    The buffet is a step up from last year’s “Fashionable Hello Kitty Dessert Buffet” which we covered.


    This year’s summer buffet tea party combo is a sweet amalgamation of finger licking and lip smacking flavours. In the middle of the “Ice Cream Cup Cheesecake” is a moist baked cheesecake topped with cream cheese—and all of this hugged by a crunchy cone.

    Then there’s the “Lollipop Mousse Green Apple,” a vivid green iced candy with a fresh apple mousse filled with apple jam for a mix of sweet and sour flavours. The “Vegan Melon Cream Soda Jelly” is a melon flavoured jelly topped with a cream made from fizzy lime foam. If you’re wanting cake, then there’s the fluffy “Pineapple Chiffon Cake” topped with lots of cream.


    The “Pudding à la Mode” is topped with a chocolate My Melody picture, of which there are several designs.

     

    The vegans too have their fair share of refreshing summertime bites to enjoy too, like the “Vegan Peach Bellini” which uses agar-agar instead of gelatin. It’s a delightful combination of muscat grape jelly and peach jam. The “Vegan Chocolate Chip Cupcakes” have a fresh kick to them thanks to the fruity pineapple and soy milk combo. Other delights include the “Soy Milk Cream Fruit Bun,” “Vegan Piña Colada Panna Cotta,” and more.

     

    The buffet also includes 5 savoury food dishes too like cold corn soup, curry, salad, and more.

    The Dinosaur Expo 2019 began at National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno, Tokyo on July 13, and in promotion of the exhibition, a thrilling dinosaur themed event is set to take place at the Atre Ueno shopping mall from August 1 to September 30.

    Atre Ueno is located inside Ueno Station, and if you roll into the station right now you’d best be careful of the bipedal, carnivorously cute 5 meter high panda-saur. You’ll find it on display at the station’s Grand Concourse (it’s pretty hard to miss!)

     

    You might be wondering why there’s a giant panda dressed as a fluffy dinosaur. The reason is that Ueno Zoo has its very own giant pandas which have become a symbol of the town. And the dinosaur our station panda is dressed as is the Deinocheirus, the main showpiece of The Dinosaur Expo.

    In promotion of the museum’s exhibition, 19 restaurants and cafes at Atre Ueno are serving up their very own dinosaur-inspired meals―both meat for the carnivora and vegetarian for the herbivores―as well as desserts.
