Flipper's opened at Takashimaya Shopping Centre on Nov. 6, 2020 to a lot of buzz.
To keep up with things, the Japanese pancake chain has launched limited edition offerings with fancy seasonal fruits.
Known as snow strawberries, Awayuki strawberries are rare strawberries with a cherry-blossom-like pink, and are only available from the Saga prefecture.
Launched on Feb. 5, the Awayuki Strawberry Soufflé (S$24.80) features chopped Awayuki strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream with Valrhona strawberry chocolate shavings on a stack of three soufflé pancakes.
It was so popular that it was sold out on Feb. 17 — but perhaps due to the fact that there are only 30 platters available per day.
According to their latest update yesterday (Mar. 16), it is temporarily sold out again.
This item will be on the menu till Mar. 28, 2021, but you'll have to check their social media pages from now till then for news of its availability.
Real talk: we tried it when it first launched, and it was good. Sweet, fluffy and light. But you're only getting two strawberries for that price, so do what you will with that piece of information.
Launched on Mar. 12, the Aomori Apple Soufflé (S$22.80) includes apple wedges, a compote of stewed apple, a stick of crumble, cinnamon cream, Haagen Dazs vanilla ice cream, and a final sprinkle of cinnamon powder on a stack of three soufflé pancakes.
With Aomori apples making up over 50 per cent of the apple market of Japan, the Aomori Prefecture is known for leading the quantity of apples production.
There are many types of apples from the region, though, and it is not clear which one Flippers uses.
Flipper's will only serve 50 plates per day until end of April or whilst stocks last.
Another savoury item, the Honey Chicken Soufflé (S$22.80) has joined their selection of breakfast-themed pancakes since Jan. 22, 2021.
