There's always a reason to celebrate at Applebees Philippines

Applebees Philippines brings you bigger, better and more flavorful options, which gives you enough reason to LOOK FOR REASONS to celebrate, hihi! With over 20 dishes to choose from, make sure you get to try the ones with the apple behind each dish when you read through their menu. Now, to be honest, I haven't tried them all, but I did try the ones below. Take a peek at some of the dishes here on my blogpost and get to know my recommendations and favorites too!

Calamari
For appetizers, the Calamari is always a great choice. Enjoy the textures of perfectly breaded and fried squid underneath a bed of fried wonton skins. Another fried treat are Applebee's Sweet and Spicy Pickles, which is also breaded and fried to perfection, with each bite having a combination of sour, sweet and mild spicy kick.

And because these are great with beer, Applebee's recently collaborated with local brewery Engkanto, where you can now choose from their IPA (with its full bitter notes) or Lager (with its light and fruity notes) aside from their delish cocktails and beverages when you dine at any Applebee's branch.

Ah, the salad. Personally, this is like a full meal for me with all those almonds, feta cheese, grilled watermelon and super plump shrimps. I also prefer yogurt or oil based dressings on my salad nowadays, which makes this even more appetizing! Try it as this is one of my newest favorites at Applebee's.

Want a cheeseburger and a taco? You can also, literally, get them both at Applebee's when you order their new Cheeseburger Tacos!

This Cavatappi is also super good with Spinach Artichoke Cream Sauce, grilled grape tomato halves and fried spinach leaves which I think look stunning on its own. The Chef might have gone a bit overboard with the cheese here, but to be honest, I didn't mind.

A few other "must-come-back" dishes are these luscious marinated grilled liempo (pork belly) plates.  There are two kinds: the Pork Liempo Adobo topped with fried onions; and the Fiesta Liempo that give you a taste of asian BBQ on a whole new level. Of course, we can't enjoy a good slab of pork belly without rice, and these dishes are served, consecutively, with brown garlic almond rice and mexi-rice with pico de gallo on the side.

Now, during my recent visit at Applebee's, I should mention that I was very happy seeing A LOT of foodie friends, including those whom I haven't seen in a long time. And as I went around to catch up with these people, I came across and got a chance to try their dishes as well, like this delicious Teriyaki Balsamic Glazed Salmon. Oh this is on my list next time when I come back, for sure.

Before I left Applebee's, I got the chance to try their desserts as well, like this Banoffee Cheesecake, with a combination of drizzled caramel and chocolate sauce on top. Nothing like the usual banoffee pie but this isn't bad either; and personally, I'd like this served a bit colder next time so it's almost like I'm eating ice cream!

Oh and the S'mores Creme Brulee tasted divine with its burnt marshmallows and graham bits on top on a decadent chocolate custard. This is actually a great dessert, but because I'm picky, I wished that they would use marshmallows that can be easily melted next time, whereas the one that they used here isn't.

At Applebee's, every visit is memorable not only because they serve all these excellently prepared dishes, but also because they give people meaning to celebrate something, even when people just think it's just another normal day. So gather your friends and family and see you at Applebee's soon!
