Portland's Original Pancake House in CA

Dutch Baby

Sadly, I only discovered this place when doing a search for a nearby IHOP, of all things. And it was then that I realized that this was one of the pancake shops that we wanted to go to when we were up in Portland - except that they are now all over the country, including here in California.

Anyway, that gruesome looking thing in the photo may look like a charred wreck, but it was actually a specialty of these guys: an oven-baked Dutch baby. It was a bit like a Yorkshire pudding, except of course this one was mildly tangy thanks to a few squeezes of lemon and powdered sugar. And no, it didn't taste burnt at all.
