Pancakes that make you happy
The classic 'Shiawase no Pancake' ¥1,100
Shiawase no Pancake (A Happy Pancake) is a restaurant specializing in super-fluffy souffle pancakes with nearly 30 locations throughout Japan and Hong Kong! If you've never eaten a Japanese fluffy pancake before, you'll be blown away by how soft and jiggly the pancakes are!
Seasonal Fresh Fruit Pancakes, ¥1,390
The store has a notice saying that it generally takes 20 minutes to make the pancakes and that it can even take as long as 40 minutes when the restaurant is crowded. This is because no baking powder is used, and the cooks need to whip up the eggs into a meringue each time that a pancake order is placed. These are special pancakes that use a batter that can't just be pre-made in bulk. The effort shows, and the fluffiness of the pancakes is very impressive!
Rich Cheese Mousse Pancakes with Berry Sauce, ¥1,280
Shiawase no Pancake is particular about the ingredients that they use, and the quality of the finished pancakes is outstanding. The restaurant imports manuka honey from New Zealand (some of the most expensive and high-quality honey in the world), and uses fresh butter made from raw milk from Hokkaido.
Tiramisu Pancakes, ¥1,480
In addition to the classic pancakes, there is a large menu of various flavor combinations that are all delicious. The fresh seasonal fruit pancakes are outstanding, as are the tiramisu pancakes. There are also some special pancake flavors that are limited to specific areas or shops such as the matcha pancakes shown below, which are only available in Kyoto.
Organic Matcha Pancakes with red bean butter, ¥1,380 (Only available at Kyoto locations!)
