Many of you may be familiar with Pancake House, a popular restaurant that has been around in the Philippines since the early 1970s. As the name suggests, it serves fluffy pancakes and yummy waffles alongside mouth-watering main courses, salads, and snacks.
Today, there are more than 160 Pancake House branches in the Philippines and around the world — including Dubai! That’s right, the first ever Pancake House in the region was recently opened at Burjuman Centre Mall, which also happens to have a Jollibee branch. Double yay!

Pancake House in Burjuman Centre Mall was opened in partnership with Tablez Food Company, whose CEO, Shafeena Yussuf Ali, shared: “We are extremely excited for what the future holds for Pancake House as it’s now set to cater the same positive vibes and great food not only to Filipino guests living here but to all foodies in Dubai.”
Obviously, Pancake House is known for its pancakes and waffles. Aside from the classic pancake topped with butter and syrup, they also serve Banana Pancakes, Blueberry Pancakes, Walnut Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancakes, and more exciting combinations.
As for the waffles, you can’t go wrong with the Cheese Waffle, Peach Waffle, Chocolate Marble Waffle, and the Caramel-Banana-Walnut Waffle, which tastes as good as it sounds.
