If you want a tortilla then go to Mexico, want a Chataamani, best you book yourself a ticket and (a Sherpa) for Nepal and if you’re in search of a Crêpe then best you go to France. However, if you want to enjoy a real pancake, you don’t have to go any further than Hillcrest, where you can get a savoury pancake for R22.50 at The View Pancake Café.
The savoury pancakes at The View Pancake Café are spectacular, but so is the breath taking view of the valley, as the name implies. Choose from a selection of savoury pancakes that stretches as far as the 1000 hills themselves. Sit inside or outside while enjoying your savoury pancake and look out onto the rolling hills stretched out before you.
Flavours such as curry, bobotie and chicken will fill your taste buds and every mouthful will leave you wanting more and more. Even if you aren’t bowled over by the view, you’ll certainly be blown away by the taste.
Pancake fact: In the stone ages, pancakes were actually used to wipe the rock paint off brushes. Many wall paintings can be found in caves all over Madagascar depicting this paint brush cleaning ritual. One day a caveman got hungry while painting and took a bite out of the pancake. From that day forth the pancake played a dual role in many cavemen communities.
