A Banana cue or Banana Q (Tagalog: Banana kyu) is a popular snack food in the Philippines of deep fried bananas coated in caramelized brown sugar. Banana cue is made from Saba bananas. It is usually skewered on a bamboo stick, and is sold on the streets. The skewer stick is just for ease of serving and eating, but is not cooked on the skewer (as opposed to ginanggang).

Etymology[edit]

The term is a portmanteau of banana and barbecue (which in Philippine English refers to meat cooked in a style similar to kebabs).[1]
