And actually, before a week during this particular visit, the boyfriend and I were supposed to eat there too, but unfortunately we couldn't find it. We thought it was somewhere in and around the mall. We didn't know it was in Northeast Square along Connecticut St.
Anyway, this time, we came with our friends. :)
Moving on with food, I had Crisp Pork Scallopini with Sour Cream Barbecue Sauce. What I was really shocked about were the huge servings. Yes! They really had huge servings, but it was not a big problem for me since I was a big eater. LOL. I even ordered an extra serving of rice, which in the end, I gave half (or was it more than half) to boyfie. Heehee. Talk about not having breakfast and lunch and it was already past 4PM.

Though they had huge servings, you could still be assured that you would have good food. The pork scallopini were indeed crisp and tender and the sour cream barbecue sauce was mildly sour as it should be. But according to my taste buds, the overall taste was salty. It was not bad salty. Just the right one, I think.
On the other hand, the boyfriend ordered Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs as suggested by his brother John. The latter told us that it was the specialty of Banapple. I believed him because he was always eating at Banapple with his girlfriend and other friends.

I find the dish really great! The ribs are very tender and tastes really nice with the right amount of barbecue sauce. Yeah, the right amount of barbecue sauce because the boyfriend kept complaining about how sweet the dish was. He even told us that he didn't want any desserts because what he was eating was really sweet.

As for me, I'm not really a fan of overly sweet dishes. I always reserve that taste for desserts. And speaking of desserts, after finishing a very hearty meal, I still managed to eat a slice of Strawberry Crunch Cheesecake. And oooh, wasn't it awesome! It has that battling taste of sweetness and saltiness as with cheesecakes. Plus, with the strawberry on top, you could also taste more sourness in it. And oh, did I mention that it was really creamy?
But, the boyfriend was true to his word and didn't order any dessert. KJ noh? It was Banapple's specialty pa naman.
I wasn't really quite knowledgeable about our friends' orders. But I think John ordered the same dish as with the boyfriend and David went for hungarian sausages, not sure though. They got the Blueberry Cheesecake, while David's friend had Banana Starry-Berry Custard Cheesecake.
If you're really hungry and want value for money, go for Banapple. It serves yummy dishes in huge servings. But more importantly, if you want to have a fix for your sweet tooth cravings, you have to taste their cheesecakes! Plus, the atmosphere in the restaurant is really friendly. It's a good hang-out place with friends. :)
