After first seeing the massive queue for Eggs & Things in Omotesando, Tokyo in 2013 I finally tried it for myself.
There is always always a queue for Eggs & Things in Shinsaibashi, I can never understand it! We even saw a branch in Kobe and thought, oh the queues not bad, not realising it continued 30 people deep around the corner.
So we were so surprised on a rainy Thursday afternoon (about 5pm) that there was no queue of any kind! Gobsmacked we were led to a free table.
J and I both ordered pancakes, I got coconut, and he chose banana and nuts, J also got a lemon and ginger hot drink.
They were probably the best pancakes I ever tasted, thick, light and fluffy, better than the ones at Elk their local rival.
At first I couldn’t taste the coconut in my pancakes but when I tried Js original ones his were very sweet and buttery compared to mine.
5 pancakes were far too many, but for ¥850 for mine it was good value. I asked if I could take my left overs away but they said no sorry. So we stuffed ourselves trying to finish them.
On the table we had three pancake syrups – maple, coconut and guava. All were delicious.
I would go again if I didn’t have to wait, as delicious as they are they aren’t worth waiting 2 hours for! Also I’d share a with a friend, 5 pancakes were too many.
