Maple Restaurant, is one of the brands under the Max’s Group which handles popular restaurants such as Max’s Restaurant, Pancake House and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. This restaurant offers an all-day breakfast which you can enjoy in their cozy ambiance. As this is located at San Antonio Plaza Arcade in front of Santuario De San Antonio, this became a community breakfast place around Forbes Park in Makati City. Let me share my experience at Maple Restaurant.
THE EXPERIENCE and FOOD
The overall feel inside the restaurant is like the autumn season. Maple design patterns, maple colors, brown chairs and white tables adorned this small place which can accommodate around 20-30 people. Large windows definitely allows natural light to come in and a relaxing view of the church is a plus. We were welcomed by the team from the Pancake House group which shares the best sellers on the menu.
| ARUGULA SALAD (Php 235)
It was mixed with cherry tomatoes and walnuts. It is topped with poached egg, prosciutto, shavings of Grana Padano drizzled with balsamic reduction. And since the arugula tasted bitter, the light lemon vinaigrette saved it. This would-be heaven for those who love greens!
| EGGS BENEDICT (Php 235)
My favorite of all the dishes! This signature Maple breakfast is topped with Canadian bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on top of a phyllo pastry. Chips and greens on the side was also served and this can be shared by two people. I enjoyed the balanced flavor of this dish and first time to try a puff pastry on Eggs Benedict. But I forgot to ask, can we request the bacon to be on the side and made it crispier?
| BLACKENED CHICKEN (Php 485)
This is grilled Cajun chicken breast served with creamed spinach, bacon and dirty rice. The rice was mildly spicy which perfectly suited the overall taste of the dish. Although not one of my favorites, but a must-try for first timers.
| PRIME RIB TAPA (Php 530)
This is my second favorite! This is a marinated prime rib served with garlic rice and two eggs on the side. It also includes a tomato-onion salsa and atchara. What you love more about it, aside from the price, you can also request your preferred doneness. The one served to us I believe was medium rare as it was really seared outside with hints of red in the center. Though the presentation is quite dull, you will totally enjoy every bit of it. Forgot to ask again, do they offer it with mashed potato?
| APPLE PIE WITH STREUSEL TOPPING (Php 250)
And to finish off a dessert pie. This pie is filled with Granny Smith and red Washington apples. The sweet and crunchy streusel covered the top and a vanilla ice cream on the side. I considered this as my least favorite as it really lacks the apple pieness (imbento!) in it. But nevertheless, enjoyed the vanilla ice cream!
So, if you are considering a family lunch, dinner or even a date, head to Maple to enjoy their meals. If you have events, make sure to call them for reservations.
