Creme de la Crepe
Pancake Day is finally here, otherwise known as Shrove Tuesday. Way back in history the idea was to give up ingredients such as eggs, milk and butter for lent.
Now i fully love the idea of using up ingredients and gorging on sugary pancakes filled with nutella, peanut butter, syrup or just plain old lemon - it's enough to send me detoxing for at least a couple of days after! (but perhaps not the entire lent period)
To celebrate this wonderous day, i dragged a friend along to the new Creme de la Crepe in Covent Garden. It's a small haven within Covent Garden market and sells pancakes at barginious prices. With offerings such as Cheeky Monkey (nutella and banana) and banoffee pie on the sweet menu, we headed straight for dessert! We were not let down, my Milkybar kid (white chocolate with fresh strawberries) was amazing and has now surpassed nutella and peanut butter as my favourite pancake flavour.
Creme de la Crepe is definately worth a visit when your next in the area, the staff are super friendly and made evert effort to find us a table, despite the place being packed. I'm already planning what to have on my return!
