The Lazy Egg Gudetama Has His New Cafe In Ikebukuro, Tokyo!

Cartoon character Gudetama has a new Cafe in his honor in Ikebukuro neighborhood of Tokyo. Make sure to go while it lasts! Gudetama will only honor us of his presence until January 21st, 2018.

...Gudetama?

Gudetama is a lazy egg character that has achieved world fame. His name comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia "gudegude", which actually means dead drunk, and "tama" which are the first two syllables of the word for egg ("tamago"). He has no motivation for doing anything and that's perhaps why people love him. He was designed by the Japanese company Sanrio, famous most notably for its Hello Kitty character and making all kinds of products inspired by the kawaii pop culture of Japan.

Gudetama Cafe In Ikebukuro, Tokyo - Open From November 8, 2017 to January 21, 2018

This is the second coming of Gudetama to Ikebukuro. The cafe, decorated with all kinds of Gudetama art, opened during the winter period of 2016 and 2017 and is opening again for the 2017-2018 season. We hope this will become a permanent event in Tokyo! The cafe is on the 8th floor or the Seibu Ikebukuro Honten Department store located very close to the Ikebukuro Station.

Menu

Here are some popular menu items. You'll find Gudetama in all kinds of forms and shocking situations.

"Okaasan... (kamoshirenai)"

This one popular menu item is actually quite awful. Gudetama is crying sesame seeds because the chicken leg that accompanies him might be his mother. The name of the dish literally means "this might be my mother".

"Mou Kaettemo Ii?"

He's just had enough and is asking: "can I go back home already?". Surely everyone can relate! In this version, he's made out of mango ice cream and he's sitting on sweet cream. He's the topping of fruit pancakes that have chocolate and caramel sauce in between them.

Matcha Latte

This one is a whipped cream matcha latte with Gudetama's derriere sticking out.

"Roast Beef Don"

Find him in his true egg form in this dish, topped on a mountain of roast beef and underneath all of that meat, there's a bed of rice. Roast beef dons are all the rage in Japan right now.

Lastly...

Japan, you've done it again. Gudetama is strangely endearing and people just can't seem to get enough of him. Make sure to pay a visit to this Gudameme Cafe in Tokyo!
