In Japan, you can never have too much of a good thing. Case in point: There are two Moomin cafés in Tokyo! If you’re into these super adorable hippo-like characters, then their cafés should part of your bucket list.
The items in the menu are based on the Moomin family and their friends, including Finnish dishes that are an homage to the characters’ heritage. Here are some of our recommendations:
Moomin House Yokubari Plate (¥1,800, excluding tax) is a limited daily offer that includes a three-level cocotte (dips, marinated vegetable, and homemade pudding) inside a Moomin House, and Scandinavian meatball, salad, and seasonal vegetables on the plate.
Moomin Plate (¥1,300, excluding tax) is a set meal that includes a Moomin-shaped rice, beef demi-glace sauce made from The Netherland’s cocoa, three types of seasonal salads, and scrambled eggs.
Both sets come with soup, drinks (weekdays only), and all-you-can-eat bread.
At dinner time, you can get a 5% discount when you purchase more than three items off their menu and a 10% discount when you buy five. What’s even great is how most dishes come with small Moomin ceramic figures you can take back home as souvenirs!
