Tis’ the Season for IHOP Pancakes and Malagos Hot Chocolate!



Christmas in the Philippines will always be filled with traditions and good food. This Yuletide season, IHOP is having special limited edition offers by putting its stamp on popular Filipino holiday classics!


Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts Inc., which owns and operates IHOP in the country, shared that holidays are a big part of their campaigns. "We are proud to celebrate this joyous season with our diners with a Filipino touch.”

Visit IHOP and taste for yourself the following Christmas specials:

Savor the Bibingka Pancake, which is served with whole duck eggs, muscovado sugar, and garnished with shredded parmesan, cheddar cheese, and desiccated coconut. It is topped with a scoop of butter and served on a banana leaf.



Let the Dulce de Leche Pancake make the holidays sweeter with two buttermilk pancakes filled with fresh bananas, spread with dulce de leche, topped with a drizzle of dark chocolate syrup, and crowned with whipped cream. 


Then, indulge in Malagos Hot Chocolate where every cup is made with all-natural, single origin beans grown and harvested by Davao’s amazing farmers and cheerfully prepared at IHOP’s kitchen. 


Aside from the seasonal Christmas menu, IHOP makes the dining the experience even more delicious with its collection of mouthwatering burgers and desserts. All burgers come with IHOP’s own secret sauce along with a choice of seasoned fries or onion rings, while the desserts are made with ingredients to satisfy sweet cravings.  

Choose from the Western Hash Brown Burger made of hash browns, American cheese, tomatoes, and bacon; the  Philly Cheese Steak Burger with provolone cheese, Philly meat, green bell pepper, onions, mushroom, and red potato seasoning;  the Cheesy Mac Burger, that puts two comfort food favorites in one because it's made with cheese lovers in mind with Mac & Cheese, bacon, lettuce leaf, dill pickle and more cheese sauce; and the Sunrise Burger made with sun dried tomato pesto, red onion rings, American cheese, and sunny side up egg. 


If you're craving for sweets, go for the Bread and Butter Pudding made of a thick slice of warm bread pudding topped with a generous drizzle of banana caramel sauce, vanilla sauce, honey pecan nuts, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream; and the Stuffed and Rolled Chocolate Crepe filled with cream cheese and choco hazelnut spread, topped with vanilla sauce, dark chocolate syrup, chocolate chips, a side of strawberries, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

This 2014, IHOP opened three new branches in the country as Filipino diners continued to embrace what the brand has to offer. “We launched new food choices in our menu with more hearty options to serve more diners seeking a great place to dine in during the afternoon for meetings or for dinners after work,” Rodriguez says. 


Recently, IHOP Philippines was awarded the International Franchise Operator of the Year Award during the IHOP International Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona.

The popular all-day dining chain is looking to sustain this success for the oncoming year, as it aims to further strengthen its presence in the Philippines. IHOP is slated to open another store in Fairview Terraces, which would be its seventh branch in the country.

To date, IHOP has been serving complete perfect dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner across its branches located in Bonifacio Global City, UP Town Center in Katipunan Avenue, SM Mall of Asia, Century City Mall in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati, Filinvest City in Alabang, and Araneta Center

These branches are open from 7 AM until 11PM on weekdays and until 12 midnight on weekends. The good news is, the flagship branch located at the Bonifacio Global City will be accepting orders 24/7 from December 16 to January 3, 2015.


Aside from in-house food servicing, IHOP is pushing forward its catering services for consumer and corporate events in onsite and offsite locations. 

“At IHOP, Filipino diners get to enjoy all-day dining from original buttermilk pancakes to sandwiches to rib eye steaks,” concludes Rodriguez. “The brand has been serving delicious food for more than five decades, from breakfast to dinner, and we are proud to create new moments and memories with our diners here in the Philippines.”

Apart from IHOP, Global Restaurant Concepts, Inc. also operates Ramen Iroha, the award-winning ramen house from Japan, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), P.F. Chang’s, Gyu-Kaku, and Morelli’s Gelato.
