I have not been to an IHOP in forever so when I heard about all their new menu items I jumped on the chance to check them out!! I am not a huge breakfast fan so I love that they have a ton of menu items including great lunch and dinner choices.
What I wasn’t thinking about was that lots of other people like IHOP and would be there for a Sunday brunch. Luckily Monkey Girl was a good sport and the wait wasn’t too long.
IHOP’s new pancake varieties include:
Red Velvet Pancakes– Rich, chocolaty red velvet pancakes, drizzled with cream cheese icing, a dusting of powdered sugar and crowned with whipped topping.
Sweet Strawberry Pancakes– Fluffy famous buttermilk pancakes crowned with cool strawberries in glaze, drizzled with cream cheese icing and crowned with whipped topping.
Whole Wheat Pancakes with Banana – Wholesome and lightly sweet fluffy whole wheat pancakes topped with fresh sliced bananas.
We knew right away that Monkey Girl would like the Red Velvet Pancakes.
They were moist and decadent without being to sweet or rich. I loved that they also came with a combo where we could get her eggs, bacon and hashbrowns. I am a big believer in having a good protein source with every meal!
I was about to get a BLT (because IHOP does bacon well) when I came across the Nutella crepes…. three egg batter crepes filled with “the original creamy, chocolaty hazelnut spread”™ Nutella® and fresh slices of banana, topped with cool strawberry topping and whipped topping. And I was hooked. I had to have them, love them, and will now be dreaming about them!!
My husband decided to stick to his traditional route and got an omelet and toast. The nice thing was, there was plenty of food to go around and we were all able to sample each other’s items!
