How do you like your pancakes?
Are you one of those people who can’t wait for Pancake Day every year? Well, your day has finally come as it officially falls on Tuesday February 25.
Whether you like yours light, fluffy and American-style; thin and crispy, loaded with Nutella or sprinkled with lemon and sugar, here’s where you can get your fix of the tasty treat in restaurants around Dubai.
Bread Street Kitchen
It’s a pancake and cocktail affair at Bread Street Kitchen on Shrove Tuesday. Choose from lemon and sugar to lemon sorbet or red velvet with seasonal berries and vanilla cream or even chocolate pancakes with chocolate ice cream, brownie and sauce for Dhs50 each. Then, adults can choose from signature cocktails like an espresso martini for an additional Dhs65.
