It’s Vietnamese pancakes which are order of the day for Shrove Tuesday at this pan-Asian Fitzrovia restaurant. They are called bhan xeo, which means ‘sizzling cake’ due to the sound the batter makes when it hits the pan. They are served with a variety of fillings such as chopped pork, prawns, fish and vegetables.

There are three choices of pancake on the menu at Rivington Grill: a ‘healthy’ blueberry and East End honey option; an ‘indulgent’ lemon and sugar number; or a ‘blow out’ double-chocolate ice-cream, banana and caramel-sauce pancake. Decide which one you’re in the mood for.
