Cravings and Foodgasm:Banapple

11:29:00 AM


Me and my partner usually have our breakfast at Banapple Ayala Triangle since it is the closest to our work place. They serve rice meal, pasta, salad, sandwich, pies and cakes. The place is not that big and can accommodate less than 40 people inside but they also have tables and chairs set up outside. 




During peak seasons like Valentines Day and Christmas season, they have extra chairs and tables set up in front of the store so they can accommodate more customers.
 

Here is an updated copy (as of 2016) of their menu courtesy of Banapple:






Here are some of their must try:


Pastas (Served with Pesto Bread)




Trio of Sausages Fettuccine

Protein-packed pasta of crumbles chorizo, garlic longganisa, and Hungarian sausage, tossed in garlic, parmesan cheese, and a very light cream sauce. Priced at 215 PHP, the Trio of Sausages Fettuccine is a bang for the buck! A plateful could serve 2 people (depending on the appetite). As for the two of us, we weren't able to finish the whole plate not because we didn't like it but because their serving is so huge that we got to take it home. At 215 pesos? You got fresh, huge meal and your money is worth it.


Pasta Verde

A rich blend of choped basil, olive oil ad  pecans, served with al dente penne pasta good for one person. Priced at 200 PHP, it is perfect for pesto pasta lovers, not too heavy and oily, perfectly combined with pesto bread. You may add Parmesan cheese or a dash of salt to add more taste.


Fettuccine Magnifico

Pasta at its simplest yet finest! Al dente fettuccine toasted in fried garlic, olive oil, and parmesan cheese. Priced at 200 PHP, it is not your average fettuccine. It tastes better with Parmesan cheese and also good for sharing.


Lasagna Roll-Ups

Herbed cream and parmesan cheese fill al dente lasagna wide strips, are rolled up, and smothered with classic tomato meat sauce and mozzarella cheese. Priced at 210 PHP, Lasagna Roll-Ups is definitely one of our favorites. Its classic tomato meat sauce is heaven on earth, you'll surely crave for more. The serving is huge plus it is really heavy, perfect for twoor even three person sharing.



Baked Creamy Cheesy Penne

A well-loved dish of luscious white cheese sauce and meaty tomato sauce, with al dente penne pasta and  sautéd Hungarian sausage. Price at 215 PHP, good for one or two person sharing, you will definitely love it's unique white cheese sauce and tomato sauce combination and tastes better with a dash of chili powder. 


Fettuccine Jacintha

A delightful take on classic carbonara,made even richer with special herbs. Priced at 200 PHP, everyone will surely love this carbonara upgrade also good for two person sharing.


Entrees


Bacon Fried Chicken Steaks with Milk'shroom gravy

Crisp chicken fillets smothered in a creamy milk and mushroom gravy, topped with yummy bacon pieces, served with corn relish. Priced at 205 PHP, chicken lovers will definitely love its combination with the mushroom gravy and bacon that balances everything. 


Hearty Heavenly Breakfast (served all day)

Succulent glazed porkloin ham steak, paired with parsley eggs and choice of pesto bread or garlic rice. Priced at 205 PHP, we opted garlic rice. The taste is heavenly indeed, not too sweet and not too salty plus the creamy egg is delicious. The porkloin steak is gigantic, good for two person sharing.



Glazed Pork Tocino with Creamed Parsley Eggs

Lean and succulent glazed meat, served special creamy eggs. Priced at 215 PHP, definitely my favorite. I love tocino and Banapple's glazed pork tocino is the best so far. The creamy egg is cooked to perfection and it's saltines suits well with the sweetness of the tocino, balance combination indeed. Good for one person or sharing, glazed pork tocino is at the top of my list.



Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs

Extra tender country ribs grilled in hickory smoke, glazed with homemade hickory barbecue sauce, served with corn relish. Priced at 220 PHP, the hickory smoked barbecue is deliciously satisfying but quite messy to eat. The corn relish is a balanced combination plus I wonder what's the secret ingredient behind it's rich barbecue sauce. You will surely crave for more once you try it.



