IHOP reintroduces all-you-can-eat pancakes for new year
All-you-can-eat pancakes are back at IHOP.
BY NADINE KAM
So much for that diet resolution. For the new year, IHOP is bringing back its “All You Can Eat” pancakes.
Today through Feb. 14, dine-in guests at participating IHOP restaurants can order either five famous buttermilk pancakes or a short stack of two pancakes with a combo plate of eggs, golden hash browns and their choice of breakfast meats for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Once that initial serving of pancakes has been devoured, guests can keep a short stack of two buttermilk pancakes coming again and again until they’ve had all they can eat.
Guests can choose to add and switch among four toppings—strawberries, blueberries, cinnamon apples and peaches—for one additional cost.
Note that this year Fat Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day, falls on Feb. 9, the last day of feasting and gorging on pancakes before Lent. Pancakes are associated with Shrove Tuesday because making them was a way to use up rich ingredients such as eggs, milk and sugar, before the 40-day fasting of Lent.
