Eat your potato chips freshly fried at Harajuku’s new Calbee+ shop

Calbee+ serves freshly fried potato chips and soft serve in Harajuku

On December 7th, Calbee, a leading potato chip manufacturer in Japan, opened a new restaurant in Harajuku called Calbee+. Here, you can choose your very own Calbee potato chips from the menu and it will be made upon order.

Japan has had several food theme parks in the past, including: Yokohama’s Ramen Museum and Curry Museum, Namco’s Ice Cream City and Dessert Republic, and Jiyugaoka’s Sweet Forest. At these theme parks, you can try out small portions of food from the satellite shops of popular restaurants around Japan built inside the park.

Calbee+ is closer to a fast-food restaurant than a park. However, Calbee+ still provides the same enjoyment of eating good food and regret of over-stuffing yourself.

Calbee+’s menu include freshly fried potato chips, “poteriko” (Calbee’s take on french fries), croquettes, soft serves, and a variety of topping and flavor options.

You can even combine the chips with the soft serve and create yourself a sweet and savory sundae.

Their shop also sells packaged chips in unreleased flavors, as well as, chip-related goods like containers for unfinished chips.

Finally, here’s a pro tip if you’re interested in checking it out: if you decide to go, be sure to order one item at a time, finish your food, then go for seconds. Otherwise, you’ll risk letting the novelty of hot, freshly fried potato chips go to waste.
