The origin of the name Tokyo Pancake is not clear. It is believed to have begun when commerce between Thailand and Japan was booming in 1964. Japanese sweet desserts flowed in together with Japanese goods. There are many kinds of dessert that consists of similar pastry sheet like a pancake in Japan. Most are only one pastry sheet that's folded or rolled. Then it is stuffed with red beans, or taro paste inside.
Later, Thais liked this dessert and made their own version. It was named Tokyo Pancake after the capital of Japan. In the beginning, Cream Custard may have been used to replace the red beans for Thai tastes. Later, people started to put in sausage and quail eggs, then become a Thailand's Tokyo dessert today.
