A Happy Pancake Shinjuku (Shiawase-no Pancake)

Have you heard of the super fluffy Japanese pancakes? One restaurant that is famous for making some really good ones is 'A Happy Pancake' (Shiawase-no Pancake 幸せのパンケーキ), and this restaurant now has a location in Shinjuku. I went to try it out myself.
The restaurant is in Shinjuku Sanchome, so the best way to get there from Shinjuku Station is by taking the South Exit. From there it's at about a 5-minute walk.

It's a bit hard to find since it's located on the second basement floor of a building so try to spot the shop sign above to know you're at the right place.
The interior is quite nice and calming. The staff spoke some English and they could also provide you with an English menu, so even if you don't speak Japanese, ordering shouldn't be a problem.

The famous fluffy pancakes!

Standard pancakes ¥1,100
There were some pretty tantalizing more deluxe versions but I decided to have the standard pancakes since this was my first time.

The pancakes are served with a big scoop of honey-tasting whipped butter. It seems like a lot of butter but actually it's pretty light so the amount was just right.
It also comes with a syrup. Judging by the color I thought it was maple syrup but it actually tastes more like honey.
The pancakes are so thick and airy that they actually jiggle a bit when you move your plate. The reason for that is that they are made soufflé style from whipped egg whites, just like meringue is made.

Souffé pancakes have to be cooked slowly so it takes about 15 minutes for your order to be served.
They're served to you still hot so the whipped butter on top of them melts a bit so you can spread it easily on the pancakes. The honey-buttery taste coupled with the fluffy texture is spot on!

In closing

These pancakes were excellent so if you like sweets, you definitely won't be disappointed. I would probably recommend going there for a weekend brunch. 'A Happy Pancake' in Shinjuku opens from 10:00 AM on weekends and national holidays, and from 10:30 on weekdays.
Japanese food culture enthusiast. Love to explore new areas and discover local specialties.
