Where the Pancakes are – Review

The latest location for one of London’s best-kept secrets has now opened in Battersea Power Stations refurb. Nuzzled across from the main entrance, you see the blazing ‘Where The Pancakes Are’ neon sign, showcasing a sleek, dutch-inspired pancake house that does more than you’d expect.

These people pray to the maple syrup, but they know delicious comes in all shapes, colours and sizes. The menu reflects this. Expect to salivate over Korean miso slaws, homemade pickles, and almond-apricot granola. The 12-ingredient strong batter includes buttermilk and can be slow to cook, although we didn’t wait long, and the place was heaving.

The menu is actually chock full of new ideas and old favourites. We tried the pulled pork pancakes (superb) and the ‘Australian’; one polenta corn fritter, smashed avocado, oat creme fraiche, rocket salad, Belazu’s preserved lemon and olive oil. We also scarfed down the banana marshmallow pancake option, which included hazelnut-cocoa-nib praline and deliciously unusual basil marshmallows. Fret not; if you’d have enough pancakes (we don’t know if that’s possible), there are other dessert options too.

One thing we hadn’t had before was a ‘Dutch baby’. The owner tells us that these were used by her friends to lure lovers into staying longer after a night of passion. Don’t worry; we asked for the recipe for you… The drinks have been equally thought out, from great cocktail pairings to a wide variety of non-alcoholic options. The homemade iced tea was one of the best we’d had.

As the menu says, ‘Batter Matters’. We couldn’t agree more. Make a reservation today; you don’t need to be hungover for these pancakes. Can’t make it to one of the three locations? Fear not. More are on the way. The team also prepares home boxes that you can buy online for delivery. So you can make your own!
