It never gets old. There’s just something sentimental, and magical, about the nostalgic flavours of pisang goreng. These morsels of crispy delights, lovingly dipped in batter, and deep fried. Sometimes twice. Perhaps it’s the heady aroma of caramelised bananas. The sheer bliss of endless summer memories. Consequently making you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Or maybe we’re just predisposed to be lured by sweet and greasy temptations. While millennials are dictating what new concoction floods our social feeds, our love for the humble pisang goreng remains.
“Yes, We Have Fried Bananas” – The Sweet Nostalgia Of Banana Business
To begin with, it’s easy to see the appeal. The high-energy sugar rush makes them ever-present in our social and economic development. For instance, it has even made an impact on the way we speak. When business is booming and “selling like hot cakes”, we’d typically say it’s flying off the rack like “hot pisang goreng on a rainy day”. Clearly, you know Malaysians love their food when it becomes an idiom.
Certainly a crowd-pleaser among busy office workers and hungry school children, pisang goreng used to be available at every corner. At a dime a dozen, unquestionably, it’s a taste of nostalgia in less trying times.
Giving A New Twist On Nostalgic Flavours Of Pisang Goreng
Without a doubt, millennials are shaping how and what we eat. If you’ve seen any improvements in our food choices lately, thank the millennials. In particular to them, it’s not just a social thing. It brings joy with no regrets about spending on food that could have easily been whipped up at home. It’s especially about the experience and form of expression. About being more health conscious without skimping on indulgence. Most importantly, it’s about convenience.
All You Need Is (Pisang Goreng) Love, But Some Chocolate & Cheese Don’t Hurt
A start-up currently making waves, Smackeylicious, takes into consideration millennials’ taste for flavour adventures. Their idea of comfort food elevates the pisang goreng to another level of culinary stardom. Specifically, through a marriage of savoury and sweet in a lip-smacking treat everyone can’t resist.
Even though a combo not new to foodies, Smackeylicious brings back the much sought-after nostalgia with a more upscale, premium flavour. Each pisang goreng is laced with fine Belgian milk chocolate, followed by a few rounds of dark and white. Then freshly grated Cheddar cheese and lashings of luscious caramel completes this amalgamation of sweet surrender.
Accelerating The Pisang Goreng Bandwagon
Moving forward with convenience in mind, getting your hands on some Smackeylicious is a piece of cake. Aside the traditional cash-based transactions, customers are able to pay for their pisang goreng with Maybank QRPAY as well as using Touch N Go eWallet. However, their soon-to-open branch at International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur will be a totally cash-free establishment.
They hope to keep lines short and customers feeling sweet through their easy payment method. Efficiently, it makes for a seamless snacking experience and lets the queues zip by. In other words, we don’t have to wait in line watching people in front count their coins. Yes, even if we’re that close to getting the much-needed energy boost.
