I have just taken time out of my day to have a yummy pancake and cocktail at The Botanist.
True, my day was so busy that I missed lunch but I couldn’t resist the crêpe suzette because I was curious to try it with the All Fur Coat And No Ricard martini on the cocktail menu.
They went together perfectly because of their tangy edge. Delish!
The martini involves pampero blanco rum, velvet falernum, ricard, rhubarb bitters and fresh lime juice.
Just as I was about to get up and leave, I was asked if I wanted another pancake. So I said, why not? And picked the savoury pancake: poppy seed crêpe, foie gras, wild mushrooms and cauliflower purée.
It is SO good! And I wholeheartedly recommend having it with a glass of bubbles. Admittedly I didn’t but I do have to head back to work after this and I wish I did!
So if you’re heading here tonight, it’s easy to say you’ll be spoilt for choice. Enjoy!
