Miss Pinky mentioned this place the other day, and I realised that these guys follow me on Twitter, and I haven't made the effort to go and try them out. Well now I am, and this time I'm going to go with Miss Pinky and her new boyfriend who I am still stuck trying to give him a nickname. He looked offended when I suggested one name! (Yes, the new boyfriend knows I blog too!)... So I think I will call him Mr Picky, as he is apparently picky with food. (He might not appreciate this but I like it). (^_^)v Good thinking Geek!
I got there early and was sitting and waiting for them, plus passed a level in Candy Crush... It does start getting easy-ish by the way. Just have to work on your gaming skills.
Before I came here I had looked on the website beforehand just to see what the pancakes, desserts and savoury foods were like. They all sound great, but I wish there were pictures I could see. On the pancake section you can hover over the item and you can see a picture... That's not really a good design feature by the way, because it doesn't work properly on Google Chrome...
|Outside My Old Dutch|
My Old Dutch in Holborn is very close to the station so you won't get lost at all. As we stepped in we got seated straight away...
|Sorry for fuzzy picture... The inside|
We all needed time to decide what to eat because we haven't had a savoury pancake for a bit, and I have never been to My Old Dutch before. In the end this is what we had...
|Compote of Berries pancake with ice cream|
I had the Banana, Nuts, Cream and Chocolate sauce Waffles. This tasted really good! However the cream melted too quickly (I wasn't quick enough to eat it!) and it wasn't filling... :( They should've put an extra waffle in for me!!

Miss Pinky had the Lamb Stew pancake... Interesting! This one tasted really good, and I just thought why didn't I order a savoury pancake in the first place?!

After eating my waffles, I still felt hungry. I wanted a proper pancake... A Dutch pancake! :P And Miss Pinky wanted something sweet.... So we had this. Mr Picky was already full from what he had, so he didn't order anything else.
Miss Pinky decided to order a You Choose your own. It was basically the same as what Mr Picky had... ¬,¬"" Oh dear... she didn't finish it. It was way too big!

And I had this... The My Old Dutch pancake. This was very filling, but I didn't attempt to finish it. I think I would have without the presence of Miss Pinky and Mr Picky!! It was almost like looking at a thin crust pizza heheheh...

Total cost came to £60 something... Expensive!!! Mine was about £16 worth not including the beer I had. If I need to come for dessert after a long day I think I would come here. It was a very peaceful restaurant for a Sunday!
My geeky rating: 4.5/5 (giving to a lot of places recently!!)
- Massive pancakes both sweet or savoury
- Ok prices
- Good, spacious seating area
- Waffles didn't fill me up... and that's about it!
