Where to go for pancakes in London
Where to eat the best and most adventurous pancakes from around the world in London
Hoppers – pancakes made from fermented rice and coconut milk batter that are popular in southern India and Sri Lanka – have proven such a hit in Soho that they now have a Marylebone restaurant as well. Madhur Jaffrey describes hoppers as the love child of a crêpe and a crumpet, which pretty much sums up why they are so appealing. The bowl-shaped pancakes have a crater-like spongy base. They're usually served with an egg broken in when they are cooking which gives them a lovely filigree look.
Alongside hoppers, and dosas, order mutton rolls, shrimp chips and karries, besides interesting cocktails inspired by Sri Lankan herbs.
There's far more room and a more relaxed yet smarter feel to Marylebone Hoppers than their Soho, Frith Street address.
