Hotcake Parlor Fru-Full
Time Out says
This fruit parlour hidden in the back streets of Akasaka specialises in warm hotcakes and fruit desserts. The hotcakes here are perfectly round with a crispy outer layer and a fluffy inside. You could go for standard hotcakes (¥750), but we recommend the fruit cream hotcakes (¥1,300), which come topped with seasonal fruit and whipped cream. There’s also a selection of unique sandwiches including a fruit sandwich (¥1,700, half size ¥900) and an avocado and roast ham sandwich (¥1,700, half size ¥900), both of which are made using hotcakes instead of bread slices and are available for takeout.
Don’t forget the seasonal fruit parfaits topped with ice cream, nata de coco and copious amounts of fruit. The basic fruit parfait (¥1,800) and banana chocolate parfait (¥1,500) are offered year-round, but premium flavours (from ¥2,000), like mango and peach during the summer, or chestnut and strawberry in autumn and winter, are not to be missed.
