Better late than never! I normally do a pancake post for Shrove Tuesday but it's been flipping (groan) busy. But here is a quick heads up on where to go.
The Creperie www.thecreperiebrighton.com
They launched in 2014 on Shrove Tuesday so no doubt will be celebrating their first birthday as well as being Brighton's only true creperie. There's enough on the menu for a starter, main and dessert all in pancake form.
Sam's of Brighton www.samsofbrighton.co.uk
With their French head chef, it's hardly surprising that Sam's have a full crepe menu on the night which looks fantastic. They have black pudding, onions and fried duck egg or mushrooms and Gruyère cheese to start and the classics as well as caramelised apples and Calvados for sweet. Sam's will also match a small selection of beers and cider on the night, sorry "cidre".
Terre a Terre www.terreaterre.co.uk
Terre a Terre are making a meal out of it. On the menu will be "Okonomiyaki Hiroshima" - filled with togarashi noodles, sauteed cabbage, spring onions served with kewpie mayonnaise.
Plateau and Mange Tout www.plateaubrighton.co.uk/ and www.mangetoutbrighton.co.uk/
There will be savoury pancakes at one of my favourite Brighton spots, Plateau and sweet ones at their sister restaurant Mange Tout. Pancake crawl!
64 Degrees www.64degrees.co.uk
64 Degrees were hardly going to slap a bit of Nutella on a pancake were they? Instead expect bone marrow wraps and a take on a Korean dessert.
The Gingerman Group www.gingermanrestaurants.com
All of the Gingerman pubs will have a crepe specials on the night.
The Coal Shed, Curry Leaf Cafe and Coggings & Co. also have something lined up too.
