Hot Cake at Jinguen in Harajuku
Do you like pancake? It is very popular now and many foreign style pancake shops are opened in Japan. Harajuku is famous pancake battleground, you will see many pancake shops especially Hawaiian style, and some have long lines in front of the shops. However, I would like to show you very Japanese style pancake here, which is called "Hot Cake" in Japan. If you go to a Japanese-style cafe, there must be "Hot Cake" in the menu, and the style is various in each shop.
Art Gallery Cafe, "Jinguen" is located between Harajuku (Meijijingu-mae) and Omotesando in Tokyo. When I went there, there is no line and the cafe had only 3 customers at 11:30 am on weekday.
Look! This very thick pancake is famous one here. The cake is crispy outside and moist and soft inside. You can adjust the sweetness with maple syrup. Delicious! There are many Japanese-style cafes which serve Hot Cake, please find your favorite one!
