Pancake House: Presenting All Our Classic Favorites From Their Menu Selection (Robinson's Place)

Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines

When I was young, I was like any other kid, I loved the pinoy-style spaghetti.  There were only two places we'd frequently dine for it and that is Yum Yum Tree Coffee Shop and Pancake HouseI'd We frequented Pancake House more because it had more branches and it survived while Yum Yum Tree Coffee Shop closed down.

Pancake House used to have a really retro interior with orange and pink booths and huge movie posters of the latest movies and newspaper designed wallpaper.  Being big movie fans, my siblings and I, would always have fun counting the new movie posters that has been placed up since our last visit and quiz each other of their plots.  Dining there for gazillion of times, I can still vividly remember the place.

Over the years, Pancake House has toned down its interiors into a more common and casual look.  But, the food is still the same.  So let's get on with the food...

In this post, I'll present all our classic favorites.  We've been ordering the same thing since forever!

Mom's Pancakes & Waffles: Pancakes
classic pancakes
Classic (169 php/3 pieces)
Pancake House' pancakes are still the best in my book!  (Other than my mom's of course).  It's moist, soft and fluffy.  We always order the Classic because we love their buttermilk.

mushroom omelette
Mushroom Omelettes (147 php)
The Mushroom Omelettes is the first omelettes I've ever tried in my life.  It's still the best for me.  (Again, other than my mom's!)  What I love about it is the perfect combination of the mushroom and cheese.

Patio Pasta

Crispy Bacon on Asparagus and Mushroom Tagliette (186 php)
The Crispy Bacon on Asparagus and Mushroom Tagliette is one of my latest discoveries at Pancake House.  It is topped with shitake mushrooms, asparagus, capers and bacon. 

spaghetti with meat sauce
Spaghetti with Meat Sauce Regular (175 php)
The Spaghetti with Meat Sauce is hands down the best pinoy-style spaghetti for me.  (Again, other than my mom's =p)  I just love the bold meaty flavor with the right blend of sweetness.  I also like the the really buttery and garlicky tasted garlic bread that comes with it.

Hale and Hearty Mains: Main Course
classic pan fried chicken
Classic Pan Fried Chicken (213 php/3 pieces)
I also love their Classic Pan Fried Chicken.  It has a perfect crunchy skin and juicy meat.  What makes it different from the rest is that the oil is not evident.

Special Sets
house special set
House Special Set (257 php)
I sometimes crave for their Best Taco in Town too.  In that case, I order the House Special Set which has the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, Best Taco in TownClassic Pan Fried Chicken and garlic bread. 
roast beef special
Roast Beef Special (273 php)

My brother is loves their Roast Beef Special served with casaer salad and iced tea.

On some days, I also order their Club House and Vanilla Milk Shake.  Their Vanilla Milk Shake is the first milkshake I've ever tried.  It used to be my mom and I's dining tradition to order and share one.  As I grew up, I became conscious about sugar and calories so I skip it once in awhile then order it again whenever I miss it. =p

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Pancake House will always hold a special place in my foodie heart.  I'm glad I can always go back and revive old memories in every visit.  I'm very pleased with their consistency and I certainly hope they keep it that way.
