A "country fried steak & eggs classic combo platter" at International House of Pancakes provides 1,535 calories, 102 grams of fat, 162 percent of a day's worth of saturated fat, and 123 percent of a day's worth of sodium.
This dish is not advertised as shareable.
Other options don't fare much better.
The omelette feast platter, while clocking in at a less astounding 800 calories, contains 95 percent of the daily saturated fat recommended limit and 40% of a day's worth of sodium.
The "fruity country griddle cakes"? 945 calories, a day's worth of saturated fat, and 81 percent of the daily sodium limit.
The healthy sounding harvest grain and nut pancake combination platter (two bacon strips accompanying these pancakes IHOP describes as made with "hearty grains and wholesome oats")? 1,030 calories, 120 percent of a day's worth of saturated fat, and 86 percent of the daily sodium limit.
These horrifying figures aren't limited to breakfast options.
A seemingly inoffensive Southwestern chicken fajita with tortilla salad adds up to 1,090 calories, 85 grams of fat, a day's worth of saturated fat, and more than half of the daily sodium limit.
And, by the way, shame on IHop for failing to provide nutrition information on their website. These monstrosities should not slip under the radar.
PS: That lovely concoction accompanying this post is IHop's big steak omelette.
