Two queens stand before me.

The Souffle Pancake craze is far from over— if anything it’s just getting started (and we’re totally here for it). From flavors such as crème brûlée, mixed berries, and even ube, you can bask in the ultra-fluffy goodness of these pancakes in any way you like.

But because 2019 is all about bringing powerful women together, this Taiwanese soufflé pancake purveyor is coming to Metro Manila to put their best foot forward with a familiar and well-loved flavor that’ll make their pancakes nothing short of mind-blowing.

Puffy’s Souffle

Puffy’s Souffle started out in the Shilin Market in Taipei— the biggest and most popular night market in Taiwan known for their variety of street food and desserts. One of their trendiest treats, the Milk Tea Soufflé Pancake topped with tapioca pearls.

It’s a different milk tea fix that’s bigger, better, and fluffier, and you’ll get to try it soon this December at Robinsons Magnolia in Aurora Boulevard. If you need some more options, Puffy’s also serves up Oreo, Crème Brûlée, and Mango!

We still think their Milk Tea Soufflé Pancakes are a definite winner and it’s coming real soon, too! For more information on Puffy’s, check out their Facebook page.

Fun fact: Soufflé is also the past participle of the French verb 'souffler' which means to blow up.

Soufflé originated in the early eighteenth century in France and is a baked dish made from egg yolks and beaten egg whites. To create such a fluffy texture, they use nothing more than air and a precise egg beating method before they put this inside the oven. Other ingredients are often included, such as it can be reinvented and served as a savory dish or a sweet treat.
