IHOP introduces the pancake taco

Pancake Tacos from IHOP

Is it a pancake – or a taco? The answer is yes.

Handheld pancakes are the new craze coming to IHOP restaurants nationwide. IHOP announced this week that it’s introducing both savory and sweet "pancake taco" options to its menu for a limited time.

Inspired by last summer’s "choco-pancake," the restaurant says pancake tacos "bring to life a dish that leverages our best-selling pancakes in an innovative way that is both fun and different to deliver guests a unique dining experience."
