  • Fluffy pancakes have been a popular and trending food in Japan in recent years. They are especially popular among women in Japan, both young and old, who often enjoy eating pancakes with friends or alone. It is certainly a peaceful and enjoyable moment for yourself amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.

    I have personally been to one of the cafes in Osaka to try out the famous fluffy pancake and my boyfriend was the only male in the café! So basically, if you see any males in a café famous for fluffy pancakes, it is highly likely that they are accompanying their female friends or relatives. It is rare to see a group of males eating fluffy pancakes. But I am sure it will gain popularity among all people as more places start making this delicious snack!
