So brother treated lunch on a Sunday. My brother was so weird that he would only opt to eat at either Frankie’s or Banapple. Every time he would only have those two as an option. As much as I know that there is a person of habit, I mean this is way beyond hilarious!!! (Coming from me who would always opt to try something new every time.) We’re just totally opposite! It was his treat so fiiiiine, he gets to decide. 128548🙄 haha.

Anyhooo since I’m ‘trying to eat healthy’, I just opted to have a salad. I realized I have never tried their salad before as I would always go for their rice meals, pastas or cakes.

Having no idea at all, I went for a salad that I felt I have a connection with (lol)- the Asian Sunshine Salad. 128514 Additionally, it’s the only salad that comes with crabstick shreds. 128524 It also comes with crispy wonton skin (which I didn’t pay attention to upon ordering).

I was surprised that it was actually good. It did match it’s description of having a burst of flavors and texture. I loved it! I mean it seemed like the ingredients used were fresh like the greens, sliced cucumber, and oranges. I honestly do not eat cucumber, but because of the honey-sesame oil dressing that enhanced the salad’s flavor, and the crispy wonton skin that made it more interesting, I was able to. 128514

I just hoped that they didn’t put a lot of the dressing because it turned out to be really sweet and kind of lost the balance and the purpose of the fact that someone is trying to have a healthy lifestyle. Lol. I meant they literally put like a soup instead of just a ‘dressing’ on the salad. Haha!

I will definitely come back for this or probably try their other greens. I will also make sure to request that the dressing be served seperately. 128514128514128514

On other hand, brother and boyfie opted for rice meals - Salpicao Rafael and Sirloin Garlic Beef Tapa which are equally good! 128076🏻128076🏻128076🏻
Wasn’t able to take a photo of the Tapa anymore because boyfie was HANGRY na. Haha.

Somewhat I know why my brother loves going back here. Certainly the value for money is note-worthy because of the serving size and not to mention that the food is fairly delicous. But still!!!! 128530128530128530

I met up with two of my college batchmates (most of the people we invited weren't able to come, so we ended up with an intimate group) last Friday at SM North Edsa. We didn't have any plans on where we plan to have our dinner so we walked around The Block, but they weren't able to find anything they like. After checking the mall directory, they finally decided on eating at Banapple.

When we got there, all the seats in Banapple's airconditioned area were occupied, so we initally planned to have our seats in the al fresco area, but it was too warm. Fortunately, one of the waitresses told us we can sit inside Sandwicheese (their sister company), and that we can cross order. 128076 So here's what we got:

✔ For me: Salpicao Rafael (Php 245) - 11088110881108811088
At first sight, I thought to myself: "Uh oh. I might not get full with the amount of food on my plate." But after each bite, the hunger swiftly eased away. 128076 I love the sauce / glaze they tossed the rib eye steak cubes in, as it has the right mix of sweet and salty. It had the proper amount of garlicky taste, not too underwhelming, nor too overpowering. Though at some point, the stickiness and sweetness got to me, so it became a bit cloying. Some beef pieces were also too tough, probably because of the ligaments marbled in each beef cube. The garlic rice matched perfectly with the taste profile of the meat, and the buttered carrots helped cleanse my palate.

✔ For Reginald B: Hickory Smoked Barbequed Country Ribs (Php 245) - 11088110881108811088
The serving size for this was quite big, so for me, it was instantly sulit. 128077 I also noticed that the meat seems juicy, even when I haven't tasted it yet. Upon tasting it, I found out that it had that smokey taste that suits the well-cooked meat of the ribs. 128523 It was super juicy and extremely tender, it was such a pleasure to eat!

✔ For S: Lasagna Roll-Ups (Php 235) - 110881108811088
For cheesy and creamy dish lovers, this one's for you! Each plate comes with two roll-ups, stuffed with herbed cream and parmesan cheese, and smothered with tomato meat sauce, and more cheese! 128584 As for me, I find it too heavy and cloying for my taste. I felt like I was already full after trying just one bite. 128517 It must also be eaten while hot, befote the pasta noodles dry out and the filling becomes cloying.

Oh and we also got an order of their Nachos from Sandwicheese, which was okay, but nothing spectacular. I failed to get a photo of it, sorry! 128546

Service was not that good, it was a struggle to ask for service water, or even the bill. None of the servers were smiling! Most of them give off a snobbish vibe.

Overall, it was an okay experience. Food were mostly filling and affordable. I hope they step up their service, though.

Last friday, March 31 I wasn't expecting to eat here BUT...

When I dropped by at SM Sky Garden to pass through going Trinoma, I saw a line of people heading to Banapple. Then I realized, hey! They got a 1 day slice the price promo that day!

