Remember all those questions about western breakfast?

I think I found out why:

Quote:
One of the stranger sights from my recent trip to Japan were the lines, some 50-people deep, for American-style breakfast restaurants with names like Eggs'n Things. As odd as it might sound, whipped cream- and strawberry-topped pancakes are the it food in Tokyo right now.

As The Oregonian reported here and here, Southeast Portland's DIY Slappy Cakes was recently swept up in Tokyo's pancake craze, opening a location -- backed by Japanese investors -- in the Shinjuku Station area earlier this year.

Now, a Portland institution is following suit. According to Time Out Tokyo, Southwest Portland's Original Pancake House will open a restaurant in Tokyo's Kichijoji neighborhood in June, complete with the 60-year-old restaurant's famed Dutch Baby and apple pancakes.

And for any other Portland-area pancake-slingers out there, it might be time to brush up on that Nihongo.


Now if we could just find LittleK's underwire.....

I like pancakes well enough, but to me, it ain't breakfast without a high grease quotient . . . fried eggses, bacon or sausage links, biscuits and gravy . . .

I have health nut breakfast six days a week. But on Sunday, it's eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits, jam or jelly - To me, even a health nut can benefit from the change.

@edgarblythe,
Is Health Nut a brand of cereal, or do you get it from the produce section?

@boomerang,
Did you know some obsessive nut tagged all those threads 'western breakfast?'

That was me. Must've been the wine.

Anyway, they are now all easy to search.

@ossobuco,
That was you!?

Haha. THAT took some dedication. There were a lot of threads about western breakfast!

I always assumed that it was some class assignment -- write about western breakfasts.

Now I think they were just stealing our recipes.

@jespah,
I think Mo must be a Hobbit.

I've seen him come home from school saying it's time for "other lunch".

@boomerang,
I thought it was a class too.

I admit being nuts. I pretty much tagged all the related to food threads at the changeover - and by that point took the western breakfasts as iconic.

Butryflynet tagged some in those early days..

They make pancakes out of Dutch babies? How do the Dutch feel about that?

@joefromchicago,
I think they sprinkle lemon and confectioner's sugar on them.
