We hop to IHOP!

All-day breakfast restaurants are becoming the "in" thing these days, much to my delight. Brekkie is my favorite meal of the day and I love breakfast food anytime - be it for lunch and dinner, even afternoon snacks. In 2013, an American all-day breakfast restaurant opened here in the Philippines and instantly became a hit. It's IHOP, which opened in California in 1958 as the International House of Pancakes. In 1973, it became known simply as "IHOP".
Before 2014 ended, my office friends and I were happy to have the chance to try IHOP at the UP Town Center at lunchtime. And I found out, their food were a delight to the eyes as they were to the tummy. 
We ordered:

Berries and Cream Belgian Waffle, P325.
New York Cheesecake Pancakes, P285.
Double Blueberry Pancakes, P275.
Pick-a-pancake combo, P385. Includes 2 eggs, a hash brown, bacon, sausage and a choice of pancake

Chicken and Waffles, P345.
Breakfast Beef Tapa, P375.
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad with Garlic Bread, P455 (full), P325 (half).
Mixed fruits, P95.
Never Empty Coffee Pot, P125

My friends and I were happy eaters that day, yes, oh yes! I can't even wait to go back! All of us loved our orders. I was happy with my chicken and waffles - the plain ones which were so good when smothered with butter and poured with good 'ol maple syrup. For dessert, I had mixed fresh fruits and capped my meal with freshly brewed coffee. Interestingly, at IHOP, when you order coffee, you will be served a whole thermos of it so you'll be happily drinking more than enough. You may share with your companion if you must. I'm not sure if they allow it, though. Hehe..I definitely recommend IHOP as your next foodie place. The menu is quite extensive (they serve rice meals, too, plus omelettes, crepes, burgers, steaks, and even added -silog meals for the Pinoy foodies) and the service is friendly. As for the price, it may be a bit steep but the taste and quality of the food are so worth it. 
See you at IHOP, guys!
(Aside from the UP Town Center branch, they have, too, in Araneta Center Cubao, 
Century City Mall, SM Mall of Asia, and The Fort)
