DBay Turon

I would like to give one of my best friends, Chris, credit for this easy-to-prepare yet heavenly dessert. Whether it was really he who came up with this, or his partner, AJ, or whether it was somebody else, I do not really know. Point is, it was Chris who brought this to our Ma Wan Tsuen kitchen, so it is Chris who gets the credit. In this blog, at least.

Quirky as it may sound, Dbay Turon brings together two simple banana-based desserts from two very different families of sweets-- the turon and the banana split (geographically, Cubao and Discovery Bay respectively)-- into one hearty delight. Quirky, indeed, but in a very, very mouth-watering way. It has a wholesome quality too, so it's definietly for anyone that has a sweet tooth, no matter what the age is.


  • 4 pcs., saging na saba
  • lumpia wrapper
  • 4 tbsps. brown sugar
  • 4 tbsps. white sugar
  • shreds of jackfruit (optional)
  • cooking oil (Canola, to make it less sinful)
  • 4-8 scoops Dreyer's Toasted Almonds Ice Cream


  • Slice bananas lengthwise.
  • Sprinkle some white sugar on the banana.
  • Wrap them by halves.
  • Coat each wrap with brown sugar.
  • Fry until brown sugar caramelizes.
  • Serve 2 pcs per plate.
  • Top with a scoop or 2 of ice cream.
  • Serve while turon is hot and the ice cream hasn't completely melted.
Serves 4.
