Black crunchy caramel waffle by Nanny's Pavilion

Black crunchy caramel waffle by Nanny’s Pavilion

A couple of chicken sausages and boiled egg did the trick once or twice. But most of the time it would be a whole wheat toast with butter and apricot, or bittersweet orange, jam whenever the mood strikes. When I am only feeling peckish and not ravenous, breakfast for dinner does the trick. It is neither light nor heavy, and is quite easy to prepare. Waffle and pancakes are delectable breakfast for dinner menu items, but mine don’t turn out as fluffy or crispy as I want them to be. Fortunately, Bekasi has finally caught up a wee bit with Jakarta’s culinary landscape and a pancake place has been enticing people to have breakfast for dinner.

Nanny Pavilion’s was teeming with people digging into pancakes, waffles, and pasta, but mostly pancakes that Saturday night. This conceptual French-American pancake restaurant first opened its doors to the pancake lovers in Bandung on March 23, 2009, revealing Nanny Anella Byron’s mouth-watering creations running the gamut of light bites (think chicken wings and potato slices), pancake and waffle to paella and schnitzels. Its Summarecon Mal Bekasi outlet is known as the Storage Room and is one of the perfect places to grab a table, have a meal, and listen to a live band performance.

The griddle cake section is every pancake-waffle lover’s dream: original, wrapped, rolled, smothered in cream, drizzled with chocolate or caramel sauce, stuffed with peanut butter or cheese, sprinkled with cookies, or topped with ice cream or compote blend. I settled for the Black Crunchy Caramel waffle – a huge block of crispy waffle drizzled with caramel sauce, sprinkled with crushed Oreo cookie, and topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

My uncommon choice for dinner has raised several eyebrows and provoked snide remarks, but I have remained impervious. I still prefer to have breakfast for dinner, and my next choice at Nanny’s Pavilion would possibly be Linda’s Peanut Caramel Butter Roll pancake – a serving of two rolled-up pancakes with chunky peanut butter, caramel sauce, and ice cream.
