Perth's pancake restaurant in the heart of CBD

If you are exploring the CBD, doing a little wardrobe update or simply meeting with you friends for lunch in one of the gorgeous new cafes in town, there is one place that you need to visit if you happened to be born with a sweet tooth, or have suddenly developed that funny craving for something special that would not leave you alone until the desire is fully satisfied. The place is called "Pancakes at Carillon" where, among other fairly standard lunch options (including salads and burgers etcetera), one can order some beautiful, hot off the pan, pancakes and crepes.

The crepes are absolutely amazing! Folded is quarters with layers of Nutella chocolate cream and topped with the vanilla bean ice cream, this dessert will satisfy the need of any sophisticated or rookie chocoholic.

If you cannot see through your crepes, congratulations, you've been served with a pancake. If this is a case, don't worry, just make sure you ask for a bottle of maple syrup or honey. In reality, of course, you get what you order without a fail!

Great place, friendly staff, reasonable prices, central (yet tucked away) location – simply not to be missed by anyone!

Interesting fact: In the Russian culture, the crepes are called "blini" or "blinchiki". They are considered to be one of Russia's traditional national dishes (like pizza for the Italians), and are best enjoyed with red or black caviar, which adds that that extra salty sophistication to the simple everyday dish. The recipe is very simple (you can find it on the internet) but there is a trick! To ensure that your blini are as thin as the baking paper and have a decent amount of pores, you will need to add into the mix (before you pour it into the pan, of course) a small amount of baking soda, dissolved in a few drops of lemon juice or vinegar. You will not taste the soda or the vinegar, but you will certainly notice the magic! Add a few drops of olive oil into the mixture to ensure your pancakes do not stick to the pan and enjoy!

Elizaveta (7yo) speaks for herself:

"Blinchiki are especially delicious when you dip then into the sour cream. They meant to be the size of your frying pan and be quite thin. Sometimes they can be sweet if you put a little sugar into the mix, but sometimes they are not sweet because they don't have any sugar. I prefer the ones without the sugar because they taste yummier and they go much better with the sour cream!".

Vinegar and bicarb do a great impersonation of a volcano. Wouldn't they make your blini somewhat bubbly?
