Applebees' Philippines has launched new dishes on their menu and Asians are sure to love it!

Simultaneous to the launch of the new menu items for Applebee's Philippines, they are rolling out a new look menu straight from the USA containing their new brand promise: Serving Up Good Times. They came up with a whole lot of new dishes from the appetizers and pasta, to new sandwiches, seafood creations, and desserts, as well as the new local dishes (yay for rice meals!).

They really have a whole lot of things new on the menu, so these are just some of the new dishes that we were able to try:

Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad. Farm fresh greens, diced cucumbers, feta cheese, and toasted almonds tossed in a creamy mint yogurt dressing topped with spicy grilled shrimp and grilled watermelon cubes. I like the mix of the grilled shrimp and the grilled watermelon. The greens are fresh and give a good crunch with the toasted almonds. Everything just goes well with each other.

Buffalo Chicken Salad. Romaine lettuce and bleu cheese dressing topped with buffalo chicken tenders. I find the mix of buffalo chicken with salad quite creative. There's a spicy-savory contrast to the fresh taste of the salad.

Fried Sweet and Spicy Pickles. Lightly breaded, crispy fried sweet and spicy pickled cucumber slices served with a jalapeño dip on the side.

Calamari. Lightly breaded crispy squid rings served with lemon aioli on the side.

Southern Beef Brisket Quesadilla. Shredded slow-cooked seasoned beef brisket tossed with a chipotle lime salsa and jalapeño dressing. Topped with assorted cheddar cheese in a warm flour tortilla wrap. The beef brisket is really good as well as the salsa and cheese. Delicious.

Grilled Sausage Marinara Pasta. Grilled Schueblig sausage, assorted mushrooms, bell peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, spaghetti noodles sauteed in a savory marinara sauce with select spices.

Spinach Artichoke and Grilled Chicken Cavatappi. Seasoned chicken breast strips and Cavatappi pasta sauteed in a spinach artichoke cream sauce topped with grilled grape tomato halves and fried spinach leaves.

Applebee's Pork Liempo Adobo. Succulent pork belly steaks drizzled in a tasty soy-vinegar sauce topped with crispy fried onions. Served with brown garlic almond fried rice on the side. Glad that they added liempo and rice on the menu. This one is good, but I like the Fiesta BBQ better.

Fiesta BBQ Pork Liempo. Succulent pork belly steaks drizzled with a sweet and savory Asian BBQ sauce topped with colored tortilla strips. Served with Mexi-rice and pico de gallo on the side. Also good. I like this better because of it's sweet side and pico de gallo.

Beetroot Curry Salmon. Ocean fresh Norwegian pink salmon in a beetroot curry sauce topped with colored tortilla strips and fried onions. Served with dried fish coriander rice and greek yogurt on the side.

Teriyaki Balsamic Glazed Salmon. Ocean fresh Norwegian pink salmon basted with a teriyaki balsamic glaze. Served with Mexi-rice and green bean crispers on the side. Well-cooked and tender salmon. The glaze is also amazing.

BBQ Beef Brisket Tacos. Juicy shredded beef brisket tossed in a honey BBQ and Mexi-ranch dressing with signature coleslaw and cilantro in a warm soft taco wrap. Served with seasoned fries on the side. I love the beef brisket and the honey BBQ as well as the onions. This one is good, though my favorite would still be Applebee's Wonton Tacos.

Triple Meat All-In Burger. A meaty combination of USDA Beef burger patty, double smoked bacon, and shredded beef brisket in honey BBQ sauce with cheddar cheese on a toasted Brioche bun. Served with seasoned fries on the side. This one guilty pleasure. Just look at that juicy meat.

Banoffee Cheesecake. Toffee cheesecake on a coffee graham cracker crust drizzled with Dulce de Leche and Hot Fudge sauces then topped with fried banana chips. This is the BEST banoffee cheesecake I've ever had. The best. Love it! Period.

Eastwood is a go to area for me since I live really near. I tried Applebees in the states so I wanted to see what they offered here.

Things I tried :

1 . Bacon Jalapeno Potato Croquettes- This was good but then not as spicy. Because I enjoy spicy food , I wanted it to be more spicy but it's not bad.

