Eating in London: Pancake Day at The Diner

I know, two post's in a day? Unusual but let's just say I'm spoiling you. I didn't want to deprive you of those beautiful Bourjois Eye Shadow Crayons and well, let's just say this post NEEDED to go up as soon as possible, because there's a bit of a ticking clock on it. 

I'm not usually one for pancakes but as soon as I saw the specials for Pancake Day one of my favourite restaurants ever had on offer, well I just couldn't refuse and the fact that you could only get it for a few days only made me want it more. 

The first straw was the gorgeous image of the red velvet pancakes they were going to serve. And that was the point I just had to go, they looked amazing and I needed them in my life. I don't know why but I just did. Then entered the rest of the images of the other pancake offerings they had and the Reece's Pieces Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce, Peanut Butter Chips and Peanut Butter Ice Cream was well, just needed. I'm a nut butter fiend, well anything nutty, and so I had to get this right? Stuff the healthy eating plan when there's a chance to get these in your belly... 

Again, much like not being a massive pancake fan, I usually have to be in the mood for them which is pretty rare, I'm also not that much a fan of sweet food but by god, these were amazing. Normal American style pancakes with the peanut flavours coming from the chips and ice cream, chocolate sauce and dusted with icing sugar. Can you tell I loved them yet? 

The only thing I found a little disappointing was that it wasn't exactly like the dreamy pancakes shown in the image advertising them, although I honestly can't say I mind as these were delicious none the less! Can I go back to yesterday and eat them all over again please? 

Luckily, it wasn't just a special for pancake day and you can get your hands on all of the pancakes specials until Sunday the 22nd! Trust me, you just need to get down there and try these babies while you can. Make a trip of it and pick up a burger and some fries too (The hanger fries or the garlic butter fries are my total favourites and the chilli cheese fries come highly recommended from all of my meat eater friends). The Diner is a total favourite of mine and I'm forever going to the one just off Carnaby St. Completely recommend!

Have you been to the Diner before? What did you do for Pancake Day?