Then I told myself, enough of cravings. I went to Trinoma to buy something & to meet a friend. We were starving. Then I told her if she's willing to go to SM since we are at Trinoma. Then she told me she wants to eat at Banapple too! 128516

We ate Fettuccine Jacintha, Cadbury Cheesecake and buffalo wings from Sandwicheese 128523128155

I also lined up outside to grab a slice of both the apple crumble for 65/slice & Banoffe Pie for 75/slice. Who wouldn't want to grab the chance right?

But since it was around 10pm, the apple crumble I got was literally "crumble" as in it was still warm and crumbled. No sign of triangular shape or slice of a cake. 🙁 the banoffe was small. I guess they ran out of stocks since there were plenty of people who wants to buy their signature cakes.

But then, I still got a happy tummy! Always a fan of this resto 12851610084

Belated Happy 10 years old Banapple! 127820127822

Why I frequent Banapple on weekends is beyond me? Got myself pasta and a slice of cake which I finished by myself. This branch is bigger than the one in Makati, the wait here does not take that long as compared to the Makati branch.

Had lunch here one weekend with the family. Surprisingly, the place wasn't as packed as usual, where we used to have to line up for a long time before we were seated.

My family and I ordered the following: Lasagna Roll-ups,
Garlic Beef Tapa with Creamed Parsley Eggs, Bacon Fried Chicken Steaks with Grilled 'Shroom Gravy, and Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs. Most of our orders were served quickly, except for the ribs where we had to wait for at least 20 minutes. My mom had to eat off food from our plates as she was already hungry, and was almost already full when her order was served. I believe there was a delay for that specific dish at that time, as the folks from the next table who ordered the ribs also had impatient, hungry looks in their faces.

One more thing I noticed was that the serving sizes got smaller. For instance, the lasagna roll-ups I ordered used to be too much for one person, but this time it was just right (or slightly too much) for me. Either that, or my appetite got bigger. Haha. 128553

Finally, we had a slice of cake for dessert. Forgot the name, but it had a Choc-Nutty flavor. Quite good--the flavor was rich but not too overwhelmingly sweet.

Overall, it was a good dining experience. Loved their pasta dish and the tapa was one of the best I've tasted, especially that it was perfectly partnered with the creamy, scrambled egg 128522 Banapple is still a restaurant I'd come back to, to get my pasta and dessert fix 128077🏼

Banapple never fails to draw a crowd. When we had dinner there it was packed luckily we were able to get a table outside.

I ordered beef salpicao which the serving got smaller compared to before.

I haven't eaten in the place yet, but my brother got me a cake for my birthday. It's heavy like about 2 kg. When I opened the box, it has a greeting with my name on it written in white and red. The cake was sooo good I almost hoard it Lol. The sweetness is right and even if you slice a small serving, you will be satisfied. I think the flavor is choco mousse, I don't remember haha thumbs up

Banapple never fails to satisfy.

Our favorites are the ribs, chicken and bacon, and of course the cakes. Affordable with great flavors.

This cake is a halloween special.

The only downside here is the crowd. Its almost always full. Still enjoyable though.

It's always a two thumbs-up when I eat at banapple. I usually order the trio of sausage fettuccine pasta but I wanted to try something new. I got the lasagna rolls and corn chowder. I was surprised with their chowder, lots if corn and veggies and it tasted so good. Lived the lasagna but I wanted a little more meat sauce.

After church last week, Mark and I went to Banapple for late lunch.

We ordered:

1. Pan-fried porkloin with herb mushroom gravy (P210): I'm very particular with how I want meat cooked. On my scale of rock hard and melts-in-my mouth, the porkloin strips were above so-so 128077🏻 I also liked how the "gravy" (herb mushroom) tasted sweet-salty 128077🏻

2. Salpicao rafael (P225): This was Mark's dish. Again, it came with above so-so tenderness of the rib-eye steak 128077🏻 Mark is a sucker for sweet-and-sour dishes, and this dish delivered.

3. Iced coffee (P90): I was actually surprised when the waitress told me that it does not come with milk 128561 but when I tasted it, it wasn't the bitter black coffee that I expected.

4. Cherry chocolate truffle cheesecake (P135): As I've said in my previous posts, I'm not fond of cheesecakes. But I can make an exception with this one because the cheese flavor blended well with the choco truffle flavor 128077🏻

The resto served us big dishes. The servers were quick to answer to our calls, but were all wearing frowns. They told us that our orders would come after 30 mins 128561128561 but then again, our orders were served after 10 128077🏻 The place was quite crowded since the tables were spaced near one another.

Overall, this branch has landed a spot on my recommendation list 128522
