Dinner at the Pancake Parlour @ Thursday, May 16, 2013

Last Thursday we had dinner at the Pancake Parlour, Andy & I. 

He ordered the tabriz, which Emily loves and Jas points out it's mainly pasta sauce. 

I got the fish & (chips) salad with a pancake, "Barramundi & Salad". I actually like the salad, minus the celery, which is strange as normally I don't like greens and won't eat them unless with company. Though I really didn't like beans. 

Raspberry soda, love this drink, though I rarely have it.
I seem to scare people more than usual after a glass or two. :P 

For dessert he had the short stack with vanilla ice cream, their signature dish.

While I tried something new, the lamington. I was going to get the apple dessert, but not if it was canned apples. The lamington was very nice, two small cold pancakes, sandwiching unsweetened cream, drizzled with a sweet red jam, covered in chocolate and sprinkled with coconut. It was very nice, and I'd recommend it, though I could barely finish it, even thought it was small (I have a small apatite). If you get this in the full size it's better to share. 

Service was good/decent, the girl waiting at our booth was friendly, though she forgot the drinks till I mentioned them after the main. The food was slow to arrive despite not being very busy. But the manager was very friendly. :)

I also love their raspberry soft drink.

I am very familiar with that particular Pancake Parlour, I worked there in high school as a dishwasher. We used to get free pancakes during each shift. Good memories.

By the way, they don't used canned apples, at least they didn't back in 2004-2005.

Krissy - I've wanted to try the tabriz, though as it has pork in it I can't eat it. Jas says I'm not missing out on anything though. :P

Cabaret - It's kirk's isn't it? Free food just like subway and kfc :P doesn't it put you off eating it for life though? I'll ask about the apples next time, if they're fresh I'll order that dish. Perhaps they just taste canned?

It's a syrup/soda water combination. At least it was. I am sure many things have changed since I worked there.

I've been eating at Pancake Parlour for years but I realised that I've only ordered their short stack's and cottage fries. I think it's time to try something new... that lamington looks really good!

We always find their cottage fries very oily :( IMO Grill'd does the best chips. ;)
