Flipper’s is opening in Westgate
Souffle pancake fans, listen up: Flipper’s, the famed Japanese souffle pancake cafe from Tokyo, has announced that they will officially be opening a new outlet in Westgate! The tentative launch date is 9 October 2023, though that is subject to change.
Flipper’s first opened in Singapore in 2020, and garnered long queues for their signature fuwa fuwa Kiseki Pancake ($16.80++). Their flagship outlet is located in Takashimaya, which will close as soon as their Westgate cafe opens.
For those who aren’t very familiar with Flipper’s: they’re the OG inventors of souffle pancakes. Their Omotesando outlet in Tokyo sports long queues till this day, but thanks to their Singapore opening, you no longer have to take a flight out to get your fix.
As mentioned, their Kiseki Pancakes are world-renowned. These cakes are so fluffy and cloud-like in texture, so much so that you won’t need a knife to cut into them. As everything is made to order, you can expect to wait around 15 to 20 minutes for your order to arrive.
They’re best known for their plain Kiseki Pancakes, served with a dollop of fresh cream and maple syrup, as well as a dusting of powdered sugar. However, Flipper’s also serves up other sweet and even savoury souffle pancake options.
One bestseller is their Hazelnut Chocolate Kiseki Pancake ($21.80++), served with a hazelnut chocolate spread and half a caramelised banana. If you’re team savoury, there’s the Eggs Benedict Souffle Pancake ($22.80++), which comes with tiger prawns.
A brand representative confirmed to Eatbook.sg that the Westgate Flipper’s outlet will also have three new savoury and six new sweet pancake options, including a creme brûlée souffle pancake and a Japanese curry katsu pancake.
We’ll update this article with more information when we have it.
