27.February.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

Hi, everyone. Ellie here from the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

 

Recently at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX we’ve had a lot of people, guys and girls, come in saying that they want to eat some tasty pancakes in Harajuku.

 

So today, I’m here to recommend some shops that sell pancakes around Harajuku.

Café Casa

“Café Casa” is a long-standing shop whose flavours have remained the same, serving to parents and children through the generations. Everything from the signboard to the illustrated menu and stained glass window created by the owner will leave you feeling cozy. The colour green envelops the café against other vivid colours. Due to customer demand the hot cakes sold there (¥750) have been a familiar item on the menu for almost 20 years. The contrast between the crunchy outside and fluffy inside is exquisite. They’re different from your usual pancakes and have a nostalgic feel to them. Combine them with maple syrup and you’ve got yourself a truly delicious treat.

gram

This stylish café can be found by walking from Harajuku Station down Takeshita Street for about 5-minutes. When you reach the end, turn right and look for the green signboard. The main food on the menu is pancakes, all of which are made with the best ingredients and made one-by-one after an order comes in. The most popular and recommended item on the menu is the fluffy “Premium Pancake” (¥950). The soft pancake wobbles as the waiter brings it over – it looks like it will collapse just by being placed on the table.  Eat this to experience the fluffiest and softest texture you have ever eaten.

  • Mogumogu Scarlet #1: Going to eat super soft pancakes in Japan

    12.December.2016 | FEATURES / FOOD

    “Mogumogu Scarlet” is a special project by Scarlet, a girl from the UK who loves Japan, in which she goes to try various Japanese foods. From Japanese food that she hasn’t tried before to familiar Western dishes, she eats food that you can only find in Japan. The first restaurant she chose is “gram”. It is a stylish café that you can find by walking from Harajuku Station down Takeshita Street for about 5-minutes. When you reach the end, turn right and look for the green signboard.

    The inside of the restaurant is cozy and crowded with female customers. The main food on the menu is pancakes. They are made with the best ingredients and made one-by-one after an order. Scarlet tried ordering the premium pancake (¥950), the most popular pancake on the menu.

    img_5511 img_5511

    The pancake was very soft. The waiter was wobbling as they brought it over to the table, and pancake itself too was wobbling. It looked as if it was going to collapse by just being placed on the tabletop.

    img_5506

     

    img_5507

    It was either the first or second softest food she had ever seen, something she realized as she tucked into it. The rich butter taste and soft pancake texture was mouth-melting. This amazing pancake that is made to order is limited in quantity. The fluffiness of the pancake is something you could get hooked on. Scarlet’s eyes gleamed as she said, “It’s so tasty! I’ve never had such a soft pancake like this before! This would definitely be popular in England!”

    img_5509

    img_5508

    In addition to the premium pancakes, there are tiramisu pancakes made with rich mascarpone, as well as ordinary meal pancakes for people who are hungry.

    Harajuku is a hotspot for pancakes, so when you want to go and eat some soft and fluffy pancakes, you should try “gram”.

     

    ■Scarlet comment

    Gram’s signature pancake was completely different to anything I’ve ever eaten before. A total contrast to American diner style pancakes or UK crepe style pancakes. The fluffy tower of goodness was more like a merge between a pancake, a soft sponge and a traditionally made soft scone. It was so fluffy it only just stayed in its immaculate stack, as the waitor handled the plate with great precision and expertise. You get a helping of three gloriously soft pancakes, which you easily share out with your friends if you so wish. With a nice helping of maple syrup, fresh cream and butter to top it off, I can see why this is one of Gram’s most famous creations. Absolutely delicious, and one of a kind.

    For those with less of a sweet tooth, Gram also has an ample savoury menu. I opted for the scrambled egg and bacon – complete with diner style pancakes and other interesting surprises (Bacon Egg Oneplate pancake). Bacon, eggs and pancakes are always a winning combo! The warming cup of soup you get with it is not only yummy and packed with different flavours that they change up, but it is also great before facing Tokyo’s chilly winter. With a nice fresh salad to cleanse the palette afterwards, I was fully satisfied by the ‘just right’ portion sizes at Gram.

    It’s winter special menu!

  • 【Tokyo Cafe】At the heart of trendy Omotesando sits the old, unchanged Café Casa. Take a bite into the past and try the must-eat hotcakes!

    23.February.2017 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Embracing a large number of fans in Tokyo is a café which loves the littlest pleasures. As time has passed in Omotesando, the flavours of this store have always remained the same. From parent to child, this old café is running through the generations and has something for everyone.

    1

    The stained glass window was created by the owner of the shop. It was painted using acrylic paints to give it an old texture to look like glass.  You can really see that the effort put into this piece. From the whole cosy atmosphere to the illustrated menu, you will be deeply amused by your surroundings and your heart will be stolen away.

    25937-161014_ks_10022_900

    25938-161014_ks_10026_900

    The combination of furniture consists of not only tables, there are counter seats too. The antique atmosphere of the café is very soothing. If you’re on your own and looking to enjoy a nice relaxing coffee, this is the place for you!

    4

    Originally, this café provided catered meals, however approximately 20 years ago after hearing requests from customers, hotcakes joined menu (¥750 with tax). The contrast between the crispy surface of the pancake and the fluffiness that lies within is heavenly. This hotcake is different to a pancake ー overflowing with nostalgia, the hotcake is covered in maple syrup for a truly exquisite blend of flavours.

    5

    Another treat to highlight on the menu is the Custard Pudding, which is a perfect blend of sweetness and slightly bitter caramel (¥550 tax included). The founder of this store studied the art of French dessert making. The results of his fine work and particularity over the mix of flavours can still be tasted to this very day in each item on the menu.

