Flipper’s Hong Kong – Fluffy Souffle Pancakes, All the Time
October 15, 2018
[HONG KONG] A new dessert trend has arrived in Hong Kong — PANCAKES. Nope, it’s not the thin Hawaiian-style pancakes. This time, it’s souffle pancakes. One of the most popular pancake cafes in Hong Kong is none other than Flipper’s.
I have travelled to Hong Kong twice over the past 3 months and I have seen many new cake shop openings. But being one of the first brands to bring souffle pancakes into Hong Kong, Flipper’s is one of the most successful entrants to the food scene.
I visited Flipper’s Hong Kong three times. The first time, they were closing. The second time, the queue was too long, and the staff had to cut the queue. I finally managed to try it on my third visit.
Here’s a little story about the brand. Flipper’s started in Japan. They specialize in what they call the Kiseki pancake, a special kind of souffle pancake that’s created with all-Japanese ingredients — Miyagi eggs, locally-grown wheat, and house-made maple-butter cream. It’s super fluffy, airy, and just melts in your mouth!
The menu was pretty straightforward. If you prefer the sweet version, you can choose from Plain (HK99), Strawberries & Banana (HK119), Green Tea & Red Beans (HK119) or Chocolate & Banana (HK119). If you prefer a savoury meal, go for the Bacon & Egg Pancake (HK129) or Salmon & Avocado Pancake (HK129).
I tried the plain and strawberry ones as I was here right after dinner. I was full to the brim and expected myself to not finish my pancakes, but I was wrong. When the pancakes arrived at my table, I was SO happy.
The wobbly and jiggly pancakes were tall and fluffy. The first bite made me swoon. The pancakes were so eggy and light, truly like souffle! Soft and smooth like cotton, the pancakes had a slightly sweet exterior. I finished them all within minutes. The strawberry version is good for those who want something tangy and refreshing to pair with their pancakes.
There is always time for good pancakes. And I, a self-professed pancake lover, can eat pancakes every day. If you have the patience, get in line for some yummy pancakes. I promise you that the wait will be well worth it. I hope someone will bring Flipper’s into Singapore!
