When all else fails and then there's traffic...however, there are pancakes to get us through.
The car sat still on a heavy traffic one afternoon at Jupiter, Makati. A thought came to my mind, after seeing the kids dead bored and slowly transforming into two girly "grinches," I remembered when they were still little, the scent of pancakes being cooked would make their difficult situations into something worth undertaking after. So after undergoing a series of payments for the bi-annual obligations of SSS, Philhealth, etc...we found ourselves (that's me, hubby and the two girls) on a traffic dead-end, thus, we thought of stopping over at SM Jazz.
What glee when my kids found Slappy Cakes. "See what pancakes can do," as I told my husband.
For now I consider them experts in making their own at home, so I figured what if we do it at Slappy Cakes this time. I knew they wouldn't disagree.
What my two girls like about the place is that the staff were kind and very warm in welcoming us and they knew already, these girls were in for some pancake-lovin' and choosing their kind of pancake batter was in itself fun!
Our clear table started getting busy by the moment as condiments, silverwares and plates have been being set up. The girls even got more excited when the trimmings for pancakes were placed.
Hmm...I'm starting to like the staff not only for her courteousness but for the fast and efficient service. There were hardly anyone dining that day so I figured...
DIY pancakes (was a hit when they started opening up their first branch, but up until now, we didn't get the idea of using bottle dispensers for the pancake batter. Of course, I find it brilliant. We're old school, at home we still use a laddle to scoop up the batter to the pan.
From four different kinds of batter: buttermilk, chocolate, peanut butter and red velvet, they ordered buttermilk (P 225) and red velvet (P 260).
Parents, make sure that the kids are warned about the heated grillpan in the middle is hot and that kids are always guided when they cook their pancakes.
By being safe, this experience will turn out to be a memorable one for you and your kids. Like it did mine.
The 8 oz. batter mix is enough for two kids, thus we had a heavy pancake grubbing afternoon sesh.
The girls paired their pancakes with a glass each of vanilla milkshakes (P 180). Happy kids they turned out in spite of the dreaded traffic an countless times of waiting in the car.
Aside from the pancakes they have savories too and good plated meals. Do check out my review of Slappy Cakes SM Aura, when I had the chance to try out their new offerings.
My husband got himself Cheese Burger (P170). For a huge serving of burger and potato wedges, the price was such a steal. I love how they use grated cheddar instead of the typical thin slice of cheese. It made cheese burger so well pronounced with the hefty cheese topped on the juicy beef patty that was grilled to tender. It was hard to bite on to, which was a good problem. It was also nice for them to out cooked onion instead of the fresh one, else my husband could have them removed.
The cozy and homey place, comfy seats and nice lighting makes this place a go-to place for fun family dining.
