Denny’s

On the heel of my recent Applebee’s review, I’m going to be talking about another American dining establishment – Denny’s! There is a reason why Denny’s is known as “America’s Diner” – They have been serving delicious comfort food since 1953. Just like most US franchises that I’ve previously reviewed, Denny’s diner was already familiar to me even before they opened up their first branch here. I actually thought that their branch in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, was their first one – Turns out they were also located at Uptown Parade in BGC and in UP Town Center.

During our trip to Tagaytay for the Chinese New Year holiday, we decided to stop over here and have a hearty breakfast before continuing our journey.

Hot Chocolate – This is the second time in a row that I was served creamy, yet bitter-tasting hot chocolate. Eh.

Lucban Longganisa – Flavorful Lucban longganisa served with egg, garlic rice, and vinegar dip.

Cream Cheese Cinnamon Pancake Plate – Two buttermilk pancakes drizzled with cinnamon sauce and cream cheese icing. Served with two eggs plus two strips of bacon and fries. I guess you can say that Denny’s puts the ‘cake’ in ‘pancakes’ because man oh man, just look at the size of those things! But I guess I should already expect this, being an American establishment and all. The dish was loaded with flavor though, and I enjoyed the sweetness of the pancakes despite their huge size (I was never a fan of thick pancakes, TBH). The bacon and the sausages were tasty too, and their saltiness helped balance the flavor of the pancakes.

Loving the look of their maple syrup bottles as well.

I think it’s safe to say that Denny’s is the last place everyone should go to when they want to cut a couple of calories, hehe. I think I gained fifteen pounds just from that pancake platter alone! I would come back to Denny’s for sure, but I think I’m going to try something else next time (and share my dish with a companion too).

Ambiance/Interior: 5/5
