Cosplay Mania is next week.You're probably reading this sometime late October. I always post / queue things in order to keep my blog ongoing!
So many things are playing inside my head. I feel heavily inadequate. Best of Anime just ended, and I feel as though I have not pushed as much as I could. A lot of people like to settle into their ideas. I got a lot of compliments, and yet... I feel I have not worked as hard as I could. Most of my friends tell me that my perfectionism will both be my downfall and strength. Everyone's patting me on the back. Yet, I feel doubtful of everything that I am doing. I am scared, but no matter what happens, I need to carry on. I feel this strongly. All I know right now is that I will be successful. I will achieve victory!
Anyway, a little side bar from the normal anime cafes!
Today, we'll be taking a look at the Pomunoki Cafe in Harajuku!
I'm still a bit disappointed that Ojipan cafe ended already! It was replaced with another Sanrio series collaboration with Patty & Jimmy for Pomunoki cafe! I believe they're new characters as I've never heard of them prior to me researching this cafe. Even still, they are quite cute. Are they American characters? Western influences are an influx at this cafe.
Here are some photographs of the interiors (something I am quite passionate about):
Strong bold colours cover the cafe. The primary colours are evident just as it was during their Ojipan collaboration. Somehow, these types of colours soothe me. I know a lot of people would feel otherwise, but bold colours remind me of childhood. It makes me feel happy whenever I can see children / cute graphics in things, y'know?
I love visiting cafes here in Tokyo as I take inspiration from them. One day, I hope to open my own cafe. (In the not-so distant future, actually!)
I love the lighting, too!
I WISH I TOOK A PHOTO HERE!
If you purchase the omurice meal, you get to select a free cup! It also came with stickers~ I ordered the omurice meal set with a green cup. I choose to have it with the mentaiko / cod roe sauce! Best dinner ever!
Their menu is pretty upfront and basic. However, there are plenty of components to each dish! I asked my Mom to order their pasta but she said that she was still full from our tempura expedition. I got a little disappointed by that. At the moment, I'm actually trying to lose as much weight as I can because I plan to eat a lot when I return home.
A close-up of the meal! I loved their onion rings. Ah~ Is there anything better than fried foods? Nothing! The omurice service was quite small. That broke my heart. A lot.
I also ordered some lemonade~
I know this was quite a short post~ I probably won't be returning to this cafe at my current trip. (By the time you read this, I'll be in Tokyo!) But I do plan on going to the Pommes / Pomunoki branch at Harajuku to have some original egg rice~
I hope you're doing well!
