What / Where I Ate in Buena Park, California, U.S.A. - IHOP Restaurant

It was the first day of the expo (the primary reason why I travelled to the United States of America) and we need to have full breakfast as we were expecting an exhausting day.  That day, we were already rented with a car and we can drive and eat anywhere we wanted.  It was a unanimous decision that we have to try one of the famous breakfast houses in America, which is IHOP Restaurant.

IHOP is actually just an acronynm of the eatery's longer full name which is International House Of Pancakes.
And by its name, obviously, one can expect that their main offering is PANCAKE!

My officemate, Sheynne and I ordered for the BEST COMBO on the menu, as pictured above.  F.Y.I., we equally shared one order of the combo.

As a blogger, I also have this propensity to do in-depth reading to acquire more information of the restaurants I am reviewing.  And when I researched about IHOP,  they have been around in the food industry for almost 6 decades (next year).  Imagine that!  

What I have also appreciated with this restaurant is the philosophy they have created, implemented and imbibed for their brand: (1) Come as you are; (2) Savor every minute; (3) Go with the flow; (4) Be good to yourself; and; (5) Get it anytime.  I am inspired.

So very gratified to see the pancakes, larger than life.  I was already starving that time.  They also offered a motley of syrups that were ready on the tables, see photo below.  You can play around, mix everything, if you wish.

Cafe Chronicles: SLT Cafe

A cafe inside a supermarket? A clever idea!

Yes, Sweet Little Things Cafe, more known as SLT Cafe has one of its branches situated inside a grocery store.  This particular branch of SLT Cafe is located at the Ground Floor, Fooda Saversmart, F. Cabahug Street, Mabolo, Cebu City. 

And these were the goodies that we ordered:

Brownie Ala Mode  My rating: 8 of 10

Blue Berry Crumble Cupcake My rating: 6 of 10

Frost Coffee Mocha My rating: 7 of 10

My overall rating: food + ambiance + service + value for money = 6.5 of 10. 
The sweets are okey (meaning, they tasted "just right" / "so-so")  but the ambiance is not as comfy compared to those typical cafes.
