The flour used at Kyushu Pancake Cafe is all produced in Kyushu. The ingredients are sourced from different places: red glutinous rice from Fukuoka, pressed barley germ from Saga, glutinous millet from Nagasaki, purple rice from Kumamoto, non-glutinous rice from Kagoshima, and germinated brown rice from Miyazaki. Cane sugar from Okinawa and Kagoshima are also used. The pancakes contain no additives, aromatic chemicals, emulsifiers, swelling agents, or modified starch. When asking the general manager, Kelvin Tsai, about the reason he opened the store in Taiwan, he gave a very clear answer: “I tried the pancakes in Japan and they tasted great.” He also mentioned his support of “the idea of using good agricultural products from Kyushu and looking after the farmers” as one of the reasons for opening the store in Taiwan.
