What makes Fuwa Fuwa pancakes so fluffy?
Fuwa Fuwa: “Originating from Japan, handcrafted soufflé pancakes are traditionally served at weddings and celebrations for good fortune, but have now evolved to become a treat for every occasion – from breakfast to brunch to dinner, and everything in between. What differentiates them from traditional pancakes is they are soft, bouncy and incredibly light.
Each Fuwa Fuwa pancake begins with egg whites whipped to soft peaks. Our fluffy pancake mix is made using locally sourced milk and is free of artificial additives, essential to their airy quality. The mixture is then cooked very slowly at a low temperature for up to 20 minutes, creating a high-quality dessert.”
What else do you serve other than pancakes?
Fuwa Fuwa: “Croffles (croissant-waffles), Waffles, Basque Burnt Cheesecake, Macarons, Roll Cakes and Specialty Drinks.”
What are some things people may not know about Fuwa Fuwa?
Fuwa Fuwa: “While souffle pancakes have their origins in Asia, we always try our best to bring elements of east and west together. Fuwa Fuwa continues to innovate by experimenting with new ways to seamlessly blend elements of various cultures together in our menu, not only allowing our customers to taste flavours from around the world, but to also allow people – regardless of where they come from – to find familiarity and comfort in our creations.”
