shanghai house

There’s no Waffle House here in China.

Not an IHOP anywhere either.

What we do have is Mr Pancake, Shanghai’s premiere breakfast food chain!

I’d never been to one until yesterday, when some colleagues and I popped in after an early morning meeting. And ask expected, the menu was filled with all sorts of pancakes. Eggs and bacon and breakfast burritos too, but as the name makes clear, pancakes are the star here. Like this stack of sweetness…

Nutella and Caramel Popcorn Pancakes!

This was not my order, and I did not try them, but that plate was clean in no time!

I did have an order of plain pancakes with butter and syrup, and they were quite good. I’m not the biggest pancake eater, but the place definitely does its name proud.

However, is it just me or is that Mr. Pancake logo kind of creepy?

Mr. Pancake has locations all around Shanghai.

JULY AND THE FINAL STRETCH

“Dear Insane Children,

“Are we there yet?!” Almost there! The animations are complete and the disc factory has been reserved. We’re just waiting on Ed to put finishing touches on the DVD/Blu-Ray menus. Don’t blame him for being slow - he has two good excuses for not yet finishing: First, he’s just moved house from Shanghai to New York (just in time for the 4th of July). More critically though, *I* screwed up and gave him an incomplete list of backer names for the credits! Oops :(

As soon as the menus and backer credits are done… off to the factory with the DVDs and Blu-Rays! (Hey, Ed… psst… hurry, the children are getting impatient!) ;) “
