Pancakes On The Rocks

9 07 2010

My friend cum neighbour E ate at Pancakes On The Rocks recently and raved to me about how awesome it was. Awarded Gold for Best Casual/Family Dining Restaurant for 6 years running, I was very excited to try it out. The branch at Darling Harbour which I visited had a perpetual queue and fyi doesn’t accept reservations.

I just had to try the Bananarama, after all it’s named after one of my favourite retro bands. I really liked this. Caramel, Maple Syrup, Vanilla Ice Cream & Bananas over Buttermilk Pancakes, a classic combination that will never go out of style.

For chocoholics, there’s the Devil’s Delight. Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Ice Cream and Chocolate Sauce. Personally, I found it too cloying but K loved it and polished it off effortlessly.

Crepes are also available here. We had a go at their Mushroom Chicken Crepe but thought nothing much of it. R and T felt that the crepes were just flattened pancakes and the crepes from Out Of The Pan @ Raffles City tasted better.

Pre-mix and Maple Syrup are sold at the shop too so I got a box of Pancake pre-mix for E!

On a side note, my friends who are currently studying in Sydney gave me a heads up that the main branch at The Rocks serves slightly better pancakes than this branch and operates 24/7.

Bon Appetit!
