IHOP Introduces Massive Breakfast Feasts Delivered To Your Home

As amazing as American breakfasts are every morning, home cooks will attest that they are a HUGE pain to cook at times, especially if you have a large family to feed. Rather than being stuck doing an hours worth of dishes after a relaxing meal, wouldn’t it be easier to order out?

IHOP was wondering the same thing and is now offering a selection of Family Feast Meals that you can order and have delivered straight to your home.

There are four feasts customers can choose from depending on their cravings:

IHOP’s Breakfast Family Feast features 16oz of scrambled eggs, 4 servings of hash browns, 8 bacon strips, 8 sausage links and your choice of 8 pancakes, 8 French toast triangles, or 12 Belgium Waffle triangles.

The Pancake Creations Family Feast with Sausage or Bacon gives you 8 buttermilk pancakes, 4 servings of scrambled eggs and hash browns, 8 pieces of meat, and a choice of two pancake toppings. This includes glazed strawberries, blueberry compote, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce, vanilla sauce, mini cheesecake bites, Lucky Charms cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, and Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries cereal.

There is also a Lunch/Dinner Feast for those looking to step outside the warm comforts of breakfast foods which includes 16 pieces of buttermilk Crispy Chicken Strips with your choice of dipping sauce, a basket of mini churros and icing dipping sauce, and a basket of fries. You can, however, sub out the fry basket for buttermilk pancakes or Belgium waffles if you’re looking for that chicken and waffle action.

Customers can order their Family Feasts for an average price of about $24.99, though prices may vary depending on your location. IHOP is also releasing a new Classic American Breakfast sandwich too, for those looking for a lighter dining choice. All options are available for takeout, delivery, or curbside pickup.

Well, it appears Seattle’s Crawfish King can accommodate just that with enough shellfish to keep a group of old friends from falling out of touch.

The seafood bar and restaurant is the home of an entree they call the Royal Feast. So what makes this feast so royal? Crawfish King’s platter lives up to its name by boasting a massive cornucopia of seafood delights all crammed into a miniature wooden ship.

Utensils Not Necessary For This Massive Filipino ‘Kamayan’ Feast

A kamayan style dinner in Filipino cuisine is one where utensils are not used and an extraordinary amount of food is eaten with one’s hands only. The impressive spread is served on top of banana leaves and can feature a decadent list of Filipino dishes that range from crispy fried pork belly (lechon kawali) to sweet cured sausages (longanisa) to a whole fried tilapia. Such tasty items rest atop a mountain of rice and make for a true eye-gasm on its incredible presentation alone.

Though this setup sounds like something out of your deepest cravings and wildest food fantasies, such a lavish feast can be found at MFK By Aysee in Anaheim, California. The modern Filipino restaurant serves up kamayan feasts on the regular, accommodating large parties to fulfill their insatiable appetites.

Served up by Chef Henry Pineda, the kamayan feast at MFK By Aysee is the perfect meal for your whole crew. Squad goals are easily met with one giant kamayan spread. Just imagine gathering up a proper band of hungry foodies, all with the singular objective to go HAM on the festive gala of gluttony laid before you.

Yeah, I know, I’m drooling, too.

We Held A Great Feast At Harry Potter World’s ‘Three Broomsticks’

Attention all you witches and wizards out there hungry for some magic. Prepare to gorge on the most lavish platter of luscious meats and vegetables the Wizarding World has ever seen.

Surely this must be some kind of sorcery.

We were invited to the Three Broomsticks restaurant, located at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Hollywood, to join in on the Great Feast.

The Great Feast Platter featured succulent meats of roasted chicken and BBQ spareribs, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob, and a garden salad. Each platter feeds a wizard family of four, with an additional charge to add a lingering Muggle or two.

So as your arms burn with the righteous pain of the Dark Mark, eat and strengthen yourselves for what’s to come.

Voldemort is returning to power and he’ll need as many brave witches and wizards available to join his noble cause.

Also, don’t forget to wash down your meal with plenty of Butter Beer.

Disney’s New Animated Short Film ‘Feast’ is Worth the Price of ‘Big Hero 6’ Alone

feast-disney-pixar-short

It’s the story of a dog who loves to eat with an owner who’s equally willing to live and die with the same passion.

If you’re looking for a reason to go see Disney’s new animated feature Big Hero 6 because the current 91% Tomatometer isn’t enough, make that reason the animated short “Feast” they run before the opening credits. As if you needed another reason to see Big Hero 6.

“Feast,” is a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

To see the flick, we have a trailer below, but you’ll need to get yourself to a movie theatre and do yourself a favor. The short alone is worth the admission price of Big Hero 6.

Latest Disney Short ‘Feast’ Combines Foodie Life and Dogs

feast

As perfect as 2007’s Ratatouille was for food lovers and Disney fans, we understand if it’s a little hard to root for a rat cooking in your kitchen, touching your gourmet French foods. But a food movie about a dog? That we can totally get behind.

From the folks who did Paperman — that adorable black and white short about paper airplanes —  Feast is an upcoming Disney short which aims to combine most of what the internet loves into one 6-minute cartoon: animals, food, romance, and a heart-wrenching, time-jumping montage à la the beginning of Up.

According to Variety, Feast tells a “human romance from the p.o.v. of the couple’s pet dog, a Boston Terrier named Winston,” imagined in the frame of “whatever Winston happened to be eating” at the time. Based on Variety’s description, this translates to junk food during his master’s bachelor days, Brussels sprouts when he starts dating a hippie chick, and eventually a whole restaurant filled with steak, spaghetti, and ice cream, presumably when the guy finally finds “the one.”

First premiered Tuesday at the Annecy Intl. Film Festival, Feast is set to screen ahead of Disney’s upcoming full-length feature Big Hero Six, in theaters November 7.
