Incredibly Fluffy Pancakes in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo


Flipper's, a highly popular restaurant in Tokyo, is famous for their incredibly fluffy pancakes. In fact, they're so soft, you don't even need a knife to cut through them. You definitely need to try them, especially with maple syrup and cream!

Feel free to follow favy!

Flipper's has 4 branches in Tokyo (line-up unavoidable)

Flipper's is only a minute away from Jiyugaoga's South exit.
There are currently 4 branches in Tokyo: in Jiyugaoka, in Daikanyama, in Kichijoji and in Shimokitazawa.
Before the reso even opens, there is already a line-up! Well, once you try their heavenly souffle pancakes, you'll understand why their popularity never seems to die out.
The interior is very bright and you feel as though you are sitting outside. It's perfect for bringing children.
There are about 50 seats at Flipper's.

These miracle pancakes are made with eggs from Taketori Farm

This is the standard menu item, the fresh fruit souffle pancake, ¥1,300 (excluding taxes).
This dish is served with 3 super jiggly pancakes, 3 types of fresh fruits (banana, strawberries and blueberries), with maple syrup and with whipped butter.

They are called the miracle pancakes because the recipe has been developed after many many trial and errors.
After receiving your order, the staff will prepare a meringue and it will take about 15 minutes to prepare your beautiful pancakes.
The pancakes are made with carefully selected ingredients, such as wheat from Hokkaido and eggs from Taketori Farm. Although the pancakes are made with twice as many eggs like a normal pancake recipe, they have a very mild and delicate taste thanks to the Taketori Farm eggs.

It's recommended to use 2 forks to eat this dish

The way to eat the pancakes at Flipper's is not with a knife and fork, but with two forks!
The pancakes are incredibly soft so they are easier to eat that way.

Fluffy & soft, a new kind of texture to enjoy!

As soon as you take a bite from the pancake, you can feel the fluffiness of the eggs.
You've probably never had pancakes like these, where you feel the fluffiness and the moistness at once.

Normally, when you imagine eating pancakes, it's with maple syrup or honey on top. But in this case, the maple syrup is mixed in with the cream.
The pancakes are really huge and you are served three of them! But, they are surprisingly light! So you won't have any problem finishing your plate, especially with all the fresh and delicious fruit!


When you go, you should definitely try the standard menu item, the fresh fruit pancakes! But, every month or so, there is a new seasonal dish so there's always something new and tasty to try!
