1. The concept of the Kawaii Monster Cafewww.fashion-press.netwww.designboom.comwww.designboom.com
This cafe restaurant was designed with the image of Harajuku in mind. The restaurant sits on the tongue of the image character, Mr. Ten Thousand Chopsticks (Choppi, for short). In the store there’s a cake shaped merry-go-round called Sweets Go Round, as well as four zones: Mushroom Disco, Milk Stand, Bar Experiment, and Mel-tea Room. There’s so many things for you to say “kawaii!” about!
2. Main Disheswww.fashion-press.net
The food is also extremely colorful! The colorful Rainbow Pasta (1300 yen) looks like art tools resting on top of a palette! Just wondering what it tastes like already brings excitement!
Of course the desserts are just as colorful! The colorful Poison Cake (2800 yen for a whole, 850 yen for 1/4th) is perfect for parties! They also have parfaits, pancakes, popcorn, and other colorful, fun treats.
They have a cafe menu that has coffees and shakes on them, but they also have the non-alcoholic cocktail Drug Yakou (right photo; 720 yen) as well as the alcoholic cocktails at the bar that include the one on the left, Danger Cocktail. Their original cocktail menu is impressive!
5. The Monster Girlswww.diamond-dining.comwww.designboom.com
You can go meet the Monster Girls that work as the cafe workers, dressed wearing original fashions such as lockets and ribbons created by the fashion blogger Misha Janette.
There is also a shop space where you can buy cute items such as an iPhone case (1300 yen), clearfiles (350 yen), tote bags (2500 yen), and more!
