Modestly billed as an ‘experimental crêperie-cum-intimate cocktail speakeasy’, Shutterbug is an independent Shoreditch joint specialising in organic buckwheat pancakes of every description, with
plenty of booze added to the mix. On the savoury side, expect fillings ranging from smoked salmon, egg and asparagus to pulled pork with cheese and pickles; on the sweet side, try salted caramel,
Nutella and banana or honey, almond and mascarpone. The menu also runs to various omelettes, soups and salads, plus a full roster of breakfast and brunch possibilities (including croissants).
Shutterbug is licensed until midnight for cocktails, wine and artisan beers, which can be drunk inside or out on the heated courtyard. It’s also geared up for takeaways.
Today when a friend at work suggested that we should celebrate Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) by having some pancakes/Crepes for lunch I struggled for two seconds with the decision. As someone who loves food and especially pancakes I had already mentally planned out my whole evening of pancake celebrating (lemon and sugar, Nutella, strawberries and whipped cream, banana, blueberries and maple syrup). Ok you get the gist, we could be here a long time otherwise. So the prospect of having them for lunch and dinner was almost too exciting. We decided to head to Shutterbug Bar and Creperie in Shoreditch which does the best selection of traditional sweet and experimental savoury French pancakes. If visiting in the evening and not during working hours they do brilliant cocktails too. Their pancakes are so good this weekend their Red velvet pancake with chocolate and strawberries (Â£5) appeared on Channel 4 Sunday Brunch. As I was having sweet pancakes for dinner I opted for their pulled pork with cheese and pickles (Â£8) which was absolutely delicious. There was lots of BBQ pork with oozing soft melted cheese. To be honest there was loads on the menu that I would happily have eaten if given the chance. Not sure what you are having on your pancakes tonight and fancy getting some inspiration have a look here.Well what ever combination you choose have fun, I am off now to make my sweet offerings, well it is Pancake Day after all.
