|Kape Zambo's Turones|
If this isn't your first time to hear/read about Kape Zambo's version of this Filipino native delicacy, I'm not surprised. These scrumptious fried bananas wrapped in spring roll wrappers caused quite a stir, judging by the posts of my friends (and acquaintances) on Facebook and Twitter. Everyone kept on saying that they tasted divine. Of course, being the food lover that I was, I just had to try them myself.
Can you believe that my friends and I actually braved the heavy rain today just to have our fix of turones? When we arrived at Paseo del Mar, it was raining so hard to the point that using an umbrella seemed futile. Personally, I think it was all worth it. Apart from getting to unwind with good company, I was able to satisfy my craving for these crunchy rolls of heaven. They taste so good yet they don't burn holes through your pockets. For just P28 for a serving of three rolls, I think they are worth every cent. I like the way they thought of pairing haleya (if I'm not mistaken, it's coconut jam) with turon. My grandparents usually gift us with jars of this tasty concoction whenever they are able to make some, so I have grown to love haleya even before. Mom and I usually pair it with suman, so I never thought that it would also go so well with turon.
If you haven't tried them, I suggest you do. I made my friends try them and they were thankful for my recommendation. :)
