The quaint favorite among many dining patrons of all walks of life is something that eludes me. For one, parking along their two branches in Katipunan is horrendous. And two, the place is always jam-packed and my aversion to swarming crowd just didn't help me entice to saunter around.
Luckily, it was one of those days where we have nothing to do but take a leisurely week-long rest. So we headed off to Il Terrazo to have our fill early that morning. That way we can be assured of our seats. Luckily though, I found out that that branch is not really that crowded. Or probably the entire place(mini mall) is.
The place is Banapple Pies and Cheesecakes. Entering, one will immediately mesmerized by the vibrant hues and esoteric interior that is both whimsical and buoyant, slightly bordering on the feminine side. The bar displays cakes and pastries that will immediately make you mouthwateringly crave with endless intensity.
But unlike other casual dining places, in this place, you have to order at the counter, and this is what we got.
Chicken Breast Parmigiano-- tender fillet of chicken breast encrusted with a Parmesan crumb mixture, topped with a rich stewed tomato sauce and melted mozzarella, served with glazed butter carrots.
And mine is an all-time favorite.
Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs-- extra tender country ribs grilled in hickory smoke, glazed with homemade hickory barbecue sauce and served with corn relish. This is what I usually order for a take out.
Saying that the place is teeming with virtually anybody from all walks of life because for students they have relatively affordable prices, for professionals, a quick gastric stuffing before or after a day's work, for an athlete, a gargantuan serving, and for elderlies, a classic traditional, non-conforming taste.
