Review: Souffle Dessert Cafe, Bandar Puchong Jaya

Beautiful. Bodacious. Bouncy. Voluptuous. 

 

……

 

I’m talking about souffle pancakes, of course. What were you thinking?

S and I were on the prowl for desserts on a Friday night, and he suggested we check out a new spot called Souffle Dessert Cafe in Bandar Puchong Jaya. Tucked on the second floor of a commercial shoplot, the place specialises in serving souffle pancakes – a delightful cross between a souffle and a pancake which is all the rage now in Japan. Judging by the crowd, the hype has certainly reached Malaysian shores.

Cosy, but enclosed space made it extremely noisy. Not a place to ‘chill’ per se.

What makes a pancake souffle different from regular pancakes?

Well, the batter adds meringue, which gives it a soft, souffle-like texture that is light and airy.

Choose from several types, such as mango, strawberry, chocolate, green tea and more.

S went for the Caramel Banana. Because the pancakes are made to order, expect a waiting time between 20-30 minutes; longer if there’s a big crowd. When the dish was finally presented to our table, we legit went “Oooh” because it was so pretty.

The pancakes were lightly dusted with frosted sugar, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and drizzled over with caramel sauce, served with a side of golden syrup and caramelised banana that glistened under the lights.

The fluffiness of the souffle pancakes was unparalleled – it was like biting into a soft cloud. Everything on the plate came together really well and was not too sweet; an excellent dessert.

We also ordered the Original, which came served with a fat pat of butter for that salty-sweet heavenly combo.

Less dense than regular pancake, much softer and fluffier.

To wash it down: the cafe’s signature ice ball latte; a whole coffee-infused ice ball served with warm milk. That way your drink isn’t diluted by ice and you get the whole flavours.

  • Food: 10/10 souffle pancakes!
  • Ambience: 7/10 – cosy but can be crowded and noisy
  • Price: Above average, expect to be set back RM18-20++ per souffle pancake set
  • Service: Expect a long wait because they prepare the pancakes to order.
