ILanga Fire Pancake Restaurant – rural Transkei, South Africa
Pinkie and Maina are two Xhosa ladies from the coastal village of Queleni, deep in rural Transkei. Close to Bulungula Eco-lodge, they were able to learn about pancake making from a passing traveler. They saw the opportunity to cater to the comfort desires of international tourists to the lodge, which is 40% owned by the villagers. Ilanga Fire Pancake Restaurant is the result. The most delicious pancakes, and real coffee in the deepest rural Transkei!