2. Quesadilla- This one I loved. It was flavorful and tasty plus it came with two sauce--- I am quite the sauce girl so this would be my pick.

3. Grilled Watermelon Shrimp Salad is a unique dish brought forth by Applebee’s. It is very juicy and sweet because of the watermelon but it suits the overall dish with the shrimp and greens. The shrimp is also cooked with delicious spices making it very juicy and savory as well.

4.

My favorite salad was the Buffalo Chicken. I absolutely adored the taste of the buffalo chicken. It was flavored with just the right amount of spice and it wasn’t overbearing. I would recommend this salad for those of you who visit Applebee’s

We came for the 2nd time coz we really liked the wonton tacos. i think we had better choices during our first time there, like with the ribs, wonton tacos, 3 cheese pasta, the salad, and I forgot the other one. but the 2nd time was bleh. we got again the wonton tacos of course (we got 2 of it right away), but now we opted to try other foods on the menu. like the salmon, which we think was not fresh (at all), it was really "malansa", that was really the deal breaker. the quesadilla burger lacks flavor, just like the shrimp fajitas. it's really sad since our first try there was good aside from their cocktails that basically taste just like fruit juices/shakes coz they really lack the kick of the alcohol. dont get me wrong, the service was good but the food, i dunno. we might not consider going back there soon. :(

to sum it up, the 1st try was good while the 2nd was not even near it. hence the 3 star, maybe for some balance, just to be fair.

btw i dunno whats the reason behind it, but the lighting was really quite dim during our 2nd visit there. it really felt like a bar (a regular bar just for drinking) with that lighting rather than a restaurant.

They had happy hour from 10pm till closing. So we took advantage of it, cocktail drinks for Php89.

Tried Classic Mojito, not bad at all. Great service!

The food is pretty good but quite expensive.

Their wonton tacos were delicious.

Also had their quesadilla burger. It was not bad but it seemed like there was something amiss.

After the movie I went to Applebee's Grill and Bar located at the Eastwood City Walk. The restaurant is at the 2nd floor where the Dairy Queen Blizzard is situated at the ground level.

This is not my first time in Applebee's Grill and Bar, I got to try some of their dishes in BGC branch before but not the burgers. As expected, the spacious place was filled with bulbs, woods and bricks as their main interior. The lights were very warm and bright that gave me good vibes during my visit.

Using my GCs I had Quesadilla Burger for Php525.00 and availed the Happy Hour Promo of their cocktails for Php89.00.

Quesadilla Burger served with Fries - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"The pita/wrapped was toasted perfectly. The burger was cooked the way I said it, "medium well". It's a little bit spicy. The quesadilla burger is good for sharing"

Piña Colada - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"It taste good but I am missing the alcohol content. I can taste the alcohol but it's very light."

The staff provided good service and they were courteous and alert at all times.

It has been my third time to go to this place and it never disappoints!! The ambiance is a chill place where you can have lunch with your family or dinner date with your spouse or even meet your friends for drinks!!

We ordered the Ribs (1 full slab) and it costs P995. This is a good pick if you have a big group as it serves 5 people!

For appetizers we ordered set 1 and 4 and the tacos are to die for 128541 It's spicy and I like spicy!! It's also good for sharing and you'll be able to taste different appetizers too! Appetizers are P495 each.

For pasta, we ordered Spaghetti and the Carbonara. Each was P295 and it was already good for 3!!

For the salad, we ordered the one with the chicken (I forgot the name haha) but it tasted like an Asian salad. It was good and has different textures too!!

The waiters are super friendly and accommodating!! I actually came with my 4year old and they were super patient.

All in all the restaurant is a must try 128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻

Tips:
They currently sell Metrodeal vouchers with 30% off!! Be sure to print them and present before ordering.

They have happy hour that you buy cocktails for P85 (regular price is around P150).

They have an elevator on the side if you do not want to climb the stairs!! 128521

Loved the service here! Our server was just great! He was very friendly and attentive, even suggesting and offering to take our photo.

He also recommended some items on the menu such as the Wonton Taco. It looked boring on the menu photo. I was wrong. It tasted sooo good. The wonton shells were crispy and they were stuffed with spicy chicken and coleslaw which balanced the taste of the chicken. A serving of it contained 4 tacos. I highly recommend trying this out!

