Pancake Day, London Edition

From crêpe eating competitions with my childhood friend K, to ordering pancakes at almost every brunch spot I visit, I must admit I’ve eaten my fair share of pancakes.

And that’s not even the craziest part

I can’t believe I’ve been in Lagos for 13months now and I haven’t had a single pancake – now that’s weird !!

That has got to change
