Pancake House: All-Day Breakfast for Dinner

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." I have heard and read this statement lots of times already -- from my parents, friends and even health magazines and websites. They say that breakfast is the meal that fuels our body to perform its best.

Although there are studies supporting this claim, I usually tend to skip breakfast. However even if I do not eat my morning meals, I very much love the breakfast food items that I eat them at any time of the day.


A few weeks ago after missing breakfast for the nth time, I was craving for some pancakes while also starving to eat a rice meal. We were in Bonifacio High Street that night, and it was a good thing we chanced upon Pancake House. I had already eaten at this casual dining restaurant but have not yet tried anything aside from their pasta and pancakes.


To deviate from the usual items I order from Pancake House, I chose one from their new brown rice dishes, Salmon Cakes with Brown Rice Tabbouleh (P185). It was a nicely plated dish, especially with the Alfalfa sprouts on top.

The Salmon cakes were cooked perfectly -- nice and slightly crispy on the outside, and not too soggy nor too hard on the inside. It also came with a dill mayonnaise dip which made the Salmon cakes more interesting to eat. However as much as I like the flavor of this dish, I found the Salmon cakes too small for the plate of brown rice tabbouleh that comes with it. Good thing though, the rice was flavorful on its own.


My date, on the other hand, had the Bonoan Fish Steak (P208) -- marinated Bangus back, fried and topped with onion rings, served with rice and salted egg. The dish also came with pickled kangkong which I found interesting, but he actually didn't eat.

After our flavorful yet slightly unfilling meal, we ordered their Caramel Banana Walnut 3pcs. Pancakes (P173). As always, the pancakes were cooked perfectly -- light and fluffy. The caramel syrup along with the banana pieces gave the pancake an interesting texture and sweetness, while the walnuts gave it an added nutty-crunch.


For beverages, I had Pancake House's Regular Strawberry Milkshake, while my date had Iced Cappuccino with Ice Cream.

THE VERDICT

Pancake House serves quality food items -- flavorful, nicely cooked and pleasing to the eyes. They also have a wide variety of food selection, and one can probably find an item interesting enough to try. However, be wary that meals at this casual dining restaurant are not for the hefty eaters as their portion size is pretty small. And although I will surely be back at any of their branches, I vow not to visit with a starving stomach.

    Their pancakes are nice, but some of their food are pricey. And whenever we eat there for breakfast I always end up not choosing anythin from the menu and askin my companion to order for me. As to their breakfast, UCC's is far more superior.
