The famous Flipper’s Pancakes from Japan has opened in Singapore at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Ngee Ann City.
It has taken over the space previously occupied by D’Good Cafe.
While not all ‘famous’ Japanese pancake cafes may pack in the crowds in Singapore (*cough cough*), the arrival of this Japanese franchise will definitely a game changer that will being something new and interesting to the pancake scene.
Their Kiseki pancakes (well, most of them) are served in stacks of 3s, come with a wobbly soufflé-like texture, and with house-made maple-butter cream.
So comparing this to say the average souffle pancake in Singapore, what makes that difference is that the milk, Kanagawa Hinata eggs, and Hokkaido Kitahonami wheat flour used are all imported from Japan.
Which would just give that added subtle ‘egginess’.
The soufflé pancakes are said to be so delicate that they are served with two forks as part of Flipper’s signature experience.
Diners in Singapore can come expecting 6 different soufflé pancake flavours.
They include the original Kiseki Pancake Plain ($16.80), Matcha Azuki ($20.80), Hazelnut Chocolate ($21.80), Millennial Strawberry ($20.80), Fresh Fruits ($21.80). And for a savoury option, there is the Benedict Pancake ($21.80).
Go for the Millennial Strawberry as it is a seasonal item till November 30.
The special edition Millennial Strawberry features fresh Chitose strawberries, velvety cream cheese and homemade strawberry jelly sandwiched between the soufflé pancakes.
I found this light enough to have without having a filling feeling, and the strawberries-blended cream wasn’t too sweet or tangy.
The pancakes’ texture was not quite the ordinary – soft and melted in the mouth almost like candy-floss, fluffy but strangely on the wet side.
They were really light and not too sweet, so you wouldn’t feel guilty finishing one on your own. But 2 or 3 alone would have been too much.
To be fair, this was certainly above the average pancakes, but I am not exactly sure if I would queue LONG for this. But you can always reserve online in Singapore’s outlet: www.q4what.com/flippers (from Nov 9).
