Breakfast at the Pancake Parlour

Yesterday morning I met my friend Robbie at Pancake Parlour in South Yarra for breakfast. He had an "IT", which you can just see in the background - two buttermilk pancakes with hot buttered walnuts and bananas and a scoop of ice-cream.

And for me... seeing as I'm back to bacon... I had a Buckleberry Pancake.



This is a buckwheat and blueberry pancake, with crisp bacon and two free-range scrambled eggs. This white thing on the pancake is whipped butter - I didn't eat it and just left it on the side. I did pour some maple-flavoured syrup (real maple syrup costs extra, whereas the maple-flavoured syrup is given to you in jugs on the table) on the bacon. I've read about this strange combination many times before, especially in reference to Canada, and have always wanted to try it. It's a flavour sensation! The salty bacon, the sweet, sweet syrup. DROOL!

(And due to the incredible fattening-ness of this dish, for the next few weeks I think I'd better stick to fruit salads for breakfast... *sigh*)

is it weird that i actually prefer the maple-flavour syrup to the real kind?
LOL but i never turn down either, to be honest. so good, mmmm. i've GOT to make this dish you had. have never had maple syrup and bacon together either, but since they're both fab separately the combination's gotta work, right? (then again people prob said that about jonny depp and kate moss hehe. brad and jen would've been a more topical example but i don't think he's fab at all)
should i stop talking now? ok. lol. byeee! xxxx

You would love the Pancake Parlour then - free unlimited jugs of maple-flavoured syrup on each table!

And I don't know what you're talking about, Brad is fiiiiiiit!
