Walp's Wednesday~Potato Pancakes
Walp's PA Dutch Restaurant sat on the corner of Union Boulevard and Airport Road in Allentown from 1936, until November 29, 1998. To those who frequented or just stopped by on their route to other places they were famous for their delicious PA Dutch cuisine. We have three more Wednesdays of recipes on their way, so check back next week for a mouth watering addition to any Christmas Buffet; Seafood Stuffed Pasta Shells.
