The Original Pancake House in Falls Church, VA now offers gluten-free pancakes using Bob’s Red Mill GF blend, milk, egg and canola oil. The pancakes did taste good — we got one order of blueberry and one of pecan — (choices also include plain, banana and chocolate chip — not as many choices as the regular pancakes boast at OPH). Shredded potatoes tasted like canola oil, which does no one any favors. We got some turkey links that were okay (not guaranteed nitrite-free or anything), an a fried egg that wasn’t too pale in the yolk, and the real maple syrup was indeed probably worth the extra money (can’t remember if it was 50 cents or $1.50, but who wants anything that’s probably half corn syrup?). Decaf was not memorable either way.
I was calling it my last big carb binge before trying to seriously start a more veg-focused diet (including juicing and more raw food), but it was fun to be able to have breakfast out in the world for once. It’s better at home, of course, but I’m still really glad they are offering the GF cakes.
