It’s always tea time.
Ever wish you could fall down the rabbit hole with Alice and enter the whimsical Wonderland? Wish no more, for there is a place on earth where you can experience all that lovable madness – to be more specific, at Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo, located at the heart of Japan’s busy capital, Shinjuku.
From the hotel that introduced the highly coveted Hello Kitty guest rooms in 2014, Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo recently launched special themed menus surrounding the 1865 classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. These menus are available at three different F&B establishments within its premises, including the Cocktail and Tea Lounge, French and Italian restaurant Duo Fourchettes, and all-day dining restaurant Jurin.
At the Cocktail and Tea Lounge, you can expect unique cocktails prepared by bartender Yuki Kato, the grand champion of the Tokyo Governor Award at the 8th Cocktail Competition held by the Hotel Barmen’s Association Tokyo Branch. Meanwhile, at Duo Fourchettes, tuck in to Chef Toshiyuki Tomokuni’s specially created heart-shaped homemade pastas and diamond-shaped margarita pizzas.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will definitely go gaga over the dessert buffet at Jurin. Named Alice’s Sweets Party, the dessert buffet consists of 30 types of decadent sweet bites designed after certain characters and elements from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, such as playing cards and twins Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Check out the jaw-dropping spread!
If you’re game, you can even choose to wear Alice-inspired costumes and accessories provided by the restaurant to truly immerse yourself in the Mad Tea Party experience!
These themed menus are available for a limited time only, from October 1 to January 31, 2017. Opened in 1971, Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo was Japan’s first skyscraper hotel. It is strategically located in Shinjuku, and comprises 1,437 guest rooms (including eight Hello Kitty rooms), 15 restaurants and seven bars. For more information, visit http://www.keioplaza.com.
