This is the first overseas outpost of Osaka’s popular pancake chain. The restaurant specialises in ultra-fluffy soufflé pancakes, including its signature three-layer Premium Pancake ($138), which is made fresh-to-order. Like the flagship store in Japan, each layer is 4cm thick and is served with maple syrup, custard and fresh cream. If you want to try this cloudlike creation, note that it’s only sold at 11am, 3pm and 6pm each day in limited quantities.
Pancakes are no longer confined to the breakfast table. These batter-made rounds have received a boost in popularity in recent years with fluffy, souffle stacks being especially trendy. Originally from Japan but now just as big in Hong Kong, these airy pancakes range from the oh-so-fluffy variety to denser, tight-crumbed types that are more like cake. Just like regular pancakes, you can enjoy them with a simple drizzle of syrup and pat of butter, or you can load them up with everything from fresh fruits to chocolate sauce and homemade granola. If all this talk of pancakes has got you craving some, here are the best places to get your fix.
