I was walking around Resorts World at Sentosa and stumbled upon this place!
Slappy Cakes opened at the resort on 20th December 2013. Originating from Portand, Oregon, USA, this eatery is known for its “Make Your Own” pancake concept, where diners choose their own batter and ingredients, then make them into pancakes of whatever size and shapes they like, on built-in griddles at their tables. All-day American breakfast sets are also served here.
Sauces, a coconut milk syrup and a mixture of corn & maple syrups are available at the table. If you prefer having pure maple syrup or honey on your pancakes, check out the “Toppings” section on the menu.
It’s not everyday that you can have fun with your food – unleash your creative side by making your own pancakes!
Here’s a look at the griddle…
We weren’t sure if ordering two servings of pancake batter would be too much for the two of us so we started off by ordering one serving of buttermilk pancake batter ($8.50), with pork sausage ($3) and roasted mushrooms ($2).
How do you cook the pancakes? Squeeze some pancake batter onto the griddle and add any of the additional ingredients that you have ordered to go with it. When the batter starts to bubble, it’s about time to flip it over. If you prefer your pancakes to be a little browner, then let it sit there for a while before flipping.
Here were some of our creations (don’t laugh!)…
Even the little boy who was seated at the next table, was so intrigued by our strange pancake shapes that he kept standing up and looking over at what we had cooking on our griddle. My hubby and I were chuckling throughout the entire meal!
Eventually, we felt that one serving wasn’t enough, so we added on an order of peanut butter pancake batter ($8.50), with bananas ($1.50) and crispy bacon ($2). However, I was too busy playing…erm, I meant to say cooking…that I forgot to snap a picture so this is the only one I have of it:
**UPDATE** 22nd February 2014 **
We decided to try our hand at pancakes again with certain designs in mind, so this time we ordered Buttermilk and Chocolate batter, with toasted almonds, strawberries, honey ham and roasted mushrooms for toppings.
These were some of the pancakes that I made this time around…
A little kid passing my table stopped excitedly and said “Hello Kitty!”. Err…well…he was right although my pancake wasn’t quite of the correct proportion (i.e. a more “prosperous” looking kitty) but at least it seemed to be recognisable! LOL…
I must say that the results of my second attempt at freehand pancake making looked much better than those that I had made during my first visit. What do you think? :p
If you don’t feel like having pancakes, you can try their all day breakfast instead (which is already cooked for you so you don’t have to use the griddle).
All-Day Breakfast Menu:
Mushroom Scramble ($15) – The potato was interesting as it had a dry, slightly crisp outer layer with its inside still soft but still solid potato. The scrambled eggs had a nice buttery fragrance and the bread had a lovely sweet taste. There were 2 types of mushrooms in this, which was similar to the roasted mushrooms which you can order from the pancake menu.
Slappy Lemonade ($4.30) – This drink was quite nice and refreshing, with a citrusy fragrance that wasn’t too sour.
Lemon Sorbetti ($4) – Hot teas are served in a teapot and it can fill about 2-3 cups.
The food is quite nice and cooking your own pancakes can be fun for the family! Parents can keep their kids entertained and it provides a good opportunity to bond with them. It’s great for outings with friends too! Those who don’t have kids can still have fun and unleash the big kid in you…I mean unleash your creative side. 😉
