Virginia Madsen: serious chowhound???
Who knew? Anyway, I was surfing around reading reviews and interviews about the movie Sideways (which I loved...go see it!) and found this quote from Ms. Madsen that sounds like a great tip:
If you go up to Solvang, theres a place called Paulas Pancake. And once youve been and youve experienced the Paulas Pancake, you will never be able to forget Paulas Pancake. And Im haunted by this. I would have the Paulas Pancake, eggs, the sausage country sausage - sometimes toast as well. Orange juice, coffee with lots of cream and sugar. A little snack before lunch and this went on all day long. Prime rib for dinner, lots of red wine. It was wonderful because it wasnt about any of that.
Anyone been there? Wish I was there right now!
