The fluffiest, tallest pancakes I've ever had. Yummy. They have a special technique of cooking them and they taste so delicious. They have various kinds - savoury and sweet. And they always make them fresh.

We visited here after a 3 mile hike so everyone was famished. The pancakes were delicious- like a mix between a soufflé and a pancake. We tried both sweet & savory and they were both great!

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
