Paddington House of Pancakes

Upon looking at the business name of Paddington House of Pancakes (PHOP), it reminds me of the cute Paddington bear and even remind me of a tube station name Paddington in London. Good guess and they name after Paddington as they deemed to have found one of the best pancakes recipes in Paddington, London.

Besides having McDonalds Pancakes locally and having visited Pancakes on the Rock in Sydney, I would say I haven't heard of other places famous for their pancakes.

Commited to serve quality, hearty, rich and wholesome pancakes meal, we decided to try their pancakes for teatime and every order takes about 20 min as it was cooked based by order. Thus a little patience is needed as time is required for the pancakes to be flipped. So Pancakes lovers, in PHOP you get to enjoy a good variety and authentic pancakes around the world too.

Menu
Healthy yogurt smoothies with Lychee, honeydew melon & kiwi Fusion was ordered. Even though there were a number of mix fruits, the taste was somehow covered up by the yogurt. However, it was soothing to the throat on such a hot day.

The short stack consists of 3 pancakes and we opted for the peaches and Hawaiian coconut with cinnamon and ice creams. Presentation was quite captivating with the stack of pancakes surrounded by coconut flakes, nuts and cinnamon powder, resembling a stranded island in the middle of no where. Maple syrup was separated and you can add them on the pancakes to suit your taste bud.

While I'm expecting some fluffy pancakes on the plate, PHOP was far off from what I wanted. Pancakes were about palm size but quite heavy dough like, not like the even texture we got from our friendly fast food restaurant, McDonald's. In fact, the texture was similar to the Chinese kind of "Mi Jiak Kueh" (Chinese Snacks), doughy and chewy, not my kind of style. Vanilla ice cream that topped the pancakes were creamy and melted quickly soon it felt the heat from the pancakes.

With all their sundaes uniquely served with dollar pancakes, its hard to to give them a try. If you are wondering what are dollar pancakes, they are actually pancakes with a size of your dollar coin. Taste reminded me of raspberry vanilla ice cream added with biscuit crumbs, one of my childhood ice cream flavours.

 Overall it was a good experience in PHOP with its availablity of Pancakes.
