A good breakfast sets a good mood for the entire day! I am a true believer in the saying that we should eat breakfast like a King (or a Queen in my case :-P). Breakfast is important not only to nourish your body but also serves as the most important meal of the day. My ideal weekend calls for an indulgent lazy morning brunch with sweet and savoury offerings that help gain strength with a few added calories 🙂
Located right at the corner of the walk, IHOP is a great spot to grab a bite and either head into town or out onto the beach. The place is clean and cozy and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather Dubai has been experiencing. The best part about their menu is that there are simple, no fussy dishes but there are simply too many choices and yes, they all look good 😀 Their dish sizes are nothing short of overly generous as is their service. Be prepared to leave over stuffed, over happy and completely won over 🙂
Get Set Gobble
Starting your day with some warm Cappuccino helps fire you up and kick-starts your day. The coffee was served generously in a large cup. The Hot Chocolate also seemed like the perfect choice to help us get going and I loved the dollop of whipped cream on top.
We ordered a portion of Monster mozza sticks that were 5 thick mozzarella cheese sticks coated with breadcrumbs and fried to crispy perfection. Served with marinara sauce, we promise you’ll love them.
What to eat for breakfast can often be a tough question for many. We found our answer with the Pancake combo that allowed us to choose from 2 pancakes on the menu with our choice of 2 eggs on the side along with hash browns and 2 beef bacon strips or veal sausages…and guess what?!..we chose them both 😀 The server suggested we try the New York Cheesecake pancakes and we couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to taste them. Filled with cheesecake and topped with strawberries, icing sugar and whipped cream they were delicious enough to melt your heart. You can’t go wrong if you drizzle on some Blueberry, Butter pecan, Old fashioned or Strawberry sauce on top. We like our eggs sunny side up and these are the prefect item to add to your morning routine. Not only does this dish promise to leave you thoroughly satisfied but also gives you a great energy boost.
Cheeseburger was a generously sized burger with a patty layered with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and onions. The burger came with a side of deliciously spiced fries. With the goodness of meat and veggies, it’s perfect to help jump-start your day. I like the fact that they use grilled brioche buns that help alleviate the flavour of the dish.
Treat yourself to the taste of Berries and Cream waffle that are nutritious and filling. It has a topping of caramel cream, mixed berries and icing sugar that make you go back again and again for yet another bite!
IHOP certainly lived up to it’s name and delivered a scrumptious breakfast so we grabbed a fork and indulged away!
