Pinaypay na Saging (Banana Fan Fritters) are slices of banana plantains (saging na saba) coated in batter, deep fried in oil and sprinkled with sugar. For some people they call it Maruya, but in Cebu they call it Pinaypay and in Bicol they call it Sinapot. It is a favorite Filipino afternoon snack.

For some who is not aware, Pinaypay means fan in Filipino language. This banana fritters is shaped like a fan that is why people call it Pinaypay, because they cook it in fan shape fritters. In manila, it is not shaped like a fan compared to Pinaypay in Cebu.
