REVIEW: Ordering Non-pancake Items at Pancake House

Pancake House is known for… well... pancakes.  A staple breakfast fare in the West, normally served with sweet fruits or syrup of your choice.


Well, I being the nonconformist girl that I am, I decided to try another breakfast fare item on the menu when I once found myself eating at their Blue Wave, Pasay branch.

Pancake House in Bluewave, Pasay City

First off, I ordered the Perfect Match (Php 210) – composed of crispy bacon strips (hmmm…pork butt…), a hash brown, 2 pieces eggs, 2 pieces toast (actually this is just one loaf sliced cut diagonally, but still Pancake House prefers to call this a 2 piece toast) and choice of coffee or tea. The meal also includes butter but for those wishing for an alternative, strawberry jam can be requested instead.


Mom, on the other hand, decided to have their Continental Eggs (Php107).  Meal was composed of 2 eggs, a hash brown, 2 pieces (daw) toast and a pat of butter. She also an asked for an additional order of sweet ham (Php 89).



My comments on our meal experience?

1. I was dismayed by our first waiter.  An unintelligent caveman-like grunt was our welcome greeting!

2. My toast was toasted to one side only. Last I checked, toast should be toasted on both sides.


3. The strawberry jam looked and tasted like Jellyace. No kidding.


4. The hash brown was ok but nothing really spectacular. I guess I was still under the spell of the heavenly hash brown I had from Mom & Tina’s (please click here for my review) that I was sort of expecting the same quality as well.

5. And to top it all off, our table had an opened, torn packet of sugar. I mean, it's ok if the packet was accidentally left at the table. But, man! The torn side was placed inside the canister, with the not torn edge sticking out, to make it look like it was an unopened pack!


Chalk one up for experience. As expected, we won’t be coming back to their Blue Wave branch very soon.  Shame, really, since I love their lunch specials.  =(

  1. I ate at the Boracay branch Pancake House and I found disappointment with the food, prices and staff. I took 6 others with me for breakfast which was way overpriced for two eggs, meat that was like jerky and a small tiny cup of coffee upon when I asked for a small warm up I was told that I had to buy a whole cup of coffee for 85 pesos. I just hate that place now. The pancakes tasted like it was bought at the local grocery store, nothing special at all.

    1. In fairness to Pancake House, some of the other branches I've tried was ok. Although they do have problems with service. =(

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one.

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
