Showcasing the starch of the cassava root native to South America, Tapioca Gardens in Nundah is the pancake house that the culinary cultured and gluten intolerant will love. These pancakes are thinner and have a slightly more rough texture than the usual fluffy buttermilk stacks, but what they lack in volume they make up for in some great filling options!
Choose between the traditional tapioca (the vegan option made on tapioca starch), or the crepioca option which includes eggs and light cream cheese in the batter to make an omelette like consistency. Then it’s time to pick your filling – salmon with avocado, char grilled vegetables, chicken with mushrooms, ham and Swiss cheese and even bacon and eggs feature in the savoury menu. If you’re after something sweet though, try the banana with cinnamon, cream cheese with strawberry jam, berries with yogurt or, the crowd favourite, fruit with Nutella.
