My Old Dutch might not feel like a proper Dutch pancake house, but bloody hell, these pancakes are huge. That might apply to the savoury varieties, it was an intense experience. I felt like I was at one of those eating contests. Sweet pancakes might […]
When I’ve ordered flambé crepes, I expect some flames dammit. Unfortunately my mid-afternoon experience at Mamie’s was that one ended up in flames. I’m a grand fan of the humble galette/ crepe (see Roule Galette), and was excited to check out the venue after seeing […]
Decent crepe action can be found at the Creme De La Crepe in Covent Garden. I had an afternoon discovering science and planet Earth so something flat sounded like a proper fix for a pre-dinner tummy rumble. I ordered the Rumble in the Crumble (£5.25) which is a crepe filled with apple compote, crumble, cinnamon and cream.

The plating is all a bit fast foody, with plastic cutlery and boxes ready to go. The filling was a nice little mix, the sweetness of the apple coupling well with the spice of the cinnamon and crunch of the ginger biscuit. The substitution did leave the dish on the sugary side, but it’s a small portion and happily shared.
