Today when a friend at work suggested that we should celebrate Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) by having some pancakes/Crepes for lunch I struggled for two seconds with the decision.
As someone who loves food and especially pancakes I had already mentally planned out my whole evening of pancake celebrating (lemon and sugar, Nutella, strawberries and whipped cream, banana, blueberries and maple syrup).
Ok you get the gist, we could be here a long time otherwise. So the prospect of having them for lunch and dinner was almost too exciting.
We decided to head to Shutterbug Bar and Creperie in Shoreditch which does the best selection of traditional sweet and experimental savoury French pancakes.
If visiting in the evening and not during working hours they do brilliant cocktails too.
Their pancakes are so good this weekend their Red velvet pancake with chocolate and strawberries (£5) appeared on Channel 4 Sunday Brunch.
As I was having sweet pancakes for dinner I opted for their pulled pork with cheese and pickles (£8) which was absolutely delicious. There was lots of BBQ pork with oozing soft melted cheese.
To be honest there was loads on the menu that I would happily have eaten if given the chance.
Not sure what you are having on your pancakes tonight and fancy getting some inspiration have a look here.
Well what ever combination you choose have fun, I am off now to make my sweet offerings, well it is Pancake Day after all.
