My personal view is that the pancakes most commonly found in the US are only edible with a few sardines on top (beneath the maple syrple).

The sild oil makes the whole glomp slide down smoothly, and the dead fish add a bit of flavor that's remarkably pleasing to the palate.

I will confess that I know of only two 'mercans who ever have subscribed to this practice, and the other guy's deceased the past decade or so; but I'll stick to it as my personal favorite.
