A year after opening its first Philippine location, IHOP® Restaurants in the country are now serving a special menu of five home grown Filipino favorites, which is available throughout the day at all three of its metro locations.
The new Filipino menu offerings are Savory Pork Longganisa, Breakfast Beef Tapa, Classic Chicken or Pork Tocino and Lean Chicken Sausage. All these entrees are served with garlic rice, and two eggs any style with atchara and seasoned vinegar on the side. Each can also be ordered with a choice of IHOP Restaurant’s world famous Buttermilk Pancakes, Stuffed French Toast or Brioche French Toast.
“These Filipino breakfast favorites will be exclusively offered in the Philippines for a limited time. IHOP Restaurant’s pancakes, omelettes, stuffed French toast, crepes, and other American breakfast 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 locations,” said Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts, Inc. (GRCI). The company is the Philippine partner of IHOP Restaurants.
“As a global brand but a local business, our goal is to bring our guests both the classic breakfast items that have made IHOP famous around the world as well as menu items that celebrate and appeal to the local appetites of our guests,” said Daniel del Olmo, President, International, DineEquity, Inc. “These new menu items bring our guests the best that IHOP has to offer with delicious dishes that are unique to the Philippines and truly brings the best of both our culinary cultures to our guest.”
With summer now here, IHOP will also launch four new ice cream parfait flavors co-created with Nestle Ice Cream. The new flavors are Mango Peaches and Cream Parfait, a blend of mango and cheesecake ice cream; Childhood Memories, vanilla ice cream layered with strawberry and blueberry syrups and topped with crispy golden hash brown and cheesecake bits; Mixed Berry Parfait, Chocolate ice cream smothered with cool strawberry and blueberry toppings, drizzled with creamy yogurt and finished with oatmeal streusels on top; and Chocolate Decadence, featuring IHOP’s very own Butter Pecan Syrup, dark chocolate and white chocolate chips and maple candied bacon all perfectly topped on scoops of decadent chocolate ice cream.
IHOP Restaurants are located in W Global Center, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig; UP Town Center, Katipunan Avenue, QC, and in the Entertainment Mall of SM Mall of Asia. The popular chain will open two more branches this summer in Century Mall and Filinvest, Alabang and is looking to open six more locations across Metro Manila before the year is done.
The ice cream treats will be available throughout the summer, along with IHOP’s other breakfast innovations like Brioche French Toast, omelettes, breakfast samplers and crepes.
