Ihop is always an option fir good breakfast. Special thanks to looloo for sending a GC of ihop i have a reason to review this branch.

128204strawberry banana french toast @265
This is their original french toast with glazed strawberries with slices of banana. Just add another 100php and you'll get 2 eggs, hashbrown and choice of either bacon or sausage links. I chose the bacon. Their hash is quite unique. I thought it was something like okoy or cheese at first sight. The bottom of the hash was oily.

128204strawberry banana shake
Plain ordinary

I should have ordered pancakes, at the end. Their french toast were not outstanding.

There's a CR, gender specific, at the staircase just before going ti the second floor. The second floor is really spacious. The first floor is not a good place to stay. Wifi is not functioning because there are a lot of customers (8am) at that time. Customers are usually joggers and some lolo and lola.

Today, IHOP broke my heart. Despite all the backlogs that I need to review, I am doing this now because of frustration.

I was set to have dinner with the hubby at IHOP because I was seriously craving for some good plain waffle. I remembered the PNOY waffle that I got to try when we had our rendezvoos in IHOP and can’t stop thinking about it. I talked hubby through it and told him to try their Southern Fried Chicken with Country Gravy. Can’t forget about the bacon fat infused gravy and I knew he will like it too.

Went to IHOP around 930PM and the place was almost empty. We were ushered to a table and there was only one server in their second floor dining area. She gave us their menu and we ordered. Our orders took a long time before they were served but that was okay.

Two pieces of fried chicken with rice and gravy – brown gravy that is. But of course I tried it and it was their regular gravy. I called the attention of the server and asked if that was really the gravy that’s supposed to come with the fried chicken and she answered with a confident yes. I told her that the last time, we were served with a creamy white gravy infused with bacon fat – the country gravy. She said that it’s not available since they run out of it recently. I WAS SO PISSED. I told her that she could have told me because the fired chicken that we ordered will never be what it’s supposed to be without that specific gravy! She simply said that it’s not available so they replaced it with the regular gravy and asked if we needed anything else. Can you believe that? Husband was so dismayed because though the fried chicken was juicy, there was nothing extra ordinary about it and 295Php for two pieces with that kind of gravy was OVER PRICED. He wished he had McDo or KFC chicken instead.

I ordered for a plain waffle and though I liked it, it wasn’t as crispy as I remembered it during the rendezvoos. I wasn’t able to finish it and just asked for more iced tea.

Good thing I checked my bag and I was able to bring my vouchers. Imagine paying for 595 Php for food that left us looking for something else to eat. I gave my 500Php voucher and added 100Php cash. Whiw!

I have been itching to go back to IHOP after attending the fun looloo rendezvous there last month. I knew that IHOP is in Manila but ever since my not so nice dining experience in its US counterpart, I snubbed the idea of paying the local branch a visit. But after a wonderful brunch with awesome foodies, I regretted missing out on all these delectable dishes. And so… I bugged R.

Hello, IHOP! I’m back!

I was surprised that the place was packed on a Sunday night. We arrived a bit past 9 p.m. and very few tables were available for taking.

R and I were famished so we ordered Appetizer Sampler (PHP475), Specialty Fiesta Chicken Wrap (PHP295), Pick-A-Pancake Combo (PHP385), Soft Tacos (PHP195, 2 pieces) and Bottomless Iced Tea (PHP75).

The Appetizer Sampler and our drinks arrived first and R was delighted by the size of the sampler. He enjoyed the chicken tenders with the honey mustard sauce while I liked it more with the marinara sauce. It had a nice crispy batter while the chicken breast remained tender and juicy. I let R eat all the mozzarella sticks as I didn’t enjoy it during my first visit. We split the onion rings though as we both love onion rings. R was also amazed by how big it was.

The combo of two eggs, hash browns, sausage links and New York Cheesecake pancake was served next and it was when we realized that we ordered too much.

I was not in the mood for sausages so I let R eat both links. I had one of the eggs though and ate some hash browns. We decided to have the pancakes for later as our dessert.

While R was busy eating his meal, I started to munch on the chicken wrap.

The combination of tender grilled chicken breast with melted Cheddar and Jack cheeses, sautéed corn, salsa, ranch dressing and lettuce brought so much joy to my tastebuds. The lovely contrast of flavors and textures was addicting. The only thing that stopped me from finishing it was my tummy. I was too full from the steak we had for lunch (which was a whopping 20 oz steak)!

