  • Starbucks Japan’s Autumn Beverage Line-Up Includes Golden Sweet Potato Frappuccino & Macchiato

    17.September.2019 | FOOD

    Starbucks Japan has unveiled the second batch of drinks in its ongoing Artful Autumn @ Starbucks® promotion: the “Sweet Potato Gold Frappuccino®” and the “Sweet Potato Gold Macchiato.” Both will go on sale on September 10.

     

    The concept for this year’s Artful Autumn is “Be Colourful,” and that shines true with this golden, autumnal coffee line-up.

    The Sweet Potato Gold Frappuccino® contains a rich syrup made from cured sweet potato. It retains the rich, full-bodied aroma, sweetness and deep flavour of the Japanese sweet potato (satsumaimo). The drink’s main characteristic is the crunchy texture left behind from the potatoes. Its golden appearance comes from the honey and sweet potato blend sauce. This sauce swirls around the beverage which can be seen through the cup, giving it that artistic flavour required to be considered for the Artful Autumn selection. The cold coffee beverage is drizzled in this same sauce, rich in flavour and fragrance.

     

    Each cup of the Sweet Potato Gold Macchiato is made delicately in a mix of foamed milk, sweet potato honey, and a shot of freshly extracted espresso. The combination of the sweet and rich sweet potato and full-bodied espresso roast coupled with the caramel-y flavour is a coffee match made in heaven. The hot beverage is topped with more of that incredible sauce drizzled in the classic way of a macchiato.

     

    Warm yourself up this season with the latest in the Artful Autumn collection.

  • Review: Miffy Café at Tokyo Solamachi®

    25.September.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    In commemoration of Miffy’s 65th anniversary, the new Miffy Café opened on the first floor of Tokyo Solamachi on September 11, 2020 and will remain open for a limited time. The café is also collaborating with Japanese illustrator Shogo Sekine.

    We visited the café to check out the themed menu, merchandise, and other fun things on show to see.

    Stepping into the café is like stepping into a picture book world. It’s really colourful in there. My mother read Miffy to me when I was a child, so I was hit with a real sense of nostalgia when I entered the café. No matter your age, you’re sure to enjoy your time there – that’s the kind of fun atmosphere they have created.

    Terrine-Style Open Miffy Sandwich | ¥1,499

     

    I ordered the terrine-style open Miffy sandwich and Miffy orange float from the themed menu.

    The open sandwich arrives in the shape of Miffy, so it almost seems a waste to eat, but it was really cute and delicious. Simply the best. It’s filled with potato salad, an avocado sauce, and salmon.

    Miffy Orange Float | ¥899

    The ice cream that tops the orange float is made to look like Miffy too!

    Snapping a photo while drinking the float is pretty Instagrammable, so it’s a must when visiting.

    All of the items on the menu have Miffy somewhere on them, meaning anything you order is guaranteed to be kawaii. They have takeout too, which is great if you don’t have much time to hang around or just don’t want to dine inside.

    Speaking of which, each table in the café is separated with an acrylic board to protect customers during the pandemic, and all of them have super cute designs. Another photo opportunity for sure!

    The café sells original merchandise too. The fashion items and illustrations with English on them were designed by popular Japanese illustrator Shogo Sekine. There’s a whole range of different goodies, from plush toys to fashion and more.

    Don’t you feel happy just looking at all these colours? You’ll find yourself spoilt for choice on what to buy.

     

    The Miffy Café is open until October 18. You can book a table too, so if you’re in Japan during this time, be sure to visit the café website below.
