Banana cue, Turon…
Camote cue, Maruyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…….
Two teenage girls who are siblings, carry huge plastic-covered bilao, walk on streets and sell these very Pinoy comfort foods in our neighborhood. I can’t help but admire their early exposure and dedication to work just to support their studies and perhaps their family too. Tina and I always remind Gabby how blessed he is and for him to be always grateful for big and small blessings.
Whenever we hear their long shouts of the names of those caramelized and gooey native delicacies even on a Sunday afternoon, we often feel obliged to buy and savor these sweet skewered treats.
Prices range from PhP 7 -12; not bad for a Turon (not in the photo) even cooked with strips of Jackfruit. Yum!
