Step into the world of Korean comfort food at No.1 Pancake, where tradition meets modernity in every crispy bite. Join me as I unravel the history and flavours behind this iconic pancake haven, nestled in the heart of Takapuna.

No.1 Pancake’s journey began in 2010, when Sung Kwon and Abigail Lim embarked on a mission to create delicious yet affordable pancakes for the bustling streets of Auckland CBD. With unwavering dedication, they crafted a menu that captured the hearts of university students and office workers alike, earning a loyal following over the years.

Despite facing challenges during the pandemic, Sung Kwon and Abigail Lim persevered, relocating their beloved shop to Rosedale and later to Takapuna. Today, No.1 Pancake continues to delight customers with its irresistible sweet and savory treats, each bite a testament to the owners’ passion for quality and authenticity.

From traditional Korean pancakes filled with beef, chicken, or vegetables to sweet delights like chocolate and cinnamon, No.1 Pancake offers a diverse range of flavours to satisfy every craving. The Potato and Cheese Pancake reigns supreme as the top seller, a delectable combination of indulgence and satisfaction.

During my recent visit to the Takapuna branch, I revisited old favourites like the Ham Cheese (NZ$8.90) and Red Bean (NZ$6.00) pancakes. Despite the change in location, the taste and quality remained consistently delicious, a testament to the enduring legacy of No.1 Pancake.

Whether enjoyed by the beach or on a nearby bench, No.1 Pancake offers more than just a meal – it’s an experience to be savoured. While parking may pose a challenge, the culinary delights that await make it all worthwhile.

  1. You know, I have to admit that I don’t know much about Korean pancakes. I love the idea of hiding savory fillings inside of a pancake though! I wish this restaurant was located near me – yum!!
