The famous US dining chain is finally in the Philippines! Much credit goes to Global Restaurant Concepts (the same group that operates IHOP) for bringing Applebee’s over to Bonifacio Global City. At last, there’s no need to travel to the US to satisfy your Applebee’s craving.
With its big apple signage, you definitely won’t miss Applebee’s. It now occupies the spot where Mad For Garlic used to be.
Upon entering the main door of Applebee’s, you are welcomed by comfortable lounge chairs that are both welcoming and homey. This is where the bar is and where the concoctions are made.
Applebee’s interior reminds me of IHOP and CPK – delightfully spacious, making it perfect for families or large groups.
And dimly lit for that feel of privacy.
Let’s get to the food, shall we? At Applebee’s, expect handcrafted burgers, sandwiches, salads, ribs and steaks – dishes that Applebee’s are known for in the US. Good thing I came from an errand in the morning that made me work up an appetite! I arrived really hungry!
A ton of dishes to enjoy at Applebee’s
Sweet Potato Fries and Dips (Php195)
These deep fried sweet potatoes were the bomb! Applebee’s serves this with BBQ bacon ranch, maple sauce & Sriracha chili-lime dip. Sweet-salty and addicting!
3-pcs. Wonton Taco (Php175)
Oh man! I got hooked immediately! Spicy chicken-stuffed wonton shells with coleslaw and cilantro just hits the spot! Applebee’s wonton shells are house-made and cooked on the spot. I can eat serving after serving of this!
STEAKS AND RIBS
Pork Ribs (Half: Php650 / Full: Php950)
These monstrous BBQ pork ribs marinated in Applebee’s special house sauce were perfectly grilled and seasoned beautifully. It falls of the bone effortlessly and smothered with sauce that sticks to the fingers and the sides of your lips. I went crazy over these mouthwatering ribs!
This Applebee’s specialty is served with corn on the cob, french fries and coleslaw with a choice of honey BBQ sauce, smoky chipotle, spicy sweet Asian chili and Korean BBQ sauce.
Triple Bacon All-In Burger (Php495)
Bacon in bacon on BBQ bacon ranch and cheddar cheese served on a toasted brioche bun. Whoa! That’s quite a bacon party! The patty was juicy without being fatty with crispy bacon strips for additional and texture. This is one perfectly cooked burger!
