One winter morning, I woke up at Grandeur Hotel's comfortable king-size bed, kissed the morning sun at the hotel's roof deck and sweetly begged my husband to hop out of the bed and have a breakfast date with me at IHOP! International House of Pancakes, is a newly-opened American restaurant at Mall of the Emirates. Being a pancake-fanatic, I was too ecstatic to dine at IHOP. I couldn't stop talking about it, so at 8:00 am, Ed happily obliged to take me out on a date! :)

(there is also a branch at Dubai Marina)
Every table at IHOP has a set of pancake syrups and a thermal mug for refillable coffee.
|Pancake Syrups: Strawberry, Butter Pecan, Blueberry, Original|
|The thermal mug, which they took since we didn't ordered coffee.|
|Ed's breakfast beverage: mint tea|
|My morning wake-up drink: Swiss Mocha|
For breakfast, I had an omelet and buttermilk pancakes, while Ed had the breakfast sampler and New York Cheesecake pancake. The servings were huge, the food looked delectable, but tasted pretty average. As a pancake-fanatic, I had high hopes of having the best at IHOP, but the flavor didn't even reached half of my expectations. We had a very simple breakfast meal at a very expensive price.
