Q-pot Cafe’s Dreamy Sailor Moon Afternoon Tea | Food Review

24.July.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FEATURES / FOOD

Hey, readers. I’m Midori from MMN’s editorial team.

 

Sailor Moon fans are going to want to visit Q-pot right now―a cafe in Omotesando that makes desserts that look like real accessories―as the cafe is currently collaborating with the franchise. The inside of the cafe has been transformed into a cute and magical Sailor Moon world, the kind you could only imagine in your dreams. It has blown up since it opened on June 30 across Japanese social media.

 

There was no way I was going to miss a chance to eat here, so I took a trip to Q-pot to see what kind of kawaii things they had on the menu for the collaboration.

You’ll know Q-pot when you see it in Omotesando by the pouring teapot on the wall next to the menu outside.

Strung up at the entrance are lots of ema plaques where people write their wishes and goals.

As soon as you step inside the cafe you are transported into a world of cute. The various chocolate and biscuit decorations on the wall are just plain kawaii. It gets you excited to start eating♡

I started by ordering the drink set which comes with the Moon Twilight Soda and Tuxedo Night Mocha. The soda contains berries and its lemon and apple flavour gives it a sweet and sour taste. The pink gradation is cute too♡

 

The mocha takes inspiration from Tuxedo Mask flying through the city at night. The rim of the glass is lined with sparkly sugar. The drink isn’t just an ordinary cafe mocha – it secretly contains a sweet strawberry flavour which adds an enchanting aftertaste.

Next I tried the Transformation Brooch Macaron Cake. Shaped as a macaron, this cake is based by the brooch necklace which Usagi uses to transform into Sailor Moon. It’s served on a ribbon-shaped plate which you can take home with you. The cake is filled with apricot and mango mousse inside which is pineapple♡

 

On top of the macaron is another exquisite macaron containing lemon jelly. The jelly and fruit sparkle to create a girly and gorgeous dessert. After you’ve eaten you can take the plate back to use at home!

And now for the crowning jewel: the Sailor Moon Afternoon Tea Set! This is one that anybody is going to crave when seeing it. It comes with two plate packed with food and desserts. The ribbon at the top is cute too.

The upper tier is adorned with macarons, mousse cakes, cookie sandwiches, and glass desserts.

The lower tier has sandwiches, vichyssoise soup, and olive and tomato pinchos.

The glass dessert is a raspberry mousse topped with Sailor Moon’s Moon Stick. The mousse is fluffy and very tasty. The sourness of the berries isn’t too strong either – it’s a nice and light flavour.

When biting into the mousse cakes your mouth is filled with the gentle sweetness of the white chocolate.

 

Macarons are a popular dessert at Q-pot. The Sailor Moon ones are bite-sized and almost seem a waste to eat because of how cute they are. The cookie sandwiches, which are based on Luna and Artemis, are stuffed with lemon cream which has a refreshing taste. The cookies also have a delicious buttery flavour.

The lower tier sandwiches contain duck and broccoli. The sandwiches are small but you get a lot of veg so you won’t go hungry. The soup is great not just as a light meal but as a palate cleanser after the desserts too. Try eating some when your stomach says it’s full from all the sweet stuff!

My belly was pretty full after this afternoon tea set. I recommend ordering it for lunch.

 

If you’re looking for a place to eat out with your girl friends when why not enter the fairy tale world of Q-pot for the Sailor Moon collaboration? Q-pot even has its own merchandise too so be sure to check it out!

  • Universal Studio Japan’s Attack on Titan, Sailor Moon & Other New Attractions Now Open

    03.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    A special press preview and opening ceremony was held at Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in the run up to the park’s Universal Cool Japan 2019 event.

     

    Universal Cool Japan is an annual event held at USJ where Japanese entertainment brands and companies who promote Japan’s “cool” culture to the world come together and turn the worlds they create into attractions. This year’s event will see attractions from “6 big franchises” including the first ever Lupin the Third attraction as well as Detective ConanAttack on TitanGodzilla, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Sailor Moon. A total of eight attractions have arrived, the most in the event’s history.

     

    The opening ceremony was held at USJ’s 4D cinema theatre in the park’s Hollywood area. Japanese actor Yukiyoshi Ozawa, who has played roles in both the Japanese and Hollywood film industry, appeared as a special guest. The event was attended by a small selection of just 100 fans of the entertainment franchises introduced to this year’s Universal Cool Japan.

    When Yukiyoshi Ozawa stepped onto the dark stage donning a very stylish outfit, the crowd erupted with surprise and a flurry of cheers. When asked about struggles that have been important to him, the San Francisco-born actor responded: “When I was accepted for the Hollywood film audition, I was trembling with excitement. I thought to myself, ‘This will help me grow, and I will be able to express myself to the world.’ On the first day of shooting [the Hollywood film], I was so nervous I was shaking, but when the first day ended, I realised that the entire system for shooting films was all the same, the only difference being whether it’s in English or Japanese. That relieved my tension and I was able to concentrate on the film shoot thereafter. You only have to step outside to see, but I think that more and more of the wonderful brands and works of Japan want to be received well around the world, and I believe that Universal Studios Japan is making that big chance possible.”

     

    Dramatic music played as gigantic visuals of Attack on TitanGodzillaNeon Genesis Evangelion and Salior Moon appeared. Ozawa spoke of his experience seeing three 4D attractions that are running for the event for a limited time, praising their high quality.

    The “Cherry Cherry Parfait” is topped with snow-white whipped cream, crunchy meringue, and cherries for a gorgeous contrast of red and white.
