A Happy Pancake

Our last stop for fluffy pancakes in Hong Kong. Truthfully, it was starting to get overwhelming with the number of pancakes we were stuffing into our faces but we decided to fit in one last place where locals willingly queue for hours to eat their pancakes.

We came over after our breakfast at Grams and there was already a long queue waiting for tables. There was a good mix of families and young people since it was a weekend and many people were just heading out for brunch.

The café itself is not very big with simple clean decorations. Facing the front of the café is a huge open concept kitchen with a window where customers can see the staff making the pancakes.

There is also an outdoor veranda with a few tables covered by huge parasols.

They also have both savoury and sweet items on the menu and since we were here for the pancakes, we ordered 2 of the more popular ones from the 8 kinds they have in the menu.

We waited for a pretty long time for the plain pancake as they totally forgot our orders. The service was ok but I guess they were totally understaffed and there are too many customers with different demands. The soufflé pancakes here are very fluffy and soft and had a stronger egg white taste compared to the rest. I personally think this is next best to Gram.

We ordered the cheese mousse with berry compote and the texture was slightly stiffer so there was a small consistency issue although it wasn’t a huge issue.

Overall, we waited around 45 mins for a table and another 20 mins for all our orders to arrive at our table. I wouldn’t say that the soufflé pancakes are so good that I would queue for them again and I believe it might be a trend that will fade so I will probably pop by when there is no more queue.
