Fingerling bananas are everywhere on the streets and markets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It can be argued that one has not truly eaten bananas until one has sampled one from South East Asia – four inches long and intensely flavorful. One can find bunches of green bananas dangling from wood frames and strapped on motorbikes on their way to market, and one can find them hanging at the entrances of Khmer weddings spray painted gold and silver. Found on the streets and in the markets are men and women who peel, skewer and grill bananas. The bananas form a spotted skin that tastes slightly salty complimenting the sweet interior. I think Curious George would approve.
