I have written quite a bit about the Kirby Cafe here on OTAQUEST and it’s for one reason: It is absolutely amazing (even if it is a bit overpriced). Each season they present a new menu complete with seasonal themed items that are not only adorable, but they’re also delicious. Hot on the tails of their recently announced Winter menu, they announced today the Kirby Cafe Sweet NEW YEAR 2021, complete with some new tastes and some new goods that will be hitting on 1 January 2021 when the event kicks off.
Normally the Kirby Cafe does a complete menu overhaul when they kick off a new season or a new event, but this time, that is not the case. Rather, they are introducing a series of sweets that are modeled after one of their most popular menu items, the Kirby Burger. Along with the candified version of their iconic dish, they are also offering customers the ability to take home a small ceramic plate that features Kirby and an Ice Dragon front and center on it as a souvenir. That makes it worth it to me alone. I love to collect anything related to Kirby.
The Kirby Cafe is usually pretty busy all year long, so if you’re in the Tokyo area or are going to be here for the holidays as one of the countries that can actually travel here, it might be a good idea to make a reservation at the Kirby Cafe website, as spots tend to fill up extremely quick when it comes to events like this. The event will be taking place at all Kirby Cafe locations throughout Japan, so if you’re not able to make it to the Tokyo Skytree location, the other location in Hakata is also going to be doing the same Sweet NEW YEAR 2021 festivities.
