The shop "SONJIN" at Yokohama Municipal Subway Center-Kita Station. The pancake is 5 centimeters thick! But is this rumor true? If you go all the way to "SONJIN" and say "it was a lie", the damage will be great. But I'm curious ...
… And if you're curious, the En-eating editorial department is the place to go. I went to the center north to measure the thickness of the pancakes! 5 cm is really amazing, isn't it?
■ Arrive at Center-Kita Station!
You can see the Ferris wheel on the roof of the shopping mall in front of the station at Center-Kita Station. Walk around the station toward the bus terminal and walk down the narrow alley while looking at the TOYOTA rental car on your right ... Oh, there was! It's "SONJIN"!
■ Arrived at "SONJIN"! -Is it true that it takes 30 minutes to bake a 5 cm pancake?
You can eat pancakes at "SONJIN" from the tea term business at 14:30 . Apparently, rumors of huge pancakes are spreading locally, and there are people who look into the menu outside while waiting for the store to open. And besides me, about 5 women are waiting for the store to open. This is promising!
"SONJIN" pancakes take 30 minutes to bake after receiving an order. It seems that it takes time to bake a 5 cm pancake. To verify that this rumor is also true, let's measure the time from order to arrival with a stopwatch. Before the store opened, the master came to pick up the order with a menu, so I started measuring from there.
When ordering pancakes, it seems that you need to order drinks as a set. Select milk here. Pancakes can be topped with fresh cream in addition to plain. And it seems that you can also combine meals and sweets.
The store opened at 14:30. The interior is quite fashionable with white walls and wood grain. The table is separated by a wall. It is understandable that there are many female customers per person in a cozy space.
■ Pancakes are now available
Wait for a while, finally! Pancakes have been brought in.
The pancake that appeared in front of you is a form that renews the image of pancakes! It looks like you've jumped out of the manga world! Now, let's measure the thickness. Measure with the prepared ruler. Is the rumor that "thickness 5 cm" really true? ??
It's just 5 centimeters without any deviation. The rumors were true!
5 cm means, for example, about 6 iPhone 5s with a thickness of 7.6 mm. If you have a lot of iPhones rolling around, please try stacking 6 of them. SONJIN pancakes are even thicker than that.
For those who still can't get it right, let's compare it with Tokyo Dome. The height of the Tokyo Dome is 56.19 meters. SONJIN's pancakes are equivalent to 0.00088 Tokyo Dome. Is it amazing?
■ What is the taste?
When I cut it with a knife, the blade comes into the surface and then it falls down to the bottom with almost no response. What the hell is this feeling! ?? A bite of melted butter and syrup ... fluffy! And it melts in your mouth! Indeed, the true identity of this thickness was the result of making the dough extremely fluffy.
Since it is 5 cm long, you have to cut it into small pieces and eat it, but it is recommended that you open the mouth as much as possible and enjoy the texture of the fluffy dough. The included melted butter and syrup have no stubbornness and you can enjoy the sweetness that you will never get tired of.
Some people may say, "It's a lot and I'm worried if I can eat it alone ...", but since it's fluffy and contains a lot of air, I think it's surprisingly easy to get rid of.
■ By the way, how long is the waiting time?
By the time we finished eating, the number of customers, such as two high school girls, increased, and it was almost full. It seems to be especially popular with young women. However, it seems that he is still vacant today. It seems that it takes about 30 minutes to bake pancakes when it is crowded, so it is recommended that you come to the store with plenty of time. It's definitely worth a visit, even if it's a little far away! Thanks to SONJIN for making my childhood dreams come true!
By the way, it took about 20 minutes to bake the pancakes on this day!
