PSA: This is where you can pick up a FREE crêpe on Pancake Tuesday
Get down there early.
Gino’s Gelato is once again celebrating Pancake Tuesday, February 21st, by giving away free traditional crêpes to all customers until 12pm.
The sugar and lemon crêpes will be dished up hot from 9am in the morning until midday at the Oliver Plunkett Street and Paul Street counters – no strings attached.
Of course, if your tastes demand more than the run-of-the-mill version, you can always pay for a Gino’s Chocolate Oreo Crêpe with crushed biscuits, white chocolate sauce and fresh cream or a Gino’s Special with Nutella, sliced banana and chopped strawberries, but fans of the old favourite lemon-and-sugar treat can enjoy it without putting their hand in their pocket.
So, what’s the real difference between pancakes and crêpes anyway?
“The main difference is that pancake batter has a raising agent in it, such as baking powder or baking soda, and crêpe batter doesn’t.” explains the head pancake slinger at Gino’s.
“This means that pancakes are thicker and fluffy while crêpes are thin and flat.”
So now you know.
