Japanese Pancakes

June 2, 2010 vidajimenez

I consider myself a sweets lover, anything from pies to pancakes. When our professor told us we would be trying Japanese pancakes, I was super excited in fact I remember my mouth watering! But when we sat down I was very surprised at the menu. All the pancakes were not filled with  the familiar fruits and creams but layered with meat, seafood and vegetables. Not exactly what I had in mind but  something I was willing to try.  I ended up ordering a tasty pancake that had bacon,noodles and vegetables. I really enjoyed watching the chef make the actually pancakes on a hot grill right in front of us. I couldn’t believe how big the portion size was compared to everything we had eaten in Japan and I know I definitively couldn’t eat this dish for breakfast. It was a very interesting meal and even though it wasn’t the typical sweet pancake I am used to I would recommend this to anyone heading to Japan.

    This particular dish was one of the more unique meals I had in Japan. Before that day, I had never even heard of such a dish! It does seem strange to mix all those foods together, but it was actually quite good! A meal such as this one inspires me to be more creative with food.

    It reminded me of a take on an American omelet but instead of egg they use pancake mix! I think I am going to recreate that meal in my own kitchen.