We didn’t touch the tacos anymore and had it to go and just focused on the pancakes.

The fluffy pancakes was a nice way to cap our meal. I drizzled mine with the original maple sauce while R tried the blueberry syrup. He was looking for strawberry syrup but it seemed that IHOP ran out when we visited.

Overall, it was a filling dinner and the best part was that I only spent a bit over PHP600 for everything because of the gift certificates I got from the past looloo rendezvoos. |ooloo, you’re the best! 10084

Another fun looloo rendezvoos during day time and brunch was sponsored by the International House of Pancakes! 9728️ I was actually curious as to how it would turn out given the reviews with low ratings I've been seeing on looloo. But I was pleasantly surprised. Aside from their already extensive menu, they also have other items that are offered for a limited time.

This rendezvoos was also a little unique as they let us order what we want from their menu aside from the dishes they're set to serve us.

🔹Splashberry. This beverage was suggested and it's what I had. This drink, lemon-lime soda with orange juice and strawberries, is perfect together with their heavy meals. All drinks are unlimited, even their coffee.

🔹Corned Beef Hash. This dish was good and tasty but it's really heavy. I ordered this as well.

🔹Appetizer Sampler. Generous serving of Mozzarella Sticks, Onion Rings, and Chicken Strips. Everything was good and the batter was crunchy. Probably the best mozzarella stick and chicken strip I've had in a while.

🔹Southern Fried Chicken. This is one of the dishes they have for a limited time only (LTO). It's a southern-style juicy chicken battered and fried to a golden brown crisp. It was good without any gravy and I liked it that way. The others loved it more with the smoky gravy. This item is available in 1 piece or 2 pieces. 127831127831

🔹Tacos. Another LTO dish. I loved this. The ground beef was well-marinated and went perfectly with the shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese. Even better is it's available in both soft or hard taco shell. This is also available in single or double. You can opt to have both soft and hard shells in a double order. 🌮🌯

Thanks |ooloo and IHOP! As usual, it was fun seeing other loolooers during the rendezvoos and the after-rendezvoos. 9786️ Reich T Clarissa P Jairus d Sandra Y Mary Love S JP G Mark L Abe C Odell R Peanut D

#DejaVu all over again! 3 years between my first looloo Rendezvoos, I returned to the scene of the crime at IHOP BGC. This time, sponsored lunch by Ihop so we can try their LTO (limited time offer) Comfort Food Dishes...

1) Southern Fried Chicken - Uber crunchy skin, salty savory goodness with juicy chicken inside. Served with country gravy (which is a creamier type of gravy) which works too, along with plain rice (P195 for 1 piece and P295 for 2 pc). 4/5
2) Tacos - get 'em soft or hard (P125 for 1 pc and P195 for a double). I got my taco soft. Very juicy and generous portions of marinated beef. And I loved that it didn't have beans, it's got diced tomatoes, onions, lettuce shreds, and grated cheese. Excellent! Rating 4.5/5 considering I don't eat Mexican all the time.

The 3rd limited time Comfort Food Favorites is the Spaghetti Bolognese (P195) which I didn't order. It's not for me.

Among the classics I tried for the first time,
3) Corned Beef Hash - P275 this dish was recommended by none other than Peanut D, so of course I had to try it. Boy was it good. The hash brown made some parts crunchy and I liked the saltiness of the Corned beef, so it was so enjoyable to eat. The serving is pretty heavy already. It was my 2nd breakfast meal for the day, having just had a breakfast meeting at UCC, but nonetheless, I enjoyed it. 4/5
4) Belgian Waffle - cooked the way P-Noy prefers it, according to the Marketing person of IHOP, Pat. Golden brown and a bit of a crunch outside. Quite good. Crunchy outside but soft inside. It's still thick for my taste. 3/5
5) Appetizer Sampler - decent mozzarella stick, onion ring and Chicken tender bunched in one. 3/5

Service was pretty good, thank to Marlon and the crew. Thanks, Pat. It was a nice sponsored looloo lunch. Seeing many families faces and a few unfamiliar faces ones. Nice to meet Sandra Y and Mark L while meeting up again with Jairus d, Reich T, Clarissa P, JP G, Mary Love S and of course, looloo's own Odell R and Peanut.

