ANA Foods Co., Ltd. has opened a dessert bar “JANICE WONG” for the first
time in Japan at NEWoMan, a commercial facility of Shinjuku Station’s New
South Exit Area on the 15th April 2016.
“JANICE WONG”, a dessert bar opening in Japan offers a new experience, a combination of plated dessert dishes and alcohol as the main beverage. Plated desserts are prepared right in front of guests thanks to an open kitchen, which is directly connected with counter seats for diners to watch. Adventurous and playful Janice gives each dessert its own story for the pursuit of women’s delight. “JANICE WONG” will provide diners the opportunity to truly relax and be entertained in the environment where everything is made to be a work of art through an experience that redefines the genre.
This shop facing Koshu Kaido and in line with JR Shinjuku stations Koshu Kaido ticket gates fascinates passers with the dessert styling on show in the kitchen. The chic and mellow space comes from extensive use of Janice Wong's signature black motif accented with the multicolored desserts. There is also a warm coziness as the interior and chef and customer come together as a single creation. The unified kitchen and counter kitchen gives diners front row seats to the creation process, enhancing their expectations of taste and heralding a whole new dessert experience.
As a chef/artist I am drawn to create beautiful desserts and art. Japan is a country with a strong, unique identity which helps individuals push themselves to do more than what they can imagine themselves of doing. Japan has inspired me greatly with beauty and never fails to amaze with the array of beautiful ingredients. I look forward to giving back to Japan through my deserts, with the beauty that inspired me from the beginning.
At Janice Wong MGM, sweet dreams are made of these: homemade Italian gelato; dainty pastries and tarts; sublime cakes and eclairs; an amazing array of handmade chocolates; and one of the biggest chocolate fountains in the world.
Janice Wong MGM is the vision of Janice Wong, voted Asia’s Best Pastry Chef for 2013 and 2014 at the prestigious San Pellegrino Asia Top 50, as well as Pastry Chef of the Year in 2011, 2013 and 2015 by World Gourmet Summit.
Janice Wong MGM is a sweets shop where customers can observe a live chocolate, crepe and dessert station, take out confectioneries and pastries or dine in for a sweet dessert experience. It is also the place for artisanal coffee and tea, as well as delectable savory items, which can be shared on a charming terrace surrounded by the Spectacle digital display and beside one of the biggest chocolate fountains in the world – a 7.3-meter high sculpture spouting rivers of dark, milk and white chocolate.
Visionary, artist, author, culinary stylist and photographer, Chef Janice Wong says, “Your world is your imagination. I am driven by a continuous pursuit of perfection and reflecting an appreciation for imperfection in my craft. This pastry concept I have created is the epitome of the pastry dream where one can smell, taste and feel all things sweet. It is the modern day sweets wonderland marrying pastry and art together.”MENU
