A new Japanese souffle pancake shop is coming to town! Fufu is short for Fuwa Fuwa in Japanese, and it means fluffy. That’s the very heart of these souffle pancakes.

Owners of Fufu were inspired by their visit to Japan a couple of years ago, seeing how popular these souffle pancakes were, and wanted to bring these deliciousness to Vancouver. They spent months on perfecting the menu and recipes and now they are opening the doors at Broadway and Birch.

These pancakes are made-to-order, so it takes about 15-20 minutes from whipping up the batter to cooking the pancakes to perfection.

Ever since the pop-up shop appeared at the corner of Carrall and W. Hastings, I’ve been wanting to try the donuts by Cartems. Even more so after reading all the reviews and hearing the buzz about it. I was disappointed to find out that they don’t do online sales/delivery anymore, but I was delighted to have dropped by that side of town one weekday afternoon thanks to work.

I ordered the Earl Grey one since it’s one of the most popular items. The donut itself was cakey, yet light, and the glaze wasn’t overly sweet. I was expecting a burst of earl grey flavour as I bit into the donut, but it was rather subtle. Too subtle for my liking. I did, however, like the spinkle of rose petals on the glaze, which added more floral fragrance to the donut.
