KIRBY CAFÉ: The World’s First Permanent Kirby-Themed Café to Open in Tokyo

05.December.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FOOD

The KIRBY CAFÉ is set to open on the 4th floor of Toyko Solamachiーthe shopping, dining and entertainment complex under Tokyo Skytreeーon December 12, 2019 as the world’s first permanent Kirby-themed café.

 

Though we still have a week to wait until Kirby inhales us whole into his café, the official website is already live, showcasing a new line-up of food and merchandise different from that held at the pop-up Kirby cafés (which we have covered extensively in Fukuoka and even Tokyo Solamachi, the latter of which has seen the most pop-ups).

 

Some of the menu items are served in a Kirby lunch box, on a Kirby plate, and more. Let’s take a look. Menu items below are translated from Japanese.

KIRBY CAFÉ’s Stone Baked Pizza ~Maximum Tomato Margherita~ – ¥1,380 (Before Tax)

KIRBY CAFÉ’s Stone Baked Pizza ~Greedy Half ‘n’ Half~ – ¥3,980 (Before Tax)

Served on an original plate, the half ‘n’ half comes served with two pizza flavours of your choice. Perfect for those times when you can’t decide because all the options are too good!

Kirby’s Munching Loco Moco Bowl – ¥1,980 (Before Tax)

Munch and chew on this tasty serving of loco moco just like Kirby is adorably doing on the lunch box it comes in.

Whole Egg Plant & Meat Pasta: Say Your Wish to the Galaxy – ¥1,380 (Before Tax)

Meta Knight’s Precious Matcha Mousse – ¥780 (Before Tax)

Doctor Kirby’s Secret Lab Soda – ¥1,280 (Before Tax)

As well as these incredible-looking dishes, there’s lots of other cute ones you can order for takeout too.

 

If you visit the KIRBY CAFÉ, you’ll have to pay a visit to KIRBY CAFÉ THE STORE as well which is located on the 2nd floor of Solamachi. There’s around 200 pieces of Kirby merchandise including exclusives as well as KIRBY CAFÉ-themed items.

The KIRBY CAFÉ has its own soundtrack which you can actually buy at the store too. It will be released on December 12. We did an article about it here.

Customers can received a specially-made sticker with the CD design when they buy something at the café or store.

The KIRBY CAFÉ gives priority to reservations, so if you’re hoping to get sucked into the world of Kirby, be sure to book in advance.

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?

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!
