(a rather late post)
I was feeling low, I asked to be comforted. My B asked me to dinner at Banana Leaf, bought me Sebastian’s Chilly Burger Ice Cream & treated me with Cinnamon Rolls at Cinnabon. Most of all, he never stopped until I shook off negative vibes & cracked laughing. *love* (grabbed & edited my status on Facebook)
I had one exceptionally ugly August Friday morning that I don’t wish to share in full detail any further (because I don’t want to remember). I’ll just share our food trip at The Podium when I visited my B at his new office just right across this mall.
We best bond over delicious food and so we look around for a homey place to eat and talk.
Decided on having dinner at Banana Leaf, which serves authentic contemporary Southeast Asian cuisine.
His: appetizer, Crispy Spring Rolls Vietnamese Style, Php118
We liked this but we both agreed that we like that of My Thai better. *winks*
His: main entree, Deep Fried Pandan Chicken Php168, Hainanese Rice Php35 and Iced Tea Php60 (not pictured)
Hers: Hainanese Chicken – Set Meal Php198 and Dalandan Juice Php60 (not pictured)
This was my first ever encounter with the famous Hainanese Chicken and I loved it! Since that was my first time to taste it, I cannot really rate how good Banana Leaf’s version was. But, I can say that it’s good enough for me to crave for it and decide on taking my “Search-for-the-best-tasting-Hainanese-Chicken” adventure. If you know other restaurants that serves this, send the suggestions my way. *winks*
