    The concept for the new cafe opening in Tokyo’s Kichijouji district is “Fruit Parlour.” Look forward to munching your way through an assortment of fruit-filled sandwiches, pudding
    à la mode, and moreーall of which are packed full of The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s favourite fruits.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Fruit Curry (*Price TBA)

    Very Hungry Plate (*Price TBA)

    Meals on the menu are inspired by the fruits the caterpillar ate each dayーwhich have been recreated using rice! The fruit curry is made with lots of apple, mango, and tomato. It’s a pork curry that has a fruity flavour and a subtle sweetness. If you don’t like spicy curries, then this dish is the one for you.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Kid’s Plate (w/Drink) (*Price TBA)

    The menu is also packed with food for kids, like this kid’s plate which comes with a chicken and broccoli tomato pasta, mini pancakes, and a side of fruit. There’s also baby food, like a thin rice porridge made with soft rice and vegetables.

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Fruit Sandwich (*Price TBA)

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Cheesecake (*Price TBA)

    Of course, this tasty menu wouldn’t be complete without a long list of drinks and desserts. There’s the adorable fruit sandwich which recreates the caterpillar’s body, and a New York-style cheesecake topped with artistic cookies made with vegetables and spicesーand all with natural colourings.
