There’s no American breakfast food here, but this place makes the best onion pancakes we’ve had in San Francisco. They’re big, puffy, and flaky and stand up perfectly to the things they fill them with, like beef with Hoisin sauce. This place also makes super chewy hand-pulled noodles in the back that you can get stir-fried with things like lamb or served in soup. House of Pancakes is small and there’s most likely going to be a wait, but it’s always well worth it.
