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?
