Pancake Day is just around the corner!

Whilst some are currently closed due to restrictions, many are available via delivery platforms. I’ve included them here on the list so that you can bookmark them for visiting when the restaurants reopen again!

In addition, Cha Cha Roll offers a fully halal savoury menu serving Bento Boxes and more!
