You may know that this Tuesday is Pancake Tuesday.
Traditionally (i.e. for more than 5 days) this has meant eating your own body weight in bulging, sickly sweet, pancakes laden with cream and a token raspberry (not exactly meeting your '2 fruit and 5 veg' quota for the day!).
We wanted to give you some respite from this sugary assault on your senses.
Fortunately a star customer, Jesus (who interestingly is originally from Bassendean, which is also his surname and has a twin-brother, Cheeses) came up with an alternative.
He told us about a chance meeting with Yoko Ono in Hanoi, prior to the summit and hip-hop dance-a-thon between Trump and Kim.
Jesus (aka JB) explained his concerns to Yoko re putting on 8kg in a day from excessive pancake consumption.
Yoko held up her hand and said, "A new command I give you - Okonomiyaki!"
"I think you mean, 'I beg your pardon.' Either way, Okonomiyaki! It's a Japanese Pancake."
There were high fives all-round as the realisation of salvation dawned upon JB.
"Yeah baby, Okonomiyaki! Savoury, delish and ridiculously good for you"
The GOOD NEWS - it's on the menu at Smoults this Tuesday.
Bring in your fave Beatles tracks, a good (healthy) appetite and be ready for Okonomic enlightenment.
See you then!
