One of the reasons why this pisang goreng stands out above the rest is because Mawar uses some of the best species of banana around, with some coming all the way from Perak. Each banana is cut by hand, coated in the family’s special batter and fried before being served up with Mawar’s special dipping sauce.
It might sound a little odd dipping your banana fritters into a mixture of sweet soya and chilli but it works! What you get is a satisfying crunch and a mix of sweet and salty flavours topped off with a mild chilli burn. So much going on for something so simple! Just the thing for afternoon tea.
