(My) Slappy Cakes ~ where it is fine to be SLAPPY: Restaurant Review

  Our first taste of Slappy Cakes was at the Resorts World Singapore.  My boys had fun making their own pancakes, that we were excited to visit the SM Aura branch.
The restaurant theming is standard for Slappy Cakes franchise ~ orange painted ceiling with a bit of modern and industrial feel to it. 
Couch seating gives a bit more privacy (important, when you start making your own pancake)
Table top griddle, for making your own pancakes. Careful as this gets real hot when cooking.
If you are making pancakes, you have the option of ordering separately the batter, fixins, toppings. There were so many choices it became hard to choose!
So we eventually decided on a Pancake Sampler (P350). 
The sampler comes with 3 bottles of 5oz of batter: red velvet, peanut and buttermilk.  For fixins we ordered banana and chocolate chips. Fixins cost about P50 per order.
My son as expected, rushed to making his pancake (he was obviously more excited preparing the pancake, than eating them).   
My little chef in the making (he was so serious too)! 
He did allow me to help in turning the pancakes to the other side.
He eagerly decorated the pancakes and  grinned widely as he served his kuya, his papa and me. 
We also ordered Potato Wedge Salad with mayo dressing topped with bacon bits (P160)

Pop's Pot Roast (P390), slow cooked beef with sautéed vegetables and gravy.
American classic Cheese Burger served with potato wedges (P170)
  1. Slappy Cakes is quite expensive.  But we were fine with it as my son seemed to have enjoyed playing Chef. I will not be surprised, however, if one gives it a pass and just decide to recreate their own Slappy Cakes experience at home.  
  2. With the exclusion of the pancake mixes, which we really liked, I find our other orders a bit bland. I appreciate, though, that they have been adding new meal choices to their menu. 
  3. We would gladly come, but would think twice before ordering anything else other than their pancakes and their other best sellers. 
The Slappy Cakes branch we visited is the one located at the ground floor SM Aura Premier, C5 Road corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
