Pom Pom Purin Cafe in Harajuku

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of my favourite things to do during my trip was to go out in search of cute food all over Tokyo. So it made sense to visit the Pom Pom Purin Cafe, which is right in the middle of the trendy Takeshita-dori in Harajukukirakira

Pom Pom Purin (or just Purin) is a beret-wearing golden retriever and one of the Sanrio characters. He’s popular enough to get his own cafe with countless teenage girls queueing for an hour just to get in (I guess that includes me).

If you want to eat at the cafe, you need to get a queue ticket in advance (which runs out fast) and come back at the indicated time. And even when you return to start queueing, you still have to wait for a long time—I was in line for about an hourhurhurWhich goes to show my remarkable patience and also how easily won over I am by cute gimmicks.

Once I was near the entrance they started showing us the menu so we could pick what we wanted to eat! This was the tricky part because everything just screams EAT ME I’M KAWAII at you.

And so I finally arrived at the entrance in all its Pompompurin glory.

The inside is decorated with Purin and his friends everywhereheartIt’s like a diner, but a cute one. The place is all warm and cosy and Purin-yellow everywhere. I don’t think my blog has ever looked so yellow, thanks to all these pictures.

If you look around you’re likely to see someone taking a selfiesmileMost of the girls around me were doing that while waiting for their food.

My friend and I ordered the taco rice, which has Purin (made of rice) sitting in a cup with his friend Muffin (made of cream cheese) sitting on his mushroom beret. It was a big portion so we shared itsmileAn ear each, a paw each, and so on.

Dessert was this happy parfait! Naturally, Purin is the pudding. The beret is a chocolate biscuit, and the rest of the parfait has ice cream, whipped cream and juicy mango sliceslove girlAnd below all that there’s still a huge pile of sponge cake sandwiched between layers of cream and syrup. I know it looks alarmingly sweet, but I liked it.

After finishing the meal I looked around the shop corner, which had all the standard merchandise from keychains to stationery to little boxes of ridiculously cute bandages.

They were cute! But I didn’t buy anything because I’d already spent my money on lunchgirl

Before you go out, don’t forget to take a picture with the big mascots in the centre of the cafe! The staff (all incredibly kind and adorable in their Pompompurin-themed uniforms) will help you take a picture, when you ask any of them who’s not busy serving foodgirl love

So if you like themed cafes or cute cafes or even better, Pom Pom Purin himself, make sure you visit this place once! It’s on the third level of Cute Cube, a building along the busy Takeshita-dori.
