Banapple Pies and Cheesecakes

One of the locations where I work would be at McKinley Hill and it has always been a challenge to find places to eat because of the limited food choices. Gladly, the situation has been improving with the addition of numerous restaurants just across the street (The Venice Piazza) and a new line of restaurants that opened along McKinley hill (going to C5).

One of the restaurants along that new line would be Banapple. I’ve always thought that Banapple was a place to eat cakes only but I was wrong because they do serve rice meals and pasta dishes. I have to mention that the place looks very bright and have this homey feeling. If you look at it from far away, you can mistake it for a two-story house instead of a restaurant.

Banapple Chicken Breast Parmigiano

Banapple Chicken Breast Parmigiano – PHP 200

Tender fillets of chicken breast encrusted in a Parmesan crumb mixture topped with a rich stewed tomato sauce and melted mozzarella; served with glazed butter carrots

If it wasn’t for the name “chicken breast“, they could have fooled me if they called this lasagna. The ingredients, the taste and the feeling were very similar. The tomato sauce and cheese goes pretty well to give flavor to the very tender chicken.

Banapple Salpicao Raphael

Banapple Salpicao Raphael – PHP 205

Tender cubes of rib eye steak and sliced mushrooms, perfectly seasoned and smothered in garlic pieces and their special brown sauce; served with glazed butter carrots

They got me at “rib eye steak“. This wasn’t the usual taste of salpicao that I like but instead, it tastes more like beef tapa. I guess it had something to do with their special brown sauce which stuck to the beef giving it a harder texture.

Lastly, we had our dessert!

Banapple Fudgymudgy Mud Pie

Banapple Fudgymudgy Mud Pie – PHP 110

Yum yum! Except for the white creamy layer and the crust; everything had something to do with chocolate! I love chocolate and I certainly loved how their Fudgymudgy Mud Pie tasted. My fork would go pierce the top layer then traverse down each layer until I hit the crust; then I would pull to break it apart then deliver it to my waiting mouth. My only concern about this was the crust was too hard to break. I would need to exert effort in order to get a little slice which defeats the purpose of relaxing when eating desserts.

Overall, it was a great meal at Banapple. They serve delicious food in huge servings at very affordable prices. No wonder it’s always jam-packed especially their Ayala Triangle branch.
