In Japan, there is a cafe dedicated to the world famous children’s story “Moomin”, which originated from Finland. At three Moomin Cafe branches, a special event called “PANNUKAKKU tabeyou, pancake fair” will run from Wednesday 20th March to Sunday 12th May.
“PANNUKAKKU” is the word for “pancake” in Finnish. Pancakes are a popular dish in Northern Europe and are even eaten at home. They often appear in Moomin stories.
Of course, the Moomin Cafe sells pancakes. Besides the standard “Moomin House Pancakes”, there are three varieties of original pancakes that will be on the menu for a limited period only. Examples of the limited edition pancake toppings include fresh fruits. There is also a salmon topping which is very typical for Northern Europe!!
