Eat Takeout Parfaits at THE PARFAIT STAND While Strolling Through Harajuku

03.April.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

Hi, everyone! I’m Banako and I work at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

 

THE PARFAIT STAND is a newly opened store in Harajuku that specialises in takeout parfaits. I dropped by to see what they’re all about. Here’s the report.

To get there, head out of Takeshita Exit at Harajuku Station and you’ll find it immediately to your left.

 

Originally there was a collection of train ticket machines there, but they renovated the space to open the new store. It’s literally outside the station!

The staff all welcomed me with gleaming smiles.

 

THE PARFAIT STAND is the popular sister store to BAKE CHEESE TART which, as the name suggests, sells freshly baked cheese tarts. Deliciousness is guaranteed.

There are two items on the menu! You have the Parfait Chocolate Blanc (¥756 w/tax) made with rich chocolate and bitter coffee, and the Strawberry White Parfait (¥972) which is a limited-edition item available until May 31st. They’re both amazing in their own way – you’ll be spoilt for choice.

After a lot of thought, I decided to go with the limited edition Strawberry White Parfait!

 

I thought it was fresh cream that crowned the top of the parfait, but contrary to my expectations it was meringue! It has a crunchy and crumbly texture and its mellow sweetness fills your mouth.

 

The parfait contains a milk pudding made with vanilla ice cream and Hokkaido milk. It’s also filled with thick strawberry jelly and mousse. The texture is irresistible from top to bottom – you won’t grow tired of it at any section.

You can get yourself an authentic, cute takeout parfait too at THE PARFAIT STAND. Just holding it is kawaii and something new to take onto the streets of Harajuku with you♡

    The kimono she is wearing is yellow/green which are colors that suit this spring season. The color of the obi (band) is the same as the color of the kimono so it has a settled-look and it is suitable to walk around town in this kimono.

    We took a photo in front of the cute shoji (paper door) of MOSHI MOSHI Kimono Salon!

  • Ruki from MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON visits Pop Team Epic collaboration café at Sweets Paradise Harajuku

    01.March.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Japanese anime is a big hit all over the world. Lately, a new one has been climbing the rankings. Have you heard of Pop Team Epic?

    Pop Team Epic (Poptepipic) is a digital manga series that uses punchy images and snappy phrases. It has become increasingly popular as a surreal visual gag manga. Now, it’s not only turning into a big hit in Japan, but all over the world!

     

    キービジュアル(パンケーキ)B_1

    We heard that Harajuku’s dessert café Sweets Paradise is opening a collaboration café with Pop Team Epic, and as big anime fans ourselves, we immediately set off with MOSHI MOSHI BOX staff member Ruki to check it out.

     

    7517484874197.LINE

    To get there, exit Harajuku station (JR Yamanote line) from Takeshita exit and walk straight. On your left, you will notice the shopping centre SoLaDo Takeshita Street (SoLaDo竹下通り) . You will find “Sweets Paradise on the 3rd floor.

     

    7517485027280.LINE

    To eat at Sweets Paradise, first you need to purchase a ticket from the machine at the entrance and then enter the café.

    There are two courses available:

    1 collaboration meal + drink + sweets banquet set ¥1950 (price including tax)

    1 collaboration dessert + drink + sweets banquet set ¥2150 (price including tax)

     

    You can also add foods and drinks from the Pop Team Epic collaboration menu to your chosen meal plan for ¥500. To do this, buy the appropriate ticket from the machine at the entrance.

     

    7517485449119.LINE

    There are Pop Team Epic decorations all around the café!

     

    7517485411029.LINE

    There is even a small set where you can destroy the Takeshobo publishing office, which comes up in the manga!

     

    7517484935023.LINE

    7517484969263.LINE

    There are two types of seats inside the café: “anti-sama/ Takeshobo company employee seats” and the “believers’ seats” . The “anti-sama” tables are decorated very simply. In contrast, the “believers’” tables are draped with beautiful table cloths and are near a large screen that is showing episodes from the Pop Team Epic anime.

