GHOP

GHOP, as you may have guessed from its name, is a local knock-off of IHOP.  Not satisfied with IHOP’s use of the term “International” (which apparently only includes Canada and Mexico) George, the “G” in “GHOP”, decided to come down and start his own House Of Pancakes right here in Managua.  His son used to work for IHOP in the States and consequently knows all of their recipes. 

Though hilarious in its shameless imitation of style, we find it easy to forgive because of the (usually) tasty food, the air conditioning and free wi-fi.

  1. Amazing they are getting away with it. I would think IHOP would eventually be after them.

  4. Well, as I looked at the plates you all had ordered (I suppose), I didn't see ANY pancakes! Maybe it should be named GHOO, or GHOPC, GHOB...you get the idea. I've got to admit that the triangular thing looks tempting...GHOTT!
