Banapple is Bery Bery Good

I have eaten at Banapple a few years ago and I did not really get a chance to savor it because my kid was still small and a handful. Now that he is already 4, he can be asked to sit still and eat  (but I still fix a spoonful) After attending mass at Santuario de San Jose in Greenhills, my sis and her hubby treated the grannies (including us) dinner in celebration of Grandparent's Day. They chose to eat at Banapple, which is located at the 2nd floor of Northgate Building, Connecticut Street, Greenhills. You can even walk from the church to the restaurant. 
The Banapple branch was quite small that's why we have to wait for our turn to be seated and there were 10 of us. 
Instead of waiting for the people inside to finish eating, we decided to just stay outside so we can finally have dinner because we were sooo hungry. 
I ordered Baked Fish Gratinee with Scalloped Potatoes which is worth P175. This scrumptious dish is served with white rice and buttered kernel corn. The fish was perfectly baked and the potatoes were soft so my kid had an easy time eating this dish. He also love corn so that was like a bonus for him. The cream sauce and mozzarella crumb added zest and flavor on the fish and potatoes. 
Dining at Banapple won't be complete without getting a taste of their specialty dessert the Banoffee Pie. We ordered 3 slices of the pie and just shared it. It costs P85 per slice which is quite affordable. 
My kid loved this dish and end up eating all the bananas smothered with caramel while I settle for the crumb and whipped cream with chocolate shavings. LOL. 
Finally, I was able to appreciate the meal in Banapple and so did my son...who said, that it was "bery bery good!" Banapple is now one of my favorite restaurants because the price is reasonable, the serving is huge and the food is really delicious. I can't wait to go back there and try their other dishes. I was lucky with my choice because my kid and I liked it a lot. 
Here is the Banapple Menu for those who would like to try it and I do highly recommend it.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe.
