One of the later-coming agitators in Tokyo's pancake revolution, Portland's Slappy Cakes followed the lead of breakfast specialists Bills, Bubby's, Sarabeth's, et al., opening its first Tokyo branch in Shinjuku in 2013. The original restaurant earned a mention in Food Network Magazine's 'America's Best: Top Ten Destinations' list, not least for the fact that customers can cook their own pancakes on a hotplate at their table. The Shinjuku shop repeats the trick (though you can also have your pancakes cooked to order), as well as offering dishes like Crab Cake Benedict and the original Slappy Burger.
