5. Gram Cafe & Pancakes, #01-64, Waterway Point
Jiggly, puffy, and oh-so Instagrammable, Japanese souffle pancakes took over social media like a storm with videos featuring a leaning tower of wobbling pancakes! As the souffle pancake trend gained momentum, Gram Cafe & Pancakes made its way to Singapore and granted us the wish of sinking our teeth into soft fluffy clouds.
Gram Cafe & Pancakes is a franchise which originated from Osaka, Japan, bringing the authentic melt-in-your-mouth Japanese souffle pancakes to the locals. As making souffle pancakes requires lots of attention and skill, the cafe selects quality ingredients and carefully cooks the pancakes to perfection in order to deliver a smile to each customer whole-heartedly.
When it comes to souffle pancakes, it is all about the texture. In order to achieve fluffiness similar to that of a cotton candy or a cloud, a souffle pancake is whipped full of air and then slow-cooked on low heat. Subsequently, they are doused in butter and maple syrup, then topped with whipped cream, before they are served jiggling on a plate. There are also other flavours of souffle pancakes available, such as chocolate, tiramisu, and more!
On top of that, Gram Cafe & Pancakes offers all-day Japanese breakfast, mini donburis (Japanese rice bowls), and pasta for diners who prefer more variety. The interior of the store is based on a soft green colour to create a calm and natural space where customers can unwind and take it easy. The branch at Waterway Point in particular, sports a beautiful Japanese ‘Garden of Eden’ theme with instagrammable spots such as the keyhole arch entrance as well as a corner decorated with a neon sign, a loveseat, and green plants.
