The Ugandan Banana Pancakes.

Dear 5 star hotel, this is what I had in mind when I ordered for pancakes.

Pancakes in Uganda are not made out of eggs, milk and flour but rather, plantain (bananas) and plain cassava flour. These pancakes, commonly known as kabalagala are usually found on the streets and local restaurants in Uganda.

However, most high end restaurants and 5 star hotels in Uganda don’t have Pancakes/kabalagala on their menu. So, if you really want to order for pancakes/kabalagala for breakfast, you need to be very specific on what kind of pancakes you are referring to. Otherwise, you will be equally disappointed.

I am much wiser now. I now know, there is a difference between English Pancakes and Ugandan Pancakes/kabalagala.

Having gotten a chance to taste the English pancakes out of my will, I can proudly say that the traditional Ugandan Pancakes/kabalagala are by far a better deal.

If you don’t believe me, just try them out.
