J-pop lovers and AKB48 fans will be ecstatic to know that the world’s first AKB48 concept café has just launched at *SCAPE. For those unfamiliar with J-pop culture, AKB48 is the world’s largest pop group with more than 70 members, also Japan’s top idol girl group sensation. Since the group originated at Akihabara, the café is designed with a theatre-style exterior and mini-stage within, similar to the performance space at Akihabara.
The food servings are mainly modern fusion cuisine and desserts. The present set lunch includes main courses such as Japone pasta ($14.90) and omu curry rice ($15.90) which come with a choice of salad or soup. I love the omu rice with beef curry because the omelette wrap is very runny, unless many other versions which are dry and stale-looking. After pouring the Japanese curry gravy over the rice, the spicy-sweet-salty combination will make you go ‘oishii’.
