Copycat KC Turon

Copycat KC Turon is a type of turon popularized by Kanin Club and is prepared with saba banana, ube halaya, sweetened red bean and macapuno.


Honestly when I go to Philippines for a vacation Kanin Club is one of the first places that I will try, they brighten and give a new life to the traditional dishes I grew up with hence even though I haven’t dined in the said restaurant I try to recreate the ones I see on the menus I see online.

The guys behind this place is brilliant and I had tried several of their dishes at home, all of them were phenomenal and definitely the talk of my circle of friends here in New Zealand. The latest one I will be recreating is their turon. Turon for those who does not know what it is, it is a type of banana wrapped in a spring roll pastry then deep fried, it is a popular street food back home and was never changed since it was invented until now.


KC Turon is the Kanin Clubs version of the turon, it is turon on steroids as its way much better than the traditional one. Think of it as a fried version of the halo halo since it is fused with additional ingredients found on that popular dessert drink. Prepared with the saba banana, ube halaya, sweetened red bean and macapuno this is a super turon. At first while I was wrapping it I was imagining how would this go but after cooking one and hurriedly cooled it down, I was surprised! Why did they not thought of doing this on the first place!


I think this turon opened up a lot of ideas for me, this sparked my creativity so watch this space and see more inspired dishes that I will create. Thanks Kanin Club for this inspiration and hopefully your business grow bigger so you can establish a branch here in New Zealand.

    Wow! This is really out of the box cooking! Next time put in some leche flan, too.

    Sadly, when I went to the Kanin Club near UP Diliman, I had food poisoning. But, yes, the food was good, just did not agree with me.

    Have never heard of a turon but it looks awesome! Bananas and deep fried – how could it not be good.

    Oh? For a while, I thought they were popiah. I think you call them lumpia, same as in Indonesia.
