Goreng Pisang and Fried Fritters at Weld Quay, Penang by what2seeonline.com

Sweet deep fried snack!

Deep fried fritters are one of the cheapest yet absolutely delicious tea time snacks. There is a hawker stall along Weld Quay selling a variety of these deep-fried fritters which is one of Malaysia best tea time snacks.

There’s even the deep fried Jin Tui (glutinous rice ball) with a chewy texture surrounded by sesame seed and filled with crushed peanut and sugar in the center. This snack has always been my absolute favorite! The coating of sesame seeds gives extra flavor and nice crunch to it. This Jin Tui was particularly good!

Next up was the “everyone’s favorite” snack… The Goreng Pisang! The deep fried bananas are prepared with a crispy light batter and generally appeals to most customers. It is tough to resist this banana fritters bursting with sweetness.

Besides that, the stall also sells the deep fried tapioca! Not many stalls have this deep fried tapioca nowadays. The mashed tapioca is formed into rolls before deep fried. It has a warm creamy texture and a distinctive flavor.

PenangTuaPui – I have to park right opposite the side road and walk all the way to get my hands on those hot yummy snacks…worth the walk :)

hApPy HaPpY – Yam and the sweetness of the potato goes hand in hand… indeed tasty.

Jin tui is also my all time favorite. Is this stall better than the one at Free School?

foodbin – It is not easy finding a good one as most are big and has little filling.

Jason Wong – I would say each of them has their own specialty.

smart – Both stalls have certain items that I like and Jin Tui is my favorite from this stall. Will take you to this stall the next round.

I think CK, you would’ve known I like all these snacks, more than full meals themselves. :)

lingzie – Sometimes they do not have all the items ready… at times have to wait.

iamthewitch – The lek tau is similar to those inside the tau sar pneah and the texture like the Jin Tui.

mimid3vils – Can always balance it with some cooling Chinese drinks…leong char. There is one good leong char shop in Kimberley street.

J2Kfm – I know you can’t resist these snacks, neither can I :)

Hi CK – I stumble across your blog by chance, from Twitter. Great insight on Penang food.
I have never been to that side of George Town for many years.

The fried fritters and Tan Jetty’s Thai eating house (from earlier post) are a must in my next visit to Penang in CNY. I am getting very hungry now. Thanks.

my favorite is always fried cempedak!

CK,

I agree. It is like people they have their own character and motives. I second your comment that each individual stall has it own specialty, not everything is good. Thus, when we comment, it should be objective and fair without sugar coatings of sort.

Wah, so many goodies in one stall. Love the glutinous balls with fillings. Wonder how much for each ball. Bought some from the new food court at Queensbay @ Rm 1.40 each recently.

Victor – Nice having you dropping by. Do drop me an email of your next trip back to Penang. Will guide you to some yummy food.

xin – I did not come across any cempedak on that day. Must ask them if they do sell this item.

Sweet Jasmine – I can’t recall the price but I am think it is definitely less than what you paid for at Queensbay. Give this stall a visit to try out the fried goodies.

coco – The fried items are yummy…mine is the Jin Tui :)

What I love most about this stall is they sell something that I cannot find in other deep-fried snack stalls : Deep fried bread with corn. Super duper yummy!

Check out the picture I took of it some time back:

To me, that one item is what differentiates this place from the tonnes of stalls selling similar items all over Penang.

Sadly, this place only starts operating from 2pm onwards. So can’t head over during lunch time unless your lunch time is super late.

Hi… Found this by chance. I normally go for the one at green lane. But the stall seem to have vanished, the last time I was back. Going back again soon and hope you can recommend some nice hokkien mee and ban Cheng kuih. :) thanks.
