Think of this scenario: A healthy buddha bowl – filled with all those rainbow-colored vegetables that vegans have their mouth full of – to leave room for … red velvet pancakes. Of course we had to go by to try them out ourselves. Red velvet pancakes with mascarpone where the steam comes from if you cut it in half. Through the interior, a true urban jungle, you also imagine yourself outside the city bustle – even though Benji’s is located on the somewhat gray Wibautstraat in Oost.
