Until October 9, Curious George Cafe

Curious George swings into Tokyo to hang out at the vibrant Miyashita Park in Shibuya. The mischievous monkey of our memories graces the menu, napping under an egg-laden blanket in an omurice bowl, floating atop cream sodas, and reclining on a “beach” of luscious seafood pasta, sheltered by a cocktail umbrella. With its imaginative and endearing offerings, this spot becomes a delightful choice for a lighthearted city lunch, capturing the essence of the cartoon’s original creativity and charm.
