Maple American Restaurant at San Antonio Plaza Arcade

Maple Restaurant San Antonio Plaza Forbes Park Makati City
Our eldest son was itching for some waffles after our Sunday obligation last week at Santuario de San Antonio. Fortunately, one such place that served good ones was just a few short walks away. Maple American Restaurant is located on the second floor of the San Antonio Plaza Arcade, fronting the said church. It is a subsidiary of the Pancake House Group, along with Dencio's, Kabisera and Teriyaki Boy to name a few.

It was our second time at Maple San Antonio Plaza, but it was our first time to try two of the three dishes we ordered.

I forgot to ask if these bottles that line the walls of the restaurant did contain real maple syrup. I doubt it though. They look lovely, don't you think? Especially when illuminated from behind.

There was a bread plate and butter knife included in the table setting, but we weren't given any. We were served both during our first visit though. They probably just forgot.

Love, love lemon water!

Aside from drinking lemon water, we also ordered Maple Iced Tea. It's infused with orange, which made it extra refreshing on a hot Sunday morning.

Maple Restaurant's menu is a hodgepodge of American, Creole, Mexican and Filipino dishes. One of the Creole dishes in their menu that spiked my curiosity was the Spaetzle Jambalaya. It was my first time to try a jambalaya that contains spaetzle instead of the usual rice. It was definitely a great substitute! Better than rice! Maple's jambalaya was very aromatic to begin with. The distinctive jambalaya flavour married well with the shrimp and Chilean mussels. I especially liked that it was not dry and the heat level was just right. The best jambalaya I've ever had was the one from Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This version is nearly as good!

Our eldest son was ready to go for the kill when the Banana Pecan Belgian Waffle was placed in front of him. His hunger pangs went on overdrive when he reached his tweens! I blame it on his hormones. 

The waffle was a huge serving. The presentation was very much enticing and the flavour superb. It was topped with the same signature butter {which I love} from Pancake House, crushed maple-glazed pecans, slices of caramelized bananas and some maple syrup. For an extra free, you can drizzle real maple syrup on your waffle instead of pancake syrup. I found the inside of the waffle to be a bit dry, but my kid thought it was perfect.

Hubs had one of his breakfast and brunch favorites: Eggs Benedict. This was a great combination of texture and flavours. The eggs were poached perfectly and the Hollandaise sauce did not overpower the taste of the whole dish. The flaky puff pastry discs - in lieu of English muffins - added a nice touch to both the texture and the taste.

The Crunch Country Fries was a real treat! As the name implies, it was perfectly crunchy and toasty on the outside but buttery soft on the inside. The seasoning was just right.
