Ikea has finally become a regular presence in central Tokyo, now with three downtown locations: Harajuku, Shibuya and Shinjuku. In addition to offering affordable flatbed furniture, Ikea stores in Tokyo also have a cafe serving the brand’s signature Swedish meatballs, vegan dishes and even seasonal matcha desserts. Now for Halloween, Ikea Japan has a menu of spooky desserts up to Sunday October 31.
One of the main items for Halloween are black pancakes (¥ 700), made with bamboo charcoal for that dark color. The pancakes are served with a handful of berries, whipped cream, a bat-shaped cookie, and a meringue eye.
The black chiffon cake (¥ 250) is also made with bamboo charcoal and topped with jam and cranberry cream.
Continuing with the black theme, there is also a black pudding with sesame (¥ 290) with a bright yellow cat’s eye.
from Ikea donuts (¥ 250 each) were given a whimsical twist with the addition of meringue eyeballs and colorful frosting.
The classic vanilla soft serve is transformed into a bloody sundae (¥ 250) with berry sauce and a finger-shaped cookie with an almond “nail”. Finger cookies can also be purchased separately, at 120 each.
Or, get the spooky cookies in a Swedish flatbread known as tunnbrod. This Halloween special is called the bloody tunnbrod (¥ 250), and is served with a finger cookie, whipped cream and a “bloody” berry sauce.
Pumpkin pie, do you like it? Go for the pumpkin pie (¥ 390) topped with small pieces of pumpkin and served with whipped cream.
