I was out with a few lovely sisters for a meeting on a nice cool day, the meeting finished and we were all feeling a little hungry. They suggested to eat at a quaint little korean place not far from Tottenham court road called ‘Seoul Bakery’. They’d tried and loved this place many times before. I had no idea what foods they served and if I would even like it, but being the open-minded adventurous little one that I am, I was in.
We got to the place and it was teeny, but boy can looks be deceiving, the portions were generous, the flavours packed a punch and every dish was easy on the pocket. It really was an education for both mind & mouth as I learned about many of the intricate dishes (we ordered more or less everything off the menu).
Now one dish in particular stood out to me and I wanted more of it; a delicious & simple seafood pancake. So when I got home I did a little research on authentic recipes to make this pancake, I gave it a shot in my own kitchen and it was outstanding (if I dont say so myself).
It was so good I had to share it with you guys. We all like a breakfast pancake but you’re gonna LOVE this seafood pancake and not to mention the dip, ahhh the dip so easy yet so divine, the one is nothing without the other. Don’t take my word for it, listen to the party that shall commence in your mouth when you take a bite of this beauty.
