I have been craving pancakes for weeks. Whenever I ask somebody (or Google) for the best pancakes in Los Angeles, Du-Par’s on Third and Fairfax is always on the list. This morning,we finally went over to the Farmer’s Market to try them out.
This was a time where the experience of a dish lived up to the hype. The Cliff Notes version of my review is – yummy!
I ordered the short stack blue plate special. Which, was three large buttermilk pancakes and two slices of crispy bacon.
Until today, I had never seen pancakes served with a side of melted butter. What a great way to get that super indulgent fluffy pancake breakfast experience. Fluffy may be a bit of an understatement for Du-par’s buttermilk pancakes. Essentially, they were pancake pillows with dimples placed throughout so that the melted butter and maple syrup could soak all the way into the pancake.
They were the first pancakes I have had in a long time where I could actually taste the butter part of the buttermilk in the batter. So far, the Du-par buttermilk pancakes are without a doubt the best pancakes I have had in Los Angeles.
Maybe I should just let my finished plate be my review.
I’ve put together a short video of our visit to Du-par’s to show you just how fluffy those pancakes were this morning.
