Goreng Pisang (炸香蕉) @ Lim Kee Banana Fritters - Maxwell Hawker Centre

I love bananas despite its sexual association for those dirty minded individuals! But i have an excuse - i was born in the zodiac year of the most mischievous mammal on earth; the Monkey!

Now, bananas exist in various shapes and sizes and can be cooked in many different styles. My preference is either natural or deep fried in a pot of sizzling oil. Of course, Chinese-style fried bananas are the best!

My favourite goreng pisang stall used to come from a narrow building next to Singapore Power in Somerset. However, it disappeared suddenly and i thought it will be lost forever just like many of Singapore's famous hawkers who could not find anyone to inherit their marvelous culinary skills.

My worry was unwarranted as i found the same stall (Lim Kee-林记) again while walking around Maxwell Food Centre to source for food for the Gang of Four's feast!

And how could i resist not buying anything for a nostalgic recollection?

It felt plump and solid in my hand with a crispy crunch that delivered speckles of sand-like crusts. Surprisingly, it didn't leave an oily stain on my palm like most fried-banana stalls!

The inside was a stark contrast to its outlook; so ripe to the point of being so soft. It was at a richness that far exceeded what i had at Boon in Long House.

With so much good and delicious food in Maxwell, i guess i have to put aside my dieting plan and make it the "binge" place whenever my brain has enough of soupy products.
