I went on a food tour at the Ayala Triangle Gardens with some fellow bloggers last Dec. 18, 2010.
Our first stop was Banapple. We had their bestseller, Banoffee Pie (P85 per slice / P650 whole, pictured above).
The Banoffee Pie consists of a graham crust, big chunks of sliced bananas, a big layer of whipped cream, and curls of chocolate. I feel that it is very reasonably priced as Banapple doesn’t skimp on any of the ingredients and it’s just divine.
Then we were introduced to Banapple’s newest creation, Banana Starry Berry Custard Cheesecake (P110 per slice / P1030 whole, pictured above). I was surprised that it was cheesecake. When I first tasted it, I thought it was something along the lines of strawberry banapple pie with custard. It has the same graham crust as Banapple Pie, but this time the chunks of sliced bananas are enrobed in sweet custard. There’s also a layer of whipped cream and then some strawberry preserves to top it. It’s also good but I found it a tad too sweet, and I must say that I still prefer the good old Banoffee Pie. I couldn’t really taste the cheese though. :p
I’ve been to Banapple’s Katipunan and Il Terrazo branches and I must say that I find their cakes to be affordable and delicious at the same time. 🙂
