We all love some crispy, crunchy treats to get us through a hectic mid-day, right? Though Penang’s weather has been unbearable, somehow we just can’t keep our hands off these fried temptations. While most of the fried snacks stalls are conveniently located in Georgetown, today we’ll make a trip up the other side of Penang that is known for its pristine beaches; Tanjung Bungah. Put your hands together for Hin Pin Pisang Goreng!
Hin Pin Pisang Goreng is a humble stall by the hillside of Tanjung Bungah. The friendly owner is the second generation handling this stall as it was first established by the owner’s father. In saying this, we would all know that they have been around for some time. The specific figure hits 50 years. Can you guys imagine? They have been around longer than some of us might notice! Alright, time to get down on what this stall offers. Ready?
Pisang Goreng (RM 1.50- RM 3)
The Pisang Goreng here is the bomb. We’re not even exaggerating. This is because they dip fry the entire banana into their homemade batter not once, but twice so as to get that extra crispiness perfectly coating the bananas.
Upon the first bite, the crispy crust crackles in your mouth and when you chew onto the banana that’s already sweet on its own, you’ll be grateful for this creation. However, the Pisang Goreng here isn’t available on a daily basis since it would be highly dependent on the banana’s supply. Also, if you visit the stall close to 4 PM, these fried beauties would very well be sold out.
Fried Ti Kueh (RM 1.50)
The second bestseller item at this stall is the Fried Ti Kueh. Fried Ti Kueh or Fried Glutinous Rice Cake usually consists of the Nian Gao sandwiched in between 2 equal slices of yam or sweet potato. However, over at Hin Pin Pisang Goreng, instead of either 2 slices of yam or sweet potato, you get 1 slice of yam and 1 slice of sweet potato with chewy Nian Gao in between. What a way to get the best of both worlds! When you bite into the Fried Ti Kueh, the Nian Gao’s texture is so chewy you can see it being pulled apart.
Kuih Kodok (RM 0.70)
When a stall sells Pisang Goreng, the next available item has got to be Kuih Kodok. Kuih Kodok is the shorter way to say Chekodok. This particular tea time treat is made using overripe bananas shaped into circular fried banana balls. It has a crispy outer layer with tender texture on the inside. Biting into this treat, you’ll get sweetness from the banana as well as a hint of saltiness from the crispy batter.
Fried Mung Bean (RM 0.80)
The final must-try item at this stall is the Fried Mung Bean. Priced at only RM 0.80 per piece, the texture on the inside of this snack is one that is smooth with a sweet aftertaste. As Mung Bean is the common ingredient in Tau Sar Pneah, this tastes almost the same except it has a crispier texture on the outside.
