This post should have been up here a long time ago but every time we eat at Applebee's, I never had any blog worthy photos to post up here.

So on the next couple of times we ate at this American casual dining joint, I tried to take better photos of the food and the restaurant.

They had their interiors redesigned and I like it more this time because the ambiance is fresh and fun. They removed many memorabilia that used to clutter the walls and replaced them with photos framed nice and neat. They kept that signature wall murals though showing the best of both worlds which I find really cool.

The two photos above are taken in two different occasions and location. The first was in Dubai branch where me and my colleagues had our lunch one Thursday and the second was in their Sharjah branch last Father's Day to celebrate our dads day.

Applebee's have big servings so ordering three different dishes is good enough to share with this two hungry birds whether it is a salad or a starter.

Lunch break is just one hour so we wasted no time and ordered our food fast. We had burger slider, fiesta salad and poblano pasta. This fiesta salad is true to its name. It is not only colorful, there is so much texture in it.

The burger slider was fantastic, the beef patty was freshly made and it was sooo juicy. I promise that I'll come back only for their real big burgers next time.

Do I need to say more for this pasta dish? Look at those prawns, yum.

Wanna have lunch/dinner, they have this ongoing promotion.

We are too full to have dessert but if you are visiting, these are worth dunking your forks into

They have great sangria s too, this was mine, the red apple

Closer... did you notice something?

These two sangria photos were taken in different times but as you can see it is my favorite, and I order it all the time, isn't it pretty?

Fathers Day cannot be ignored especially when it is the only topic on your Facebook wall for almost three days and nothing else. lols!

Of course we took the man of the house to Applebee's for a treat. Unlike the hurried lunch I had with my colleagues, this out dinner is at leisure, unhurried and slow and fun.

When you eat at Applebee's this sampler tower is a must, best shared with family or friends and it's really delicious, that boneless BBQ wings is a winner. You can actually build your tower sampler if you like with starters of your choice.

Our food came in big servings, just look at these plates.

This one's my daughters - Mac N Cheese

My sister-in-law ordered Parmesan crusted chicken and pasta

Prince ordered burger slider.

The celebrant had 7 oz sirloin cooked medium well with mushroom sauce (not pictured). I didn't order anything for myself because the burger slider have three mini burgers which Prince cannot finish and we also had that sampler tower for our starter. I knew that we will have enough food to share.

Dessert was moist chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream with five spoons, I shoot and we demolish.

Happy daddy, happy tummy and happy family.

Oh, I haven't tried that real big burger yet so yeah I'll be back...soon.
