If you’re ever in Miri, all you need to do right now is drag your arse over to New Sau Pau cafe in Boulevard area, adjacent to Courts Mammoth, at 2pm and wait patiently for the magnificent golden shards of banana fritters that had descended from heaven’s deep fryer.
I’m no banana fritter or pisang goreng connoiseur, but it is arguably the best one that I’ve ever had. Perfectly crispy, with a sliver of almost custard like banana redolent of honey right in the middle. It was probably as close to perfection as one might get. Even more amazing is that this was made in Miri! Who says there’s no good food in these parts.
So, what are you waiting for?
