Who makes the best thousand-layer pancake?

Thousand-layer pancakes have been catching my attention in posts lately. I've never had one. What are they?

Not much on the web and different descriptions, although I now know where to get these in Seattle and Maryland.

Here's what one place said

"Thousand-layer pancake is a many-layered flatbread to tear into hunks and dip in Chinese tea. A sesame-studded rectangle of flaky dough is filled with bits of meat, a sort of breakfast sandwich. "

I'm not sure if they were talking about two things. I would not think you would dip a breakfast sandwich in tea.

Also another place said they were fine to eat by themselves or to mop up sauce. Someone had a dessert thousand-island pancake.

What am I to expect? What is their function? Who serves the best? Ok, who serves the worst for comparison's sake?