    6

    32 years have passed since the founding of this café. It is much loved by its regular customers and has remained unchanged throughout the years as a place where customers can find the balance between their mind and spirit. Spend some quality time in this comforting atmosphere. Forget about Omotesando, and like a time capsule, Café Casa will take you back through a journey of nostalgia — a perfect spot to spend the winter!

  • The Korean shaved ice shop,“SULBING HARAJUKU” –a report by MOSHI MOSHI BOX, staff person, Midori

    16.February.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD / SPOT

    Hello, everyone. My name is Midori Blackmore and I am a staff person of MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

     

    7408500413096.LINE

    Do you like strawberries? I love strawberries so, I feel happy during this spring season because many desserts using strawberries are released every year.

    This time, I visited the very popular shaved ice specialized shop, “SULBING HARAJUKU” from Korea.

    The shop is always crowded in summer, but you don’t have to wait to get into the shop during the winter season.

    It might sound weird to eat ice cream during winter, but I think it is nice to eat something cold inside a warm room, for some reason.

    Eating a shaved ice inside a warm shop is the same!

     

    ソルビン原宿 外観
    The shop is located on the 2nd floor of the building where the sports store, SKECHERS is located, near the Takeshita Exit of Harajuku Station (make a right turn after getting out of the exit). The sign of the shop is small so be careful not to miss it.

    The inside of the shop is spacious and warm. Many of the customers are women but I saw some groups of men as well. A wide generation of people visit the shop.

     

    ソルビン原宿

    Secure a table first before making an order at the counter. The product I ordered was a winter-limited, “Nama Ichigo SULBIN”(fresh strawberry shaved ice)!

    After ordering, take a buzzer and wait at your seat.

    When the buzzer rings, go to the counter and receive your shaved ice.

     

    ソルビン原宿 生いちごソルビン3

    “Nama Ichigo SULBIN”(fresh strawberry shaved ice) 1,400 yen (tax included)

     

    Boom!

    The product was bigger than I thought. Look at the size of it!

    You will realize that it is not a normal shaved ice as soon as you put it into your mouth.

    The ice is very fine and has a soft texture. Even when it is cold out, the ice will not result in a “rush to the head”and you will be able enjoy the fresh ice texture.

    Also, the shaved ice of this shop has the flavor of milk! The combination of the milk-flavored shaved ice and lots of strawberries goes very well.

     

    ソルビン原宿 生いちごソルビン2

    Red bean jam paste is inside the shaved ice so you will never get tired of eating this sweets item.

    SULBIN HARAJUKU sells many kinds of menu items.

     

     

    @chikatetsu0727がシェアした投稿

    One popular menu item is“Mango Cheese SULBIN” 1,500 yen (tax included)

     


    A popular item that is not a sweets is  (food menu)“Mozzarella Toppogi Toast” 1,100 (tax included)

    For those of you who do not have “a sweet tooth,”I recommend that you share an ice shaving dish with your friends or with your boyfriend.

     

    ソルビン原宿 生いちごソルビン
    “Nama Ichigo SULBIN” will be sold until February for sure but it might not be sold in March. Let’s go to the shop as soon as possible!!

    Affogato (¥550), a definite recommendation to those people who find normal ice cream a tad bit boring. It’s made with rich wholesome ice cream that melts its way into strong coffee. Even people who aren’t adjusted to coffee can enjoy this one. What’s more is that “sorama” is a café situated away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Harajuku where time flows calmer, allowing you to take a breather.

  • A visit to ROLL ICE CREAM FACTORY in Harajuku

    15.August.2017 | FOOD / SPOT

    Hi everyone, Midori Blackmore here. I’m a staff person at MOSHI MOSHI BOX.

    It’s just too hot these days, isn’t it? This is summer in Japan for you.

    Have you ever had the experience where you don’t want to eat anything other than ice cream during summer? All I want to eat is ice cream in summer but the problem is, it makes me fat.

     

    But waistline aside, I went to the new ice cream shop, ROLL ICE CREAM FACTORY and I want to report about this.

     

    20170813_170815_0001

    Here is some information concerning the location of this ice cream shop. It takes 5 minutes by foot from Tokyo Metro, Meijiingumae Station. It takes 10 minutes by foot from Harajuku Station, Omotesando exit.

    This “factory” is located near the No.1 elevator of Meijijingumae Station. After you get off the elevator go straight and then turn at Lawson. It is very near the pancake shop, “Eggs’n Things.”

     

    20170813_170815_0007The outside looks like as you can see in this photo. It looks like a building out of Disneyland, don’t you think.

    First, I ordered at the cash register. You can order both from the basic menu or you can order a “custom item” yourself.

    20170813_170815_0008I ordered the recommended item on the menu, “Cookie Monster” because I don’t have such a challenging spirit. Sorry about that.

     

    20170813_170815_0009When I ordered, a young lady made a “Cookie Monster” in front of me. Many people took photos or movies while she was making it. How photogenic this item is, don’t you think!

    They mixed together both the liquid ice cream and some ingredients on a cool plate and stretched it out thinly.

     

    20170813_170815_0012The young lady then rolled it up.

    This was very interesting to look at. I was so impressed, I tried to do this when I made Okonomiyaki that evening but I failed. It was very difficult. Maybe these young ladies have had vigorous training.

     

    20170813_170815_0004It is complete after cute decorations are put in place!

    Yes, it’s very photogenic. I could even make an Instagram account only for this item. It makes for a wonderful photo.

     

     

    20170813_170815_0003

    The taste is very rich and it was very filling.It doesn’t melt as easily as other ice creams,So it doesn’t make your fingers sticky. Accordingly, it makes for a great take out item.

    20170813_170815_0002

    What a face I made.

    The next time you visit Harajuku, you should try this!

    Thank you for your kind attention, from Midori Blackmore.