Friday night,  while i was waiting for Sandman,  i received an email from Peanut D.. Lo and behold!  An invite for a sponsored brunch at IHOP.  Yes,  |oo|oo Rendezvoos baby!

I had to make last minute changes to my weekend.  You can't say no to Peanut.  No is not even in the |oo|oo dictionary.  Think of it as a court appearance,  attendance is a must.  Say no and you'll be held in contempt. 

Pat from IHOP Philippines joined us for lunch.  A couple of minutes after and we were privy to some insider information about IHOP - a new branch in the QC area,  new concepts and new items on the menu.  

LTO's.  These are the limited time offer items on their menu. 

|Southern Style Fried Chicken.
Comfort food at its finest.  The chicken is cooked perfectly,  moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside.  The gravy is the best one I've tasted!  According to Chef Ryan,  they use Bacon Fat!!!!  It is soooo goood!  I even said that the gravy goes well with anything -  sausages,  fries,  drizzle on top of rice,  any type of grilled meat...

|Tacos.  This was okay for me.  I am not a fan of Mexican Food.  The only taco that i liked is the one from Silantro.  I liked that the filling is semi spicy,  reminiscent of chili con carne sans beans.   This would be a hit for Mexican Food Aficionados.

Items from the menu

|Banana Nutella Crepe.  This was good,  considering i am not a Nutella fan.  They didn't go cray-cray with the hazelnut spread.  Not too sweet as the whipped cream neutralises the sweetness of Nutella.  A lil dose of Potassium and we got ourselves a winning dish. 

|Steak Omelette.  One of my favourites.  Hash browns,  meat encased in a perfectly cooked scrambled egg.  I'd consider this dish as a heavyweight.  Filling and best eaten when you are really starving and has plans to join a triathlon.

|Corned Beef.   This is just okay.  What sets it apart from other corned beef dishes is the crispy shoestring potatoes. 

|Appetizer Sampler.  The chicken fingers is cooked well,  and they used the breast part.  Albeit that,  the meat is flavorful and moist.  The downside of using white meat is that it tends to lean to the dry side if not cooked properly.  The onion rings needs a lil improvement,  i would have preferred the batter to be extra crispy.  

|Split Decision.  I got the other piece of the bacon.  I looove bacon!

|Splashberry.  A concoction of lemon-lime soda,  orange juice and strawberries.  Lesser evil version of a regular soda,  a fraction of vitamin C makes the drink less evil.  I liked this,  the contrasting flavors of the juice and the soda makes the drink refreshing.  Perfect for the sweltering heat.

I didn't try the other dishes as i was too full.  Based on the othet reviews,  they seem (they - ang mga ninja mag-review,  the fastest of them all) to like what was served, nothing but praises.

It was nice seeing familiar faces and meeting fellow foodies. Nice meeting you Mark L The man behind the awesome photos - JP G, another fellow kaladkarin Sandra Y

An unexpected invitation at around 8pm from Peanut D last Friday. And it happened to be my first "rendezvoos" after few years reviewing in Looloo. I was excited because we'll be in a breakfast serving place.. IHOP! And of course, I get to meet some reviewers. After 1 hour and 9 minutes travel via UBER all the way from far far Lagro ( thank God! Walang traffic!) I arrived at exactly 11:15am. I have been in Ihop in BGC before and I find the place spacious, has good airconditioning and conducive for chatting. This time ibang level, we literally talk about food places we've been into and the best food we tried.

As I mentioned, I love breakfast meals, simply because most of it are my comfort food. So I started by ordering my preferred drink. And I was the only one who braved for "hot" coffee. And its refillable ( this is what I love in this place). I also highly recommended the Splashberry which everyone in the table ordered.. That I decide to have at the middle of our our brunch. It is a mixture of lemon lime soda and orange juice with fresh strawberries at the bottom.. Its yummy amd refreshing!

I enjoyed the Appetizer Sampler - Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, Onion Rings and Chicken Strips. Its all fried golden brown and its crunchy. It comes along with 2 dips: honey mustard and marinara dips.

