Fuwa Fuwa: The pancake chain is opening a new store in Edmonton next month
Fuwa Fuwa, a Japanese pancake restaurant that just opened its first restaurant at YEG, will soon be opening a second store in Edmonton.
It took a long time for Edmonton’s first location at 8103 – 104th Street NW, but it’s finally here. The second spot will be here next month, opening Saturday, July 16, in the community of Windermere.
These soft and airy pancakes are bouncy and light with fillings that include fresh fruit, decadent chocolate, homemade cream cheeses, and more.
The name means “soft fluffy” in Japanese, and the pancakes here are some of the fluffiest you’ll ever try.
The pancakes here are made by whipping egg whites into soft peaks, which gives them their airy soufflé-like quality. Also like a soufflé, they are cooked slowly at a low temperature.
It’s a delicate process that combines traditional soufflé and pancake cooking techniques, creating a one-of-a-kind item that Edmonton will lose.
The signature crepe is served with strawberries, blueberries and bananas, but there are also creations like tiramisu, crème brûlée and matcha and red bean crepes.
Pancakes are the way to go here, but there are also extravagant waffle dishes, macaroons, rolls, pancakes, cookies, and even burnt cheesecake.
This is very exciting news for pancake lovers in Edmonton. Just a year ago there were only locations in Ontario, and now there will be two in Edmonton.
Check out this hip new breakfast spot on its opening weekend and find out what it’s all about.
