Banapple’s Forgettable Fettucine

Somebody please tie me to my office chair so I won’t walk to Ayala Triangle Gardens anymore! Most of my food posts are about the restaurants lining up there, noh? ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, Pia and I met up for lunch last Monday. She works at the Enterprise Center so I had the perfect excuse to select the Gardens for our date. Harhar. Actually, it was because I didn’t want to walk too far away from Citibank Center with my four-inch heels on. ๐Ÿ˜›

We braved the heat and dined al fresco at Banapple. It was scorching hot but good thing we were right beside a huge fan to cool us down. It was blowing our hair out of place though.

The not-so-magnificent Fettucine Magnificoย ย (Php170)

Well aware of their big servings, I opted for a pasta dish thinking portions would be smaller. But no, my plate of Fettuccine Magnifico (Php170) could have been easily shared by two people.ย Portions-wise, I give them two thumbs up. But in terms of taste? Err. You might as well pry my thumbs open because I didn’t like it at all.

While I knew it was just a mix of fried garlic, olive oil and parmesan cheese, I still ordered it because I assumed it would taste as fine as Pasto’s version.ย I think I poured most of their chili flakes on my plate but did nothing to improve the taste.

Besides that, the fettucine itself was poorly cooked. I found three (or was it four?) fettucine squished together. Aha! They didn’t stir it as it was boiling too because some were burnt.

It really was a bad and forgettable Banapple experience. Boo! Methinks Banapple should stick to its guns–pastry.

    You are too quick to judge on their line of pasta dishes. You should try their 3-sausages pasta. It’s the best pasta dish of Banapple in my opinion.

    • Is that pasta good? Maybe I’ll try one pasta dish the next time I find myself in Banapple again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I super love this pasta recipe. But I don’t like their Jacintha. I think it depends on your taste.
