It’s December! Time to do some late shopping for gifts and whatnots.
Last Thursday, my beau and I went to do some bit of window shopping for Christmas gifts and to find something “royal blue” to wear for our coming Christmas Party on the 22nd. Unfortunately, I was having a hard time finding the perfect outfit, or at least the required color. It seems that fall colors are still more prominent inside clothing shops… or maybe I just need to check out more. Anyway, we walked for a very long time until such excursion ends up making me hungry. Ha! 😀
Given that we were at Gulf Mall when I started to get hungry (we were at Landmark first), the first place I thought of to eat was at IHOP. It’s been almost a year when I last visited the place so I convinced my beau to eat there again.
And here’s what we ordered…
A cocktail of lemonade, lemon-lime, strawberries, mango syrup etc. These refreshing IHOP splashers are all that!
My beau and I love to eat shrimp. So we always order at least one shrimp dish on every menu if available. In this case, we ordered the Volcanic Shrimp, which is their version of PF Chang’s Dynamite Shrimp and Red Lobster’s Sweet Chili Shrimp. But I think it’s taste is more similar to the latter.
I honestly forgot the name of this pasta dish and I can’t find it in Zomato’s menu, all I remember is that it has “Jambalaya” in it’s name. Anyway, I love the pasta! It was very well-seasoned which is what I liked best.
Speaking of well-seasoned, the omelette isn’t that. Despite it’s very tasty appearance, the omelette just feels bland. It wasn’t the first time I ordered an omelette at IHOP and find it lacking in the salt department. Anyway, it must be the way they cook their omelettes, but I really prefer my meal well-seasoned.
And last but not the least… an IHOP experience is never complete without their signature buttermilk pancakes! The 3 pancakes are free, by the way, since we ordered one of their omelettes.
Here’s also a photo of the pancake’s complementary syrups. I prefer the “Old Fashioned” one. I think nothing beats a classic taste! ❤
So there you have it! Our very scrumptious meal. ❤
