Steps

1. In a mixer, blend the egg, sugar, and salt on low speed. The batter should be smooth.
2. Add melted butter, honey, milk, and mirin, mix lightly. Add baking soda and sifted flour until it is all mixed.
3. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. In the meantime, mix sugar and water, and heat slightly until it becomes a syrup.
4. Heat a crepe pan on low heat for about 10 minutes. Using about half a tablespoon of batter to make round pancakes.
5. When the surface looks dry and bubbly, flip over.
6. Brush the fried side with syrup, and then move it to a rack.
7. To prevent from drying, keep the cooked pancakes wrapped.
