This morning I woke up with a craving for pancakes. Sometimes, once you get an idea for food in your head, you have to satisfy it, or nothing else will taste quite as good, no matter how delicious.
A few minutes on Google later and I discovered LadyIronChef and a post on where to get the best pancakes in Singapore (the rest of this site is awesome as well). A quick read later and I decided we should go to Food for Thought, as it’s round the corner from our temporary apartment, and the menu made me drool!
Food for Thought is on Queen Street, just around the corner from the Singapore Art Museum. It’s set back off the street slightly, and you can either indulge in air-con comfort inside, or opt to do what we did, and sit outside in the sunshine with a gentle waft of a fan to keep you cool. The seating area feels shady and cool and is surrounded by plants. Very relaxing and you can watch the world go by.
So, the pancakes. You get two and pick a topping to go with them – I ordered them with walnut and banana. They came out enormous – drizzled with maple syrup and a big scoop of cream. As I tucked in, I also came across the odd little chocolate chunk as well. Absolute heaven, with the soft pancake, crunchy walnuts and smooth banana.
