I love pancakes. Especially thick not-too-sweet ones doused in maple syrup. Not the maple-flavoured syrups but the real deal. Ah, bliss. While homemade pancakes are all good, I do like it when someone makes me a batch. Who doesn't eh?
Strictly Pancakes is not a place I would call a restaurant. It's a refurbished old shop house near Dhoby Ghat, Singapore. The menu is almost exclusively pancakes.
We decided to go with savory pancakes since I have never tried them at home and these sounded delicious. We ordered and waited around 15 mins for this plate of thick, spongy, warm leek, potato and cheese pancakes with sauteed mushrooms on the side, called Potatoes Leeking Cheese. Heh.
Each order comes with a portion of good quality maple syrup and a flavoured butter of your choice. We chose the herb and garlic butter. One grouse I have though is that this is all the maple syrup you get and if you want more, you get the same quantity but for an extra dollar. Since TH doesn't like maple syrup, I got the entire thing but if you want to share, this is really not enough.
Oh, and we got some hazelnut chocolate milkshake to share as well. It was thick and quite delicious. Almost like drinking diluted liquid Nutella... which is probably what it was anyway!
TH and I went in the evening and it was almost empty, very laid back and we shared our plate of pancake which was perfect portion-wise.
