Applebee's Philippines New Menu: Serving Up Good Times!

Applebee's Grill and Bar Philippines recently launched its new menu straight from the US packed with new dishes including all-new local favorites. Applebee's has always been about encouraging their valued customers to celebrate everything - from small victories to the grandest milestones. Hence, their new brand promise, "Serving Up Good Times" is very much fitting.

That is why when it comes to celebrations spent at Applebee's are guaranteed to give you the best dining experience from great food to amazing service.

I should know, I celebrated with them many times since they opened here in Manila. It is safe to say that I am a fan and I know some of you are too.

Currently, there are two branches of Applebee's Bar and Grill here in the Philippines; the one in Bonifacio Global City and the other one is in Eastwood City Libis, the branch that I usually frequent to. 

Previous menu of Applebee's was already impressive, but the revamped one is even more amazing. What makes it all the more special is the addition of local Filipino-inspired dishes into the mix. It is something that Filipino food-loving citizen can look forward to when dining at Applebee's. But then, all the other new dishes are well worth checking out.

There are a lot of new dishes on the menu and here are those which I get to try and enjoy during the launch. But trust me, there are plenty other more - a good reason to visit Applebee's pronto so that you may check them out yourself.

To start, during the launch, we got to try craft beers by Engkanto Brewery which are now part of the impressive line up of beers, cocktails, and beverages sold at Applebee's Philippines. I tried both the pale and lager and enjoyed both. It is said to go perfectly well with the new appetizers line up at Applebee's such as Fried Sweet and Spicy Pickles , Bacon Jalapeno Potato Croquettes, and Calamari.

One of the new appetizers, the Southern Beef Brisket Quesadilla (Php525) is said to go perfectly well with cocktails and wine. But I was deeply enchanted with my Engkanto Lager that I partnered it with everything that day including this delicious appetizer.

This quesadilla is basically slow-cooked seasoned beef brisket tossed in a chipotle lime salsa and jalapeno dressing topped with assorted cheddar cheese in a warm flour tortilla wrap. I love every bits of it.

For the salad, I had the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad (Php765/Full, Php445/Half) because I love salad with watermelons on it. Basically, this comprised of farm fresh greens, diced cucumbers, feta cheese, and toasted almonds tossed in a creamy mint yoghurt dressing topped with spicy grilled shrimp and grilled watermelon cubes.

There are plenty of new pasta dishes on the menu that sounds interesting but it was the Spinach Artichoke and Grilled Chicken Cavatappi (Php495) that won me over. It's basically Cavatappi pasta sauteed in spinach artichoke cream sauce topped with seasoned chicken breast strips, grilled grape tomato halves, and fried spinach leaves.

I love the perfect fine balance between the creaminess of the pasta and the savory flavor of the chicken and the veggies. This is one of those new dishes that I am still craving up to the time that I am writing this!

I also got to try the Triple Meat All-In Burger (Php795) and it blew me away with its delicious combination of USDA beef burger patty, double smoked bacon, and shredded beef brisket in honey BBQ sauce with cheddar cheese sandwiched in between Brioche bun. The burger alone is already satisfying in itself but coupled with seasoned fries, it is a meal that any burger-lovers such as myself will love.

For the local favorites, I tried the Fiesta BBQ Pork Liempo (Php495) which amazing heftyness impressed me to the core. The two thick cut succulent pork belly steaks were drizzled with sweet and savory Asian BBQ sauce topped with colored tortilla strips and served with Mexi-rice and pico de gallo on the side. Definitely well worth the calories.

Pork-lovers aren't the only people who has something to look forward to at Applebee's new menu. Fish-lovers may opt for the delicious Teriyaki Balsamic Glazed Salmon (Php695) if they are trying to dodge pork. This dish is ocean fresh Norwegian Pink Salmon basted with Teriyaki balsamic glaze served with Mexi-rice and green bean crispers on the side.

For dessert I had the decadent Banoffee Cheesecake (Php350), a toffee cheesecake on a coffee graham cracker crust drizzled with dulce de leche and hot fudge saucesthen topped with banana chips. I love cheesecakes in general so this was a sure winner for me. Added bonus was that it was really really good.

As I have mentioned, there are many new dishes on Applebee's new menu. These are just the ones I got to try but judging from the reactions of my friends, other dishes were also impressive. If you have not been or have not visited Applebee's as of late, I suggest now is the best time. There are more reason to celebrate and let Applebee's be part of it as they are known to serve up good times.
