Here’s a selection of five of the best places where you can have your fill of pancakes in Mumbai.
If you’re not one with a sweet tooth, or have stacked one to many with maple syrup, chocolate, ice creams et al, here’s an alternative — because there shouldn’t ever be a reason to say no to pancakes. The savoury seafood pancake at Bastian, the Korean Seafood Pancake, is stuffed with prawns and calamari, and is also gluten-free, making it a must-try for anyone who’s gluten intolerant and a seafood lover.
Where: Kamal Building, B/1, New, Linking Rd, Bandra West
Timings: 12:00 pm-3:00 pm and 7:00 pm-12:00 am
When one needs their traditional fix, Jamjar is where one heads. Three pancakes, layered with Nutella, bananas, sugar, and cinnamon — it’s the sweet stack that makes for a great breakfast, meal, or dessert, whichever one pleases to make it, just as easily.
Where: 7A & 7B, JP Road, Aram Nagar II, Opp. Palm Beach Apartment, Versova, Andheri West
Timings: 9:00 am to 1:00:00 am
Salt Water Café
Yet another savoury option, Salt Water Café has the ideal breakfast pancakes when one’s not looking for something too sweet. Go for their Bacon Pancakes, fluffy as can be, with strips on the inside and bacon jam on the outside — could one ask for a better brekkie?
Where: Annel Church, Rose Minar, 87, Chapel Rd, Reclamation, Bandra West
Timings: 9:00 am to 1:00 am
Want to keep it healthy? Sequel solves that dilemma. Opt for their Almond Coconut Pancakes, which keeps it wholesome and nutritious, but not without excellent taste. Think stacks made with oatmeal, topped with vanilla-infused Kashmiri honey, chia seeds, raspberries, pumpkin seeds, and all-natural berry and chia compote. Measured indulgence at it best.
Where: Ground Floor, Upadrastha House, Dr. VB Gandhi Marg, Kala Ghoda, Fort
Timings: 8:00 am to 10:30 pm
Smoke House Deli
A lighter version, the buttermilk pancakes at Smoke House Deli, are just as fluffy as regular pancakes. However, the rest of the suggestion is all about indulgence. Try their pancake stack with almonds, hazelnuts, and chocolate chips for a sweet, sweet pancake indulgence.
