fluffstack: Fluffy Soufflé Pancakes From S$8.80 With Gula Melaka Boba Toppings + Mango Passion Fruit At Suntec

Last Updated: September 14, 2019

There’s nothing more Instagrammable than a stack of fluffy pancakes that jiggle, wobble and shake when you nudge your plate. Combine them with the second-most Instagrammable food item—bubble tea—and you might just break the Internet. Just maybe. *winks*

Introducing to you the newest pancake shop on the block: fluffstack. This quaint cafe is located at Suntec City and serves up fluffy soufflé pancakes with a variety of toppings, like gula melaka boba pearls, mango and passion fruit compote, strawberry coulis, and raspberry dust with chantilly cream from S$8.80.

fluffstack is part of Suntec City’s newest F&B section, which is located at the basement of its West Atrium. There’s a bunch of other F&B stalls there, such as The Salted Plum and 108 MATCHA SARO.

To get to the area, head towards the West Atrium’s first floor and spot the junction that has Krispy Kreme, Typo and the famous Suntec money changer, and take the escalator down. For those familiar with Suntec, it’s exactly where Tony Romas used to be.

This cosy 40-seater cafe is decked out in white and pink decor but due to the limited space, the tables were placed rather close to one another. During peak hour, you might find yourself squished against another pair of diners—not exactly a very comfortable experience!

From taking your own utensils and napkins to collecting your pancakes when your order number is flashed up on a screen, everything here at fluffstack operates on a self-service system.

Upon ordering, I was told that my pancakes would take 10 to 15 minutes to be ready. That’s because all its pancakes are made fresh upon order—something I was really pleased to hear—and you can even watch the servers in action behind a glass screen.

fluffstack’s pancakes are different from regular pancakes because it’s a soufflé pancake. That means that the egg whites and egg yolks are separated, and the egg whites are beaten until it forms stiff peaks. The meringue is then carefully folded into the pancake batter, so the end product is an airy and fluffy pancake.

fluffstack only sells five pancakes: Classic Soufflé Pancakes (S$8.80), Oolong Boba Soufflé Pancakes (S$9.80), Strawberry Cheese Soufflé Pancakes (S$12.80), Hazelnut Chocolate Soufflé Pancakes (S$13.80) and Mango Passion Fruit Soufflé Pancakes (S$14.80).

The Classic Soufflé Pancakes (S$8.8o) came with two soufflé pancakes stacked on top of each other, and it’s served with honey butter, maple syrup and chantilly cream.

The maple syrup was placed separately, so for those who aren’t a fan of sticky sweet sauces, you can choose to go without it.

Were they fluffy? Yes. However, the soufflé pancakes were denser than I expected, with a texture that reminded me of thick whipped cream rather than fluffy cotton wool.

I suspect this was because they added more egg yolks into the batter than other soufflé pancake cafes, as I could taste the distinctive custard-like sweetness from the egg yolk the minute I took a bite out of my soufflé pancakes.

I really liked the balance of flavours in the Classic Soufflé Pancakes—there was that caramel sweetness from the maple syrup and the chantilly cream was savoury and salty.

The Oolong Boba Soufflé Pancakes (S$9.80) came with gula melaka boba and oolong crème anglaise.

As a sworn bubble tea lover, this soufflé pancake was definitely one of my favourites. The oolong crème anglaise was light and fragrant and the roasted taste of the oolong tea really came through very well.

The gula melaka pearls were springy and chewy, and thankfully it wasn’t too sweet, so the entire dish didn’t end up being overly jelak.

The Mango Passion Fruit Soufflé Pancakes (S$14.80) was served with passion fruit compote, honey mango, coconut sago and chantilly cream.

I was really impressed that fluffstack served an entire slice of mango (which was thoughtfully sliced) alongside the double-stacked soufflé pancakes.

I loved the passion fruit compote, which wasn’t overly sour but tangy and sweet. Above all, I really appreciated how everything on this dish—the tropical coconut sago, the refreshing and sweet mango, and the piquant passion fruit—was designed to cut through the thickness of the soufflé pancakes.

All these refreshing bits made it even easier for me to polish my entire plate—not that I wasn’t going to, mind you.


After my dining companions and I polished off all three soufflé pancake dishes, I sat there mildly amused at how we managed to down it all. Then, it came to me: the soufflé pancakes themselves weren’t overly sweet, airy or dense, so the supporting flavours on each dish came through brilliantly. As a result, we could finishthree different dishes from fluffstack and not realise that we had actually just eaten the same double-stacked soufflé pancakes three times, just with different toppings. What magic!

Though I’ve got to say, I would have liked it if the pancakes were a teeeeeny bit fluffier. Plus, for S$8.80 to S$14.80 per plate, I’m not that sure it’s really worth the price.

Expected Damage: S$8.80 – S$14.80 per dish
