Where to find the best pancakes: London, 2022
Hankering for dutch babies, hoppers or okonomiyaki? Here's our list of the best places in London for the most interesting pancakes from around the world.
The epitome of Scandi style with an amazing modern chandelier, Where The Pancakes Are serves up truly adventurous, creative and consciously healthy pancakes. Their ingredients are all organic and top-end including all important grade-A Quebec maple syrup.
Among the savoury buttermilk pancakes, the Welsh rarebit stands out, made with cheese, ale, vinegar crispy onions and a fried egg. There's a vegan recipe, too, using organic rice and buckwheat flour, soya milk and chickpea water.
Try too the Dutch Baby pancakes, actually nothing to do with Holland but a German American invention – rather more Yorkshire pudding, almost soufflé like. The savoury three-cheese, hazelnuts and rosemary version is just as superb as the sweet edition with apple, berries, almonds and house cream.
To drink, there are cold-pressed juices, Basque and Breton ciders besides wine.
