The Best Pancakes in the World are in Melbourne, Australia
When you travel, no matter how far, you eat a lot of different meals. Few are memorable. Sure the meals may taste excellent, but long after the trip is over, you can’t remember exactly what it was that made it taste so good. You just remember that it was good. Eating jellyfish and my Zimbabwean Chicken Sandwich are the exceptions. I can add mini pancakes at Cafe Verona in the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, Australia to this list.
How good were they? So good I had to return twice for these bite-sized treasures of indulgence. Make a circle with your thumb and pointer finger and you’ll have the approximate size of these pancakes. They are made in a fancy grill right before your very eyes.
You can order them with lemon and butter, maple syrup, jam, mixed berries and chocolate. Each plate is also served with whipped cream or ice cream. I chose the mixed berries – a combination I would highly recommend.
The fresh, sweet whipped cream made for an excellent pairing with the slightly tart berries.Top it off with powdered sugar and enjoy.
Lines can be quite long for Cafe Verona’s menu items, but the wait will be worth it. My only regret was not finding a way to package these little beauties up and bring them home to the United States.
Veteran travelers will tell you that trying new foods is one of the great pleasures of traveling. And when you make a delicious discovery, you certainly want to take advantage of enjoying it as often as possible since you may not ever eat there again. It could be something exotic, or in this case, a familiar breakfast staple. Whatever it is, bon appetit!
