Banana cue is a Filipino based delicacy that is slowly making its way up to the best tasting afternoon delights made by Filipinos. Banana cue is bananas glazed in sweet caramelized sugar. They are usually served in sticks but they can also be served without. Cardava banana is the kind of banana used in this sweet delight. It is always present in the market places because this is also considered to be one of the types of street foods available in the Philippines.
