Apparently I am still high on that Filipino street food I had last Monday… and now I am having a turon-inspired Nutella banana lumpia (egg roll).
When talking about street food in the Philippines, turon (too-ron) or banana lumpia will probably make the cut. Turon?… is sweet! It is made with sliced bananas (preferably saba), thinly slices of jackfruit, and dusted with brown sugar, then rolled in lumpia wrappers (or egg roll wrappers) and deep fried to golden crisp. You can usually find (or smell!) them selling on the side walk alongside banana cue (caramelized banana on a stick), catering to jeepney drivers and college students on their meryenda (snack) break. They are cheap and so easy to make – you can whip up your own street food at home!
