Japan has so many cute and "weird" things that happening all the time. I fall in love with this egg character since the first time I saw him. Gudetama is an egg character created by Sanrio. He is famous for acting lazy all the time. Also because of he is an egg, so his favourite food is soy sauce. As I love his so much, when I noticed there is a Gudetama Cafe opened in Seibu Ikebukuro, I went there straight away.
The food actually tastes good as I was imaging it would be, and the amount is huge, I feel so full after the main dish. But I still ordered a latte with chocolate cream on the top. I mainly just want to take pictures for my Instagram not to drink it -w-. It tastes good anyway, not that kind of super sweet style which is perfect!
When we about to leave, there are getting more people visiting the Gudetama Cafe. Overall, the food is good, the price was reasonable as well, however, the choice is less than Osaka Gudetama Cafe. And the only thing I feel a little bit disappointed is the actual cafe location and the lighting there. I think I will definitely go back and try the pancake dish, as that looks amazing. Also, the matcha pudding seems delicious as well. I only got two postcards that time, as you know I like to collect things, so to get the third one is another reason for me to visit the cafe again. (Postcards in left picture).
The Gudetama cafe is a pop-up store (11/4/2016~1/15/2017). It located at Seibu Ikebukuro 8F. There are couple waiting chairs outside the cafe, it must be popular during weekend and holidays. I went there after class around 6pm Tuesday. There were not many people that time. The cafe generally is not that well-designed from my point of view. It just an opening space in the middle of the food hall. The lighting was bad, very dark not as good as the Osaka Gudetama Cafe. But he is still cute. :D
There is a wall full of Gudetama museum design. Love them all. Once I bought my new house, I am gonna print one of those and put it in my living room behind the sofa. lol. There is a couple (actually one) photo spots that you can take pictures and share with friends. But seriously the lighting was terrible. Well, I am not going there for good lighting am I? lol
The menu comes with dessert, main dish and drinks. Although it is only couple food or drinks you can choose but for me, it is still so difficult to make a decision, because all of them are super cute. At the end, I got a Gudetama curry and my friend got a pasta dish. There are so so so cute.
I always appreciated how Japanese people doing things. Even a character cafe, all the food and display is great, you can even see Gudetama's cute bum. If you order the main dish at the end you will get a free postcard as a gift. Also if you order a drink, it will come with a cute cup-mat. If I can take the mug back home as well, I will be so happy. HAHA.
