I took my mom and my daughter with me because I don’t like eating alone. Ihop was busy but we were quickly seated and now came the hard part. I couldn’t decide which GriddleMelt I wanted. They offer 3 types – Western, Ham and Egg, and Spinach, Roasted Peppers and Cheese. I have been trying new foods lately to break out of my eating rut, so I chose the Spinach, Roasted Peppers and Cheese Griddle Melt. I really loved that I could chose fresh fruit, hash browns or French Fries. I chose the fruit for a delicate balance to such a hearty sandwich.
When our food arrived I couldn’t believe how large my sandwich was. I had ordered the half sandwich because I wasn’t extremely hungry. I am glad I only ordered a half sandwich because it was a big as my daughter’s cheeseburger. I took one bite and knew that I will be going back for more. This grilled sourdough bread practically melts in your mouth. The combination of peppers, onions and cheese creates a medley of flavors bursting with zip and just a little heat.The eggs are delicately wrapped in spinach and add just a hint of breakfast that this sandwich would be perfect for any meal.
I am normally a fast eater but took my time to enjoy all the flavor notes that this sandwich provided. It took almost 30 minutes for our food and waitress to reappear but the food was worth it. My mom did alert the manager after about 28 minutes of our wait and the the issue was quickly corrected. The service was excellent for the remainder of our meal and the manager also discounted our bill by 20% for the inconvenience.
I will be back soon to get another Griddle Melt.
