Restaurant Review: Maple, Forbes Makati

Actually looks familiar :)
Actually looks familiar πŸ™‚

I have been wanting to eat here since I have heard of it. I love breakfast food. It is one of those meals that I can have the whole day everyday. Of course, I can only eat so much eggs in a day. Or hollandaise. Or fried potatoes. Or preservative-laden Β meat. You get my drift. But if I was only to meat one meal, ahhh. Breakfast. πŸ™‚

So we went here, me and my closest college friends, for some catch-up. I am sure we were too noisy for the nearby families, after-all, we went on a Sunday brunch. Go figure. And though we change venues, like brunch place, over drinks, or in somebody’s house, conversations stay the same. πŸ™‚

Eggs benedict :)

We ordered the eggs benedict, steak, both of their sunrise, sunset meals of egg souffle with truffle oil and a dish of pancakes with eggs, bacon and hollandaise, pancakes with banana and walnuts, and champorado. We were 8 and we had a lot of food and sharing of food going around. πŸ™‚

Eggs, pancake, bacon and hollandaise :)

Servings were huge, and almost all halved with someone. And one thing I love about eating out are huge portions. Like big portions that you are only too happy to share, and pay for. πŸ™‚ I think that’s small portions, with small price tags have a worse habit of disappointing me than having to pay more. πŸ™‚ So there was plenty of food.


Verdict? Delicious. I love eggs. And eggs with hollandaise are sinful, but yummy. And eggs with hollandaise with fried potatoes, yummier! My eggs benedict were sitting on some phyllo pastry, which was a nice texture against the runny soft eggs. Kelvin’s plate had the bacon, eggs benedict and pancake combination and it was good too. But maybe too much hollandaise for me πŸ˜› and too much of everything, I think. πŸ™‚ But maybe halved with someone it’s a runaway hit. I wasn’t able to try the steak, but I heard it was good. The souffle too was good, in a different kind of souffle way. πŸ™‚ EVERYTHING WAS GREAT. πŸ™‚


One bad thing about the place though. It was small. It could sit about 30 people. And that’s it. I am sure that on weekends, it’s full, but a possible empty lull during afternoon weekdays. But we had to wait for around 30 minutes for seats, and people coming in after us had to wait longer (since we ate in two batches).


But the potatoes. Their potato hash is memorable. I am already thinking how I’m going to recreate it at home πŸ™‚
