On our trip to Melbourne we visited the famous Chadstone Shopping Centre which boasts 530 stores and is the largest mall in the southern hemisphere. It dwarfs anything that is available here in Auckland. The centre has an abundant amount of natural light shining through by way of its transparent glass ceiling, which makes it easy on the eyes and comfortable to shop. To no surprise, we couldn’t make it to every corner of the mall and inadvertently needed a rest. Happily we found that The Pancake Parlour was conveniently located inside, having just seen the standalone store on our way to the mall. The pancakes are amazing. We ordered the Regular Stack, and as The Parlour likes to say, ‘there’s nothing regular about the Regular Stack’. You have my word. There is 100% truth in that. It might not look like anything astounding, but believe me it was incredibly good. Secretly I hoped they would sell their mix in powder form so I could relive the memories back here in Kiwiland.
