Hey guys~ If you haven’t had your fill of Character Cafes then you’re in luck!
Right before the Holidays I took a trip with my husband to the Pom Pom Purin Cafe located in the heart of Takeshita St. in Harajuku. We were very fortunate to catch the limited Christmas theme that ran from December 12th until Christmas day! The cafe isn’t hard to find since it’s right above the Sanrio Shop. The wait in line might be long but it’s worth it~
This cafe seems to be permanent so there’s plenty of time to check it out. It’s so adorable I kind of wished I lived there!
They had a great deal for the Christmas season which also came with a free sticker, but sadly I had to pass as I’m not a seafood person.
I got the Coconut Milk Curry hehe definitely not what I expected but still fun to try~ The Beef Stroganoff on the other hand was pretty yummy! Each item on the menu with a cup icon next to it came with a tiny Pom Pom Purin cup.
You could spend ages looking at everything in that cafe but it does get a little embarrassing hovering around people’s tables to gawk at the decorations.
The store was selling exclusive Christmas stuff only available at that time, I loved the clothes but they were all one size (which was too tiny) but the normal clothing has multiple sizes. I decided to get the Pom Pom Purin Cafe bag with him in the Cup. I thought it was cool to have something that had the name of the Cafe on it! This cafe (like most character cafes) was a bit pricey and the food isn’t the best but you pay for the atmosphere with these kind of things and I’d highly recommend going because it was so much fun! A memory I’ll always treasure, I hope to go back someday soon. Did you know Pom is a Golden Retriever?
