Christopher’s Covent Garden: Deliciously Decadent Pancakes


Never mind that the origins of Shrove Tuesday are rooted in ancient religious ritual, there can be few more delicious meals than pancakes. SEEN would like to alert you to a truly luxurious pancake experience in this fair city.


CHRISTOPHER’S COVENT GARDEN boast that they serve London’s most decadent pancakes. Diners will surely be the judge of that. They have two headline pancakes. One savoury, one sweet; both wildly decadent. Here’s a thought – design your own outrageous creations; bacon and ice cream anyone? SEEN’s game.


The savoury option is Grilled Lobster on Blue Corn Pancake with Avocado, Sweetcorn & Smoked Jalapeño Salsa (£22). Those with a sweet tooth may prefer a Nutella Pancake Stack that serves 4: Layers of Buttermilk Pancakes, Nutella, Crushed Hazelnuts, Honeycomb Ice Cream & Chocolate Sauce (£30), perfect for friends.

SEEN will be very happy to try their own Wild Creation, using Christopher’s famous ‘Build Your Own Pancakes’ menu. Customers tick the options on a bespoke notepad, and Christopher’s kitchen will bring their pancake fantasies to life. Toppings include Maple-cured Bacon, Nutella, Salted Caramel ice cream and even some virtuous options for the health-conscious with Mixed Berries, Matcha Green Tea, and Cinnamon & Coconut Yoghurt. (Pancakes are just £6 for the base and toppings are between £1 – £2).


Available on Shrove Tuesday, February 28th 2017, throughout the day, 11.30am to midnight.

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
