Asakusa is popular among foreigners and is famous for Kaminarimon!
There is a very popular pancake in Asakusa!
I went to a popular store that sold out before it opened.
Desperate procession! Get a numbered ticket
This time we visited the cafe “BENITSURU” that opened in Asakusa in the summer of 2017.
It seems that it was originally a café named “Flamingo”, but the predecessor retired and his son took over and opened it under the name “BENITSURU”.
"Flamingo" is "BENITSURU" in Japanese!
It's very good naming.
This is a cafe that has a Japanese style that matches the streets of Asakusa.
The shop is located on the main street, so it is very easy to understand.
... Because the store opened at 10:30, there is a line in front of the store.
At the cafe, because the chef is the owner, about 60 pancakes can be made per day.
Therefore, it is a numbered ticket system.
Reservation cannot be made by phone or online, and a numbered ticket will be distributed from 10:00 on the day before opening.
Everyone will line up in the morning to get a numbered ticket! !
This time I asked about a holiday. We arrived at the store around 9:20 in the morning, but there were already about 20 people.
After that, people came one after another, so the time to get pancakes seemed to change even by a difference of 5 minutes ...
For the reservation, the owner will ask you the number of people and the desired time one by one .
If I ask, "In the earliest time!", 13:30 ...
Even if you can get pancakes in the early afternoon ...
About 2-4 people will be guided every 30 minutes.
Get a numbered ticket, then walk around Asakusa until time.
Finally entering the store
Arrives about 5 minutes before the reservation time and opens the store door.
A woman asked "Hashimoto-sama?" Because it is a reservation system, you can see it right away.
There were about 2 sets in the store.
Since pancakes are baked after they are ordered, it takes time, so we do not allow a large number of people to enter even if seats are available.
There are only counter seats in the store.
There is a chair behind the counter where you can put your luggage.
In addition to simple honey and butter, there are 5 types of pancakes.
It seems that you can also add toppings.
I would like to eat sweet pancakes, but when I came to BENITSURU, I decided to make it a bacon and fried egg pancake.
Pancakes are not only sweet.
In addition, drinks will be discounted by 300 yen when ordering pancakes.
The counter was set up beautifully one by one.
Overall, the inside of the store also has a “Japanese” atmosphere.
Absolutely recommended meal pancake
Depending on the position of the seat, you can see the owner baking in front of you. (I couldn't see it because I was far away)
The baked pancakes are neatly arranged.
Because it was very fluffy, it seemed very hard not to knock it down when carrying it (laughs)
Waiting about 10-15 minutes.
You have come! !
A fried egg is on the fluffy pancake!
The bacon sandwiched between them looks crispy and delicious!
Pancake is a three-tier!
Fried egg is sandwiched between the first and second tiers.
Two fried eggs are luxurious!
From the top, the characteristic cheese sauce.
There is a hidden taste at the bottom, with marmalade jams.
You can add salt and pepper as you like.
Fried egg is half-ripe and delicious.
Pancakes are slightly sweet, but fried eggs and cheese sauce are sour.
Collaboration between the tastes of “sweet” and “not sweet”!
It was delicious and I could eat it!
This pancake is gluten free.
Healthy because it is made of rice flour.
In addition, sugar uses sugarcane, the raw material of sugarcane.
Non-sweet food pancakes. Very recommended.
Because it is a very popular store, it seems that the reservation for the day was also sold out before the opening.
The people next to me were from Nagoya ...
The popularity of pancakes in Japan is likely to continue.
The procession is a high hurdle, but please try it as well, as part of sightseeing in Asakusa! !
