Gram Caf√©'s French Toast Has Strawberries And Ice Cream!
Japan's Gram Cafe & Pancakes has more to offer than just their souffle pancakes.
Just in case you missed it: Japan's Gram Cafe & Pancakes, famous for its souffle pancakes, has finally opened a branch in SM Megamall, its first-ever branch in Manila. Ordering the Premium Souffle Pancakes is a given (just remember there's a fixed schedule for it every day), but this Japanese cafe also serves another really good breakfast staple: the French toast.
What you need to know
Gram Cafe & Pancakes has a Classic French Toast (P300) but it's the Mixed Berries French Toast (P415) that just speaks to our soul. This is made of a classic French brioche toast that's topped with three types of berries: strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, then dusted with confectioners sugar. It's served with whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a tiny pitcher of maple syrup on the side.
What we love about it
Who doesn't love a classic French toast? But if you're a fan of strawberries, you'll love the Mixed Berries French Toast even more. The medley of fresh and juicy berries are a breath of fresh air from the typical jams or fruity syrups you can find everywhere else.¬†
The way we recommend to eat this is to have a little bit of everything with every bite: a bit of the French toast, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, maple syrup, and your choice of berry or all the berries.¬†This reminds us of the classic strawberry and condensed milk combination, but better because it's a heartier dessert because of the brioche bread. Don't worry, the brioche is thick and can handle absorbing a good amount of the whipped cream, ice cream, and the syrup.
Where you can get it
Gram's Mixed Berries French Toast is available at Gram Cafe's Manila branch: 3F SM Fashion Hall, EDSA corner Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.¬†
