I’m kind of a major sucker for pancakes. When someone tells me about the best pancakes they’ve ever had, I’ve gotta try them. So when my sister-in-law Emily and several of our friends here in DC said we needed to try the Blueberry Buckwheat pancakes (called Blue Bucks) at Eastern Market, I decided to drag go with Aaron to try them out!
They were pretty tasty, I’ll give them that. Softly sweet with gorgeous plump blueberries. But they sell the maple syrup separately, and since Aaron and I refuse to eat pancakes with the fake stuff anymore (#neveragain), it was a bit overhyped and overpriced for me. Still tasty, don’t get me wrong, but when you make homemade pancakes with pure maple syrup at home on a regular basis, it’s just not as life changing, I suppose. You can officially label me a pancake snob. It’s cool; I can handle it.
