The Dish: The year is 1899 and Victor Manca relocates his family to Seattle with the desire start a restaurant. Manca’s Café goes on to be a Seattle institution and gives birth to the Dutch Baby (Victor even held a trademark for it). What is a Dutch Baby, you ask? A pancake with the fluffiness of a soufflé sometimes topped with syrup and fruits, this baby is said to be inspired by the German Apfelpfannkuchen. Fast forward to present day and you’ll find The Tilikum Café continues to honor this Seattle food icon.