Since I have not been in this place for a while, didn't know about their LTO (Limited Time Offer). I get to try their Southern Fried Chicken. Its so good that you can just eat it even without gravy. Take note, comes along with this white gravy... Yeah its good because we learned that it has bacon fat. Its a must try. Another noteworthy it their Tacos. I thought its the usual tacos that I have. We tried the hard and soft shell. Its simply a marinated ground beed, diced tomatoes,onions, lettuce shreds and grated cheese. The meat is flavorful with a hint of sweet taste. 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼 but I preferred the soft shell 128513

Chicken Fajita Omellete is superb. Made with grilled fajita seasoned chicken breast strips, fresh green peppers and onions with a blend of cheeses and salsa. Topped with sour cream. That creamy taste is just so perfect! Also get to taste Big Steak Omellete, it has steak strips, cheddar cheese and hash browns with green peppers, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Served with salsa. For me all mixture are crunchy and fresh, but its just bland.

Breakfast Sampler, is served with 2 eggs, bacon strips,ham, & hashbrowns. This is a staple breakfast that I can order regularly. #solidbreakfast.

New York Cheesecake, looking at it when served excites me. The buttermilk pancakes has cheesecake bites! And strawberry glazed topping is awesome. While eating, we had number of stories connected to food. One thing is the Belgian Waffle, which PNoy usually orders. I also take a bite of it. You can never go wrong with this perfectly cooked waffle, that compliments my coffee.

To sum it all up, I loved everything that is served, though most meals are quite pricey since 90% of the ingredients are sourced abroad. But its worth it, its a place you can go back, and feel good 128055

So happy to meet my fellow looloo reviewers Reich T, Clarissa P, Mark L, Abe C,Odell R, JP G, Ruth D, Mary Love S, and again Peanut D. Also, thankful for Jairus d.. Ibang entertainment, may concert pa sa car 128540

Overrrated. Pancakes are dry, service is slow, meat isn't fab.
You're safer eating at a local cafe or Granny's a few blocks from here.

IHOP is a regular thing for my small family. My daughter loves pancakes and IHOP has the right pancake for her and she always asks us to go back. They have this "Funny Face" pancake that my daughter loves. They're also pretty friendly with kids. That's why A |ooloo rendezvoos at IHOP was an instant yes for me because it was a chance to try some of their menu items that I haven't tried yet 128518

11AM call time on a hot Saturday for a sponsored pig out. Pat, from IHOP, joined us with their chef Ryan. They introduced their LTO (limited time offer) items to us - Spaghetti Bolognese, Southern Fried Chicken and IHOP Tacos. These dishes were created to give customers that ultimate comfort food experience, assuring satisfaction with these all time Favorites. We got to try the tacos and the chicken. They were also very generous to let us order whatever we wanted to try from their menu.

To start off, we were asked for our preferred beverage and since I've tried their Splashers before, I settled for an Iced Mocha since I needed the caffeine boost.

Onto the food, let me give you a drill down of what we've tried --

Appetizer Sampler - Mozzarella Cheese Sticks, Onion Rings and Chicken Strips - all fried to golden brown perfection. The sampler came in with honey mustard and marinara dips. All were tasty and had crunchy coating. Great start for a full meal ahead!

Southern Fried Chicken - there wasn't too much of complication with this chicken. It was plain and straight forward, juicy and tasty. The chicken parts were marinated with buttermilk then coated with flour that has some salt and pepper. What I liked about this though was the country gravy! It was knock out good! Made from milk, flour, black pepper and BACON FAT! Oh heavens! The bacon flavor was so distinct and according to Chef Ryan, they used double smoked bacon.

IHOP Tacos - we tried the hard and soft shell version and I would say that I liked the soft one more because it held the meat better. If you're getting the hard shell, better consume right away so that it won't get soggy. The meat was pretty good. It was more like chili con carne without the heat and the beans. It also had diced tomatoes, onions, lettuce and lots of cheddar cheese!

Banana Nutella Crepe - it was my first time to try this and I would say that it's super good! I mean Nutella with banana, how can you go wrong? It had generous serving of Nutella, slices of fresh banana, dusted with powdered sugar and topped with whipped cream. The crepe layers were a little thick though so an order of this is really filling.

It was also my first time to try the P-Noy favorite waffle and I must admit that it was good on its own. I didn't smother it with butter nor drown it with syrup but it was pretty good. Warm and crunchy outside but soft inside. I think I'll order this next time.

Got to try their corned beef, which I tried years ago, and was reminded that it was just okay for me.

I didn't try the other dishes coz they're already our family favorites in IHOP like the Steak Omelette which hubby and I would always order and upgrade the buttermilk pancake that it comes with (you can also opt for hash brown but we always skip this coz the omelette has one serving of this wrapped inside) to my all time IHOP favorite pancake - New York Cheesecake. Oh this one I highly recommend because it has generous chunks of cheesecake cubes inside!

