Flippin’ heck, it’s Pancake Day on 12th Feb

We love pancakes, just plain and simple with a good dousing of lemon juice (fresh, none of your Jif rubbish) and a dusting of caster sugar. If they must be gussied up, we’ll take ours with a drizzle of alcohol thank you very much. Le Metro in Knightsbridge and Shutterbug in Shoreditch must have read our minds as the two eateries will be serving up pancakes with a kick for Shrove Tuesday on 12th February…

At Le Metro our beloved classic combo will get a new lease of life with a shot of tequila, while those who live by  the more is more rule can have theirs served with warm chocolate, a dollop of clotted cream and a shot of Baileys – £7.50 with alcohol, £4.50 without. A bargain and definitely a good blow-out before the giving-up-everything-for-Lent gets underway…

And for pancakes, races, cocktails and dancing (not all at the same time but whatever rocks your boat), check out Shutterbug, the brand new experimental crepe and cocktail speakeasy in Shoreditch – good times guaranteed.
