banapple -- More than A Sweet 'Lil Thang (And Sandwicheese!, Too)

banapple is best perhaps known for their delicious banoffee pie.  Well, that's what I usually associate them with; most especially since it's been a birthday staple treat, brought to the office by those lucky enough to be living near or driving through it's premises (mainly those living in the North Metro Manila area).

But what used to be a once a year treat is now made more accessible to those from all around (whee!!!) by banapple's aggressive expansion.  From the original location in Quezon City, they have since opened 7 more!  Now that's progress... uhmm... a successful expansion.

banapple pies & cheesecakes

With their great expansion efforts, banapple has also expanded their offerings, including tons of tasty, savoury meals to their repertoire.  They're more that just a sweet face, honey.  'Cause now they're bringing out the big guns by way of their savoury dished, too!

Lasagna Roll-Ups (Php195)

Lasagna Roll-Ups

Delicious Lasagna served in quite an unusual way from what you'd normally expected this dish to be prepared in.  Slight change in preparation aside, banapple's Lasagna Roll-Ups is simply a tasty, meaty, and all-around cheesy dish that will have you asking for seconds.

Banoffee pie (Php105 for a slice)

Banoffee Pie

And who in their right mind, could not resist ordering a slice (or 2... preferably more) of their signature Banoffee Pie.  As the name suggests, this is one decadent dessert made with toffee, ripe bananas and a huge layer of cream.  Add some slices of chocolate and you're good to go.  

I usually try to share my sweets with the Little One and the Husband (apparently that's what a good parent is supposed to do daw -- being a good example and all that J), but I just coulnd't help and be a tad slightly a whole lot greedy by trying to finish this piece all by my happy, lonesome self.  Times like this I miss being single with nary of thought of good model behavior-ness.  Yes, I'm bad that way.  J

Iced Tea (Php65)
My list of "Places that Serve the Best House Blend Iced Tea" is growing.  I now add banapple to that ever growing directory.

Don't cha just love a place that tries NOT to serve powered iced tea?  Yum!

Say sandwicheese!  Signature Frankfurter Sandwicheese (Php145) plus 2

The banapple people's newest concept, sandwicheese!, aims to provide customers with delicious, not-your-ordinary-everyday sandwiches and salads with great sauces.  

In banapple's BGC branch, they're located right inside the store, sort of like a lil bro who keeps on following a big sis around.  No complaints here, though, as they serve one heck of a meal!  Specifically their Signature Frankfurther Sandwicheese.

Now for those who love cheese, this is definitely the sandwich for your as this tasty, meaty frankfurter is served with (1) a healthy dose of sundried tomato cream cheese, (2) mozzarella, (3) parmesan, and if that wasn't enough, (4) a gooey melted cheese sauce, as well.  Oh and there's also another special non-cheese sauce.  Put them all together (in a cornmeal bun) and what do you have?  Goodbye diet!  Hello indulgence!  In a word, Yum!

Now you couldn't just eat a dog without fries right?  So make sure to order some of their Classic Skin On Fries (an additional Php80)...

... and a Dalandan Passion Slush (additional Php20).

Sweet!  J

  1. I love Banapple too kaso liit ng branch nila sa ATC tapos lagi pa puno kaya sa iba na lang kami kumakain.

  3. I love their hickory pulled pork and roast beef sandwich!

    1. They have Hickory Pulled Pork? I'll try that next time. =)

  4. Looking at the photos here made me really hungry. Tsk. I hope their expansion reaches Batangas soon. And I mean real SOON. :D

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
