Pancake Porn: Where The Pancakes Are

Monday, 16 February 2015


   
Huzzah folks! The fourth best day of the year is upon us.
(The first three are obviously my birthday, Christmas and Friday's.)
I don't know about you, but arm me with a frying pan and some hot oil and it usually means someone's going to end up with an effortful time trying to explain an eccentrically shaped burn.
Shrove Tuesday is not the day for desultory trips to A&E, so this year I'm leaving it to Patricia because she knows a damn thing or two about buckwheat.
In 2015, I feel knowing what to do with buckwheat is of fashionable importance.
Nice job, Patricia.

Beth and I made our way over to Where The Pancakes Are at The Proud Archivist, which you'd be right in thinking is where there actually are, some pancakes. 
There's also a very nice canal if you fancy a post-pancake-stroll.
Nestled away outside in a quaint MDF structure, Patricia and her team are frying buttermilk and buckwheat and a good measure of duck eggs.
Already, this is going to be out of my usual 'Orrr, I'll 'av a bit of sugar and lemon on mine please.' 

Indecisive at the best of times, it'd be foolish for you to think I was ready to settle for one stack.
We ordered, in a nutshell, three quarters of the menu.
Kumquats and tangerine cointreau cream, cinnamon pineapples with lime syrup, thyme slow roast tomatoes with avocado and preserved lemons, a bit of cumin, scallions, green chilli and lime and corriander butter- you name it, it was in my mouth.
And also down my jumper. 


If you're stuck for somewhere to get battered (sorry!) I cannot recommend this little spot enough.
Ridiculously exquisite. 
I mean, it's a pancake, it's not supposed to taste that good, but they do.
Also worth mentioning that they're dairy free, incase that pleases you as much as it does lacto-sceptic me.
Patricia will be frying your way to heaven until the 22nd of February and then (let's all hold hands and pray) she will hopefully be opening a permanent paradise in the summer.
My fingers, although podgier than when I first entered, are irrefutably crossed.

  12. Oh my god these look amazing! I've never tried a savoury crepe; it's always sounded quite wrong to me, but I think I'll definitely have to give these a go sometime soon! Thanks for recommending :) xx
