The Molangs came to this particular IHOP because, according to rumors, this long-standing pancake house will be torn down/relocated due to recent developments in Richmond.
IHOP isn’t really just a breakfast joint anymore, as it has pivoted to serve more than pancakes and eggs & bacon. On the menu, one could find items such as sandwiches, burgers, salads, steak, and other diner entrees. All in all, very comparable to Denny’s.
Southwest Scramble – $13.95
Scrambled eggs topped with salsa and avocado. On the side were potato + peppers and onions. This definitely had the southwest ingredients, but the proportions were off. Portion size wasn’t very impressive; especially if you were to compare it with Denny’s. This was still very filling because it came with two pieces of butterscotch pancakes (not pictured).

Chef Big D’s is a diner with a casual and family-friendly environment. They had a rather interesting seating arrangement. At the entrance, they had a sign that says (and I paraphrase): “please seat yourselves at the next available, clean , and vacant table”. Once you sit down, the waiting staff is friendly and quick to hand you menus and water.
In terms of food offerings, you can expect the standard, hearty North American affair: sweet and savory breakfast dishes, and an assortment of sandwiches and burgers. Don’t scoff at their Kids at Heart menu (1/2 portion size). You will know why as you read more below.
(Kids at Heart Size) Beef dip sandwich – $6.50 ($7 with melted cheese)
As you can see, the sandwich was about the size of a 6″ sub. The bun was freshly toasted, and they gave a generous portion (understatement) of juicy and tender roast beef! Dip it in that salty au jus, and receive a foodgasm in your mouth.
All the Kids at Heart dishes come with a soup, salad, or fries. Terrific value isn’t it? The soup of the day was a tomato cream soup that was very tasty. We really liked the addition of red peppers, as it gave the soup another note of flavour. Continue reading
