Best Thin Pancakes in Los Angeles

Pie n' Burger initially got me hooked on thin pancakes until I tried the 49'er Flap Jacks at Original Pancake House in Anaheim which completely trumped my experience at PNB (which is unfortunate for me as I live in Pasadena).
re: Clare K
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try Campanile.
And I'm also trying to find THE recipe for the 49'er Flap Jacks at OPH. No luck yet, though I have found some flap jack recipes on the net.
Here's the closest I've found:
1/2 C Sourdough culture
1 T Sugar
2 C Flour
1 T Oil
1 C Milk
1 T Baking powder
1/2 T salt
Stir up everything but the syrup & butter. Can cook on greased inverted lid of the oven.

I went to Musso & Frank for lunch and had the flannelcakes. They were good. If thin pancakes are what one wants, I can't imagine one will find thinner than Musso's. They're essentially regular pancakes - not really eggy like a crêpe - but made paper-thin. I've never seen a pancake get that thin; they aren't even flipped over. The batter itself isn't too flavorful, though, which might be the one shortcoming of Musso's flannelcakes. I did enjoy the, well, flannel-like texture, though. They come three to a stack for $6 and measure about nine to ten inches in diameter.
Larkins (LarkinsJoint.com) in Eagle Rock has these pancakes for their Sunday Brunch...they're so good, they piss me off! I crave them, and they haven't had a brunch in several weeks...but..yippee! they will have brunch again a week from Sunday and I'll be all over those yummy little suckers with gusto! Thanks goodness for pancakes and french toast1