Don't get the onion rights though. It was pretty bland.

We liked the fries in our pork ribs and we chose the honey glaze (you can choose from 3 flavors). After some time it tasted too sweet for me but I liked it generally.

We also had nachos, which were just okay, but wouldn't order that again. It was too dry for me. It seemed like chips with a small serving of dip. It has a big serving though.

Loved this place and will definitely go back. I want to try their other items and to eat their wonton tacos again. Yum!

Only ordered the cocktail. Slow service and the drink was too diluted, tasted more like juice.

Oh yes! I will definitely go back here.

I'm kinda lazy to write a review, but tone of the waitress was really nice and very responsive to us so I'd say this is a good place to dine.

Try their quesedilla!

Try their ribs!

Try the Bourbon Street Chicken and Shrimp! (If I got that right) 128522

Try their mudslide! Not on their menu but you can ask and they are still serving it.

The only reason why I gave 1 less start is because there was a group of people who were really loud beside our table. My partner didn't want me to approach them and the staff didn't bother reminding them about basic courtesy at the dinner table. Sorry, just thought they could've at least controlled the situation..

Finally! Applebee's Eastwood is now open 127822127822127822127822

Your neighborhood grill & bar , the way it was always meant to be. Food , drinks & you.

Last Monday was National Heroes Day and it's a holiday so that evening, my family and I went to Eastwood. It's been a while since last time we go to Eastwood. Really dying to try Applebee's Eastwood branch.

The place was nice and there were plenty of seats even if they have a lot of customers. We were seated near the kitchen. Perfect spot so we can view if the food is coming..

We ordered their sampler 3 appetizer. Cheese quesadillas, green beans and wonton tacos. Of all the food that we are here, this is my favorite of them all. Then hubby had the Aglio veggie pasta, we ordered two sets of burgers. 3pleBacon all
In and Hawaiian all in burgers and it comes up with delicious fries. My daughter Adelheid L had flutter nutter milkshake and it has a very nice presentation and tasted so good too.. And for desserts we had two sets of Triple Chocolate meltdown. It's like a lava or molten cake.

Food was good and service was good. Servings is good for two people but the price is not affordable. But for me I enjoyed my Applebee's experience 127822127822127822128077128077128077

This is one of the recently opened restaurants in Eastwood and It was my first try 9786

We tried these Pork Ribs, Cedar Grilled Lemon Chicken and the Oreo Cookie shake.

I liked how the chicken was grilled and tendered, it has a sour taste because of the toppings and the lemon. Of course, aince I'm trying to be healthy this is good as it is under 600 calo only. 128513 (but, cheat day still).

I find the Pork Ribs good, but nothing exceptional. It is not dry, the sauce is good, the pork is tender as well and easy to chew. It comes with coleslaw and fries, not the fast-food-kinda-fries. 128522

Lastly, the Oreo Cookie Shake is very sweet for me but I can still taste the oreos in it, unlike any other which sweetness' overpowers the true flavor. 9786

All in all, good for a date. Amidst being a grill and bar resto, you can still have a chit chat. Also, even though they have a small place in Eastwood, the ambiance is good.

First time to try this place out. Dishes are on the pricey side though. I ordered Cedar Grilled Lemon Chicken (295PHp) on the healthy side dish according to them it's just 600 calories. 128513 Then my sister ordered 4 Cheese Mac & Cheese (385PHp)I tried it and we both agreed we couldn't taste the other cheese flavors on it.

Happy hour between 2pm-7pm. Cocktail drinks for 89PHp.

We got Moonlight Margarita (blue drink) Melon Ball and Classic Mojito. Good mix for the drinks.

First time to eat and i got discount via metrodeal. I ordered the savioty salmon cedar it was good the fish is perfectly cooked for me and the dressing in top i forgot what it is but its so good the veggies siding is perfect match. The triple bacon burger is huge and good it has a unique good taste and the fries is the best i've had. The cheese quesedilla is so soft very light in taste perfectly match with the 2 salsa dips. The dessert triple choco meltdown is to die for very chocolatey and rich that why one order is enough for 3. Overall the foods we ordered are great the place is very nice and good ambiance fast service but bit pricey. Im looking forward to return to taste the other food.
