27.July.2018 | FOOD
Pochacco is one of the many characters produced by Sanrio alongside Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Gudetama and many others.

Gudetama & Pochacco Getting-Along Hamburger – ¥1,250 (+Tax)
Hugging these hamburgers are a white Pochacco bun with his iconic floppy ears and hair made from wafers, and a Gudetama carrot bun. Both come as a set with a side of salad and fries.

Pochacco is made of refreshing vanilla ice cream and sat comfortably on top of an overflowing parfait. There’s a perfect mix of sweetness from the whipped cream and sponge and and sourness from the mangoes, kiwi and berries. At the bottom is Blue Hawaii jelly to complete that summertime feel. Don’t forget the tiny Gudetama marshmallows diving in the cream!
Gudetama & Pochacco Very Berry French Toast – ¥1,100 (+Tax)
The thick-cut French toast is topped with colourful fruits and drizzled with a dark berry sauce. Vanilla ice cream Pochacco has marshmallow paws and Gudetama is made of mango ice cream. This delicious dish has lots of flavours to enjoy – just looking at it is enough to satisfy your tummy!

Report: The Successful Second Tabekko Doubutsu Cafe Stand in Omotesando
The second Tabekko Doubutsu Cafe Stand event opened in Omotesando on November 1, 2022. Paying homage to the classic snack first released in 1978, the cafe features a number of tasty snacks inspired by the thin animal-shaped cookies popular around the world.
This second event will run through January 9, 2023. Reservations are required, and many dates were completely sold out prior to the event’s start date, particularly on weekends. We decided to visit, anxious to see what the fuss is all about.
We were first shocked to see the popular animals enjoying oden! Original goods featuring the characters enjoying the quintessential Japanese winter dish are only available at the cafe. From acrylic keychains to figures, visitors can snag some adorable merchandise to commemorate their trip to the exclusive event. Why not snag some items that would be useful on a daily basis, like a notebook or an apron?
For food, visitors can snag a special Oden Set and Chinese Dumplings, both perfect for the winter. The oden features popular ingredients like egg, daikon, fish cake, and mochikinchaku, each branded with the popular animal characters. Drinks include soy milk, green tea milk, and milk tea.
In addition to the exclusive Lion Cake which is limited to 25 servings a day, guests can find chocolate bananas and other sweets on the menu, including a Sweets Set limited to those reserving special seats at the venue. For every ¥1,000 spent on food and drink items, customers will receive one Tabekko Doubutsu trading card!
The exhibition space is a must-see for fans of this legendary snack, filled with rare works including an adorable and very colorful print of every animal holding a bowl of oden. Of course, a photo spot has been set up for visitors to take some prime shots for social media!
Don’t miss the animal meet and greet, which is making its triumphant return from the last event! Visitors can interact with different animals on different days, so check the official Twitter page (@tabekko_cafe) for the schedule and more information! The number of visitors per day is limited, so make a reservation as early as you can.
Come enjoy these heartwarming treats while you have the opportunity!
