Sharing is caring!

In Tokyo, Japan, it not uncommon to seek out Japanese pancakes – known for being fluffy and even soufflé-like. However, the one pancake place that we must-visit when in Tokyo is not even from Japan. It is Eggs ‘n Things, a pancake and breakfast item restaurant that originated in Hawaii. Best of all, Eggs ‘n Things now has an Eggs ‘n Things outlet in Singapore at Plaza Singapura.

Breakfast Goodness

Established in 1974, Eggs ‘n Things originated in Waikiki, Hawaii. In Japan, it has 19 outlets, mostly in Tokyo but in cities such as Osaka and Kyoto too.

Eggs ‘n Things outlets have relaxed, beachy ambiance with wooden panel (like a beach hut) and service staff dress with flora, Hawaiian shirts.

On the menu are all-day breakfast type items. We would broadly divide them into two categories – eggs and pancakes.

Or course, it is a bit more complicated than that. When it comes to eggs, the restaurant does it up in plenty of different ways.

Eggs 'n Things MenuThere are Meat & Eggs, which include pretty substantial dishes such as Beef Steak & Eggs (1,580 yen), Portuguese Sausage & Eggs (1,130 yen) and more. The selection of omelettes range from a vegetarian omelette to a Spinach, Bacon and Cheese omelette. Of course, no menu would be complete without Eggs Benedict and Eggs ‘n Things has 10 variations of Eggs Benedict available.

Japanese Pancakes, Not Originally from Japan

When it comes to pancakes, you will be spoilt for choice with fruit-topped pancakes and others with macadamia nuts, chocolate chips and even coconut.

Besides pancakes, other breakfast options include crepes and waffles.

Pancakes at Eggs 'n ThingsThe pancakes at Eggs ‘n Things in Japan are extremely light and fluffy. If ordered with whipped cream, the cream comes stacked up gloriously high.

Pouring syrupAt the table are three types of syrups that you can use to dress the pancakes – maple, coconut and pink guava.

Corned Beef Hash and Eggs, Eggs n ThingsThe egg dishes are extremely addictive too. We especially enjoyed the Corned Beef Hash & Eggs.

Take note that Meats & Eggs and Omelette dishes include a side dish of rice, toast or potatoes. You can also upgrade the side dish to three pancakes for a top-up of 400 yen.
