To me (and I’m sure most Filipinos will agree) Turon is considered a street food because it is cooked and sold on the street sidewalks. This delicious dish is usually sold along with other popular street food such as Kamote Cue and Maruya. Here in the states, Turon is also a staple for almost every Filipino party either as finger food or as dessert. Speaking of party, I think I am including turon as part of my Christmas Noche Buena dinner. Thank you everyone for reading and ENJOY!
