Purveyors of refined taste and the subtle touch, KAWAII MONSTER CAFE, are celebrating a milestone; they’ve seen some 30,000 diners pass through their doors. In honour of this number, a new menu at the cafe has been out together for Japan’s Golden Week period.
Menu items are, of course, designed around making as much of a visual impact as could be conceived possible for this kind of thing. The color purple is featured, as are unicorn motifs, lips, mushrooms, and pizzas upon which diners can get creative by drawing faces.
KING OF KAWAII MONSTER set: 3,030 yen
A first for the cafe, this salsa and demi-glace sauce burger comes sandwiched inside a purple bun.
Picasso Pizza: 2,600 yen
As the name might suggest, this menu item is trying to draw out something of the artist within diners by adding a side serving of tube colors to the main pizza dish. Presumably the stuff that comes out of the tubes is edible.
(Set menu includes salad, drink and soft cream)
Poison Mushroom Cake
Part of the ‘rank up’ dessert menu (+ 500 yen). The Poison Mushroom Cake is a actually a base of mango cake filled with yoghurt mousse.
Xoxo Cake (aka, Kiss Cake)
Get your smackers around this cup cake if, indeed, you can fit them around the oversized set of ‘fresh cream’ lips that are perched on the top. Anyone who’s been to Kawaii Monster Cafe will know that ‘lips’ are a common theme throughout the space. And so the trend continues here.
Featuring the cafe’s pet unicorn. A pink version, adopting a new posture for this menu item.
