Founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953, the Original Pancake House’s latest franchise has opened in Fukuoka. The company, which set itself apart by offering German-style oven-baked pancakes, has since grown to encompass 129 stores in the U.S. and several overseas. The signature Dutch baby is an oven-baked pancake served with whipped butter, lemon and powdered sugar (your server adds these toppings at the table). You can also enjoy American favorites like the apple and cinnamon-packed apple pancake and Three Little Pigs in Blankets—three sausages individually wrapped in fluffy pancakes.
