Cute food at the AKB48 Cafe in Akihabara

AKB48 Cafe & Shop

I went to the AKB48 Cafe & Shop in Akihabara! You might already know about AKB—that girl group with over a hundred members and their own theatre in Akiba? A few years ago I used to be a big fan (when they actually had only 48 members and not a whole choir).

I liked them so much I even went for the events they used to hold in Singapore. This was when I met Sashihara Rino in 2011nekoBack then she was still only the ninth most popular member. Who knew one day she’d become AKB’s number one? (And later HKT48’s manager, but that’s another story)

Back on topic. My friend and I visited the AKB48 Cafe for dinner and it kind of brought back some memories of those years!

The cafe menu is themed after several of the members, with dishes modelled by them. I got Watanabe Mayu’s Favourite Fried Chicken with Muchichi! That’s the rabbit in the middle (a character she’s always drawing). And Mayuyu was my oshimensmileI might not follow AKB48 anymore but I’ll still buy my favourite member’s dish haha.

Gude-mina—a limited season katsudon with Gudetama lying on top of crispy pork cutlet and rice. Wearing a big ribbon like Takahashi Minami too, since she’s the one who produced this collaboration dish with Sanrio.

We ended off with Yukirin-daruma Daifuku! It’s basically Yukirin-daruma surrounded by lots of fruits and mochi. Simple and light enough to enjoy after a full mealgood

Since we topped up our meal with the drink bar too, we got free drink coasters! The only thing is that unless you are a serious follower of AKB you will likely not recognise the members you actually get on your coasters (I did not know who any of these girls were except Takamina). But well, a gift’s a gifthurhur

Even if you’re not a fan though, the AKB48 Cafe’s still a nice place to have a meal at! There are TV screens on the walls playing concert DVDs and lots of Japanese fans sitting at the tables eating and exchanging goods with each other, so it gets pretty festive here.

It’s right outside the Akihabara JR station, so you should give this place a trykirakiraI wasn’t sure at first if I’d be interested in coming here, but it was a lot more fun than I expected! They have a shop corner that sells member goods right next to the cafe too, which is convenient if you end up becoming a fan over the course of your dinner.
