We’ve all had days when we’re just dying for a breather or a chance to just relax from the hustle of the office, stress at school or the craziness of life. It is during these times that we seek comfort in the familiar like the warmth and goodness of a well-prepared meal or what’s popularly known as comfort food.
Food has the uncanny ability to evoke feelings of nostalgia. In fact certain dishes, snacks, treats or comfort food have been known to bring about positive memories of home, family, friends or familiar surroundings which is why people crave for a taste of them when they feel like they need a pat on the back or a reward of some sort.
There are a number of food establishments in the metro that offer a smattering of comfort food but one restaurant stands out from the rest because of the reputation it has built through the years as the ultimate go-to place for mouth watering, hearty comfort food and that is Pancake House.
