Pancakes are traditionally made with a batter of eggs, milk and butter, later topped with an assortment of sweet fruits as well as syrup. The good ol’ recipe has been passed down over many generations and somewhere along the way, inspired chefs decide to either tweak the flavours or presentation of the well-loved breakfast staple. Hence, from alcohol-glazed to Barbie-inspired, here are 5 unique must-try pancakes in Klang Valley!

It’s not often that one comes across an alcoholic pancake in Malaysia. Albeit having just a small content of alcohol in its Guinness glaze topping, these pancakes from Metal Box sure gives one a rush of excitement, if not due to the Guinness, then perhaps from the Gula Melaka syrup topping. Both the bitterness and sweetness in this pancake makes it a truly unique experience.

Like toast, but only better. Why not sample your pancake Big-Breakfast-style with map’s Café’s Porky Pancake? Served with bacon and a Sunny Side Up egg, the soft fluffy pancakes make for an interesting texture, as opposed to ordinary ol’ toast. Complementing the dish is a generous serving of syrup.
