Wicked Pancake Parlour @ Jalan Batai KL - Wonderful Pancakes

Yellow Brick Road Cafe

Wonderful gourmet pancakes!

Wicked Pancake Parlour

"Why are there two signboards?"

That was the very first question I popped while walking towards the cafe, bemused. That was about a month back. Fast forward today, with the opening of the pancake place, it definitely made more sense. Yellow Brick Road cafe takes up the space downstairs, whereas Wicked Pancake Parlour occupies the second floor.

Photograph from my previous visit to Yellow Brick Road, during the day. I went to Wicked Pancake Parlour for dessert, after dinner.

That evening, we dragged ourselves up a flight of stairs, still bloated from our Korean barbecue dinner earlier. We picked a table right at the corner, deliberately, because it looked like the coziest spot in the entire cafe, perfect for desserts.

On weekends only, you'd get to enjoy your brunch downstairs, while still being able to order and have your pancakes delivered to you, from upstairs - vice versa. And unlike during the day, parking is free at night.


Yours truly.

We ordered and shared two pancakes - Peter Panda and Chocoholics Anonymous. There were only four pancakes available that evening - Apom Terbalik, Minimalist and the ones we had.

Peter Panda. Rm24.


Distinctly aromatic and fluffy pandan pancakes, caramelized jackfruit, addictive salted caramel ice cream and gula melaka sauce. What a fantastic combination!

Chocoholic Anonymous. Rm26.


What an incredible sight but hurry with the photograph already - it's melting! Chocolate pancakes with crushed pistachios, caramelized beef bacon (yes!) and thick spreads of chocolate and nutella sauce in between.

Overall Rating: 8/10. Our verdict was unanimous - the Peter Pandan was our favorite. It reminded me of the pandan layer cake that I used to reveled in during my childhood years - in fact I still do. The chocolate pancake was equally delectable, though it could get a tad cloying if not shared. Both the pancakes were great - fluffy and with toothsome textures. But what I thought was done really well - the condiments that came with the pancakes, which wasn't drastically new mind you, just very cleverly put together. That said, 20-odd-ish may be an exorbitant price to pay for pancakes. For me however, it felt worth it.

  3. Lies! They're closed by 5 every weekday! Have you ever felt the anticipation of visiting a place with a bunch of friends eager for a sweet fix after an early dinner and only let down by a 'close' sign?! So much disappointment. Should update your blog more often and state true info.

    1. Hey Safiyyah,
      Your circumstance was unfortunate. =(
      I'm merely stating what was publicly stated on their fb page and from what the waiter told me.
      Perhaps you should drop by on weekends or put a pass to it.
      Hope this helps. =)
