    I'm starving too, could do with a stack of hot syrup covered pancakes. Or maybe some lemon and sugar covered with a cup of tea..

    Lemon & sugar FTW or pecan syrup. Either way I don't have time to go to IHOP but I'll live vicariously through those who do.

    THIS

    There's at least one or two other places around where I live that have much better pancakes and don't make me feel like I need a shower afterward :p

    reminds me of former babysitter (I went to her house before school) who made "New Zealand" pancakes

    they were very flat, she put lemon juice and sugar on them, then rolled them up

    yum!!

    I've never liked pancakes...
    The thick American style ones are vile and sit in my stomach for hours after eating. The pancakes they have over here in the UK are thin, more like crepes, and much more digestible. I still don't care for them, though.

    i really would refuse to eat in this establishment because of the people that normally eat there and the eating conditions.

    I tend to not like eating in places where you have no privacy, and you are like seated right up on complete strangers who are loud and disgusting.

    I dont consider myself privileged or anything, I just prefer eating in private homes or private dining rooms.

    I never eat fast food, nor the Chilis of the world for that exact reason.

    Awesome, turn this into a PRSI thread so you can throw your tantrum about eating in public. In my opinion most of the way you respond to things shows that you do find yourself privileged but you have a right to your opinion, of course.

    No one says you have to eat pancakes, I for one would love some if I had time to leave work right now. :D

    Lemon+sugar on thin pancakes, where the edges crisp up. That would be lovely right about now.

    Weird comment. You seem to be something of a misanthropist (or a teenager). "The people that normally eat there"? Who are "those people" and what makes you so much better?

    Eating in public is fun! Loud and disgusting are just one of the many combinations of people you find at restaurants. Go there to view the spectacular variety of human types if you must be the anthropologist!

    I once went to an IHOP up north. You go in any IHOP on a saturday morning and look around. That is what I mean by "those people". Each restaurant is the same, no matter. Granted I've been to a diner 2 times in 7 years. Not a big "go out to eat breakfast" person.


    I dont see any fun in watching the spectacular variety of human types (while eating food). Food is the key here. If anything, you can get plenty of human specimen observation in any club in Miami.

    You really still haven't explained what "those people" are. Do you mean people with mouths, perfect for eating pancakes? Families? Hung over teenagers? Grandparents with their grandkids?

    Your reason for posting seems to be to create controversy out of a perfectly innocent topic....

    You might have wanted to quote the first post in the thread, since the whole thing's about an old English tradition. Tradition, of course, being something the USA might just develop in a few more hundred years! :D
