London’s most decadent pancake at The Botanist

For those with flippin’ good taste – Tuesday 17th February 2015

It’s your last chance to indulge before Lent, so don’t stop at simple lemon and sugar this Shrove Tuesday, sample what must be London’s most decadent pepped-up crêpe at The Botanist on Sloane Square.

The super-indulgent £32 pancake contains beautiful chunks of fresh lobster, morel and chanterelle mushrooms and a creamy, smoked garlic bisque – something to be savoured rather than scoffed!
