Banoffee Pie from Red Ribbon

Banoffee pies were made popular in the Philippines by Starbucks about over a year ago and shortly after everyone started raving about it, other bakeshops started coming up with their own version of the banana, toffee, and chocolate dessert. Red Ribbon has their own cake-sized version of the pie (as opposed to the Starbucks one, which was about as compact as a small plate) and yesterday, I got to try it out for the first time.
What I like about the Red Ribbon Banoffee Pie is that it’s not cloyingly sweet – you can eat about two slices without feeling sick. The sugar in the graham cracker crust gets neutralized by the bananas and is complemented by the toffee and the chocolate. I don’t like how the first half of the cake is made up of a thick layer of whipped cream though; I feel like there should be more bananas and toffee in there. Overall, it’s not a very bad buy if you want to keep a stock of banoffee in your house. One pie costs around Php 590.
