Bo-Lo’Gne Cafe and Bar (Hong Kong)- Celebrating Doraemon’s 100th Anniversary… I Ate the Iconic ‘Memory Bread’!

Just a forewarning, this post will probably only appeal to
people who know of this famous iconic Japanese cartoon,
Doraemon (aka Ding Dong). *Squee!*

 
When I was in Hong Kong, it just so happened to be Doraemon’s
100
th Anniversary and Bo-Lo’Gne Cafe and Bar (located in Harbour
City, Tsim Tsa Tsui) revamped their entire restaurant to celebrate the occasion
with a Doraemon inspired menu!
 
I grew up watching Doraemon (it is one of my favourite childhood
cartoons) so I was absolutely in LOVE with this concept! Even though I am a big
fan, I still am not as big of a fan as this guy over here who wore a
Doraemon t-shirt while dining here. O.O * btw, I totally feel
like a creeper right now*
 
Most people who dine here order the Spaghetti Set ($128 RMB/ ~$18 CAD) which comes with Memory Bread (Trivia: who knows what is
memory bread in the Doraemon series?! :D), Tiramisu, and your choice of
spaghetti.
 
Polly ordered a latte and it came with a picture of Dai Hong or Nobita. She said the latte
was average but she ordered it knowing it was purely for novelty.
 
This was the Spaghetti Set and when I first saw this I was
so giddy! I felt like a child again. 😛
 
I chose the Mentaiko
Spaghetti
and it was honestly average at be
st. The portion was also very
small so I finished it in a few bites.
 
This is the famous Memory Bread from Doraemon! If you are a
fan of the series, you will know what this is. This bread appeared in Season 2,
episode 3 where Doraemon gives Nobita the bread to help him study for an exam,
but he eventually ate so much bread that he threw it all up in the end.
 
I knew coming in that the food here lacked in quality so I
didn’t expect greatness from their tiramisu. I was glad my expectations were
low because this was not very good. Again, this was more of a novelty
item so I still thoroughly enjoyed eating my Doraemon shaped cookie. 😀
 
Bo-Lo’Gne also sells the bread that they used for the “Memory
Bread” in loaves. Apparently, they are known for being “Denmark bread”.
 
All in all, I had a wonderful time listening to Doraemon theme music while dining on Doraemon themed food even though it was overpriced and not incredibly tasty. I admit, I am a sucker for falling into this marketing trap, but oh well! 😛
 
Happy Eating!

    Not to be nitpicky, but Doraemon is a Japanese cartoon, not Hong Kong.

    I'm also a big fan 🙂

    So what did the guy have to do to win a T-shirt?
    And also what is that white bun thing with what I think is seaweed powder in the form of Doraemon's head?

    I think he bought it on his own actually. 😛 And it was actually a piece of 'meh' tasting round cheese with seaweed powder.
