QPot Cafe Secret Room Special Dining experience – Desserts that look like real savory food!

The Q-Pot Cafe Secret Room (http://www.q-pot.jp/shop/cafe/rooms/) or as they like to call it “SeQert Room” is a well known secret. It’s a full course of desserts that look like different types of savory food. In order to enjoy the “seqert room” You have to reserve on-line with a credit card. The card is charged and there is never a bill you see when dining.

This is a dessert, read more about what’s in it below.  :bow:

Alice and I had been planning to do it for a while, but we finally decided for a busy Sunday afternoon. Since it’s so hard not to wait for a good seat at Q-Pot Cafe on a Sunday, then our private room dining experience should feel even more fancy.

We opted for the Q-Pot Cafe Secret Room Full Course (SE“Q”RET ROOMフルコース) for 5,250 yen a person ($53 USD). There’s also cheaper puchi plans, afternoon tea courses and fancy anniversary plans but we wanted to go full out!

To get into the Seqert Room you must ring a bell and a panel opens.

Bestie Alice and I inside the Secret Room which is right in the center of the Q-Pot Cafe. It’s a small room that only sits 4 people but feels larger because of the full mirror. Did you notice the awesome drippy chandelier?

Of course we’re all taking tons of pictures. The theme for this room is MEAT. Turkey leg wallpaper and beef cut drawings. It’s whacky but is really cute at the same time.

Alice dressed up in spooky lolita style for the event. Doesn’t she look fabulous? She totally matches the decor too! She’s pictured with our first course

Q-Pot Cafe Secret Room First Course – Caviar

“Qviar” and tooth garnish. Chocolate caviar that felt like tiny chocolate tapioca balls and tooth-shaped pancakes with a semi-sweet cream on top.

We also got a glass of non-alcoholic champagne during the event. All the Q-Pot Cafe’s large coffee and tea selection was unlimited and included during our Secret Room visit.

Secret Room Second Course – Pasta

“Magic Pasta Carbonara”. This is the one I had a hard time convincing that it was a dessert. It totally looks like Carbonara right? That egg is splendid!

The “egg” was actually yuzu in a gelatin casing and it spilled over the creamy lemon pasta. It was very refreshing. The “cheese” is white chocolate shavings.

So our waitress keeps coming in always. It feels she’s only our waitress for this special time. She asks how it is and we reply it’s delicious and sweet. She says “Oh shucks, we keep hearing that all the time. I’m so disappointed with the cook! He keeps trying to make sweet things”

It’s a really cute running joke.

Coffee was unlimited and we got their special Q-Pot Cafe Christmas latte art designs.

Of course all the silverware was tipped with the Q-Pot teapot logo.

Surprise Palette Cleanser – Salty Pasta Snacks

“Oh our chef messed up again and burnt the pasta. If you could just take this pasta it’d be great.” Ahh the running joke continues but this was so welcome! After two sweet course it was feeling a bit too much but the salty plain pasta was a wonderful palate cleanser and we crunched and got ready for more sweets.

Main Course – Meat

Whaaat? It’s meat! So rare.

It’s a “Suteki na Sutekki” that’s served at its most rare.

The blood of course is chocoalte, the meat was a combination of frozen raspberry sorbet and marshmallow with a graham cracker crust. The cooked garlic was chocolate crackle crunch.

The bread roll was actually a freeze dried orange and the mashed potatoes was a simple milk ice cream. The orange with the milk ice cream was a wonderful combination.

But we’re not done, there was actual dessert.

Apparent the SeQert Room is haunted!

After our meal our waitress  made us close our eyes and the box was opened (photo above). A cute-sounding ghost haunted our room and then was put back in the box. It was very  hard keeping our eyes closed with such silliness.

But our ghost left us something! His precious “Nantecotta Panacotta”. So delicious! We were each given a new glass container as a momento of our Q-Pot Cafe Secret Room visit along with a point card that with 10,000 yen ($100) we got a free dessert. Since we were already halfway there to $100 it was very exciting.

More copious drinks until we wanted to leave. The reservation says it’s only 90 minutes you can eat and enjoy but we did 2 hours. I don’t think there was a reservation after us.

Q-Pot Cafe Christmas themed Desserts

I really wanted to get a snowman cake, but I was too sugar-full to even think about ordering.

The Q-Pot Cafe itself is a wonderful experience but the Q-Pot Cafe Secret Room was a week-maker. It was the most delicious fun! In case you missed my previous Q-Pot Cafe post please check it out for it’s sakura desserts

    OMG, this is the cutest concept ever. LOL I really enjoyed reading this post! If I just saw pictures, I would’ve never thought it was all sweets. So expensive but it sure sounds like a great experience.

      Definitely recommended. Tokyo doesn’t have a lot of touristy things other than a few so it’s a good thing to do AND sit at :)
