When mentioning fried banana, at first you may think about those famous fried banana being sold to you around Yommarat area when you get stuck with red light while driving. Here is another great fried banana, it is located in Phrachuab Khiri Khan Province within Soi Hua Hin 68. It is called Kluay Thod Krata Thong, meaning golden-pan fried banana. Many of you may know that it was at Soi Hua Hin 51 (selling in a green mini van) but have recently moved to this new place.
What great about this banana is that it is so crisp, yet the soft touch of inside banana is really wonderful. Batter that contains coconut milk as an ingredient gives really nice taste. The selection of banana is also taken with care such that each banana is not over ripe nor unripe. Thickness is also just right giving delightful texture and touch. The more you eat, the more you want. Once start eating this fried banana, it is hard to stop. Some people did even try to buy the recipe of this fried banana for over a million Thai baht but the owner did refuse and mentioned that it is not for sale.
Ok let me give it 7/10 for the taste. As it is just fried banana and I cannot find a way to give it more than that: creativity, technique, and so. If I was to score it for fried banana only, it would have been 9 or 10/10 seriously.
PS. The queue of this place can be really long, especially during public holiday. Bear in mind that you will need to take a queueing ticket in order to buy. Additionally, when there are too many people waiting, you may be limit to buy just THB100 max. Anyway, enjoy your banana. ^^
