LUCUA 1100 “MAX BRENNER CHOCOLATE BAR LUCUA OSAKA STORE”
For today’s lunch I took part in a reception at the “MAX BRENNER CHOCOLATE BAR LUCUA OSAKA STORE”, a chocolate bar and café that opened on April 2nd, 2015, on the second floor of the LUCUA 1100 building in Umeda.
This is the Western Japan début of the globally popular chocolate brand whose three shops in Tokyo have had several-hour waiting lines for days on end!
Instead of eating chocolate as you normally would, this café lets you enjoy various ways of eating and interpreting chocolate, providing never-before-seen “chocolate entertainment.”
This is something that should grab hold of the hearts of women (^^
Just looking at the menu is exciting, but today I had a set menu that held the very essence of this café!
MAX FAVORITE PARTY PLATE ¥3,000
This one full dish includes a chocolate fondue set.
Because the volume is amazing, it is perfect for two or three people to share, and I think that the price is affordable as well.
On top of a waffle, there is a banana that is coated in caramel, and on top of that there is a big scoop of chocolate ice cream, and it is served with a sweet caramel sauce!
Your mouth is filled with a sweetness that is almost overwhelming!
It would probably be unbearable for someone who loves sweet things (^^
One specialty of the café is chocolate pizza, which is made with plenty of milk chocolate and white chocolate on a pizza crust, with lots of toasted marshmallows spread on top of that!
It is surprisingly not too sweet, and the savory marshmallows and chocolate are wonderfully matched!
Plenty of hazelnut chocolate and strawberries are wrapped in a crepe. This is a gem that is full of a sense of playfulness, and it can be eaten as is, or you can top it with the chocolate sauce and pieces of chocolate that accompany the dish!
It appears that MAX BRENNER has no rules for how it should be eaten, so it seems that you can eat it all in any way that you like (^^
While this is also definitely sweet, the collaboration of the chocolate and the strawberries is excellent!
Whether eating or drinking, it is all sweet, and there is no escaping it (^^;
“Classic European Fondue”
Liquid chocolate that is warmed by solid fuel, marshmallows, strawberries, and a grill with solid fuel all come with the set.
When I roast the marshmallows, and the surface starts to sizzle as it browns, a sweet fragrance fills the air!
When I put some warm chocolate on a marshmallow and eat it…
And when I put some chocolate on a strawberry and eat it…
While it is sweet, it goes well together and is delicious!
“Iced Chocolate Drink”
This is sweet as well (^^
With such things as a “BYO Cake” (¥2,000) that you can decorate as you like, or a “Chocolate Syringe” (¥600), the café is definitely full of a sense of playfulness (^^
For chocolate lovers, the opening of this café is something that they have long waited for!
One should expect that there will likely be long lines every day, but by all means please do go to enjoy the “chocolate entertainment” (^^