The group also ordered some breakfast samplers which I've also tried before so I skipped them.

Overall, it was a great dining experience. Pat also shared that they're about to open a branch in Eastwood, just in front of McDonalds. They're also set to open a grab and go kind of store in SM North EDSA which will have a limited menu and a small space for those who opt to dine in.

Also, I would have to commend our server - Marlon. He's the best! According to Pat, even with regular customers, Marlon is able to establish good rapport. He was just excellent and so proactive! I would definitely look for him when my family goes back to IHOP!

It was nice to meet you Sandra Y and it was great to see familiar faces - Mark L and Mary Love S (see you on Sat?). And of course, it's always a great time with you guys - Jairus d, Reich T, Ruth D, JP G & Abe C 128516128516128516

Saturday rendezvoos at IHOP woot woot!

I had to wake up early to catch the sponsored brunch of IHOP. I left my hometown at 8:30 am to ensure I reach the place on time but heavy traffic prevailed. Good thing the food sesh was just starting when I joined the group.

Stepping into their BGC branch brought mixed feelings. I was iffy to try IHOP again leaving unsatisfied. Prolly because of the reviews and talks I had with fellow foodies before.

At the same time, I was supper giddy. Nostalgia all around. After all, IHOP BGC was the first rendezvoos I attended on Looloo. There's no amount equivalent to the feelings I experienced three years ago:

|My face flushed with excitement and my hands trembled after getting "The email invite".128563128582🏻128525

|That star-struck moment of meeting Peanut and EJ. (Oo, nangyari yan P!128514).

|Having a blast with fellow loolooers who shares the same passion with food and kalokohan!.

|Submitted my first gay-lingo review and everyone went nuts about it! (or so i think)128517

|The last but most important.. eating FREE FOOD! #Charaught 128514

Okay, enough of the past! Let me go back to my IHOP review.128517 Our group was assisted by Patricia Malong, IHOP's brand officer. The invite happened to promote their brand new limited time comfort food favorites. We've tried two of them:

1278312 PC SOUTHERN FRIED CHICKEN (P195, 1 piece; P295; 2 pieces) - It comes with white rice and gravy. The chicken was flavorful and crunchy. It hits the crunchy skin while being juicy in the inside. Surprisingly, the star of the dish goes to the gravy. Flour, pepper, milk cooked in.. Wait for it.. BACON FAT! It's thick and creamy, the bacon fat taste envelops the gravy and blends perfectly with their fried chicken. Soo good!

128131🏼IHOP TACOS (P125, single; P195, double) - Ground beef, diced tomatoes, onion, lettuce shreds, cheese in a taco shell. You have the option to get the shell in soft or crunchy shell. This was just an okay dish. Prolly because of the ground beef's acidity from the tomatoes. Others liked their tacos.

The following were also served:

127815SPLASHBERRY (P175) - Strawberries, lemon-lime soda and orange juice. Quite pricy but the good thing is - it's refillable. The delish blend of flavors was supposed to be refreshing! I don't like soda of any sort so this was just okay too.

128046128020🧀APPETIZER SAMPLER (P425) - Huge mozzarella sticks, chicken strips and onion rings. It comes with marinara and honey dip. I loved every pieces. The sauces are also on point.

127830BIG STEAK OMELETTE (P395) - It comes with steak, cheddar cheese, hash brown with green peppers, onions, mushroom and tomatoes. The salsa sauce is not needed IMO as the dish was already flavorful and heavy.

127830SPLIT DECISION BREAKFAST (P325) - Two eggs, 2 bacon strips, 2 pork sausage links, 2 slices of french toasts and two buttermilk pancakes. I asked for sunny side up eggs which was done perfectly as the yolks are runny. The bacon strips were crunchy and honey cured twice. Perfection! Get this if your really famished and in need of full blast tummy refilling.

Overall, I liked everything that was served earlier. I would go back just for the fried chicken and its awesome gravy. Kudos to Marlon for the awesome customer service.

