Ginanggang, guinanggang, or ginang-gang (Cebuano: [ginaŋ'gaŋ]) is a snack food of grilled skewered bananas brushed with margarine and sprinkled with sugar. It originates from the island of Mindanao in the Philippines.[1] It literally means "grilled" in Cebuano.[2]

Ginanggang is made from a type of banana in the Philippines called saba (a cooking banana also known as the Cardaba banana). The banana is peeled, skewered and then grilled over charcoals. When the outer surface is lightly charred, it is then taken off the grill, brushed with margarine, and sprinkled with sugar. It differs from banana cue in that the banana is actually grilled on the stick. The sugar used on it is also white table sugar and is not caramelized (being applied after cooking).[3][4]

A "Ginanggang Festival" is celebrated in honor of San Isidro Labrador every May 2 in Baranggay Poblacion, Tubod, Lanao del Norte.[5][6]
