This morning I had breakfast at the Original Pancake House and it was wonderful -- I love this place and I've been going for years. I had the 49ers -- thin golden pancakes, remininscent of crepes, served with syrup (but I eat mine with powdered sugar and lemon instead, topping which is usually reserved for the grander German pancake). The 49ers are sweet but not too sweet and have a hint of brown sugar. I also had a fried egg on the side. They fry their eggs perfectly here, hardly any grease on top, and the yolks are almost orange.
Other times I have the German pancake, the big puffy thing as big as you head, served with lemon and sugar -- I love this too, but have found that it is puffier at the Las Vegas location (on Charleston and Decatur) and then get it in Las Vegas once a month or so when I go there, and get the 49ers in Anaheim instead. The bacon is good too.
I have so much fun here, but why are the glasses of water so small and so full of ice?
A strange observation: the food is a notch better on the weekends. For example, my 49ers come out crispier and tastier on Saturdays or Sundays than today. Maybe the best cooks work on the weekend (or thrive under the pressure of long lines of hungry customers).
