As I’m sure you all know, Japan, and especially Tokyo, is known for its themed cafes and restaurants. It’s one of the charms of the area. But what you likely didn’t know is that even restaurants and cafes that have no relation to a franchise can whip up some pretty neat dishes that pay homage to a series. That’s exactly what Cafe Address in Ikebukuro’s PARCO has done with their new EVANGELION themed dishes that started to hit tables yesterday. I’m gonna say, they look pretty delicious too, I’m not going to lie.
The event kicked off yesterday and the official EVA-INFO site shared some news about the offerings that will be available at Cafe Address. For starters, there is a curry dish that comes in the shape of the NERV HQ, complete with the NERV flag on top. Then we have the Unit-01 Spinach pasta which looks absolutely delicious. Then for the sweets lovers, there is the Berry Angel Waffles and the Unit-01 Parfait. Then, to wash it all down, the cafe has also set up a series of drinks that are themed after the different EVA units.
Each of the items will come on a special EVANGELION themed grand menu or dessert menu. And all patrons will get to keep their special EVANGELION coaster if they end up purchasing one of the themed drinks.
The special EVANGELION themed items will be taking over Cafe Address in Ikebukuro’s PARCO from 18 January 2021 until 16 February. The cafe is on the sixth floor of the building and it’s not too hard to miss. If you’re in the area, you might want to check it out, but get there kind of early because events and special menus like this tend to draw pretty large crowds.
