Banapple Pies & Cheesecakes

Posted on

Banapple Pies & Cheesecakes is known mainly for their famous Banoffee pie. So when we had the chance to dine in, I was rather excited to try their main dishes rather than their desserts (yes, this is something very unusual for me).

newly opened Banapple in Greenhills

Finally! There’s Banapple in Greenhills. I remember when I was pregnant how much I craved for a banoffee pie from Banapple, my husband being quite busy with work opted to buy me my coveted banoffee pies from Starbucks instead (there’s a store right across our place) I didn’t complain at all. So now I told him, next time there’s really no excuse to my craving!

Banapple's brewed iced tea

First things first, we immediately ordered for drinks while picking on what to eat. I have to commend on their iced tea, it is now my favorite! the blend’s just right. Perfect drink on a hot summer day!

my kind of color scheme! LOL

feel the vintage-homey ambiance

nifty little decors

So we ate at 2 different Banapple stores, I’ll just combine here the food that we ordered on both events okay? πŸ™‚

spot their menu

Salpicao Rafael 180 Php

This is my 2nd most favorite Salpicao (my 1st I shall reveal soon) coming from a family restaurant. It’s tender & full of flavor (again, sucker for sauce) thanks to it’s beefy goodness sauce. The buttery garlic & mushroom is the icing on the cake for this dish. Yum!

Glazed Pork Tocino w/ Creamy Parsley Eggs 145 Php

In short Tocilog! LOL okay maka-tocino kase ako e so thumbs up for this. You’ll know the pork is fresh (not those you can buy in the groceries) coz it’s tender & you can clearly see through the meat color that it lacks preservatives. Meat was cooked just right (if not, I’d have it sent back para well done) Flavorful tocino, not dry juicy enough to smother the excess glazing on your rice.

Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs 175 Php

The ribs was indeed tender, just like that of the famous ribs restaurant in town. But I gotta say that the hickory barbecue sauce was too flavorful (at least for me & my husband’sΒ palette) Finishing one whole dish all by yourself may make you not want the ribs (or just the hickory sauce) for quite a while. I think this dish is perfect for sharing & pairing with another this (thus, this is our shared dish) Maybe on our next visit, we’ll ask if we can have the ribs with less hickory sauce. πŸ˜‰

Asian Sunshine Salad 130 Php

The salad is indeed full of flavor but I wished there was more greens in it than the crispy wonton skins. That being said, it would’ve been healthier. Just saying.

Savory Longanisa w/ Caramelized Onions 160 Php

This was my brother’s dish, wasn’t able to taste it but he says the longanisa tastes like that of the famous Vigan longanisa. He having an unusual palette, I believe if it passes his standards then it is indeed good. πŸ™‚

Crunchy Chicken Fillet & Bell Peppers Sandwich 140 Php

This is what I ordered since I still was full from our snack that time. The chicken was indeed crispy and the garlic mayo did it’s part in breaking the monotonus flavor of saltiness from the chicken & cheese, yet it was a hearty dish.

desserts= LOVE

Aren’t they divine? We can’t decide as to what to try & my tummy wasn’t really in the mood to cooperate with me so we ended up with our favorite.

ba-no-ffee
