BOBBLE TIKI: GRITTYSHOOT â€" LABOR DAY WEEKEND IN TACOMA >>>

Spending Labor Day weekend enjoying the sights, sounds, tastes and smells from our own backyard:

Masa pancakes Masa
2811 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, 253.254.0560

Breakfast hours: Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Breakfast-with-Bobble-Tiki There's almost nothing in the world Bobble Tiki loves as much as a plate of pancakes. Bobble Tiki's wife, Silver Oak wine, sashimi, listening to Led Zepp at deep, ear-massaging levels â€" they all edge out pancakes, but not by much. Pancakes are definitely in his top five.

And why not? A tall stack of flapjacks is basically an American excuse to eat cake for breakfast. As a tiny tiki, Bobble Tiki would get a furtive thrill whenever his folks took him to the diner in the morning and told him to order whatever Bobble Tiki wanted. Bobble Tiki ask for pancakes, of course â€" beautiful, warm, perfectly round pancakes, slathered in butter and drizzled with warm syrup from a sticky jug â€" and eat them quickly, shoveling them down like Bobble Tiki was getting away with something.

This morning Bobble Tiki shoveled a plate of Masa pancakes â€" very quick.

Masa pacakes â€" two large cakes with two eggs to order, 12 very thin, fried potatoes and choice of sausage or bacon â€" arrive light and fluffy, yet dense, concentrically browned on the flat grill and served with butter balls and strawberries â€" each in their own tiny cup â€" are subtly sweet, delicately starchy. They taste like you imagine pancakes would taste when you see perfect pictures in magazines, on menus, how you might remember pancakes tasting when you were a tiny tiki: a pure indulgence, dessert made into a meal.

As you read earlier on Spew, Masa now serves breakfast on the weekends. Click here for all the details.

Bobble Tiki invaded the next table to snap a few shots of other Masa breakfast items.
