  • Hi Reiko! As always, just wanted to first say how much I still continue to enjoy your posts. I check your blog almost everyday, and you are always inspiring me. Thank you for continuing to create such magical posts on this blog.

    I tried making these pancakes today, and I’m not sure if I did something wrong. They were pretty dense, and also had a strong banana taste. I don’t mind the banana taste, I just didn’t know if that is how they are supposed to be or if I did something wrong.

    Also, my friend moved to Minneapolis recently, and I’m going to be visiting her around Halloween time. I just was wondering if you had any Minneapolis reccommendations, especially with vegan restaurants. I also would love to check out the asian grocery store you always go to and find such cool stuff! Thank you 🙂

    • Hi William,

      Thank you for your kind words as always. I really appreciate it!

      The pancake definitely has some banana taste. I don’t think it’s that strong, personally, but if it seems too much to you, you can add some flavor, like vanilla or almond extract, or cocoa or matcha powder. I’ve tried mango powder a few times, and it turned out delicious! For the texture it shouldn’t be too dense. You may want to add more baking powder or/and use less rice flour. I hope it helps.

      Here are my very personal vegan food recommendations in the Twin Cities….
      -Reverie — All vegan restaurant. Everything I’ve tried has been great except for Benedict.
      -Advellum Vegetable Eatery (in Malcolm Yards Market) — One of my current favorite places. Wild Boomer Burger is delicious! Avocado toast is super fresh and tasty too. Located in Malcolm Yards Market. It’s a great place to go with a group of people (vegans and non-vegans) because they offer a wide variety of food options.
      -The Herbivorous Butcher — A must visit while you are in Mpls! Italian Cold Cut Sandwich is my favorite.
      -Modern Times — A fun place for breakfast/brunch. Hashbrown Rancheros is my favorite.
      -Himalayan Restaurant — Vegetable momos! Ask for extra sauce.
      -Tongue in Cheek (St. Paul) — They have a seasonal dish called “Vegasm”. Their dishes are creative and unique but can be hit-or-miss. I usually call ahead to find out what it is first. They also have several lovely small vegan dishes in their shareable section.
      -Crepe & Spoon — All vegan crepe and ice cream shop. Ube ice cream is one of my favorites.
      -Indian Masala (St. Paul) — I would only recommend vegan buffet. Currently on Wednesday and Thursday of the first week of each month. Not the prettiest place, but it’s fun to try so many vegan dishes for a meal.

      For Asian groceries, United Noodles in Mpls is probably the best one we have here.

      I hope you have a great time when you visit the city!
