Unbelievably true – pancakes at Flapjacks costs only one peso. I had a funny grin the first time I saw fellow blogger Annalyn’s plurk two days ago. It said: “…Flapjacks One Peso Pancakes!!!!” She also blogged about it.
But earlier today, Sago and I made sure that it fits in our afternoon schedule: an after lunch ‘merienda’ at about 1pm right before heading to the AIM Internet Marketing discussion at 2pm.
I summoned the cheapskate in me and headed to Flapjacks Greenbelt 2 right beside Italliani’s . I inquired about the promo and got the nod.
The One peso pancake is actually a promo in celebration of their first anniversary! It started last April 13 and will last until April 17, unless they extend it; hopefully.
It is only valid for merienda from 1pm to 5pm. Before and beyond that, it goes back to its normal price. Furthermore, you could only order a maximum of 3 pancakes per table.
So if you’re coming as a group, sit on different tables and act as if you’re not together. lol. 🙂 Yeah, I think they’re pretty strict about it.
The pancakes do come with butter and a small glass of syrup as well.
With their Original Buttermilk Pancakes at P145 ($3), or even their side order pancake at P65 ($1.3), that is about 98.4% discount for the one peso pancakes.
Aside from the tusok-tusok-the-fishballs in UP Diliman which were then only P0.50 a piece 10 years ago (and perhaps until now), where else can you find one-peso pancakes? Not even from your most destitute favorite side-walk vendor. 🙂
And so I came to Flapjacks with another objective in mind – to purchase my cheapest merienda in years! Yes, I braved the unthinkable, I only ordered 3 pancakes and nothing else. 🙂 (Uhm, it came with a glass of water) *wink*.
And my bill totaled a measly P3.27. The P0.27 was for service charge.
More importantly, the pancakes were delicious and creamy. Cooked just right and served well. I didn’t feel like a poor man who only have 3 pesos to spare, trying to take advantage of their promo. 🙂
The service was outstanding. My simple test-experiment was successful! Thumbs up to the Flapjacks Greenbelt crew from the cook, to the servers.
Oh, before I forget, they also have free wi-fi. At least for the Greenbelt 2 branch.
Hurry, you still have two days to catch on! Happy Anniversary Flapjacks!
Their current branches are:

And that is the Flapjacks story of my cheapest ‘merienda’ ever in a “sosi“(premium) restaurant involving 3 pieces of one peso pancakes with a total bill of P3.27 ($0.07).
