Food ordered: Salpicao Rafael / Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs
Value for money: 5
Overall Rating: 4/5
HER FOOD BITES: I have been going to Banapple since they were still known as a cake place and they just had one branch in Katipunan. They're cakes are just heavenly! I've tried almost everything from their Banoffee Pie to their Cheesecakes and they have never disappointed me. They always just have the right size and sweetness to suit one's taste. I have always tried to look for hickory ribs that tasted like the ones in Costco in the US, and theirs just hit the spot! Ever since I have tried their Hickory Ribs, it is what I always order whenever I drop by Banapple. With the sweetness of its hickory sauce, the tenderness of the meat that falls off so easily, and the huge serving (I believe is good for 2!), what more can I ask for? :)

HIS FOOD BITES: I only got to visit Banapple some time last year and ever since the Hickory Smoked Barbeque Country Ribs touched my lips, I instantly fell in love with it (No need to get jealous, R. I love you both). It had the right mix of smokiness and sweetness. The serving is really huge considering its price. I have been ordering and recommending it to all of my friends since that day. I tried the Salpicao Rafael and it was really good. It had a garlic-y taste combined with a bit of sweetness. As much as I enjoyed the salpicao, I would still go back to the Hickory Ribs that stole my heart. If you also like iced teas, give their Homemade Iced Tea a shot. Would definitely be back here soon.
About the venue: The venue is reminiscent of a country style house. Their Katipunan branch has function rooms for small gatherings. Parking is available in front the venue, but since Banapple has a lot of customers, there might be times when you would need to park along the road.
