Readers celebrate joys of potato pancakes

One potato, two potatoes, three potatoes, four …

Personally, I love potato pancakes. I know I’m not alone because Cleone Booterbaugh emailed in search of local restaurants that serve them. And there are a lot of other aficionados out there, it seems, because her fellow Taste of the Town readers suggested several of them.

Roberta Shulman emailed that they’re served at The Bagel Cafe at 301 N. Buffalo Drive and on the Thursday deli-night buffet at the Rampart Casino at 221 N. Rampart Drive. Sharon Gottlieb, who recommended The Bagel Cafe, also suggested The Original Pancake House at 4170 S. Fort Apache Road. Kurt Ladensack recommended the “excellent” version served at the Bavarian Castle at 10890 S. Eastern Ave. in Henderson. Annemarie Kubicek also suggested the Bavarian Castle, as well as Cafe Berlin at 4850 W. Sunset Road.

Danny Becker said they’re served at Blueberry Hill Family Restaurant, which has three locations in the valley. Ann Brown emailed that they’re available at the Del Mar Deli at the South Point at 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South. And Carol McGilton, Phyllis Collins, Caron Borgeson and Marilyn Roth recommended Weiss Deli at 2744 N. Green Valley Parkway in Henderson, where Borgeson said they’re “one of the best potato pancakes I have had in a long time” and Roth noted that they also can be purchased to go at the deli counter. …

For Mary Ann Teixeira, Maria Lamorte emailed that large lupini beans can be found at the International Marketplace at 5000 S. Decatur Blvd. and at Max Market at 8450 W. Sahara Ave. …

More on stuffed peppers: Carole McGilton emailed that they’re served at Roma Deli at 5755 Spring Mountain Road and Roma Deli II at 8524 W. Sahara Ave. …

More on raspberry vinegar: Ruth Jagodzinski recommended the “excellent” Mantova Organic Raspberry Vinegar that she finds at Amazon.com.

Judy Bowen is looking for dried Spanish chorizo sausages, preferably in Henderson. “I always used them in Florida, but except for some larger and more expensive ones I’ve seen at Whole Foods, have been unable to find them,” she said. …

And Steve Michaelson is looking for dark rye flour that is not produced by Bob’s Red Mill, explaining, “Bob’s recently acknowledged that their last batch of dark rye flour was inadvertently mixed with clover, which gives the flour a distinct cinnamon scent and flavor. All bags of Bob’s dark rye flour I purchased recently (locally and from Amazon) had this problem. Cinnamon flavor does not go well with sourdough bread! So, is there a non-Bob’s rye flour anywhere in Las Vegas?” (Michaelson added that Winco’s bulk rye flour also is from Bob’s Red Mill.)
