I mentioned in my last post that my
friend and I had dinner in Banapple in Greenhills.
I haven’t been posting about it
the other times I went there because
I didn’t have my camera with me.
It’s one of our favorite restaurants
but they do have dishes that disappointed us as well.
On my last visit to their Katipunan branch
I tried the classic Pecan Pie and I am never ordering that again.
It’s a total sugar bomb. I can’t taste anything other than the sugar.
It didn’t even have a crust on the bottom
just pure gooey sugar + caramel with some candied pecans on top.
It was toothache inducing. I don’t know anything about baking
but I know that that Pecan Pie is abhorrent.
Here’s what we had for dinner:
Herb Chicken Rolls for my friend
(This is our favorite but I opted to order something else because I had this the last time I went to Banapple)
and Salpicao Rafael for me.
The moment I tried this, I knew I should have ordered
It doesn’t taste like Salpicao at all.
It’s like Beef Teriyaki except for the hint of bagoong in it.
It would have been okay if the meat wasn’t tough and rubbery.
Most of it were edible but some were just too tough
it’s like chewing on rubber tires.
Another addition to my never order again list.
Honey Crunch Slice
close up 🙂
I have a thing for sponge cakes
and this is the first time I’ve seen this cakse in Banapple
so of course it’s what I ordered. 😀
It was good!
I thought it tastes to familiar on my first bite.
I kept mulling over it until I realized what it tasted like.
The icing isn’t your typical sugar and egg white mix
but creamier and even sticky like yema.
This is my favorite cake in Banapple. 🙂
It was our first time in Banapple GH.
The ambience is better than their main branch
and in Morato because it isn’t so crowded and
you won’t feel like you have to leave immediately after eating because there are
no customers waiting for tables to be cleared.
That’s all for today.
