Mika Travels: Part 02: Pom Pom Purin Cafe in Harajuku!

Hello, Hero(ine)/s!

LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING THIS: I LOVE POM POM PURIN AND HIS FRIENDS. PuriRoon forever! <3 (Purin + Macaroon, okay~) ⊂(♡⌂♡)⊃

I've read plenty of blogs that say that the food in Pom Pom Purin cafe's pretty average. I'm a see (or should I say eat...?) to believe person so no 3/5 review was gonna stop me from running all the way to Q Cube and eating there! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

I was actually pretty surprised! Where I come from, this is already pretty high class! (I know a lot of you guys are all ~Poor Mika, she must come from such a horrible place to consider food in Pom Pom Purin cafe as high class~ well, I guess... in a way! o(〃^▽^〃)o) All I can comment on is that the foods are a bit overpriced for what you're getting so unless you're willing to shelve out cash then this isn't really the place to be!

But please do visit if you're in Harajuku! It was such a happy and fun time for me! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and I do plan on returning this coming February! 

I went around a week before Halloween!

I kept this placemat and brought it home! I thought it was too cute to just leave behind! I have it in my clear file. I want to be able to see these cuties 20 years from now and remember the beautiful moments I had! I'm sure I'll be crying happy tears in front of my future family~ Ah, to be able to relive these moments! 

Note: If you're going to travel, always bring a clear file with you to keep your tickets, souvenirs and goodies!

The menu! (๑′ڡ‵๑)۶४४yϋᵐᵐӵ♡॰⋆̥

Now please don't tell me you don't want to eat and try everything! What I did ordering plenty of stuff was totally justified! I've always been pegged as 'takaw tingin' or in English someone who orders a lot because everything looks good. I don't mind being called greedy! You never know when they might change their menus after all.  (ˆ ڡ ˆ)

They haven't changed their menu but whatever...

Carpe diem!

I kept the coaster, too! You only get one per drink.

The Cafe Latte was a bit too sweet in my opinion. And that's coming from me who adores anything sweet. The whipped cream was rich and glorious~ (ノ≧ڡ≦) It had a milky taste which is making my mouth water just by thinking about it! The syrup was your kind of generic but over-all, I loved it! It makes me happy just knowing that I've had this at some point in my life!

KAWAII OVERLOAD! *foams at mouth* ᕕ[ ˵ ☯ ڡ ☯ ˵ ]┐

I won't order it again simply because there are other items on the menu, but it was really delicious.

I know, I know. I sound a little enthusiastic over this. If you were there, you'd feel the same way, too. TRUST ME.


*mouth waters*

*Scientist voice* The taco rice was definitely brilliant!

Everything about this meal was perfect. It still had the typical Mexican elements and taste to it but had a Japanese twist~ It doesn't taste as strong or flavorful as what you'd get in a typical Taco Rice (WHUUUUT, MIKAAAAA. WHUUUUUUT?).  ( ՞ ڡ ՞ ) It was really mild! Was it just me or was it a bit sweet, too? If I had a daughter, I'd take her here the very moment we land in Japan. Heck I'd take my son here! Kids are definitely going to enjoy! 

I sound like a Mom... but that's the dream.

Pom Pom Purin's face was drawn on a chocolate pen! Also his hat is a portobello mushroom! Ahh~ Kawaii! I can't begin to explain how much I gushed the whole time. > w < 

The squirrel's sour cream! OH HOH HOH! Σ_(꒪ཀ꒪」∠)_

Need a little sweetness in my life~  ( ՞ ڡ ՞ )─∈

The fruits on the side have this syrup on them and it's so good! It tasted so fresh~ It's quite rare to have this quality of produce where I'm from so whenever I get the chance to eat such delicious fruits, I gobble them all up within 10 seconds after receiving my plate! Everything looks so cute and is presented so well. I love this so much! The pancakes had delicious cream on the centre and it was so yummy! It was a bit expensive but totally worth it!

You get to keep the container after your meal! (Actually, they'll give you a new one in a box!) 

I won't order it again for the sake of other items on the menu... but it really was good! (っ˘ڡ˘)っ─∈

I was about to be rolled out Takeshita Dori (OR THE NEAREST HOSPITAL) because I was so damn full after. But I couldn't! I couldn't help it! *COVERS FACE* Please don't ever stop me from eating in Japan. I'd rather starve for days and save my money than not eat everything I want in Tokyo.

Mika in Japan: OM NOM NOM NOM NOM ٩(♡ε♡ )۶
