The famous Flipper’s Pancakes from Japan will be opening in Singapore at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Ngee Ann City in Nov 2020.
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.
Made with milk and Miyagi eggs that are imported straight from Japan, their Kiseki pancakes are served in stacks of 3s, come with a wobbly soufflé-like texture, and with house-made maple-butter cream.
The soufflé pancakes are said to be so delicate that they are served with two forks as part of Flipper’s signature experience.
Varieties previously included the Plain Kiseki Pancakes, Green Tea with Red Bean, Strawberry, Blueberry and Banana, and Hazelnut, Chocolate, Caramel Banana.
The pancakes’ texture I had in Hong Kong was not quite the ordinary – soft and melted in the mouth almost like candy-floss, fluffy but strangely on the wet side.
I haven’t had the Japan ones before, and so couldn’t quite compare.
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.
