the best pisang goreng (banana fritters) and kuih bakul (fried “nian gou” sandwich) in Kuala Lumpur? The answer is simple, the infamous stall opposite YMCA in Brickfields.

Rachel told me that she has been patronising this stall since she was young. The stall has been there more than 20 years and the owner is Mr. Chiam with his son. At their stall they sell pisang goreng, kuih bakul, sesame balls and curry puffs. Curry puff is priced at RM 1.40 per piece while the rest are at RM 1.20 per piece.

You can spot their stall with long queues at most times. Customers come and go with at least half a dozen of pisang goreng, kuih bakul, sesame balls or curry puffs.
chiam cooking oil
Many stalls out there are using recycle cooking oil or dirty cooking oil. However at Chiam’s stall, I can see clean bottle cooking oils. In fact you can tell it from the frying pan. There is a big difference in recycle and new cooking oil; hygiene, healthiness and cost. Changing the pot of cooking oil is not cheap!

They only use king bananas (pisang raja) from Pahang. That’s why their bananas are at least twice the size of the common bananas. On top of their extra large sizes, they also use ripe bananas while others often use “green” bananas. The end product is beautiful batter-coated pisang goreng that you will crave for more.

For the kuih bakul, it is a fried “nian gou” sandwich that is also as good as its pisang goreng. It is a combination of “nian gou”, sweet potato and yam, coated with batter and deep fried to perfection. It is a Chinese delicacy but a darling for most Malaysians.
