Thank you!

Pancakes & grill on James street was nice enough to make a 2 course set menu of main and dessert with a free drink as part of Yvonne's charity dinner.

For mains, we all had a choice of a savoury crepe...I ordered the Mexicana which I was generously filled with mexican goodness and a stringy cheese to follow. 

Mexicana - A hint of chilli. two homemade crepes filled with chilli beef together with slivers of almonds, spicy sauce, grated cheese and sour cream. Viva!

Other pancakes that were ordered....

Pocket full of chicken - Tender pieces of chicken and fresh mushrooms in creamy sauce. A golden melt of parmesan cheese, our special tomato salsa and sour cream.

Fisherman's - Healthy fish and prawns smothered with creamy white wine sauce delicately spiced. Top with homemade hollandaise and seafood sauce.

Tabriz - French crepes filled with wholesome ground beef, cooked in red wine, herbs, onion, mushrooms, tomatoes, capsicums and spices then topped with homemade tomato sauce

Everyone enjoyed their crepes and was rather stuffed but no way is dessert going to waste! especially knowing that their dessert pancakes are a hit.

I tried the Blackforrest cherry and the Jaffa Orange. I enjoyed both desserts in particular the Jaffa orange was fresh and really tasted like the Jaffa Orange flavoured lindt chocolate...the pancake was abit more chewier than the blackforrest cherry pancake though.

Blackforest cherry -  Succulent cherries in a Liqueur sauce on a chocolate pancake topped with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream and a downpour of grated chocolate.

Jaffa Orange - Slices of fresh orange around a fluffy buttermilk pancake drizzled with brandied orange sauce and topped with chocolate fudge, ice cream and cream.

Chocolate jewels - A real chocolate pancake topped with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, then showered with grated chocolate plus chocolate fudge drizzled over the top. * think they forgot the grated chocolate*

Hot Bavarian Apple - Hot, spicy apple, sultanas and cinnamon served with a buttermilk pancake, topped with cream and ice cream.

Raspberry cheese 'n' cream - A delicate french crepe with delectable mix of cream cheese, sultanas and vanilla accompanied by a scoop of cream vanilla ice cream. Surrounded by raspberry coulis.

Overall, the charity dinner was a success, the warm environment, lovely company and everyone being content with their food was a perfect recipe for MORE donations. I probably would come back to pancakes & Grill but probably just for dessert as to me the crepes were rather repetitive in flavour.
