Pompompurin Cafe Collaborates With Bonobono To Release Cute Summer Menu

08.July.2019 | FOOD

Pompompurin cafe Harajuku, Umeda and Yokohama will be collaborating with much-loved manga and anime character Bonobono. The collaboration will see a new menu make its way to the three Pompompurin cafes from July 11 to September 1, 2019. 

 

The theme of the collaboration is Bonobono and Pompompurin on a fun trip to the beach. The collaboration menu includes four meals that are both cute and delicious enough to fully satisfy both Bonobono and Pompompurin fans. 

Two friends swimming in white curry: ¥1,290 (before tax) 

Order the white curry dish and you will see the two pals are wearing matching mushrooms as hats. Pompompurin has come prepared to swim in the curry with a lifering made from a crispy mochi wafer (monaka). The two friends seem to be having lots of fun on their beach trip. The dish is decorated with large and colourful vegetables, shellfish-shaped ham and starfish-shaped bell pepper. This healthy dish is both filling and beautiful.  

Pompompurin English Muffin and Bonobono Doria (Doria: rice casserole dish with a creamy white sauce) ¥1,390 (before tax )

In the English muffin and doria meal, a slice of English muffin is topped with vegetables and a burger. Pompompurin’s face is drawn on a slice of cheese that is placed on top. The meat doria is a casserole topped with a creamy white sauce, decorated with Bononono’s face. Both the pals are seen expressing their friendship by wearing matching berets. This comes as a set with a salad topped with shellfish-shaped ham and chips. What a filling meal. 

Pompompurin Pancake Featuring Bonobono : ¥1,090 (before tax)

The pancake dessert plate features a Pompompurin pancake alongside a Bonobono sherbet that is ramune flavoured. The sherbert might be your first time tasting the unique Japanese flavour of ramune. Ramune is a Japanese soft drink that is blue in flavour and perfect for the summer. Make sure to leave enough room for dessert!

 

Good Pals in a Fluffy Soda ♪: ¥900 (before tax)  

Order the fluffy soda and you will be served with an ocean blue drink. Blue curaçao liqueur and grapefruit syrup are mixed with soda and topped with whipped cream. On top of the drink sits a mango ice cream-flavoured Pompompurin and a marshmallow Bonobono. This refreshing drink depicts the image of the two friends enjoying a swim in the blue ocean. 

 

Customers who order from the limited-time collaboration menu will receive a free postcard. 

All customers who dine in the café will receive a free table mat. Those who order a drink will receive a free drink coaster.
