The queues on its opening attest to its popularity. It may have been late-night when Len and I went, but we were still required to wait over an hour for a table. By the time we were seated, not only was I starving, I was also a little irritable after having stood for so long. But eating at IHOP made it all worthwhile. Here’s our first IHOP experience – and yes – these photos were taken a year ago. lol
I ordered Big Steak Omelette (Php290.18). It has tender and tasty strips of steak, hash browns, fresh green peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and Cheddar cheese. It was good. I am thinking of trying to make my own version of this for my hubby. hehe
This is actually included in the Big Steak Omelette meal that I ordered. I added Php44.64 to change it from original pancakes to New York Cheesecake Pancakes. This has two pancakes with cheesecake pieces and topped with strawberries, powdered sugar and whipped topping. I super love this one. I can pretty much eat pancake the whole day.
Elenil ordered Breakfast Sampler (Php352.68). This comes with two eggs, two crispy bacon strips, two pork sausage links, and two pieces of ham, two fluffy buttermilk pancakes and our golden hash browns. And Len added rice to go along with it. Too Filipino, I know! Lol
Instead of sticking to the original pancake, Len changed her order to Double Blueberry Pancakes. This is also included in her Breakfast Sampler order. We also added Php44.64. This comes with two buttermilk pancakes filled with blueberries, topped with blueberry compote and whipped topping.
IHOP have a variety of hot and cold drinks to enjoy. I order French Vanilla and Len ordered something else but they were completely out of those. We end up getting Lemonade (Php156.25 each serving but it's bottomless) instead which is also good. But the good thing about, it's bottomless.
I love that they have four different types of Pancake Syrups to choose from: Old Fashioned, Butter Pecan, Blueberry and Strawberry. And of course, I tried them all.
Interior wise, it's simple but looks very comfortable. The place was too crowded, I wasn't able to take a photo of the whole place.
How can anyone not like IHOP? Great food, great service! A bit pricey compared to the local breakfast-restaurants, but worth it. Needless to say, I cannot wait to go back!
