Pancakes are awesome already, right? Whether you’re a bacon and maple syrup person or yoghurt with berries, you really can’t go wrong. But what if you go somewhere and you’re in need of bacon and syrup and they only do chocolate and strawberries. What happens then?
Well, free up a weekend because, on Saturdays and Sundays, 11:30 am – 3:30 pm, Christopher’s restaurant in Covent Garden does BUILD YOUR OWN PANCAKES.
Christopher’s is a contemporary American restaurant with a sweeping staircase, striking martini bar and beautiful toilets (if you can talk about toilets that way).
They do impressive breakfast and lunch by day, french toast in the afternoon and juicy steaks by night. Not forgetting DIY pancakes!
Check this out…
At the table, you’ll get a tick sheet (^^^), a pencil and choice of fresh bread. Once you’ve decided (and tried not to tick EVERYTHING on the list), hand it to your waiter and wait for your creation to arrive.
Make them as healthy as you want, calorific as you want, expensive as you want, or cheap as you want. It’s all down to you!
Maybe a classic (not boring :p) buttermilk with bacon and syrup…
… or a healthy not so healthy combo of berries, Nutella and vanilla ice-cream…
…and because everyone needs chips for breakfast, highly recommended is a side of truffle parmesan chips fries for the table. SERIOUSLY. GET THEM.
If breakfast can be an experience then this is one of those, and if you’re looking for something a bit different to do then give this a go.
Whether you’re into pancakes or not, their regular menu goes on for days. From light and healthy detox smoothies and grilled grapefruits to rich lobster benedict and brioche chocolate french toast. It’s a GREAT option for any time and anyone.
You could say this a bit of gimmick and well, yes it is. But when a gimmick is this good, who cares right?
