Anime & Game Character Inspired Pancake Art

Mmm pancakes, surely half the fun in having them is in the making and decoration of them — those warm cushions of deliciousness!! It is nice knowing that there are others who also share this view, like those working in Japan’s La Ricetta, an Italian restaurant located in the city of Zama in Kanagawa, the prefecture bordering Tokyo to the south, where the pancakes come pre-decorated with images of Pokémon, Mario, and dozens of other anime and video game characters.

At 800 yen (US$6.70) it comes with a scoop of gelato on the side, still allowing customers the opportunity to add their own desired condiment, splat in the middle of all that art.

Talented culinary expert Keesuke Inagaki of Kanagawa’s “La Ricetta Ristorante Pizzeria” has demonstrated a rather unique form of artistry, one which involves shaping anime characters out of fluffy pancakes — a tasteful form of art where even failure can at least ensure that the artist will not be a starving one.

As long as there is enough pancake to sink my teeth into, I am happy with whatever shape and form it takes.


^ It is a universal law that things will get real if there is an odd distribution of pancakes.
