Now Open: IHOP in Bonifacio Global City

IHOP or International House of Pancakes opened their first branch here in the Philippines to the public, yesterday, February 15. Since it was their first day open and it was a Friday it took about an hour's wait before my friends and I were able to snag a table. The photo above is their second floor, the first floor is used as the waiting area and have a few tables there too.

They offer four different flavors of syrup (the last one's not included in the photo) old fashioned, butter pecan (my favorite), strawberry and blueberry.

Splashberry (refillable) PHP 175
"A blend of IHOP's juicy red strawberries, lemon-lime soda and premium orange juice."

This was extremely refreshing, perfect for when it's hot outside (which is almost all the time here in the Philippines...) Plus each time they refilled my splasher they always made sure to include a couple of fresh strawberries.


Specialty Sampler PHP 275
"One egg, one strip of crispy bacon, one pork sausage link, one piece of ham, hash browns and one buttermilk pancake"
Or if you're feeling extra hungry, you can order the Breakfast Sampler for PHP 395 which is pretty much the same thing, except it's a double of everything including the pancake.

Instead of getting just the plain buttermilk pancake that the Specialty Sampler comes with, my friend Ilka upgraded hers to a Double Blueberry Pancake (buttermilk pancake filled with blueberries and topped with warm blueberry campote and whipped topping), but of course she had to pay extra.

Big Steak Omelette PHP 325
"Tender strips pf steak, hash browns, fresh green peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Served with salsa."

Instead of just getting two plain buttermilk pancakes that the omelette comes with I upgraded it to the New York Cheesecake Pancakes (two fluffy buttermilk pancakes loaded with creamy, rich cheesecake pieces and crowned with cool strawberries, powdered sugar and whipped topping.)

Breakfast food for me is the ultimate comfort food and I love having it anytime of the day. They have endless breakfast choices here, both sweet and savory dishes. But if you're not so keen on breakfast food don't worry because they've got other things on the menu like sandwiches, burgers, salads, dinner meals and more.

Everything was delicious and you can tell that all the ingredients they used were fresh, especially the fruits they used like the blueberries and strawberries. All the waiters are cheery and accommodating, it's just an all in all great casual place to dine no matter who you're with whether you're with your friends, family or a date!
