1 | The Botanist
If you thought pancakes were just about lemon and sugar then head to Sloane Square, where the Botanist will have a much more extravagant variation on the lunch and dinner menus: lobster teamed with morel and chanterelle mushrooms, and a smoked garlic bisque. That should change your mind.

2 | One Canada Square
The ground floor restaurant of this iconic building is serving up appropriately luxury pancakes filled with smoked salmon, dill and spiced avocado, served with pickled fennel, caviar and truffle dressing. Fancy. And for only £11.

3 | Parlour
Kensal Rise favourite, Parlour, has some typically eccentric options on the menu this Tuesday. We’re after the bright purple beetroot ones filled with confit duck leg, with buttered golden broccoli.
5 Regent Street, Kensal Green, London, NW10 5LG; parlourkensal.com
4 | Foxlow
Hawksmoor’s little sister will have a £10 deal from 8am-10am this Tuesday, giving you coffee, juice and one of their three special pancakes - including a cheese, ham and icing sugar one (yep – we’re curious, too).

5 | Shutterbug
The Shoreditch crêperie serves them up all year-round, so they definitely know what they’re doing here. There’s a whole menu to choose from, but we’re eyeing up the chorizo, cheddar and avocado galette with the added bite of chilli jam (£7). Food will be served from breakfast until 11pm this Tuesday so there's really no reason why you can't go for lunch and dinner too.

6 | The Cadogan Arms
A stalwart Chelsea gastropub, you know you’re going to get good grub at The Cadogan Arms and this year’s pancake menu does not disappoint. Head here for a savoury pork fillet and prosciutto crêpe, with maple-glazed baked apple and cider jus.

7 | The Pearson Room
It’s already known for its eclectic menu, so we’re looking forward to The Pearson Room’s special Korean-inspired pancakes stuffed with Kimchi leaves and prawns (£7.50). A filling but fresh change to the norm.
16-19 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5ER; thepearsonroom.co.uk
8 | Riding House Café
The Fitzrovia restaurant is offering a mouth-watering Ranch special of pulled pork, BBQ sauce, crème fraiche and fiery jalapenos. Plus, the menu’s running all week-long, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Score.

9 | Sixtyone Restaurant
Tucked behind Marble Arch, away from the mania of Oxford Street, this elegant restaurant has limited edition pancake dishes on its menu on Tuesday only, including the very special potato nutmeg pancake with foie gras and macerated Muscatel grapes.
61 Upper Berkeley Street, London, W1H 7PP; sixtyonerestaurant.co.uk
10 | Senzala
Nestled right in the heart of Brixton market, this Brazilian crêperie is a must-visit and has an encyclopedic list of both savoury and sweet options. You should set aside a good while for eating here to try as many as you can, but the full English pancake is hard to beat.
Brixton Village Market, 41-42 Coldharbour Lane, London, SW9 8PS; senzalacrêperie.co.uk
