Bingeing at Banapple

The waiting time in Banapple was worse than our experience in Wee Nam Kee. Grabe, 1 1/2 hours. We were just (or ako lang yata hahaha) deadset on eating there that even if eating in the uncrowded, zero-queue BFAST was the better idea, we just patiently waited for our turn to be seated in Banapple.

Good thing, everything was fast and efficient once we were already inside.

Enzo was very hungry but he still had the energy to pose. The monster’s not smiling though. :p

We got their homenade iced tea (sarap!) and Pepsi (sad, hindi coke products). They also have shakes/smoothies, but neither one of us wanted any last night.

Enzo chose the the Migs Gallabergher, which according to the menu is  a ” juicy and herby all beef patty on mixed greens, topped with there special garlic-sour cream-barbecue sauce and lots of sliced onions, and blanketed by melted cheese and gooey mozzarella”. Enzo said it’s delicious, but thought the pattie was overcooked.

Baked Fish Gratinee with Scalloped Potatoes was my main dish of choice. Menu describes it as a “succulent white fish baked in cream sauce on bed of herbed scallpoed potatoes, crowned with a mozzarella crumb topping, served with white rice and corn relish.” It did not look appetizing at all. I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy it, but I still did. Well, what could go wrong with a white fish-cheese-potato combo anyway? I would have liked it better with greens than with rice. The fish tasted too “dainty” to be fully appreciated with an almost tasteless sidedish. I only appreciated the fish gratinee with rice when I put a dash of chili flakes.

Much as I love their bestseller, Banoffee, I opted to get something else. I took a chance in their Apple Caramel Crumble Pie. It’s almost perfect! Bakit almost lang? Sobrang init when it was served. Napaso ang ngala-ngala ko. Hehehe. But seriously, it’s something I’d want to eat again (with caramel macchiato!!!)  or give as pasalubong to my mom.

Enzo’s dessert of choice was the Strawberry (something something) Cheesecake. Sorry, I can’t remember the complete name, but it’s not the strawberry cheesecake with amaretto. The receipt says it’s Starry Berry. LOL. Anyway, like the apple crumble, I liked it. Enzo loved it!

Another thing he loved was…

the Chicken Pie with Potato Salad. This is what my friends and I always get when we’re in Banoffee Katipunan, and I told Zo that his visit in Banapple won’t be complete without eating this chunky chicken culinary masterpiece.

Here’s me looking very happy with my food.

FYI: I can eat everything (and more) in front of me. Oo na. Matakaw na.

FYI #2: I don’t know where my stomach’s annex is either. :p


listening to: nothing
