It’s a place called Sweets Paradise. It’s an all-you-can eat dessert restaurant, and for those who enjoy sweets it must be basically heaven on earth!
Sweets Paradise is like a chubby kid’s dream come true. The premise or “CHALLENGE” is simple: you pay ¥1,480 (about $15.00) and they give you 90 minutes to gorge yourself into a diabetic coma on, as the sign says, Cake! Pasta! Sandwich! Drink!
A quick guide to visitors to Japan on a budget (or lovers of all-you-can-eat deals in general) here are the characters to look out for when scanning restaurant signage
The characters 食べ放題 (tabehoudai) mean “all you can eat.
” Similarly, the characters 飲み放題 (nomihoudai) mean “all you can drink.”
The characters バイキング (baikingu) mean “Viking” and is a slang Japanese term that refers to a “buffet.”
“Dessert Viking” is the theme at Sweets Paradise. The term “Viking” probably has its origins in the more appropriate Swedish word, “Smörgåsbord.”
V says everything is delicious…I hope to check it out on my next trip to Tokyo, of course after my sushi fix and midnight ramen run.
