IHOP Southgate (Colorado Springs, Colorado)

IHOP – Southgate
~ 2290 Southgate Rd, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80906 ~ (719) 635-0777 ~

Out of the Colorado Springs locations, this International House of Pancakes is one of the best. Who doesn’t enjoy IHOP? Its a pancake house worth the wait that you’ll often be greeted with upon entering as IHOP has that reputation. Wide variety of pancakes and all-day breakfast selections, fresh fruit, and delicous fried goods. 24 hours of availability, it will satiate your appetite. Delivery is also fast and efficient. Friendly staff and good food.

Northern Ireland’s Ormo Pancakes off the shelf

Northern Ireland’s ORMO Pancakes
Pancakes on the shelf
* Convenience store in Bushmills, Northern Ireland * http://www.yourormo.com/ *

A unique Northern Ireland treat where you can buy pre-packaged already cooked, just-heat-up instant pancakes from off the shelf. Made by “Ormo pancakes” you can butter straight from the packet, or toast and butter, top with icea cream, fruit, or what-not. The products are baked in South Belfast and spread throughout storefronts in Northern Ireland, whipping up the batter since 1875. Established by Robert Wilson with his brother Samuel, creating a bakery called Wilson and Strain, which evolved into Ormeau Bakery in 1875, and becoming a Northern Ireland favorite for over a century.


Gallagher’s Boxty Restaurant / The Boxty House (Dublin)


The Boxty House

Well as you’ll see from the below rating (click more) the Boxty House has changed, and is not as sensational as it was in 2010 when I last visited. While the name on the front of the store has changed from Gallagher’s Boxty House to “The Boxty House” and the decor/image is all different, the waiter swore it was all the same place as before with a new look. The food however has changed as well. When I visited in 2010 I was sold on the fact this was “traditional Irish fare” and since gaining an Irish wife, was told that this was not typical Irish fare. So the restaurant is riddled with curiosity and intriguing advertising. However, the dining experience was enjoyable, albeit slow service. The food was still good, just not tantalizing as it was when I presume Gallagher was running it. The seafood Boxty was replaced with a Seafood dumpling boxty? which was nothing in comparison. Even the cider seemed to change – that however was still thirst quenching and delicious. Still high priced, tourist bent, that has not changed. Rating: 3 stars out of 5. Visited 12/9/13. [Rating:3]
