A Le Loic: Inspired gelato comes to Tokyo Disney

The Ikspiari shopping center right outside of Tokyo Disneyland houses a nice range of forgettable chain restaurants and trendier food options. The area’s newest dessert arrival falls squarely in the latter.

Gelato store A Le Loic opened last week with a simple but memorable selection of the Italian dessert on sale. At the moment, it sells Earl Grey-fig, mango, caramel vanilla and strawberry flavors. These can be enjoyed in a cone or cup, either as a single (¥340 before tax) or a double offering (¥440 before tax).

So far, pretty standard. Really, though, you should live it up and get multiple of these tasty flavors combined in a crepe (¥490 to ¥640 before tax, depending on what you stuff in there). Better yet, embrace the holiday spirit with the limited-edition Christmas Noel crepe (¥640 before tax), which features pistachio and raspberry gelato with sweet whipped cream. It’s the best combination of tastes at A Le Loic, and offers something slightly elevated from the usual gelato experience.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
