Food Trip 28: Banapple and Christmas Lights @ the Ayala Triangle Gardens

Bakeshops are more than just cakes, breads and pastries nowadays. Its a trend to see them serving deli dishes such as sandwiches, paninis, coffee and pasta. And oh boy, how Filipinos love to rave about these kinds of deli-cafe-bakeshops. You see it everywhere - from the more common ones like Red Ribbon, Goldilocks to French Baker, Conti's Mom and Tina's and Banapple.

Banapple's branches at Katipunan and Tomas Morato have been making waves ever since they opened a few years back. It's no wonder, they have a killer menu, huge servings at an affordable price. Now they have opened a new branch at The Ayala Triangle Gardens, just behind Philippine Stock Exchange. There are a lot of newly opened restaurants there too, one is Chicken Bonchon which was my real agenda for that particular day. But they were closed (restaurants there are still in a soft opening stage), so I had no choice but to go with Banapple. Well, Banapple is Banapple. What's there to hate?  (You can set aside the nakakaumay factor from having too much of the good stuff)

It was also a treat that day for Makati has once again started the Christmas at the Gardens featuring Parol, a Lights and Sound show which will run all throughout the holiday season.

Wiih!  Banapple and Parol brought out that jolly holiday feeling in me!
How I love Christmas season in the country. :)
