Pancake Original Story

Time Out says

It was exactly 2:35pm, when the line in front of this diner got broken off, making me the last customer of the day. These people behind me had already waited for a half hour, yet, despite their disappointment, seemed to understand that it’s what happens here.

So, what's the obviously popular taste like? There are 3 types prepared as “American brunch”. Among them, the most popular one is A Camel’s Story (16,000 won), which comes with buttermilk pancakes, sausage pastries, pink sausage, two eggs, bacon and country potatoes (or salad). What’s great is that, for eggs, there 4 ways to choose from: scrambled eggs, sunny side up, over-easy and poached eggs. The star of the meal was the chocolate-chip pancakes (9,000 won), though. Less expensive than most of the chained diners, they’re light and soft without being too fluffy (which happens with too much baking soda). And, talking about chocolate chips! There’s such a generous amount of them in those good old fashioned goodness.

When craving home-style pancakes, Pancake Original Story would be an easy, filling choice. Mind you, though, the space is very small and seats are placed extremely close to each other here. If you’re not into hearing irrelevant stories, you might want to go for a takeout.
