Pancakes are happy food, perhaps make you forget about the stress from work. Okay, not when you got to wait a long time for them.
Belle-Ville Pancake Cafe from Osaka Japan has opened at 100AM Mall, which joins the other Japanese counterparts such as Don Don Donki, Nadai Fujisoba Ni-Hachi, Ramen Keisuke Tori King and Monster Curry.
It replaced the space previously occupied by Tsujiri.
The OLs working around let a gasp of ”Pancakes!” when they walked past, with their brighten eyes of curiosity, and this should certainly pack in the crowds during peak hours.
Have a ramen, buy some snacks from Don Don Donki, bread from Pullman Bakery, and end with pancakes from Belle-Ville.
Such is a ‘Japanese’ life there.
The pancake café is known for its meringue made-to-order mille-feuille (French for “thousand layers”) pancakes, included with homemade whipped Hokkaido cream, stacked from 2 to 8 layers.
Offerings include Strawberry and Mixed Berry Pancake, Mango Pancake, Grilled Apple with Homemade Caramel Pancake, Matcha with Rice Ball and Red Bean Pancake, and Chocolate with Grilled Banana Pancake, priced from $11.90 to $16.20.
What makes their pancakes so fluffy include the usage of fresh milk, and they are made fresh-to-order.
I had the Chocolate and Grilled Banana Pancakes ($12.20 for 4 pieces, $16.20 for 8 pieces), topped with light torched bananas and chocolate sauce.
A word of caution that IF you are in a rush for the next meeting, then you would want to consider coming another time.
Even though the café was not that crowded when I ordered, my pancakes still took about half an hour to arrive (plus my order was wrong).
Order the 8 and they would be stacked up like a column of fluffiness, though mine quickly leaned to the side like the Tower of Pisa.
These pancakes were indeed moist and soft, with bananas blended into the batter, the interesting part was a half-cooked centre.
Ah, that warm, soft, fuzzy feeling.
Even though I added ice cream, I thought the scoop could be fuller as there was not enough chocolate sauce and nuts to go with the stack.
There are many pancake cafes in Singapore, and I do think Belle-Ville does offer some of the best out there. If only they can improving on their speed and system.
