The Best Pancakes In Hong Kong

1 / 13


The Stack ‘o’ Pancakes ($168 for two, $218 for three, $248 for four) at Commissary is in another league. Topping options include runny honey (with whipped butter, honeycomb and bee pollen), Maple butter (with toasted almonds and bacon), or Nutella (with mascarpone, Nutella and a crispy caramelised banana). We had a chance to try the Nutella ensemble ourselves, and can fully vouch for these loaded, fluffy cakes. And, if you’re craving something sweet for the table, Commissary’s pastry basket is divine – with everything from buttery croissants and creamy cinnabuns made in-house.

La Crêperie

La Crêperie offers gluten-free savoury buckwheat galettes, along with a large selection of sweet crêpes. The lunch set features items like the La Complete, a gluten-free crêpe topped with French ham, Emmental cheese, salad, and a sunny-side-up egg. As expected, we’d recommend upgrading to get a dessert crepe too – the salted caramel is homemade and heavenly. With a relaxed atmosphere and accommodating staff, this spot is an ideal place for a casual business lunch.
