I woke up a bit too early today and while I’m sipping a cup of coffee, my thoughts was filled with IHOP’s new Filipino Breakfast line. Last week was my first time at IHOP. It was really nice that my first time there was welcomed with the launch of their Filipino Breakfast line. Although I prefer fruits and yogurts or soft boiled eggs most of the time, I am a big garlic rice and pinoy breakfast fan. Well, aren’t we all?? heehee..
IHOP started offering Filipino breakfast on their menu last March 17, 2014.
According to Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurants Concepts, Inc. (GRCI), the Philippine partner of IHOP Restaurants, “These Filipino favourites will be exclusively offered in the Philippines for a limited time. IHOP Restaurant’s pancakes, omellettes, stuffed French toasts, crepes, and other American items have become instant hits since we opened a year ago. With IHOP’s enthusiastic approval, we’re proudly introducing a menu that expands our appeal just as we’re expanding our location”
And expanding is what they really are! This popular chain will open up two more branches this Summer. One in Century Mall and one in Filinvest, Alabang. They are also looking to open up six more locations across Metro Manla before the year is done.
IHOP has five new Filipino offerings namely: Breakfast Beef Tapa, Savory Pork Longganisa, Classic Chicken Tocino, Classic Pork Tocino, and Lean Chicken Sausage. I like everything because all were equally tasty, tender, and juicy but the Savory Pork Longganisa is what I love best. It has the texture of an american sausage but the taste of true blue pinoy longganisa.
BTW, each Filipino breakfast can be ordered with a choice of the following:
Berry Berry Brioche French Toast & Peaches and Cream brioche French Toast
Stuffed French Toast with Strawberry topping
Belgian Waffles & Buttermilk Pancakes
These Filipino breakfasts were downed with IHOP’s Splashberry (₱175), a blend of juicy red strawberries, lemon-lime soda and premium orange juice.
With Summer peeking in, IHOP also launched four new ice cream parfait flavors which they co-created with Nestle Ice Cream. Check out the flavors below:
Mango Peaches and Cream (₱195) is composed of generous Scoops of Mango and Vanilla Ice Cream served with peaches and IHOP’s special Granola
Mixed Berry Parfait (₱245) – Chocolate Ice Cream smothered with cool strawberry and blueberry toppings, drizzled with creamy yogurt and finished with oatmeal streusel on top.
Childhood Memories (₱195), which I think has the coolest name among all four ice cream parfaits, is a taste of childhood in a cup filled with vanilla ice cream layered with strawberry and blueberry syrups and topped with crispy golden hash brown and cheesecake bits.
Chocolate Decadence (₱245) is indeed very decadent with IHOP’s very own Butter Pecan syrup, dark chocolate and white chocolate chips, and maple candied bacon all perfectly topped on scoops of chocolate ice cream.
These ice cream treats will be available all throughout the summer.
Thanks to the nice people behind IHOP Philippines for inviting me for brunch last week, that Savory Pork Longganisa is haunting me in my dreams.

Ok ah, IHOP serving silog meals. I wish may ganyan rin sa mga IHOP dito sa California 🙂
IHOP adjusted their menu to cater to more Pinoys. 🙂
In short, iHop has now -Silog meals. I bet they are indeed a hit. Really who could resist silogs.
Yeah! But the serving is big enough for two!
You had me salivating with those pics! I love Filipino breakfast food. Our entire family also loves French Toast and desserts so I have no doubt we’ll enjoy these new offerings. We’ve only been to IHOP once, last year on my birthday. I guess, it’s time to go back!
Try the Pork Longganisa! It’s my fave among the Pinoy dishes.
Wow! It’s nice that they personalized the menus for us FIlipinos. Although Ive been hearing bad reviews about them. Is the line still long if youre a regular customer?
The line is not long anymore because there are many branches na.
Haven’t tried iHop pa. I’m too lazy to queue for our turn. Hopefully soon! I’m excited for the desserts 🙂
The line is not long anymore. Marami na kasing branches.
Since I watched I Am Sam, I was wanting to have a meal at iHop. Sadly, it hasn’t transpired yet. I seriously want to try that Stuffed French toast!
It is so delicious!
I can’t wait to try beef tapa and desserts! Food pictures looks so palatable.
Thanks Emiliana. Try the Pork Longganisa. It’s the best!
Do you know how fantastic that all looks? I am sitting here eating my boring oatmeal looking at these pics and wanting it all!
Yeah, I was just reminded how delicious this can be…
The beef tapa looks so good! I didn’t really enjoy my experience when I first went to IHOP last year, but since they’re opening a branch in Alabang soon, I think I’m gonna go give it another try.
Give the pork longganisa a try as well.It’s really good!
