Watch this video. Then watch it again. Embrace it. Feel it. And then fully prepare for the fact that this will be your exact reaction when you see Fuwa Fuwa’s pancakes. This Japanese café specialises in soufflé pancakes. Basically, they’re similar to a glorious scotch pancake that’s been put under a serious workout regime and bulked out big time. When it comes to toppings you can expect everything from chocolate, to strawberries, to our personal favourite, the Biscoff special. It’s a bright and simple space but be warned, Fuwa Fuwa is walk-in only and these pancakes will bring the crowds at weekends.
