After browsing Yelp looking for breakfast places on the LES I became intrigued with Shopsin's. A legendary New Yawker with many supporters and detractors, I was hooked by the extensive menu and the "rules" of dining at Kenny's place. I minded my manners waiting in line and smartly avoided questioning why I could not sit at the open seat at the counter. After about 1/2 hour wait i was seated and ordered a banana/strawberry Smoothie and the Iran "Slutty cakes". About another 30 minutes later I dug into my food and thoroughly enjoyed the pistachio, banana pancakes and the beverage. My dining companions around me ordered other amusingly named breakfasts which looked good and were heaped onto the plates. I will definitely check this place out again but would try to get there earlier to avoid some of the waiting on line. The wait time for the food cannot be avoided because the kitchen (and likely Kenny) can only accomodate one order at a time. Still the food was really good and I got through the meal without being cursed at or thrown out. For a true breakfast/lunch adventure I would highly recommend checking it out.
