Goreng Pisang At Free School Road (Greenlane)

Ah...it's finally great to be back in Penang after close to 3 weeks of constant travelling outside of Malaysia. Needless to say , i'm dying for Penang food especially the goreng pisang (banana fritters) stall along Free School Road. It's probably one of the few stalls in town that serves the best goreng pisang.

As far as I can remember, the goreng pisang stall has been around for a long time even way back during my schooling days. I would always make my way through the side entrance after the extra curriculum activities and head down the road just for the goreng pisang. Till today, the stall remains unchanged except for the fact that the business is now run by the son. Besides goreng pisang, you can find other yummy fried snacks like tnee kueh (glutinous cake), potatoes, tapioca rolls, yam and also curry puffs. Lastly, the goreng pisang stall is open from noon to 5pm from Monday till Saturday.

i think i tried this b4...many years ago! the pisang goreng really makes me mouth watering...the urge of going home/Penang is so much strong now! Personally, do u think this stall selling better pisang goreng compare to the one in front of Genting Cafe in Lorong Delima?

hello gigi. Thanks for your comments. The van at Delima is not too bad too. I believe another all time favourite goreng pisang stall is that one at Gaol Road new Pg Hospital and Pg Prison. That one has been there for a long time.

email2me-yes..the cempedak and kuey ko dok are my favourites. Unfortunately, the former only comes when in season :(
