Turon or deep-fried banana rolls is a typical Filipino meryenda and dessert. This can usually be seen on the streets being peddled along with banana-que. In Makati, several jolly jeeps (stalls along the road; formerly jeepneys that serve lunch) sell Turon along with other meryenda during the afternoon. This delicious and healthy dessert is an all time Filipino favorite. Have I mentioned that Turon is so affordable and also easy-to-prepare?
