IHOP customer blasts those who order grilled tilapia

A TikToker named GONER (@crygoner) on the popular social media platform has reached out to IHOP customers who order grilled tilapia at the popular breakfast chain.

The creator touches on a feeling many people seem to have about people who frequent specialty stores, but then order something from that chain that’s outside of the realm of what they’re known for. It would be like going to Shake Shack and just getting a chicken sandwich, or going to Dunkin’ Donuts just to buy a bottle of Diet Coke from the fridge.

In the clip, the creator looks at the IHOP menu and focuses on the Grilled Tilapia menu option. If you’re unfamiliar with the fish, it has become popular in recent years because the species is easy to breed, high in protein, and is considered an extremely healthy protein that can be purchased at a reasonable price.

Interestingly, there is no record of the fish being eaten in the United States prior to 1992. Due to its ease of preparation and known as a high-protein seafood option, a strong marketing push culminated in it being offered in more restaurant branches across the United States. Wholesalers stock frozen fish fillets, and it’s so popular that even the International Pancake House sells it.

Despite its popularity, the TikToker wonders what kind of person goes to a popular breakfast chain to order grilled fish.

“Yo, so if you go to IHOP and order the grilled tilapia, what’s up? Like, what trauma are you dealing with right now?” he says in the short clip.

The official IHOP TikTok account responded to the video with the comment, “The trauma is called hunger.” However, there were other viewers who offered their own theories in the comments section.

Some people agreed, saying it’s “pointless” to go to IHOP and order something like this, while others said the chain at least offers lower-calorie, high-protein meals for those who want to eat out while they get their macros in for the day. And then there were those who couldn’t believe the price of the meal since the tilapia served at IHOP was most likely frozen, they speculated.

“I think it’s for Catholics,” one user offered.

“They are known for their fresh seafood,” wrote another viewer.

“16.29? for frozen fish?” asked one user.

Others shared their own similar experiences with unusual food at restaurants.

“Bro, one time my friend ordered his ‘Thanksgiving Dinner’ in July,” shared one user.

“I understand, and it’s a $17 value. I order mine with a tall glass of iced milk,” wrote another.

One user questioned the incredulity of the menu choices, writing, “Like what decisions led to this decision.”

As much slander as the IHOP cichlid received in the comments, however, there were some who spoke out for its palatability.

“It’s really very good,” claimed one user.

“It’s a healthy meal,” agreed another viewer.

The Daily Dot has contacted the creator via TikTok comment and IHOP via email for more information.
