Disney’s new live-action adaptation of Aladdin opened was released in Japan on June 7. To celebrate its release, two themed cafes were by OH MY CAFE in Tokyo and Osaka.
The Tokyo cafe opened at Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku on June 14 and the Osaka one at kawara CAFE & DINING on June 15. Both will run until July 15.
The MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON editorial team visited the Omotesando cafe with Japanese model Kanako to report on the cafe’s decor and design and food.
The first thing to catch your eye when you enter is Jasmine’s gorgeous and intricate dress. Photos with the dress are permitted.
Hanging from the cafe ceiling is an assortment of magic lamps while carpets are draped across the wall. Kanako went dressed up like Jasmine to enter this Aladdin-inspired world.
There are plenty of places to take great photos throughout the cafe, such as these Jasmine silhouettes illustrated on pillars.
Jasmine & Dalia’s Colorful Pasta: ¥1,790 (Before Tax)
Magic Carpet’s Special Sandwich Wrap: ¥1,790 (Before Tax)
The food of course is also based on the film. The menu includes a delicious and faithful line-up from the curry inspired by the magic lamp to Carpet’s sandwich wrap and a colourful pasta dish decorated with Jasmine and Dalia. It’s safe to say everything on the menu is Instagram-worthy.
Kanako ordered the pasta dish. She gave it a rave review, saying, “It’s colourful and cute. It’s cute it has Jasmine and Dalia too♡” We recommend this dish for those who want to eat something light.
Rajah’s Orange Smoothie: With Coaster ¥1,690 (Before Tax), Without Coaster ¥750 (Before Tax) / Genie’s Yogurt Smoothie: With Coaster ¥1,690 (Before Tax), Without Coaster ¥750 (Before Tax)
For drinks, enjoy the tiger-striped Rajah orange smoothie or the blue Genie yogurt smoothie. Both are super refreshing and perfect for the summer heat.
The cafe also sells exclusive original merchandise including key rings, an iPhone case and much more. Visit the cafe to see the full line-up.
There are also two lunch mats you can get your hands on by booking a table in advance. The design is chosen for you randomly. So if you’re planning a trip, don’t forget to reserve in advance.
How did you enjoy your visit, Kanako-chan?
“They had Jasmine’s dress on display. I felt like I had been sucked into the world of Aladdin. If you love Aladdin or you love Disney, please be sure to pay a visit.”
Whether you have seen or have yet to see Disney’s new Aladdin movie, if you’re in Tokyo or Osaka this summer, don’t miss a chance to enter its romantic and oriental world at the official themed cafes.
