Nope, this is not an eggroll. It's even better, because it's dessert.
Say hello to the turon, my most recent discovery at Delite Bakery in Beacon Hill. What is a turon (or turrón, as I've seen it elsewhere), exactly? Well, according to Wikipedia,
Though many varieties exist, a typical turrón is plantain and jackfruit wrapped in a springroll wrapper, dipped in brown sugar, then fried. This somewhat resembles banana spring rolls. These are also known as banana fritters.
Delite's version was made with banana, and had the most delicious slightly crackly, carmelly-sticky crust which gave way to the sweet taste of banana. The banana's texture was perfect: yielding, but not too mushy. A satisfying treat, and surprisingly for something fried, not too heavy-- all in all, perfect for a hot day and definitely worth seeking out if you find yourself in the Beacon Hill area.
