Frying pan ready and Slappy Cakes at the Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika) is with no doubt the place that is most fun to flip those pancakes. And not any ordinary pancakes, the hip and cute type everyone would enjoy. When enjoying pancakes, it is important that they are made to order and you get them fresh here at the Slappy Cakes because you get to cook your pancakes at your very own table.
Ordering is easy, they have the daily prep batter made from scratch in different flavours and to make step two a lot more fun, the batter is filled inside squeeze bottles. That makes step two real fun when you get to draw your pancakes. Instructions are given to for those who has no idea how to cook a pancake, and the cue to flip is when once they pop and when you see the bubbles forming at the edges of the pancakes.
For anyone who makes pancake a lot, seeing those bubbles means you have got the batter mix correctly and that consistent bubbles are what’s making the pancakes fluffy. Both Buttermilk and Chocolate that we had was unfailingly downy.
Those squeeze bottles are great to shape your pancakes and I tried drawing myself on the pan and it looked like a horrible looking voodoo doll (I need to practice more on this one).
Let’s face it, plain pancakes can be boring. Thankfully, they have aplenty of add-ons to sparkle up the plain old pancake. There are sweet condiments, nuts, savoury ones, and a lot of topping choices. Here is apples, bacon, and walnut and I couldn’t be happier to see my apple freshly cut and not oxidized. Here is a tip: pick a topping that gives you the extra moist cause I didn’t enjoy their peanut butter jam. Adding nuts onto the pancake is not a very brilliant idea.
Housemade Lemonade is selling at RM 8 and is a clever beverage on top of none other than the brew of coffees and teas. There is milk shakes as well, putting this as a really friendly place for children.
There are a lot more than just pancakes on the menu; all day breakfasts, salads, eggs benedicts, a couple of entrees and most importantly, the pancakes from their kitchen if you choose to not flip them over the grill at your table. But I can assure you, bonding over food can never get anymore interesting and fun than this one.

Did you know? There is a Pancake Day we can all celebrate and the Pancake Day takes place 47 days before Easter Sunday. Because the date of Easter Sunday is dictated by the cycles of the moon, Pancake Day can occur anytime between February 3 and March 9. Of course here at Slappy Cakes, every day is a Pancake Day.