     

    7517485376172.LINE

    Being slightly peckish, Ruki did not waste time in scooping up the menu. This dish is called “Aaaaah ichimen no Kusomidori Pasta” (Aaahh a plate of gross green pasta). The random words of countryside-raised Pop Team Epic character Popuko, has been made into a pasta dish.

     

    7517485201578.LINE

    Ruki: “Spinach, edamame and broccoli – this truly is a green dish! The basil sauce is very simple yet delicious! Is this the true taste of nature?!

     

    7517485531347.LINE

    This is the “Konna kao ni naru lemon Juice” (Lemon juice that makes you pull this face). Although a bold move, half the lemon is cut and placed as it is in the glass. Whatever the menu, the names of the foods are crazy! Just what you would expect from Pop Team Epic.

     

    7517485334076.LINE

    Riku’s reaction to the sour drink was predicted by the name of the drink!

     

    7517485486027.LINE

    This is the “Haken Parfait” (Hegemony parfait) You can even order one that is the size of Ruki’s head! This is one filling dessert! The word “覇権” (hegemony) is written on a macaron that sits on top of a pile of fruits and strawberry sherbet. At the foot of the parfait lies a wafer with a picture of a ladder on it.

     

    7517485289610.LINE

    The parfait is an original art piece that depicts a ladder which leads to the top of the parfait to have been toppled over. After looking up the word “覇権” and realizing its meaning, Ruki laughed a lot.

     

    7517485516091.LINE

    The last item Ruki ordered arrived. The Imi ga wakarimasu ka? Café latte. (Do you know what this means? Café latte) As you can imagine, it was quite difficult to say this name to the waiters and waitresses when ordering. There’s a pie chart drawn on the latte, but 90% of it is filled in with the answer “no”.

     

    7517485241066.LINE

    Ruki: It goes well with the desserts because it isn’t sweet!

     

    ポプテ_ノベルティ表_0130

    If you order from the collaboration menu, you will receive a novelty 2019 New Year’s card… even though we have just started 2018…

     

    popute_kb_kokuchi_v1

     

    Pop Team Epic goods are also selling at the cash register! The variety of goods stretched from stickers, keyrings and manga to toilet paper with scenes from the manga printed on it!

     

    The café is only open until 13th March. Opening times vary depending on the café, so make sure you check the opening times before turning up. Don’t miss out on your chance to eat at the Pop Team Epic collaboration café because the manga is becoming more and more popular!

Everything from the signboard to the illustrated menu and stained glass window created by the owner will leave you feeling cozy. The colour green envelops the café against other vivid colours. Due to customer demand the hot cakes sold there (¥750) have been a familiar item on the menu for almost 20 years. The contrast between the crunchy outside and fluffy inside is exquisite. They’re different from your usual pancakes and have a nostalgic feel to them. Combine them with maple syrup and you’ve got yourself a truly delicious treat.

    This stylish café can be found by walking from Harajuku Station down Takeshita Street for about 5-minutes. When you reach the end, turn right and look for the green signboard. The main food on the menu is pancakes, all of which are made with the best ingredients and made one-by-one after an order comes in. The most popular and recommended item on the menu is the fluffy “Premium Pancake” (¥950). The soft pancake wobbles as the waiter brings it over – it looks like it will collapse just by being placed on the table.  Eat this to experience the fluffiest and softest texture you have ever eaten.

    Hi, everyone! Ellie here, I work at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

     

    A question we’ve been getting a lot at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX recently is about cafés where you can sit down – ones with free spaces. Harajuku is particularly crowded on weekends and holidays, so you do need a little courage when heading to a café there, right?

    This small café can be found along Meiji-dori which neighbours the traffic lights at the exit of Takeshita Street. It’s on the 3rd floor of a mixed residence building, so I reckon there’s not a lot of people who know of this place. It has a retro-decorated interior. They’re known for their omurice! The mild cheese and gentle flavour of the Japanese style dashi is to die for.

    Just a 1-minute walk from JR Harajuku Station or Meiji-Jingumae Station lies the Meiji Shrine.

The counters and chairs were made from old, withering trees on the shrine grounds. I recommend the eclairs and croissants prepared every day, or the tofu milk gelato. Not many people know about this hidden gem yet.
