[Pork-free] We came for the sourdough and stayed for the pancakes.
Sourdough is the ‘in thing’ right now – but Smith’s sourdough is extra rustic and smoky as they are baked in wood-fired ovens.
We had ours as part of the Beef Brisket Toastie (RM38) – Black Angus beef brisket, mozzarella, sharp cheddar and mustard in between two sourdough slices.
The bread is really good – crust is crisp, not too sour, with a hint of smokiness thanks to time spent in the wood-fueled ovens. It perfectly complements the tender brisket and sharpness of the cheese.
But we think Smith’s pancakes are the bee’s knees, y’all.
The plating for Good Old-Fashioned Pancakes (RM12-22) is one of the prettiest we have seen, and it tasted good too. We opted for the choc and banana (again, true to its name) – fluffy pancakes baked with decadent dark choc and bananas, and topped with cornflakes, berries, pear and a drizzle of honey. Surprise, MF – take a random bite and you suddenly get a burst of gooey choc!
German Pancake (RM13-23), or Bismarck as they call it in Deutschland, is exactly as it looks – puffy with crispy edges and a soft custardy centre.
We had ours with honey, butter and sea salt flakes – but found the honey to be overpowering. If you do order this, we suggest opting for honey to be given on the side. Think we would order it with choc and banana (yums!) the next time.
Besides the standard sourdough, other variants as well as brioche and focaccia are also served. They all spent time in the 100% cast iron oven imported from Germany.
