The beloved Filipino fried desserts, Turon and Maruya, have received global acclaim, landing spots on the World’s Best 50 Donuts list, as rated by TasteAtlas reviewers this February 2024.

Turon, known for its crispy exterior and sweet, succulent interior, clinched the 17th position, while Maruya’s delightful banana fritters secured the 29th spot, showcasing the rich and diverse flavors of the Philippines on the global list topped by Bomboloni from Tuscany, Italy.

Turon, also recognized as Banana Lumpia, Turrón de Banana, or Lumpiyang Saging, is a celebrated Filipino snack. Made from saba plantains and jackfruit, these ingredients are sliced, coated in brown sugar, wrapped in a thin wheat wrapper, and fried to perfection. This dessert, which traces its origins to Chinese spring rolls, is often garnished with caramel or sesame seeds, offering a crunchy and sweet experience.

Maruya, another Filipino favorite, presents bananas in a crispy, battered form. Prepared with saba bananas, these fritters are either sliced or mashed, enveloped in a light batter, and fried until golden. Commonly dusted with sugar, Maruya serves as a delightful snack or dessert, cherished across the country for its simplicity and taste.
