Back in Hawai'i whenever a friend would come visit, there would most likely be a stop by Yogurstory to try their Ube Pancakes (Image below for referrence). They were arguably the first place to offer the vibrant purple yams in this fashion. This recipe is an ode to that experience from back home. Sadly, we don't have a great recipe to mimic the Ube halaya syrup they have, but we are working on it (I asked the owner a while back, but aunty keeps that secret locked tight).
