It’s been years since I’ve been to Pamela’s, so recently at work when it was brought up to go for lunch I was all about it. We actually made 2 trips recently which gave me more to talk about. The cool thing about Pamela’s in Millvale is that it sits inside the Lincoln Pharmacy which gives it that throwback diner feel. With it being so cold this month I wasn’t about to try a milkshake or anything from the soda fountain, but it will give me something to go back for when it warms up.
My first trip I ordered the P&G Diner Burger which is a 1/2 lb. burger topped with fried jalapeno, onion straws, lettuce, tomato, cheddar, ketchup & mayo on a Kaiser roll. The fried jalapeno and onion straws is what really convinced me to order this. It was ok, the burger had to of been a frozen patty because it looked and tasted that way. I enjoyed the shoe string french fries with it, too many places give crinkle cut fries anymore. I can’t say I would order this again.
The second trip I decided to try the Lincoln Breakfast which comes with 2 of Pamela’s famous crepe hotcakes, a helping of Lyonnaise Potatoes, eggs and bacon. It is rare for me to eat breakfast for any other meal except for in the morning. I am glad that I ordered this for lunch because I have become an instant fan of the hotcakes! Those crispy edges are what really sold me. They aren’t thick so you can eat a few of them and not hate yourself.
I can easily see why these are President Obama’s favorite pancakes! I don’t live too far from the Sq Hill location (and their new “Nu Modern Jewish Bistro” which I have to visit ASAP) so I have a feeling I will be visiting them in the not too far off future.
