Thai banana pancake or what is locally known as roti gluay is a very popular dessert in Thailand.

When I had my vacation in Krabi, Thailand, I tried to order banana pancake in a restaurant. From then on, in every meal that I had, I would always order Thai banana pancake the whole time I was in Krabi.