Pan-Fried Porkloin with Herbed Mushoom Gravy

Juicy porkloin strips seasoned with special herbs, pan-fried in olive oil, smothered in thick mushroom and herb gravy, served with glazed carrot. Priced at 210 PHP, the serving is enough for one person. The porkloin is tender and the mushroom gravy is a perfect combination.


Hungarian Chorizo Al Ajilo


A power pairing of Hungarian sausage and chorizo slices, sautéd in lots of garlic and hint of herbs, served with creamy eggs. Priced at 215 PHP, it is worth every bite. The Hungarian sausage is tasty and not too oily. Good for one or two person sharing, you will definitely love the light kick of garlic.



Banapple Meatloaf

Priced at 215 PHP, Banapple Meatloaf is the newest addition to the menu. Special meatloaf with Banapple's secret gravy served with corn relish. Like others, this is also good for 2 people sharing. 


Baked Fish Gratinee with Scalloped Potatoes

Priced at 215 PHP, this succulent white fish baked in cream sauce with a hint of mustard on bed of herbed scalloped potatoes, crowned with a mozzarella-crumb topping, served with white rice and corn relish. The mozzarella and the scalloped potatoes is a good combination plus the baked fish is really tender you want to eat more.

Salads


Banapple's House Salad

Mixed greens with corns, cucumber and bell pepper bits, crumbled banana chips, honey peanuts and shredded mozzarella, drizzled with balsamic-ceasar dressing. Priced at 160 PHP, I think I have a new favorite salad. The balsamic-ceasar vinegar is perfect plus the corn and mozzarella combination is a delight.



Sandwiches (Piled on Wheat Bread, served with Potato Chips)


Crunchy Chicken Fillet and Bell Pepper Sandwich

Crispy and juicy chicken breast fillet, paired with pan fried bell peppers and sliced onions, layered on crisp lettuce, cucumber, slices and melted cheese, drizzled with garlic herbed mayo. Priced at 165 PHP, the crunch chicken fillet and bell pepper sandwich is worth every bite. Good for two person sharing, the chicken breast fillet is proportionally cut so you can hold and eat the sandwich easily.


Fluffy Pancakes

Blueberries 'N Cream Crunch Pie

Priced at 130 PHP per slice, it's perfect for blueberry and cream lovers. It's delicious like all other cakes but if you want to eat more pie than cream, I suggest you try something else.

Cookies

Priced at 80 PHP per piece, just like the chocolate crinkles, double chocolate chip oatmeal cookie is a must have. The chocolate chip did the trick since it has the right amount of sweetnes that compliments the oatmeal cookie.

Savory Pies

Trivia: Banapple had large pies before priced at 90PHP but I guess they replaced them with smaller size pies they now called Junior Pies.


Jr. Herb Cheese and Mushroom Pie

Priced at 50 PHP per piece, this is my personal favorite. The cheese and mushroom is a sure hit combination. 


Jr. Savory Tuna Pie

Priced at 50 PHP per piece, junior savory tuna will surely satisfy anyone's craving. (Tho Jollibee's Tuna pie tastes better for me).


Jr. Creamy Chicken Pie

Priced at 50 PHP per piece, junior creamy chicken pie is perfect for people who's watching their weights.

Since we are regular customers and we love Banapple, I will give hem a 10 out of 10 rating. I even considered franchising one, why? They offer delicious food and quality service. All their food from pasta, cake to entrees are all served nicely plus in huge servings, definitely not over priced. 

If you wish to visit them at Ayala Triangles in Salcedo Village, Makati City, they are open from 7AM to 10PM. You may also call for reservations at (02) 756-6275. If you are going to have your breakfast at Banapple (Ayala Triangle), we suggest you go as early as 6:45AM as you might be surprise on to how long the queue is.

Updated: July 2016

Since I am now based in BGC, I need to satisfy my Banapple craving and good thing the nearest branch from my new office is at Market Market. It's bigger and spacious compared to Ayala Triangle Branch.



They have separate corner for sandwiches cakes and pastries. 





Since they have a new entree, I tried it and it was delicious.



I can't wait to bring my partner here. If you're around BGC and want to try Banapple, they are located at Ground Floor, Market! Market!,Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
