Sydney – Day 1 – Part 2
After doing the Sydney Bridge Climb, it was almost 1:30pm. We met up with Mom and Auntie and decided to go to Pancakes on the Rocks in the Rocks district.
I noticed that as we were driving into the “city” from the suburbs that the streets were pretty narrow and actually reminded me of Boston. My Auntie said the streets are narrow because there was no room for the roads to develop as more and more cars made there way into Sydney. The Rocks district is a historical area in the city. This is where Europeans had originally settled when they arrived in Australia.
I was a bit worried that there would be a long wait Pancake on the Rocks from several of the blogs I’ve read. To my surprise, there was no wait at all. To be exact there was no one there, but the place slowly filled up as we were eating. We ended up ordering everything to share so that we can each try a little bit of everything.
It’s called Pancakes on the Rocks, but we only ordered one pancake for dessert and one savory pancake and 3 savory crepes. Can crepes be considered pancakes?
I clearly remember ordering the potato pancake under the list of savory pancakes (and crepes) on the menu but I can’t find it on the menu listed on their website.
I was really expecting to see hash browns, but was surprised to see fluffy pancakes served with a little salad and hollandaise sauce on top. The flavors were very light and definitely needed the hollandaise sauce.
And after lunch at Pancakes on the Rocks, we walked the through The Rocks district for a little bit as we headed to the Circular Quay for views of the Sydney Bridge and then to the Sydney Opera House.
