It’s another pancake place in Harajuku! I’ve been to Pancake Days twice, and it’s one of the more relaxed places in the area because if you go to the more popular places like Eggs n’ Things or Rainbow Pancakes you could end up queueing several hours just for a plate of pancakes. I mean, I still will do that. Just when I have more time.
It takes forever to even get into the other pancake places, but both times I’ve been here it was virtually empty; it was just us and the staff chilling in the kitchen.
But this is one of my favourite places just because the pancakes are always smiling. Wouldn’t you feel happy if your food looked happy too? They’re so generous with the smiles
Anyway, get this matcha pancake stack if you’re looking for something special. It’s not just matcha cream, but there’s also kuromitsu syrup and crunchy kinako (and a black bean or two) scattered around. So Japanese
Caramélisées banana chocolate pancake (the name is as much a mouthful as the dish), complete with a tower of chocolate whipped cream that’s even taller than the pancake stack itself.
They really seem to like their cream as thick as it can get. I had yogurt cream pancakes surrounded by a ring of berry jam.
Eggs benedict for when you’re tired of sweetsMy friend got this just because we’d already had a whole tower of pancakes. (In my menu savoury food aren’t the mains…they’re the side dishes to the dessert)
Hazelnut milk in hot and cold! Why don’t restaurants serve hazelnut milk more often? They’re amazing and taste like nutella.
When we got the bill our check came back with a mini message! All it takes is one doodle and I’ll gladly give them all my money. It’s such a small gesture but it’s what makes me wants to come back to this place. For pancakes in Harajuku, don’t miss out this one!
