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).

On the side was a potato tartlet. It was a large, fancy tater tot with a delicious chive sour cream to balance.
Every breakfast dish came with a refreshing shot of fruit smoothie (in our case, it was raspberry). We thought this was a neat little addition to our breakfast. Continue reading
