Opened in February 2016, Slappy cakes is a breakfast and brunch cafe that lets you design, create, make and then eat your own pancakes. Although it may seem strange to pay to cook your own food, it really is a lot of fun (and fool proof even if you have no artistic or cooking talent).
First of all you choose your batter, selecting from buttermilk, chocolate or pandan. There are also a range of sweet and savoury toppings to choose from.
Once your batter and toppings have arrived it’s time to get creative. To make your pancakes with designs you need to draw your pattern on the griddle and leave this to cook for a few minutes. Once it has started bubbling and cooked through slightly you can fill in the rest of the pancake.
Now, for the hardest part – waiting for the pancake to cook! Once the whole pancake is bubbling, it is time to flip it over to reveal your design.
….But you still need to wait for the other side to cook. You can fill this time by adding toppings of your choice.
Finally, enjoy! If you don’t fancy pancakes, other items are also available on the menu.
We thoroughly enjoyed our pancakes and the experience, but we don’t recommend coming here when hungry as watching your food cook can be painful!
