Banancue: Human's Greatest Invention
This majestic wonder of beauty definitely deserved it's own article.
Looking back on our six months in Asia, the one food that keeps my mouth watering when I think about it is the Philippines' bananacue.
The Philippines - the country home to my favourite view and snack.
Yes, I am just as surprised that the least-vegan-friendly country we have ever visited has the one snack I loved most, but seriously...bananacue is amazing.

Bananacue is an entire banana deep fried in oil and brown sugar. I know what you're thinking - it sounds awful for you, and trust me, it absolutely is. But the taste...it's so...indescribably delicious.
It is typically found as street food in the Philippines. I luckily found it in El Nido, Port Barton, and Puerto Princessa during our three weeks in Palawan, so I frequented these stalls at least once a day!

The cost (for tourists, at least) was around $1 for 5 pieces (around 10 peso per piece) - very inexpensive.
So if you're travelling the Philippines...you must try banancue!
