It went down on the 26th of September….the long-awaited rematch between Wade Pack and the Stepping Stone Cafe’s world famous Mancakes. Wade Vs Mancakes, Round 2.
Wade had his game face on that day, ready to conquer the extra large pancakes, his eye on the prize of a Polaroid of himself on their Wall of Fame.
A few moths ago, Pack stepped into the NW Portland cafe with breakfast on his mind, not a challenge. He remembered seeing Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s “Man Vs Food” fame talking about these amazing creations and, at that point, decided to step up to the plate, quite literally. Unfortunately, the fluffy cakes defeated him that day.
The 26th was the rematch. View Part 1 and 2 of the video below to see what happens:
It’s official. Wade Pack of Vancouver, WA has, once again, thrown down the gauntlet and taken the re-match with Stepping Stone Cafe’s 13″ Mancakes.
Brought to the forefront of attention by Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s “Man vs Food” show, the Portland restaurant has been producing and reproducing these specialty pancakes, hand over fist. Everyone knows about them now and that is what prompted Wade to take the challenge in the first place. FYI, Adam never attempted the challenge…he excused himself, claiming a time constraint. Yeah, right, Adam! ;(
Wade knew there was an empty hole in his life and that a victory over the Mancakes was the only way to fill it.
As you may or may not know, his first attempt was a failure…the Mancakes beat him to a bloody pulp. Wade has assured me that things WILL be much different this time. His strategy is top secret, so I need to respect that.
The time and date for “Wade vs Mancakes – Round 2″ has yet to be determined, but, rest assured, it is going to happen. I’m headed over to Wade’s private gym today to talk with him about his re-match with the Mancakes. I have a load of questions for him and I’ll have that for you soon, as well as the date and time, if you care to attend this Portland event.
Will this time around turn out to be a Mike Tyson knock-out blow for Wade or will the sheer intimidation factor of this hill he must climb eat him alive? Regardless of the outcome, this will surely be the match of the century. Can you tell we’re having a lot of fun with this?
In the meantime, here is Wade Pack’s first go at the awesome Mancakes and a promo for the next. Enjoy and we’ll talk soon.
I while back, Adam Richman from the Travel Channel’s “Man Vs Food”, hit up Portland and the Stepping Stone Cafe.
If you’re not familiar with the place, they have some really great food, but aside from that, are known around the country for their famous 13″ Mancakes. The typical stack of three is absolutely huge, to the point of hanging over the edges of the large plate they transport them to your table on.
Anyway, my friend, Wade Pack, and I took a trip over to the Stepping Stone Cafe at 2390 NW Quimby Street in Portland to see what all the fuss was about for ourselves.
I chose their freshly-made Banana Nut French Toast (it was very good!) and Wade, being the many-man he is, decided to go for the challenge. As daunting as the Wall of Fame behind him was, he sucked it up and ordered the full stack of 13″ Mancakes.
Here is the results (BTW, he’s going for Round 2 soon!):
