Are you visiting Japan and wondering where to find those delicious ten yen (¥10) pancakes that you’ve heard and seen so much about?
The pancake is made with a batter of mozzarella cheese and pancake mix, and it is filled with even more mozzarella cheese. The pancake is then cooked on a special griddle that gives it a crispy exterior and a gooey interior.
Here are three places in Japan where you can find the famous ten yen (¥10) pancake! In fact, they cost more than ten yen! Typically priced around 500-yen each (SGD$4.57)
It’s impossible to miss the kiosk selling the popular pancakes as it has become a hit among tourists so it’s not surprising to find people making a beeline for it. The snack is freshly prepared per order so you get that crispy texture and gooey, stretchy cheese with each bite.
