Jumbo sized sundae time!
😀 Yiihaa…. Time for a wonderful, super-sized Ice Cream Sundae!!
So on Friday, me and Hikaru went out to get us a couple of jumbo-sized sundaes (in Japan they’re called parfaits) at a place she had seen reviewed on TV called “Osama to Ichigo” (王様といちご), translated to English, it means “King and Strawberry.” This particular coffee-shop is famous for its huge ice cream sundaes. They have two sizes: “Jumbo” (around 500 yen) and “King” (2100 yen). Hikaru originally wanted to try the King-size, but after asking the waitress how large it actually was (I’d say she approximated the height of the King Parfait to be around 40-50 cm!) she quickly changed her mind and we settled for a jumbo each.
Well, a Jumbo sized one was enough for me, let me tell you that! And it had been a few hours since lunch, so I was actually quite hungry too. Check out the pictures below. Although it doesn’t look to impressive in the pictures, imagine there is another 10 cm of soft ice cream on top of what’s left in the glass (I forgot to take a picture before digging in)!
Verdict? Awesome! Simple and pure ice cream heaven. It’s a no-frills-sundae consisiting of only soft ice cream, your choice of sauce (e.g. chocolate, strawberry, raspberry, blueberry etc.) and corn flakes. Nothing more, noting less. The massive amount of ice cream in it was enough for me to not care for dinner that day!
Here’s the location of Osama to Sutoroberi shown on Google Maps. The closest station is Musashi-Koyama on the Tokyu Meguro Line.
