While exploring the little town of Shimokita (see post here), I chanced upon this
cute little pancake cafe
The window told me that the pancakes here are fluffy and moist. I like fluffy and moist.
And I like cozy little cafes
But I do not like to wait in line when there is a whole new town waiting to be discovered
So I opted for take-out. The line moved faster.
Spotted on the counter: Tansan bottled water!
Of course I had to try the "new style pancake"
They wrapped it so nicely, probably assuming I would eat it when I get home.
You see, in Japan, you do not walk and eat. You find a place, sit down, and eat with
But when life throws me a pancake pie, I throw etiquette out the window
I had flakes and powdered sugar all over my top. SHAMELESS, I KNOW.
The pasty was light and extremely crisp, the custard light and fluffy, everything was light -
even the flavors. I imagined Mom would really love this, but I wished hard that it would
rain maple syrup.
(Yes, the pancake was moist and fluffy as the window promised.)
