I’ve been wanting to try ricotta pancakes for a while after seeing people post them on Instagram.
I was eager to know if they taste as good as they look.
Was wondering what to eat in Odaiba and saw a nearby cafe Bill’s, a British coffee chain in Odaiba, famous for these unique fluffy pancakes.
Bill’s in Odaiba is located on level 3 of DECKS Tokyo Beach mall. Expecting a long queue, we were there at about 4pm and were surprised that it was only half full. Yay!
The place sells western breakfast and also has lunch and dinner plate options. They also have a good selection of coffee, tea, and healthy ‘green’ drinks(very potent, by the way haha). I had the cappuccino, which was good too.
Then came the pancakes, larger than I thought – three fluffy thick wobbly stacks of delicious- looking sweet treats! Every slab came with a slab of sinful browned butter. I took a small, plain cut as my first bite, and it tasted rather bland, unfortunately. Maple syrup and butter saved the dish, as usual. Then we decided to add some salt to it, and it was surprisingly good!
I think this dish is unique in its texture, and not for its taste. In fact it tasted more like a fluffy omelette as the eggy taste was quite significant in this one.
Overall, I feel that these are worth trying, but do order it to share as the portion is rather huge. Taste wise, it isn’t as good as it looks, really. I would go for Macdonald’s pancakes over these actually. Haha. But what do I know, you might like it more than I do! Just remember the salt and maple syrup 🙂
Have you tried riccota pancakes before? Do you like them? Let me know in the comments! 🙂
