Do you love banana cue?

For those who are unfamiliar with this, banana cue is a classic Filipino snack food. It is a deep fried banana coated with caramelized sugar and skewered onto a thin bamboo stick. It is very delicious and not so expensive. I have just cooked it and it's my snack for now. I prefer to cook my own banana cue than buy those sold in the sidewalk of the street. Do you also eat banana cue?

You made me crave for banana cue... so i think i will buy one before going home... since there are some stalls that sell that... and they are quite cheap too... and most are cooked right infront of me... i love banana cue... but i don't eat it a lot because i don't want to increase my sugar intake...

The hot banana cue (newly cooked) are the best ones. I don't want to eat banana which have been cooked hours ago, the taste is different. I also prefer to cook it myself because I am sure of the sanitation during the preapration.

I searched the internet and I found out that plantains are the equivalent of the kind of banana used for our banana cue. You can add sugar to your cooking oil and let it caramelized using slowfire. You will surely enjoy its delicious taste.

I have never had one but my son talked about eating them when he was in the Philippines on a mission trip the summer of 2007. They sound delicious. I will sometimes take a banana and put it on a skewer and then put it in the freezer and freeze it. Then you dip it in melted chocolate and when the warm chocolate hits the frozen banana it makes a crunchy shell. Hmm...so good!

I am not familiar with bananas foster. Is it also deep fried and caramelized with sugar?
