Tuesday (February 21) sees millions of people around the UK indulge in Pancake Day, celebrating the popular food topped with the likes of syrup, lemon and sugar, and jam. For Mancunians hoping to join in on the celebrations, there are many options around the city for pancakes, not just McDonald’s and Tim Horton’s.
Pancakes, or Johnnycakes, griddlecakes, flapjack or hotcakes as they are also known, date back over 30,000 years and exist in pretty much every culture on earth. In England, Shrove Tuesday has been celebrated on the day before Ash Wednesday since around 1,100 A.D., on which pancakes have been consumed before Lent - and while we might not use the name anymore, we still like to enjoy pancakes on this day.
Whether you prefer English pancakes, or are a fan of the fluffy, American pancakes, there are multiple cafes and restaurants to visit in Manchester. And if you don’t feel like sitting in, McDonald’s and Tim Horton’s got your back with drive-through restaurants around the city.
