Toot toot! Pancake day is on its way and when it comes to crepes and pancakes in London, I am proud to say that I am extremely well informed… it comes from years of experience and dedicated research… which is very hard work and I’m sure you all feel very sorry for me.
This is a list of my favourite pancake haunts in London, which includes the crepe stand in Hampstead, where I first discovered, aged 14, the joy of nutella with banana… and sitting on a bench to eat it, in the rain, with a bestie.
Although my absolute favourite place of all is at home in the kitchen, with family and friends, lemon and sugar and THAT pan that always sticks… (I do also have a memory of a failed flip and a pancake getting stuck to the kitchen ceiling… but that’s a whole other story.)
Happy Pancake Day y’all.
