Hoshino Coffee – Japanese Coffee Delectable Desserts
Hoshino Coffee is the perfect introduction to Japanese Coffee, Yōshoku – Foreign (Western) food, delectable Japanese Desserts, and Sweet Treats.
In Japan, many western dishes have been adapted to Japanese taste and are now part of any Japanese family menu.
Many Yōshoku dishes are served alongside rice and miso soup and eaten with chopsticks.
What is Hoshino Coffee?

Before we entered the shop, Belle and I have decided what to have for our lunch.
Left on my own, the order is simple – I will always order the Japanese Milk Coffee with either.
- French Toast
- Souffle Pancake
Hoshino Coffee Interior is Elegant
The cafe’s interior is classy and cozy – entirely decked in an eclectic European decor complete with low hanging chandeliers mini chandelier and leather couches.
The dark brown theme and warm lighting are relaxing.
The relaxing aroma of roasted coffee beans filled the entire restaurant.
Little Kitchen Goddess Belle and I were seated next to the coffee machines -, we are sure you wouldn’t want to leave the place too soon.
Hoshino Coffee Food Menu
The food is quality Japanese-Western fusion food.
The menu is not extensive but is sufficient.
Signature Dishes are little gems that keep us going back.
- French Toast
- Pancake Soufflé (RM6.38)
- Japanese Milk Coffee (RM11.29)
- Iced Fruit Coffee (RM8.06)
- Chocolate Soufflé (RM13.62)
The signature Hoshino Blend Coffee – my favorite is perfect for the caffeine lover.
The Coffee’s aroma was fragrant; the taste was smooth, with a slightly bitter note.
The Iced Fruit Coffee has generous slices of oranges giving it a sweet and slightly tangy taste.
If you fancy something refreshing and fruity, try this out!
For the Mains
As for the main course, Belle ordered Omu Rice Chicken Teriyaki (RM20.40)
I already had my favorite Sub (most satisfying) while waiting for her.
I would have fancied the complicated Pot Curry Rice topped with baked curry, cheese, a poached egg, cheese-filled sausages, and tender chicken cubes.
Japanese Pancake Soufflé
The pancakes from Japan’s Hoshino Cafe are legendary.
These gorgeous pancakes are less fiddly and temperamental than a souffle.
If you have made a sponge cake, you’ll find these beautifully light pancakes your go-to meal for a decadent brunch.
And they’re just made for maple syrup and cream!
These super thick fluffy Japanese pancakes, Fuwa Fuwa, is spreading happiness and smiles.
I adore pancakes and love American multinational pancake house IHOP for their breakfast.
So, I adore these inch high pillowy soft light airy pancakes.
The soufflé was known to be soft and fluffy, freshly baked upon order, requiring a *minimum of 20 minutes waiting time.
We ordered this with whipped butter (so tiny ball of butter – I complained bitterly) and maple syrup.
Pancakes put smiles on my face and brighten up my day instantly.
Fuwa Fuwa means “fluffy fluffy” in Japanese, and that is the feeling you’ll get when you’re having pancakes at Hoshino Coffee.
Looks so pretty and jiggly but taste-wise, it is quite ordinary.
I still prefer IHOP as a matter of personal preference.
French Toast came in two thick slices of toasts (cooked with butter and egg) topped with whipped cream.
The first time I had this, I thought it was an unusual ice cream ball that held its form well as we took photographs.
*Vanilla Soufflé with Chocolate/Custard/Matcha sauce
Belle wanted to try the Matcha, but somehow green tea and I don’t get along. So, we settled for the Chocolate sauce.
The Soufflé arrived covered with cocoa powder and icing sugar.
The instruction from the waiter was to stir the Chocolate sauce in and eat it.
How to eat Soufflé?
One key to eating a souffle is to start eating it before it falls.
It’s essential to have all condiments, sauces or accompaniments for the souffle on hand and everything ready – before the souffle comes out of the oven.
In Hoshino Coffee, the Soufflé is served in individual ramekins, which makes eating a matter of plunging a spoon directly into the Soufflé.
A spoon is an essential utensil; however, some prefer to keep a fork handy to push on the soufflé on the spoon.
It depends on how fussy you are.
The top part of the souffle was sieved with icing sugar and chocolate powder.
We poured the chocolate sauce on top of the souffle and left some for the custard at the bottom.
The custard under it was smooth and creamy, and it melted perfectly in the mouth.
I want to devour it before the entire souffle falls.
Whatever you do, please don’t mix everything!
The instruction from the waiter was unusual – mix everything up.
A soufflé is the pinnacle of egg dishes.
Getting it to rise is like coaxing life into a thick whipped cream and egg mixture.
Almost impossible – that is why I would never bake a soufflé.
It is just too hard.
When I eat it alone, I eat the top half. I like the sweet, airy omelet taste of baked cheese.
When everything is mixed in, it’s like eating gooey chocolatey sweet hot steamed egg custard.
All the desserts are big in portion and are suitable for sharing.
Again, this depends on how hungry you are.
Hoshino Coffee Review
Hoshino is a delightful Family-friendly restaurant with a relaxing environment with a combination of comfortable settings.
