This morning I met up with my buddy Rafi for some breakfast from the fantastic Shopsins General Store in the Lower Eastside. Rafi had the mac n' cheese pancakes, which I've written about before, and was very tempted to order again.
Instead I got the "Slutty Cakes," which are pancakes made with pistachios, peanut butter and pumpkin. I have no idea why they are called that, but I did feel a bit dirty after eating them. The peanut butter is the dominant flavor, with the crunch of the pistachios as an afternote and just a hint of pumpkin. Super delicious.
My only complaint: their coffee is consistently undrinkable. I wish Kenny would let people bring in their own if he's going to serve such swill.
Next visit: the red velvet pancakes!
