Pancake Day at Outsider Tart (Chiswick, London)

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Pancake Day is today, and Valentine's Day is tomorrow! The time is perfect for pink heart-shaped pancakes, but this also means too many sweets this week. I had pancakes today, and pancakes are very filling. For Pancake Day this year, I am working in Chiswick. This actually gave me ample opportunity to choose from a small selection of restaurants and cafes serving up pancakes this year.


I decided on a visit to "Outsider Tart", a small restaurant/bakery located between Turnham Green and Stamford Brooke stations on the District Line. I had previously visited "Outsider Tart" just before Thanksgiving at the end of November last year in the hope of buying something for Thanksgiving. "Outsider Tart" is a tribute to American food, and in keeping with this, they do celebrate the American holidays and have special events for Thanksgiving and July 4th.


"Pancake Day" at "Outsider Tart" brought a large selection of American-style pancakes in a variety of flavours. Red velvet pancakes with cream cheese icing, pancakes with banana and peanut butter jelly, carrot pancakes, ham and cheese pancakes, blueberry pancakes, and oatmeal raisin were some of the flavours on offer.



I had the "Johnny Blues" pancakes, which are pancakes made using corn (which I don't think I'd had before; I believe it was cornflour). This came served with blueberry butter and blueberry syrup. Whole blueberries were mixed into the pancake batter. I also ordered a side of bacon, and I had a traditional American lemonade which was the correct level of sweet and sour. Seriously, everything was delicious. I couldn't quite finish my pancakes, however.


Outsider Tart is located at 83 Chiswick High Road in London, W4 2EF. They also attend street food markets at King's Cross, Chiswick Lane, and Chiswick Park at various days. They are open every day from 8:00am to 6:00pm and open until 10:00pm on Thursdays.
