Within the recent years, pancakes have become very popular in Japan, there are many delicious pancake restaurants around Harajuku and Omotesando. This time we went to a pancake restaurant serving something a little different than the ordinary menu item. The design of these pancakes it so cute, it has become extremely popular on social media in Japan.
If you are looking to eat this super cute Melon Pancake, then come visit Ginza Bridge. The shop is very close to Ginza Station, it’s located in the department store Nishi Ginza. Ginza Bridge looks like a coffee shop from the 1990s. Ginza Bridge has free wifi, so if you get a little tired after shopping this might be a good place for a snack. Warning, smoking is allowed in this restaurant.
Other than the Melon Pancake, there is other flavors of pancakes, parfaits, other sweets, and sandwiches. This main dish we were after this time was, of course, the Melon Pancakes for 1,580 yen.
We were surprised when it was brought to the table, it looks just like a real melon. The green sauce is made with real melon and the white sauce is fresh whip cream.
When cut open, it looks like this. The pancakes are layered three high and in the middle is vanilla ice cream. The pancakes were soft and had a good chewy texture, the ice cream matched very well. Surprisingly its not overly sweet, it’s like having melon cream soda. The Melon Pancakes are a bit much for one person to finish so it might be a good idea to finish this with two or three other people.
At this retro coffee shop you can eat some unique and cute pancakes. Since the pancakes are so cute, it will make you want to upload a photo on Instagram or Facebook. When visiting Ginza in Tokyo, be sure to check out Ginza Bridge for these cute and delicious Melon Pancakes.
