Kenmore History

Henry Jang opened his restaurant, “The Hot Cake King,” in 1951. It was a good place to go for pancakes and a strong cup of coffee. The menu featured “all-you-can-eat, dollar-sized” pancakes for 30 cents, according to Jang’s son, Gary. Henry Jang also made what he called a dunker, a doughnut without a hole.
