IHOP Philippines launched it's brand new limited time offer COMFORT FOOD FAVORITES in all six branches

Written By clapalisoc on Wednesday, 11 May 2016 | 13:02

IHOP is a regular thing for my small family. My daughter loves pancakes and IHOP's "Funny Face" is her ultimate favorite. So, when I was invited to a  looloo event at IHOP, it was an instant yes! I though it was the perfect chance to try some of their dishes that I haven't tried yet.

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. 

IHOP Philippines Comfort Food Favorites

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.

IHOP Philippines Iced Mocha
Iced Mocha (refillable) for 145Php

To start off, we were asked for our preferred beverage and since I've tried their Splashers, 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 --

IHOP Philippines Appetizer Sampler
Appetizer Sampler for 425php

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!

IHOP Philippines Southern Fried Chicken
Southern Fried Chicken - 1pc. for 195Php, 2pcs. for 295Php

Southern Fried Chicken - part of their Comfort Food Favorites Menu, 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 Philippines IHOP Tacos Soft shell
Soft Shell IHOP Tacos - Single for 125Php, Double for 195Php

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!

IHOP Philippines Banana Crepe with Nutella
Banana Crepe with Nutella for 225Php

Banana Crepe with Nutella - 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.

IHOP Philippines Corned Beef Hash
Corned Beef Hash for 275Php

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

IHOP Philippines Big Steak Omelette
Big Steak Omelette for 395Php

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. It's a big chunk of omelette that's really filling, with lots of meat inside, hash brown, mushroom and tomatoes. We always 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.

New York Cheesecake Pancake for 255Php

Oh this one I highly recommend because it has generous chunks of cheesecake cubes inside! You can also order this on it's own.

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

IHOP Philippines Breakfast Sampler Split Decision
Split Decision Breakfast Sampler for 325Php

This has 2 eggs (cooked according to your preference), 2 bacon strips, 2 pork sausages, 2 triangles of French Toast and 2 buttermilk pancakes (that you can also upgrade!).

IHOP Philippines Breakfast Sampler
Breakfast Sampler for 395Php

This has 2 eggs (cooked according to your preference), 2 bacon strips, 2 pork sausages, 2 pieces of ham, hash brown and 2 buttermilk pancakes. Pretty heavy breakfast that's for sharing!

IHOP Philippines menu items

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!
