Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang – Go Bananas Over Them
Mei Xiang Goreng Pisang at Changi Village Food Centre has been enjoying loyal support for its crispy fried banana fritters. Owner Mdm Mary Teo proudly claims she can sell at least a few hundred a day. Judging from the long queues, yes. Other than bananas, there is a wide selection of fruits and tubers such as tapioca, yam, sweet potatoes, green bean and coconut.
Do try the unique creation of the yam and pumpkin combination. Inspired by the dessert ‘orh nee’ (yam paste) at a Teochew restaurant, Mary created this ball-shaped snack resembling the Malay snack ‘banana bomb’. Best eaten piping hot, the yam-pumpkin paste will melt in your mouth, emitting fragrant goodness, and leaving little traces of oil.
