Green Banana Leaf treats taste buds to a fusion of traditional Filipino cuisine and modern international flavors. Archipelagic menu items include stomach-engine starters such as the ground-beef-filled lettuce wraps with fried vermicelli, cilantro, butter lettuce, carrots, and sprouts ($9.50). Diners can try authentic Filipino eating with traditional kare-kare, with oxtail and tripe in a thick peanuty sauce served with vegetables ($13), or detonate a fusion entree with the crispy kare kare, with crispy pork leg complementing the sauce ($15.50). Split a whole deep-fried GBL chicken with banana sauce among a dinner party ($10), or go vegetarian with the asparagus with tofu (served with ginger sauce and fried tofu; $11.50). A dessert order of banana-centric GBL delight, topped with mango sauce, chocolate, and vanilla ice cream, silences any sweet-tooth tantrums with a surge of sophisticated sweetness and classic banana bribery ($6.50).
Well-presented dishes, exotic flowers, and hanging lights set the mood at Green Banana Leaf, as live musical melodies occasionally waft into the vibrant foreground.
