Applebee’s being one, has been around for quite sometime. And they have new dishes to cater to our local taste.

So now, with their new line of dishes, Applebee’s can easily satisfy both American and Filipino Food cravings. Sounds great so far? Keep reading and join us as we share with you what we think about the NEW Dishes at Applebee’s Philippines in this edition of EATSplorations, enjoy!
Welcome to Applebee’s at Eastwood City!
Located at Eastwood Citywalk, Applebee’s is on the second floor. As we made our way up, the verandah dining area was what welcomed us and the bar area was located at the entrance. With its wooden-brick walls and dimmed lights, Applebee’s gives an ambiance that will allow diners to just chill and celebrate good food.
At Applebee’s, there’s always a reason to celebrate! With this EATSperience of ours, find out if their NEW dishes are worth celebrating for or not. Hmmmmm… What do you think?
FOOD, FOOD, and more FOOD! Time to EAT!
A variety of new items in their menu, from appetizers, salads, pasta, chicken, seafood, burgers, handhelds and to desserts. Applebee’s has a lot to offer and diners will surely have fun while enjoying great food and drinks.
Not a new item but definitely a must try! The staff asked us if we wanted to order it for our baby and thank goodness they suggested it because it was super good! Baby Beanie loved it and we did, too.
For us, anything with bacon is always good and this dish was. However, we found it a little bit too mild as the jalapeno heat was lacking. It turned out to be good for our baby as she was able to finish a croquette because it was just right for her.
In our honest foodie opinion, this is one of the best among the new dishes at Applebee’s. The combination of melt-in-your-mouth shredded beef brisket and the kick from the salsa and jalapeno dressing was truly amazing. It’s best eaten with a glass of their Engkanto Lager Beer (Engkanto Brewery is their local craft beer partner, find out more here).
Bacon, Burger, and Shredded Beef Brisket. What more can you ask for? This is probably one of the meatiest burgers we’ve ever had in a long time. Make sure to eat it right away to savor its juiciness and to fully enjoy it.
If the quesadilla didn’t fill you up, then this one will surely will. For 545 pesos, this is a bargain not only because it’s packed with lots of beef brisket, salsa, and many more, but also because it’s for sharing, too. We loved this one a lot!
Perfectly grilled Norwegian Pink Salmon! The teriyaki balsamic glaze is a great complement to the freshness of the salmon. If you are not into meat, this dish will surely fill you up and satisfy your cravings.
This pasta dish is AMAZING! If you love spinach artichoke, you will surely love this creation by Applebee’s! We could probably eat a serving of this after a long day. It’s really creamy, tasty, and perfect for the whole family, too!
This one’s going to be a bestseller really soon! Yes, it’s two thick slices of grilled pork belly in soy-vinegar sauce (adobo sauce) with garlic brown rice on the side. If you are at Applebee’s and you are craving for something Filipino, make sure to order this and thank us later.
This too had 2 thick slices of pork liempo! Mouthwatering pork liempo drizzled in a sweet and savory Asian BBQ sauce topped colored tortilla strips. Served with Mexi-rice and pico de gallo on the side. When we dine at Applebee’s again, we will definitely have a taste of this again! It’s that good!
Time for dessert! Their Banoffee Cheesecake was an instant favorite. Toffee cheesecake on a cofffee graham cracker crust drizzled with dulce de leche and hot fudge sauces. Rich and creamy cheesecake that was not too sweet for our own taste. Definitely a must-try! We also tried their Smores Creme Brulee and our sweet cravings were satisfied.
At Applebee’s any celebration is made possible. Families and friends will surely be able to create memories over good food. With an array of new dishes, Applebee’s is a perfect venue that can cater to different events, gatherings, and preferences.
