I am usually not a fan of chain restaurants, but some are an exception. For over two months, each Friday , IHOP has been my preferred breakfast option. So I can proudly say I’ve tried almost each pancake it has to offer.The buttermilk pancakes are genuinely fluffy and tasty and I enjoy them with blueberry and old fashioned syrup. The omelets are pretty good, depending on the cook. The place is clean, up to date, and usually busy. I like the caramel hot chocolate, which is served in a huge cup and is delicious. I am also a fan of belgian waffle and the chocolate chip pancakes. The quantity of the food is good and is apt for a single person. But when it comes to other combos, I am a Californian scramble person.
I’ve experienced both best and worst services in IHOP. I usually go to Mall of emirates or Dubai Mall branch. But every time, MOE has served me with better food and better service. I’ve been greeted with a smile and prompt service. I’ve eaten good breakfast served quickly at a fair price.
Talking about my worst experience, it was at IHOP Dubai Mall, where I waited for 45 minutes for my food to come and that too burnt potatoes was what I got at the end. You can see the difference below.
The usual Californian scramble and The Dubai mall version!
The avocado slices were thin and visually off-putting. I don’t know why Dubai mall food lacks in quantity and quality.
Anyhow, the breakfast options are endless and the food is tasty too. Both hot and cold drinks are served here and are usually fresh. I am a big fan of spending my weekend mornings here and i think i’ll continue till IHOP gives me a reason for not to.
So here is my experience about this pancake house. Do share your thoughts about it.
I’ll see you soon with one more!
