Pancake Day is coming up and if you’re planning any stories on where to go for any interesting or different pancakes, Pho is a great place to start. We love a traditional pancake, but why not switch it up this year?

Their classic Vietnamese pancake (banh xeo) is incredible. It’s savoury, crispy, and will blow your mind. Made with a thin layer of rice flour, water and turmeric, it’s fried up in a pan and filled with either tofu, chicken or prawns and served with fresh Vietnamese herbs and a salty dipping sauce (nuoc cham).

What’s more, this pancake is perfect for vegans and gluten free diners.

Pho normally only serve their banh xeo in the evenings but for one day only – Shrove Tuesday – you can get them all day long.
