Brickfields Pisang Goreng
Brickfields Pisang Goreng is one of the most well-known street stalls in Brickfields selling banana fritters and other fried items such as sesame balls, kuih bakul, and curry puffs. Located in front of One Sentral Coffee Shop opposite YMCA, this humble stall is always surrounded by customers who are waiting for their banana fritters to be freshly deep-fried on the spot. They use only Pisang Raja to prepare the banana fritters, because the banana is bigger in size and very sweet when deep-fried.
