My friend and I met in Moda to finally try the long awaited breakfast plate at Munchies Crèpe & Pancake. Based on the line out the front door and seeing the plates as I’ve walked by, I was excited for this breakfast venture!
On an early Sunday afternoon we waited about 20 minutes for an open table, and it was well worth the wait. The plate quickly arrived with pancakes surrounded by sweet and salty toppings, it was a Turkish twist on an American classic.
Toppings included strawberries, bananas, grapes, fruit jellies, nutella, peanut butter, hazelnut butter, cream cheese, olive tapenade, breakfast sauce (a spicy spread made of tomatoes and peppers), cheeses, tomatoes and salami.
This plate came to 60TL for two people. 8 pancakes with almost 20 toppings with unlimited refills for the toppings and unlimited tea. Definitely a fun place to have a brunch!
The picture above is the first impression I ever had of the place. Located within a 5 minute walk from my apartment, this is what you see when the restaurant is closed.
