Mark Warren takes a look at the best places to get your pancake fix in Sunderland this Shrove Tuesday…
LOVE LILY TEAROOM, ROKER
Love Lily Tearoom is renowned for it fluffy buttermilk pancakes, which come with a variety of toppings, including fresh strawberries and homemade cereal, crispy bacon and maple syrup and Lotus Biscoff and cream. Vegan options are also available!
THE SALT HOUSE KITCHEN, SEABURN
If you like classic flavours, The Salt House Kitchen in Seaburn is the place to be. Go for crispy bacon and maple syrup, or say yes to fruit compote. A total steal at just £5.95 – and suitable for vegans, too! And if the sun’s shining, you can enjoy them outside while taking in the seaside views!
THE PANCAKE KITCHEN, SEAHAM
This sweet crêperie, near Seaham harbour, will be pulling out all the stops this Shrove Tuesday, with a mix of sweet and savoury pancakes, with toppings ranging from ice cream and Lotus Biscoff, to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
So, no matter how you like your pancakes, you’re bound to find something you’ll love here! Gluten-free pancakes are also available on request, meaning everyone can get stuck in!
THE LAMP ROOM, SEAHAM
In the mood for early morning pancakes? Then head to The Lamp Room. The relaxed coffee lounge and bistro on North Terrace, Seaham, will be serving up homemade American-style pancakes with fresh fruit and maple syrup as part of its breakfast menu.
ASIANA FUSION RESTAURANT, PANNS BANK
Those in the mood for something a little bit different this Shrove Tuesday should head to Asiana Fusion for spectacular savoury stacks. The Chinese restaurant will be dishing up their renowned crispy duck pancakes with salad and hoi sin sauce and we think they’re the perfect alternative to the traditional sweet pancakes we’ve adopted from our American friends across the pond!
