So I have finally got around to uploading my Tokyo Vlog – sorry it has taken so long!
I had such an amazing time there and I’m already missing it!
A lot of people have asked about the Studio Ghibli Museum aswell, as there was a tiny bit of footage – I wasn’t allowed to take photos or record in there sadly, but it was a stunning building with character stained glass windows and lots of tunnels and holes for you to walk through!
I thought that I would share a review on the Alice In Wonderland Themed Restaurant that we visited in Shibuya, Tokyo. It was amazing there!
Before we went to Tokyo, we decided to look up the crazy themed restaurants that are around Tokyo. There were Alcatraz themed, prisons, Thunderbirds, Under The Sea, Vampires and even a Robot Restaurant!
We decided to go to the Alice In Wonderland one, as it seemed the most impressive – and I must say, it certainly lived up to it’s hype online!
The food was amazing, not that pricey but definitely brilliant quality and dedication on a plate! All of the dishes and drinks on the menu were themed around Alice In Wonderland, not only by name but by the little touches in appearance.
Not forgetting to mention the menu.. It was presented as a large storybook which was illustrated on each page, with the listings! It was gorgeous!
I decided to get a cabonara pasta (of some sorts, can’t really remember what it was) – it was gorgeous, but they also created a playing card out of the ‘cracker’, or whatever it was! It was such an adorable touch! They even brought us a small starter in a teacup, that had a card which said ‘Eat Me’ on it!
Desert was definitely the highlight of the night! I ordered something along the lines of the caterpillar – it was some sort of a swiss roll which was green to form the caterpillars body. He then had two blueberries for eyes, cream for the head and two chocolate twirl tube things for antennas! He also came with a miniature top hat, which was the most amazing chocolate mousse that I have ever tasted, with chocolate formed as a hat on the top! To top that off even more, they wrote ‘Eat Me’ on the plate in chocolate sauce which was extremely adorable!
If anyone is going to Tokyo, I would very highly recommend this restaurant! Their uniforms were ridiculously cute too – I am sold, I totally want one! We all thoroughly enjoyed it here and would love to go back to this amazing restaurant!
A few people have been wondering where I have been recently, due to the lack of blog posts and tweets. I have been to Tokyo with university – I got back yesterday and I had an amazing time! Tokyo is a ridiculously large place, but you definitely get a culture shock from there. Everyone is so polite, quiet and hardworking.
During my Tokyo visit, we decided to go to Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ghibli Museum (I wasn’t allowed to take photos there though), Nakano, Harajuku, Akihabara, Alice In Wonderland Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo and lots of traditional food places! We also visited the Observation Deck in our hotel, as it also had an Aquarium, Planetarium and a shopping mall.
I thought that I would just place some Tokyo photos here that I took, which will practically sum up my visit there!
