(hmmm... let's try to get them all in one breath:
... and Lenny's blog friends - psssst, so sorry girls, didn't really get your names - my fault...)
Dinner commenced with much deliberation by all attendees over which type of pancake to order... (There are so many choices - all of which sound so tempting)
Huey Yee and Lisa had a scrumptious breakfast style pancake+scrambled eggs+(beef)bacon which they said was really nice...
Sin on a plate part 1
I finally settled for a yummy pancake+lambchops+mash potatoes combination which turned out great! Mmm.... the lamb was tender and juicy, the mint sauce was delicious and the pancakes... *drool* ....

Other pancakes that I would recommend are the American style "burger" pancake and the Mexican style pancake.
The waitress looked a bit grumpy (as usual) but *sigh* that's the way it is when a restaurant becomes too popular and the staff feel overworked.
I suppose it's still ~acceptable~ 'cos it's not a fine dining place.
(Grrr, if the pancakes weren't so d@mn good, I really wouldn't bother going back - I don't like having to pay a 10% service tax for someone to serve me with daggers in their eyes and a permanent scowl attached to their face)
If I had to summarise the whole experience in 2 words though, it would be:
I love going to Paddington's.
Their pancakes, both the savoury and sweet variety, are something really refreshing in the Malaysian food landscape. It also helps that the pancakes are voluminous in variety and delicious in taste.
What would I recommend at Paddington's?
It would be hard to narrow down to just a few selections!
So far, everything that I have tried has been good so just go crazy and choose whatever.
It's a great place for a lazy weekend brunch or a casual dinner with family and friends.

The After(-Dinner) Party:
We then moved on to Hartamas to check out the new bar that Pattar had been ~dying~ to visit - the Clear Bar, situated at Plaza Mont Kiara (right next to the Starbucks).
It was a cute bar.
It looks tiny from the front, but upon entering it, suddenly reveals that there is actually a rather large back section.
The bar had many comfy couches and a tasteful minimalist decor.... with white and silver and blue being the main colours in their theme.
I must say though, the selection of drinks there is rather disappointing.
No cocktails whatsoever listed, but an ok selection of beer sorta made up for it.
(Mmmm.. German beer... yum...)
Chatted with Chai on the importance of drinking Chinese herbal soups.
(Good for health and delicious too!)
During the night, Pattar received yet more birthday gifts, from Huey Yee this time...
(a cute Mr. P mug (with Mr. P's ~naughty bits~ on show *tsk-tsk*) and an adorable but strange magnet of a cow/pig cross-species mutant)

I had an early night... *yawn*.... left at about 1am while everyone else stayed back for further festivities...
