Japanese sushi chain Kura Sushi has opened up this new outlet in Harajuku, just across from Laforet shopping mall. But you’ll quickly notice this outlet is a little different from all the rest.For starters, the staff are dressed in pink outfits and the interior is decked out with paper lantern walls and ukiyo-e art to match Harajuku’s eclectic style. Plus, along with the usual line up of sushi, this shop also offers Western-style rolls like the red dragon, golden crunch and tiger shrimp rolls (¥264) for a limited time.
That’s not all, though. You’ll find a separate section inside Kura Sushi Harajuku serving up the brand’s first-ever crêpes. The bright pink crêpes come in standard dessert flavours like maple syrup butter (¥280), chocolate and nuts (¥280) or strawberry double cream (¥380). Or you can go for something savoury with one of the frankly bizarre ‘sushi crêpes’. The sushi crêpes come in tuna mayo or iberico pork flavour, both of which have fried sushi rice wrapped inside.
If you’re not in the mood for a crêpe, there’s also soft serve ice cream and parfaits available too. You can take your food to-go, or eat out on the balcony with a clear view over the city.
