A griddle cake gourmand. A harbinger of hotcake hauteur.
A flapjack fanatic if you will.
But we come before you this morning with hat in hand. Not as johnny cake judge and jury, but as a seeker of higher truth when it comes to griddled greatness.
And the question posed is this: Is there a better blend of buttermilk battered beauty in the Vegas Valley than the everyday cakes at Du-par’s?
To look at them you see nothing special. Other than just the right color and crust.
But one bite reveals a tangy, bread-y fluff that few flapjacks can duplicate. (It’s the buttermilk of course, working its magic, but it’s also the skill of the short order cooks who know how turn them out perfectly every time.)
Are they the best in Las Vegas?
We think so, but, of course, we haven’t tried every, single flapjack flipper in our humble burg.
So, we ask you, our loyal readers: Is there a more wonderful confluence of cake and pan anywhere in town?
If so, please advise.
If not, we’ll see you at Du-par’s.
Rather than at the Douglas’s:
