Pan Cakes


I must├óÔé¼Ôäóve said that more than a million times while eating pancakes in Japan. Pancakes are my passion. Well, they aren├óÔé¼Ôäót really, to be honest, but I liked the alliteration. I do love pancakes, but if they were truly my passion, I would be eating at a different pancake joint every day in Tokyo. You could totally eat pancakes everyday and not repeat yourself. If you├óÔé¼Ôäóre a pancake connoisseur and you├óÔé¼Ôäóre looking for where to eat fluffy Japanese pancakes in Tokyo, look no further. There are three big pancake places that everyone seems to visit, and for good reason.
If you haven├óÔé¼Ôäót seen/eaten Japanese pancakes, you├óÔé¼Ôäóre in for a treat! They├óÔé¼Ôäóre fluffy, cloudy, and incredibly light. There are actually many, many kinds of Japanese pancakes. There├óÔé¼Ôäós hotto keiki, which are the Japanese version of regular pancakes, but on crack ├óÔé¼ÔÇ£ hotto keiki tend to be tall, thick and fluffy, but slightly on the dense side. There are also many places in Japan that do American style pancakes, which are exactly what you├óÔé¼Ôäód think ├óÔé¼ÔÇ£ the pancakes you know and love, topped with fruit, nuts, cornflakes, and the like. There are even cook your own pancake places where you have a hot plate in front of you so you can be the pancake master. But my favorite pancake, and the pancake style that I think you should absolutely eat in Japan, is the soufflé pancake.
