To have fun the Asian debut of ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ stage production, the premises around Akasaka ACT Theatre have became a Harry Potter plaza for the summer. Together with themed decorations, the plaza also encompasses a Harry Potter Café within the Akasaka Biz Tower, with loads of Instagram-worthy dishes and desserts inspired by the Wizarding World.
The menu offers 4 sorts of cheese toasties (¥1,760), each representing a Hogwarts house: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. Each sandwich has a special filling, reminiscent of beef and onion for Gryffindor and salmon and spinach for Slytherin. Each order comes with soup and pickles on the side.
The stew (¥1,650), topped with a pie featuring the Hogwarts logo, also is available in 4 Hogwarts house options. You’ll be able to decide to have either rice or bread on the side.
The side dishes are well presented, too. This salmon tartar, for instance, comes with a Golden Snitch in the center (¥1,100).
Finish your meal with an lovable Hedwig cake (¥1,540).
Or a mont blanc made to seem like Aragog’s Lair (¥1,320).
For drinks, it is advisable to try the ‘levitating’ Wingardium Leviosa cocktail (¥1,320).
If you happen to’re feeling indecisive, just go along with the Hogwarts tasting course (¥4,800). You’ll get a salad, a Platform 9 3/4 beans, a cauldron soup, a dessert and to your essential, a selection of Dragon’s Breath Roast Beef or Owl Post Sunday Roast.
Online reservations are required for eating in. Nevertheless, the café also offers takeout, including scones (¥600).
The iced fruit drinks even are available novelty bottles (¥1,980) to go.
Potterheads will likely be thrilled by the merchandise which are sold exclusively on the café. Items include coasters, keychains, mugs and more.
You’ll find the Harry Potter Café on the primary floor of Akasaka Biz Tower. Remember, reservations have to be made via the website.
