Because of all this talk about IHOP, I have been seriously craving for breakfast food lately. Last Sunday, T and I couldn't leave Alabang for our usual fundate so we went to Grams Diner in Molito Commercial Complex instead.
While I was still in law school, Grams Diner was my go-to restaurant when I wanted comfort food. Unfortunately, Rockwell Land had to demolish the complex where Grams Diner was located to make space for a new condominium. The upside is that, not long after, they opened a branch in Alabang.
It's such a happy, happy place that on your birthday, you get to eat for free! *placing a reminder on my calendar*
Plus, they have television sets that show NBA games. Super plus points for T.
Their menu is different now but they still have the old favorites mixed in with new dishes such as the Tapa Burger found on the cover of the menuzine (menu + magazine).
It was the first time I noticed that all glasses had the Grams Diner logo embossed on them. Nice.
T and I love how Grams has this authentic diner feel without trying too hard unlike other restaurants that claim to be diners.
One of the reasons why T and I opted to go to Grams Diner instead of Pancake House is because of their milkshakes. That morning, T got the Whopper's Malt (P195/$5).
I, on the other hand, love that they have unlimited coffee called Grams Always Full Home Brew (P90/$2.25).
Now on to the food...
T got the Burstin Breakfast (P320/$8) which has bacon, breakfast sausage, and ham served with two fried eggs, home fries and toast. According to Grams Diner, "this is one breakfast that needs commitment!" And we can all see why.

My Eggs Benny (P290/$7.25) or simply Eggs Benedict on toasted English muffin and ham topped with rich Hollandaise sauce and served with home fries, looked so little compared to what T ordered.
We also asked for two extra orders of bacon (two slices of bacon per order).
Just when we were about to finish our meals, T told me he was still hungry! I thought he was kidding until he called our server and ordered the Breakfast for Winners (P250/$6.25). One third pound burger patty, smothered with gravy, paired with fried eggs and fried rice... All in his stomach in under 15 minutes. Amay-za-zing.
It was a really nice Sunday afternoon. And like what T always says, "It's never too late to eat breakfast"...
...Whichwhy we'll always love Grams Diner :)
Good ol' comfort food.
Value for money.
Of course we'll be back!
