Just look at these pancakes! This is not a macro shot. These pancakes at Sibling Rival in Los Angeles really are that gigantic, each one nearly two inches tall. I thought they would be super fluffy, but they turned out to be quite dense — somewhere on a scale between regular pancakes and pound cake. Heavy, yes, but also delicious. That syrup is a thick, gooey hazelnut maple brown butter. One pancake is enough for two people to share, but two pancakes makes a better photo. Ha! Couldn’t resist.
The buckwheat waffles are great, too. And the coffee is strong AF. Sibling Rival is the new all-day diner inside The Hoxton in downtown L.A.
