J.S. PANCAKE CAFE, which is owned by the apparel brand JOURNAL STANDARD, is currently collaborating with the internationally beloved children’s picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
The collaboration is running for four months. It began in October and will end in January next year. Each month they serve sweet pancakes that depict the tale of the caterpillar in the story as he grows. The new menu for December features food with an autumn twist and elements perfect for the holiday season.
Fat Caterpillar & Chrysalis Mont Blanc Pancake: ¥1,500 (Dec 1 – Dec 19)
The mont blanc pancake features the fat caterpillar and its chrysalis. It’s made with chestnut cream, chocolate, cocoa powder and soy flour, bringing to life the colourful and vivid world of Eric Carle. It’s finished with a pumpkin purin for those autumn vibes.
Fruit & Berry Butterfly Pancake: ¥1,600 (Dec 20 – Jan 31 / *Except Jan 1-3)
The hungry caterpillar finally became a butterfly with this pancake. The pancake batter is made with beets and spinach and plated with 5 different fruits.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pancake: ¥2,300 (Dec 1 – Jan 31 / *Except Jan 1-3)
This second version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Pancake is served with cheese fondue. The caterpillar itself is made from spinach pancakes and surrounded by colourful vegetables.
Also coming to the cafes next month is a line-up of original merchandise including caterpillar and butterfly smartphone rings.
If you’re in Japan during the holiday season be sure to hit up J.S. PANCAKE CAFE for the next addition to The Very Hunger Caterpillar’s pancake tale!
