Walking along the food court while trying to decide on what to eat is like a centipede going in to a shoe store; the choices are just absolutely overwhelming. This is the usual case for me and the ‘Wahine’ every time we are at the food court to dine out. As we continued to debate on where to eat, a whiff of a fragrant aroma too difficult to resist made an end to our discussion. We followed the scent and surprise, surprise – it was coming from the Manoa Pancake House!
Located at the Rycom mall 3rd floor food court, Manoa Pancake House has a chill atmosphere with a nice wooden Hawaiian design counter. The counter staff members actually play along a bit and welcome you Hawaiian style making your dining experience even more relaxed and comfy. They offer a decent food selection where the bacon, sausage, and fried egg, comes as optional side items with their star selection pancakes. Some of the other runner ups are the hamburger steak with fried egg and maybe the mango yogurt for the drink. If you’re asking yourself why make frozen yogurt in to a drink, well, perhaps you should be asking instead why not? Without it just doesn’t complete the Hawaiian island meal experience. In my opinion, frozen yogurt drinks are one of the best thirst quenchers in existence and especially during the summer seasons. As for the superstar – the pancake, they are so fluffy and smooth that they almost seem to melt in your mouth with every bite. Pair it with bacon, sausage, and egg and you may just never leave. On the other hand, the blueberry pancake was only so-so for me but still fulfils its role nicely to satisfy your hunger. Various hot and cold drinks are also available like coffee, lattes, teas, and other several type of juices. Better try them all!
All in all, Manoa Pancake House delivers superb filling meals and good services that will really give you your bang for your buck or rather should I say, Loco for your Moco… Reasonably priced, menus range from 200 to 1000 yen a piece. I would say this one has become one of my go-to places when I am craving for some breakfast or maybe even just a little Ho’omaha time. Definitely coming back for more!
