This is where it all started! Banapple when they debut years ago got throngs of patrons that last for months. Lately they still have these packed venues but not as it were. On a visit here after an event, the place was rather empty. Restaurant life?
We bumped into a feast that day since most of their offerings looked and sounded good. We were only 5 and ended ordering for 10. We all agreed Banapple hasn’t lost its charm yet and this was evident in three of their dishes.
First was their Breakfast Ham with Scrambled Egg. This plate had full of life. The ham’s overwhelming taste matched too well with creamy eggs and warm garlic rice. This disappeared too fast and I felt sad when it did.
One of the softest Baby Back Ribs is found here. And what made it better was their wonderfully curated spiced barbecue sauce.
Last was another meat dish that all of us rushed to get their share, Salpicao. It was tender, tasty and garlicky all in one. I can sense the time spent to make this classic piece a continuous favorite.
Other notable dishes were their Penne Pasta in meat sauce as well as the Pesto version. For cake, signature Banapple still gets the vote for its awesome ratio of crust, bananas and cream.
