Major fan of pancakes here and soufflé ones are my weakness. Much anticipation for the Riz Labo pop-up since the news broke about its opening in July, so I was a tad disappointed when my $20++, limited to 10 sets a day, Strawberry Ice Cream Kawaii Riz-Labo Style, gluten-free pancakes seemed a bit overdone.

It was jiggly when they set it down so expectations were set, but it turned out not as fluffy as I had expected and a little dense with a slightly stiff bottom.

Still pretty decent overall, I liked the contrast in sweetness with the tangy berry ice cream (tasted more like sorbet?), light cream and jam; and honestly, it could just be an inconsistent one-off thing if you actually see the numerous photos/ posts on it. AND I still finished it all by myself anyway.

Anyhoo, worth a try especially if you’re not heading to Japan any time soon but do note that the waiting time could be quite long (maybe around half an hour depending on the crowd?).
