    I should not watch this video at night! I agree that banana has various kinds in Thailand, some I don’t event know that they exist, but Kluay Namwa is one of my favourite kind. It is not only transformed as a desert, but it can also used as the medicine. It can treat Dyspepsia, Sore throat, Insomnia, and contain a large amount of Calcium. I always enjoy eating Kluay buat-chee or banana in coconut milk, maybe you should try!

  • I agree that bananas are awesome! Also in their original form, always eating them before sports :)

    Banana can be like a staple food which can make various kind of foods! You can get it some grub, or it can make in many dessert menus like bananas with coconut milk. Gluay ping is the dericious one! I suggest you to try Sun-dried banana the taste is also another good one!

    I’m not a big fan of things that are too sweet however when they are fruit based especially banana,I definitely love it! Maybe you should try others banana menus. I highly recommend you to try Fried Banana. (Gluey tod or Gluey kaek).

    What a favourite sweet for many people but is not mine sometime. I prefer other kinds of banana instead such as fried banana. But banana can easily find in Thailand and it is a common snack or sweet for Thai people.

    I really love bananas! Bananas are incredibly many benefits, nutritious and can contribute to a healthy with balanced diet. Making it a must to add to our daily diet. There are several kind of bananas but one of my favorite is “Kluay Khai.” These bananas one can just eat, or fry on the grill in the sauce. They can be dried to make candy and cakes.

    I love Gluay Ping! It is a simple but very delicious treat. Thai people created a lot of banana menus such as Gluay Ping, Gluay Tod (fried banana), Gluay Tark (sun dried banana), Gluay Buat Chi (Banana in coconut milk) and much more. I love them all but my favorite got to be Gluay Tak. My aunt often makes them and, from what I’ve tried, I personally think that there is no store who sells more delicious Gluay Tak than hers yet. Whenever I visit her at Chonburi, I never forget to bring them back to my house haha.

    Wow ! Kimmy’s Munchies is on I would love to see more videos from you. And it’s true that people consume bananas a lot in each day. Especially in Thailand, people try to adapt bananas in many desserts such as Gluay Ping , Gluay Buach Chee and Gluay Tak.

    Woah! Grilled bananas with sweet syrup is one of my favorite Thai sweets even though i’m on a diet hahaha. Thai people love to use bananas as a main ingredient to do Thai dessert such as grilled banana, fried banana and banana with coconut milk. We can easily find this kind of dessert on a market or even on a street market, it’s cheap and yummy!

    Omgg! Kimmy’s Munchies is my favorite channel about food. I don’t like to eat the bananas but Grilled bananas is an exception hahaha. I’m usually buy Grilled bananas around the area that i live so next times i will try the place that she recommended. Most of Thai people love to eat this as a dessert or when they don’t know what to eat. Kimmy’s Munchies always review the interesting food, i like it!

    woww, grilled banana is my favourite dessert of all time, it easy to find bananas in Thailand that’s why grilled banana is a popular dessert here, not only grilled bananas that are famous but another kind of dessert from banana such as fried banana, kluay buat chi (banana in coconut milk) and many other kinds is also popular in Thailand too!

  • Ornvipa Assavanig

    Grilled Banana is important in the sauce that put in it and I like to try to compare many of Gluay Ping shop. One of my favorite is the grill banana shop at Pho temple, Ayuthaya that sell by old women and the taste is very gooddddddd

    This Gluey-Ping is awesome! When I was little, I saw my mom having lots of Gluey-Ping and she wanted me to try it so bad but I wouldn’t. Until few years later, we went to Summakorn Market on Ramkamhaeng Road and my mother bought Gluey-Ping again. I just want to know why my mother is so addicted to Gluey-Ping. Once I tried it, it has my heart. It was not too sweet and not oily comparing to other kinds of production such as Gluey-Tak and Gluey-Tod. Now my mom and I generally go to that market twice a month and every single time we were there, we must buy Gluey-Ping home.

    Oh! this channel makes me hungry again! Lol I love how Thai people adapt banana in dessert. This Grilled Banana or Gluay-Ping is definitely one of my favorite street food. It is much better when having with the sauce. Thanks for sharing this. I will try to check it out!