Thank you chef Ryan and Pat! IHOP Pak!128513

I have never tried IHOP here in Manila for two reasons, crowd and bad first impression. I tried IHOP in the US and everything I ordered were too salty or too oily. It made me wonder how this breakfast joint became so popular (even to Filipinos). But I guess there's no avoiding IHOP when Peanut D invites you while you're on a Sakura vacation. I immediately replied GAME when she mentioned IHOP. IHOP, we are meant to enjoy each other's company. 128518

Aaaaaand... I was late. 128547 I was trying to avoid surge that morning but I eventually gave in with 1.2 surge as I was really running late. And to make things worse, I didn't know that 9th Avenue (or was it 7th) was closed for an event. Almost everyone was there when I arrived.

After a few catching up and sharing our food finds, we eventually ordered.

First served was my Splashberry (PHP175) drink. It was so refreshing and I loved that there are whole strawberries inside!!! Yum! The fizz from the lemon-lime soda and the sweetness of orange juice made this drink the top choice to beat the summer heat! Pricey? Well, did I mention that it was refillable? WE HAVE A WINNER HERE!!! 🏅

We also got to try some of IHOP's LTO (limited time offers) for lunch! We had Southern Fried Chicken (PHP195, one piece | PHP295, two pieces) and IHOP Tacos (PHP125, single | PHP195, double).

First served was the appetizer sampler (PHP425) and it was goooood! The sampler comes with giant onion rings, chicken tenders and mozzarella sticks. The mozzarella sticks were a bit on the bland side and lacked the gooeyness great mozzarella sticks have in common. But it was good with the marinara sauce. I liked the chicken tenders more as it was so crunchy on the outside and quite juicy in the inside. It went well with marinara sauce too. The onion rings were great too! I ate 3 rings, I think. I totally ignored the honey mustard sauce as I fell in love with the red dip.

The Southern Fried Chicken was served next and it was delectable. Simple and straightforward, it's that type of chicken that reminds you of home cooked fried chicken, only better! The skin was so crispy and the meat inside was so juicy. The one we got though had slight red spots which I didn't like. I guess I should request for breast for more white meat. (Note: YOU HAVE TO TRY THEIR GRAVY. They put BACON FAT in it. Yes, BAAAACON FAAAAAT.)

The tacos and pretty much everything else were served after. We took advantage of the natural light and scored some nice photos. But it took us long enough for the Banana Hazelnut Crepe (PHP275) to require some retouch.

After getting nice shots (and JP G's buwis buhay stunt to get great photos) we returned to our seats with the dishes.

The tacos were amazing! It was no wonder they are having a hard time when to stop offering this dish. I used to frequent Pancake House for tacos but I found a better one! And they can serve it with soft tacos! The marinated ground beef had a nice sweet flavor and it was well complemented by the greens and cheese. 10084

The Chicken Fajita omelette (PHP325) and Big Steak omelettes (PHP395) were great as well. The eggs were prepared well. It had that nice fluffy and buttery texture I absolutely adore. The chicken bits (which had a tinge of tart) and veggies added bite and flavor to the dish. Big Steak had a cheesier taste with its cheddar cheese topping. It was more packed and definitely heavier with the steak chucks.

The Breakfast Sampler (PHP395) was bang for the buck. It was a really heavy dish as it comes with a huge chunk of hash brown (which is internationally sourced), ham, bacon strips, sausages and eggs. The eggs were cooked just the way JP likes it. The yolk was gooey and simply perfect! I tried the ham and sadly, it was a bit tough to slice.

The New York Cheesecake Pancake (PHP255 if you order a la carte) that came with our breakfast sampler was yummy. Fluffy pancake and strawberries on top, two of my favorite things! I didn't get a taste of the cheesecake though. Not sure if my taste buds decided to have siesta or if the taste was really faint.

I got a bite of the P.Noy favorite waffles and I love it too! Simple you cannot go wrong crunchy waffles. 10084

Overall, this meal made me change my mind about IHOP. I'll definitely go back for more tacos and pancakes!

