New semester had just started so I’m quite free but well report is coming soon so hahaha. Welcome back to normal student life. Lets get to the point shall we.
If you know me, I love pretty things especially food. I LOVE DESSERT AND LOVE TO MAKE THEM. Basically, I love sweet stuff plus pretty and also spicy food. One of my fav dessert is PANCAKE. I don’t know if it is categorized as a dessert or breakfast meal but for me pancake is my breakfast and dessert. Yum yum. I really love when my mom makes pancake for breakfast. I ate most of em. Well, starting with three pieces of pancakes (slices or pieces?) with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream and sometimes with chocolate sauce( if I have it in the fridge) and then I’ll eat another 2 or 3 more pancakes. 3 isn’t enough you know. Its breakfast! If I go to McDonald for breakfast, my usual set will be pancake of course. I love their maple syrup and the pancake so big but I think they should add one more slice. haha. So that is just the story of how much I love pancake but today I’m gonna write a review maybe. Kind of.
I went to Osaka with my family last Christmas. So me, my mom n my sister were waiting for my brothers and my dad buying some shoes or clothes I don’t know. We went to this cafe called gram at the Shinsaibashi street. I saw this fluffy pancake but they only sell it on limited time at 11am, 3pm and 6pm but I got there around 7pm so I couldn’t order that. So we just ordered fruit French toast and the other one was classic pancake and tea. The cafe had this rule where everyone needs to order at least one thing in the menu. So we had to order three things because there were 3 of us. The pancake was quite big but not as big as the McDonald’s pancake. It was just slightly bigger than a normal size but not a big difference. It was so soft and when mixed with fruits, so yummy and yes of course sweet. Luckily we ordered the tea and got free plain water. I was so excited because I got to eat the pancake. Sorry but I don’t have the picture of it. So that was the pancake that I got during my family holiday. It was unplanned pancake day. Yeay for me.
I went there again with my friend during the Golden Week cause I went to Osaka and again I didn’t manage to get the fluffy pancake. Instead we ordered tiramisu pancake for me and classic for my friend. Again I give a thumbs up for gram pancake. They seriously make a very soft pancake even if its not the fluffy one and it is so big. We couldn’t finish em and I was feeling so sad that I couldn’t finish it because pancake is my fav food but I’m so full that time. But I still feel glad that I could eat pancake cause I didn’t get to eat pancake ever since I come to Japan and that was my first. I was so happy cause I was craving and dying for pancakes.
When I got back to Tokyo, I thought of doing pancake hunting but of course it requires money. And also I still want to try the fluffy pancake they sell in gram cafe. So I did research and I found they have GRAM CAFE in TOKYO. YEAYYYYY!!! It is located in Harajuku along the Takeshita Street. So one fine Saturday, I decided to go there. I reach there around 3.30pm so I thought I could try the fluffy pancake. But 😭😭😭I didn’t know that they distribute ticket one hour earlier for that pancake and I cried cause I didn’t get to eat them. It was so heartbreaking and I didn’t have any mood at all after that. so after a while I regain my mood and I decided to come again on Monday.
you’ll find this crepe stall and there is a junction to gram on the left.
I went there again and reached there around 2.30pm and I was like “YES! I GOT IT” was so excited. my number was 16 and my turn will be on 4.30pm. I was really shocked that time. I need to wait again WHAT! I thought I could just eat at 3pm but I was wrong😭😭😭. So I went for shopping at Harajuku. Bought some clothes and some souvenirs for my family. Till it was almost 4.30pm I went to have my fluffy pancake. That was my lunch actually. I just gave me my ticket number and then wait for my pancake. hihi. So excited. When it has arrived I was so happy and OMG MY DREAM CAME TRUE😍😍😍. I can see it was so fluffy and jiggly and the person beside me was like “wow! I want that one too! So fluffy” and I was like “HAHA THIS IS MINE!!” in my head. They serve the pancake with maple syrup of of course and whipping cream and also butter. It was three stack of pancake and it was going to fall so I had to eat them fast! It was of course softer than the normal pancake but it didn’t like melt that fast or literally melts in the mouth. The pancake itself wasn’t that sweet and that is why you need to eat it with the cream and maple syrup. SUPERB COMBINATION. But I think if they serve with ice cream it would be much better. I don’t know is there any other better fluffy pancake than this but I just thought fluffy pancake should just melt in the mouth directly but it was super soft. You dont really need to chew much you know. The price was less than 1000yen so I would say it is affordable. I think I would give 8.5/10. I really hate that I need to wait again after coming there 1 hour earlier cause they make this so limited. I love the sweetness and it was so soft but I think that I had more expectation so a bit disappointment that it didn’t directly melt but it was super super soft. It was worth it. I love it. I’ll try to hunt more pancakes and other dessert too!!
Here is the menu
last but not least the gram PREMIUM PANCAKE
A MUST TRY PANCAKE FOR ONLY 950YEN!!
