Many people may be surprised by some of the more elaborate secret menu items at IHOP, but some guests will be excited to learn they can recreate a fan favorite. When the Cinn-A-Stacks left the menu, the tears flowed faster than warm maple syrup. Luckily, Spoon University devised a simple way to bring those flavors back to the table. Simply ask for cinnamon spread, which is used in the Cinnamon French Toast, to be served with buttermilk pancakes. It is a genius menu hack.
While many people will order the wow factor secret menu items, like the spinach and asparagus risotto or even steak tartare, there are plenty of simple food choices as well. From being able to order off the kids menu regardless of your age, or asking for real eggs in your omelet instead of egg substitute, the printed IHOP menu only holds part of those internationally flavored delights (via Menuism). Sometimes it pays to be creative, ask questions at a restaurant, and step beyond that traditional food order. Wonder if a guest could create their own special menu hack with some twist on that Rooty Tooty Fresh N’ Fruity? It could be the best IHOP secret menu item yet.
