Grilled Banana With Coconut Milk Sauce

A very cheap dessert that you can try right on the pavement throughout the center and the south of Viet Nam. It is called Chuoi Nuong (grilled banana).

They grill banana briefly first then cover it with cooked stickyrice. Before serving, it is chopped into pieces and coconut milk and crushed peanuts are added to the top.

It is an amazing dish which only costs about 5000Vnd.

mmmm, this is one of my favourite snack in Saigon. Unfortunately, in Brussels, it is difficult to find good bananas to grill ;-(

You make me so crazy with these street food posts, if and when I come to Vietnam to revist my roots I am going to find you.

Oh yum yum! My tummy is moaning! I wish we had street vendors with such yummy sweet dessert, I could never ever turn down anything sweet, one of my guilty pleasures...

My husband is against in "street food" but I tell him, it's really the best way to go to sample cheap local foods while traveling. The grilled bananas look SUMPTUOUS, I would eat those in a heartbeat. Jamaica is famous for their banana & rum recipes and I enjoy those type of deserts!
