Tempura, sushi and matcha desserts are among the much loved Japanese food in Singapore. A food item that may not be readily associated with Japan but seems to be in vogue here is souffle pancake. The new fluffstack @ Suntec City West Wing is another cafe in Singapore that has opened to cater to craze for the photogenic Japanese-style fluffy pancakes.
fluffstack @ Suntec City West Wing
fluffstack is set up and run by local pancake enthusiasts to rival established names from Japan like Gram, Hoshino and Riz Labo. The local pancake cafe located in the revamped West Wing basement of Suntec City occupies an open compact space. Tables are literally right next to the busy walkways. It is not the place to go to if don’t want to be seen.
fluffstack @ Suntec is a self service cafe. Orders and payments are made at the counter. You collect and food and beverages when your number is flashed on the digital screen.
The menu of fluffstack is straightforward. It offers souffle pancakes with different toppings. Hot and cold beverages are available. Below are pictures of the menu boards of fluffstack @ Suntec.
Souffle Pancakes & Coffee
We ordered the Classic Souffle Pancakes ($8.80) and the Mango Passionfruit Souffle Pancakes ($14.80) as well as a piccolo latte ($3.50) and the Orange Mocca Iced Brew ($7).
fluffstack @ Suntec prepares the souffle pancakes, airy meringue-like batter cooked in flat grills, in small batches as orders are received. Expect to wait from about 5 to 15 minutes for the pancakes.
The Classic Souffle Pancakes consisted of a stack of two pancakes served with maple syrup, honey butter and Chantilly cream. The souffle pancakes had a consistency like that of a soft marshmallow. They were indeed very fluffy. The pancakes were enjoyable eaten with just some cream and butter or with just maple syrup. Mix everything together and you would get a different and more interesting combination of flavours.
The Mango Passionfruit Souffle Pancakes looked really pretty. The stack of 2 pancakes was topped by coconut sago and Chantilly cream and drizzled with passionfruit compote. A generous slice of mango was served on the side. The combination of textures and flavours was interesting. The passionfruit compote was a tad too tart for us. The mango was very sweet. In fact, we probably enjoyed the mango more than the pancakes drizzled with the compote.
We liked the piccolo latte – the small but mighty mellowed espresso with steamed milk. The Orange Mocca Ice Brew was interesting but not something we really fancied. We would stick to classic coffee.
The next time we go to fluffstack @ Suntec we would probably just order the Classis Souffle Pancakes and a simple coffee. That would be a cheap and good combination. If we really want a mango, we can always try to get one at the Gaint Supermarket nearby afterwards.
