Forget fish-shaped cones – New York’s latest food craze is souffle pancakes

Japanese dessert shop Taiyaki, known for its fish-shaped ice-cream cone, has been inundated with customers curious to try its towering, wobbly pancakes

Tightly sandwiched between an art gallery and a beauty salon sits Taiyaki, an ice-cream shop known for their Instagram-famous taiyaki fish-shaped cone. But on a sunny, winter Sunday, other items were drawing more interest – namely, their souffle pancakes. Despite recent reports of hours-long wait, there was no queue to be found outside of the small ice-cream shop. But inside, it was by no means empty. Customer Julio Guzman commented: “It looks a little crowded so it should be good, right?”

It's so fluffy!!! (Despicable Me pun). Should we bring this to Toronto, Miami, and Boston? Currently only available at our Manhattan location Fri-Sundays 11-2pm. Special attention is needed for every pancake! #soufflepancake #taiyakinyc

In collaboration with @DisneyLittleMermaid, @DisneyAnimation, and @AlliedNYC, we are so excited to celebrate the iconic film, The Little Mermaid's 30th anniversary. We have teamed up to create a special "The Little Mermaid" taiyaki-themed ice cream cone. These will NOT be for sale, but on Tuesday February 26, 2019, the first 100 patrons at our Chinatown location will receive a free "The Little Mermaid" cone as well as a poster. It is an honor to work with @DisneyLittleMermaid, @DisneyAnimation, and @AlliedNYC for this occasion and we hope to see everyone Tuesday. Thank you as always for your support and love! #taiyakinyc
