Pancakes always bring up thoughts of my childhood and feelings of comfort while I tuck into those fluffy cakes with just the right amount of butter and maple syrup. Lucky for us, Singapore has seen a renaissance of speciality pancake houses that are redefining the way we take our pancakes. Here is our list of the top five must go places to get your pancake fix.
A hotplate, batter and lots of extras – and you get Nook, the first D.I.Y pancake house in Singapore. Here the pancake experience is taken to new heights. You get to make, flip and create artisan pancakes! And did we mention, they’re really yummy too! We recommend going for the two batter set, as this comes with two flavoured batters (pick dark chocolate and buttermilk, they’re our favourites!) as well as three toppings of your choice.
Nook is located at Bukit Timah, 21 Lorong Kilat,#01-03.
The name says it all, strictly pancakes is a joint where you can get pancakes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even supper, it opens till 12 am on Friday and Saturdays. With sweet and savoury pancakes on offer, there is a pancake to suit every taste.