Thanks, looloo for the invite and IHOP (Pat, Chef Ryan and Marlon) for feeding us and listening to us yap about food while waiting for food, while eating food and while secretly burping. 10084

we had a nice looloo rendezvoos today in which we enjoyed each other's company. first we met was Pat, ihop's marketing specialist. then Pat introduced us to Chef Ryan, then to our official server, Marlon.

marlon asked us what we wanted to drink and i asked what he recommended, he said splashberry 128077128077128077128077. it's a mixture of fresh lemonade, 7-up and strawberry syrup (and some fresh strawberries floating around). I remember drinking this type of drink (or something close to it 128521) when I was younger when we had parties in our house.

we learned that ihop will be opening soon in sm north (main building near sm supermarket). we also learned that their up town center restaurant is their best selling branch.

first they served was, of course, the appetizers. the onion rings 128077128077128077 doesn't look oily but you can taste the oil if you don't put the sauce. i liked it better when I ate it with the salsa. the chicken tenders 128077128077128077 was also good even without the sauce/s. I didn't try the mozzarella sticks.

marlon asked us if we wanted a soft or hard shell taco. I picked the hard shell 128077128077128077128077. the shell is thin and crispy. they served it with generous toppings. i like it better with hot sauce. this taco was an lto (limited time offer) food.

they also let us try another one of their lto, the southern fried chicken 128077128077128077128077128077. of course, i got the wing. the meat was juicy and chicken skin was crunchy. you don't need the country style gravy to experience the deliciousness of the chicken.

I recommend that both lto food I mentioned above should be put in their main menu. 128513

for my main course, Peanut D recommended corned beef 128077128077128077128077128077. it's a good thing I followed her advice. the corned beef was freshly made. it was nice and juicy. we learned that some potatoes were mixed into the hash. the garlic rice was also good and the soft scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked.

for dessert, Pat ordered for us the belgian waffles 128077128077128077128077 always ordered by PNoy. it was a plain butter waffle that was crispy outside.

thanks for inviting me again to take part in this rendezvoos.

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Starting fresh with a new account since I had forgotten that I used a different e-mail address for my previous one. :))

So my family decided to go to High Street to have breakfast (well somewhat brunch). We went to this branch BUT this is not the first one I tried this place since me and my fam already eaten in their Filinvest branch.

It was still a bit crowded despite we went there before 9:30. Luckily there are still some seats when we went inside. So once we got to our seats, I decided to try something different other than pancakes.

Upon checking their menu, I got attention to one of their non-dessert crepes which is their Chicken Florentine crepes. From their menu the description is "Two crepes filled with grilled chicken breast, fresh spinach, mushrooms and onions and Swiss cheese topped with hollandaise." I told right away my brother about it since I know he loves chicken. He then agreed that we share for now since we don't know how big it is and chose a dessert crepe so that its a win-win situation.

So what I had were the following:
Chicken Florentine Crepe (lower left in the picture) - ★★★★★

It was really delicious. The crepe itself complimented with the hollandaise sauce. The sauce was not bland and was just right. Though my brother gave a remark that we shouldn't have shared since we weren't full and contented with just having one. Luckily, we had a dessert crepe after which is...

Strawberry Banana Danish Fruit Crepe (plate near the Chicken Florentine Crepes - "Two delicious fruit crepes filled with a combination of cool strawberries and rich sweet cream cheese. Topped with cool strawberries, fresh banana slices and whipped cream."

My rate for this would be ★★★★ - Though I'm not a big fan of food having strawberries or strawberry flavor in it, I really find this really good. The sweetness of the cream cheese is just right and well balanced with the strawberry and the other components of the crepe. Though I have to admit, it was so good I decided that I'll definitely work this thing out on trying desserts with strawberries next time.

So the rest were ordered by my parents and my lola which is the Split Decision breakfast (shared by my dad and lola) and Corned Beef Hash and Eggs breakfast for my mom.

Overall, I enjoyed my quality time with my fam here. You can never go wrong with having an awesome breakfast with so many things (especially food to discover :)) ) and having non-stop conversations with your love ones. <3

Just sad though that they ran out of butter pecan and strawberry syrup. Hope they will be available again soon. :(

Will definitely try the Corned Beef Hash and Eggs breakfast since I learned from my mom that IHOP makes those Corned Beef Hash. So far I tried aside from today would be the CINN-A-STACK pancakes and their Bibingka Pancakes last December <3

Any other suggestions would be lovely and will be in my list. :) Here's to new discoveries no matter how small or big it is <3

Nowadays l go to IHOP not to eat pancakes or waffles but to get their corned beef hash. Lesley Ardelle V, not sure if you're still into corned beef haha but this one is pretty good!

Lots of onion and it has potato strips too just like an actual hash! It comes with egg and garlic rice also. Perfect perfect meal - whether breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Got this with their refillable coffee and this meal just made my day! (Also got the pancakes anyway as my dessert haha.)

Since I went during their off peak hours, this meant I easily got their attention and therefore got good service! 128077
