Sanrio x Energy Bistro & Karaoke
Not too long ago, Sanrio did a collaboration with a Japanese restaurant chain Curry House. The restaurant crafted a special menu that featured popular Hello Kitty character Gudetama. You may recognize him as a butt-naked anthropomorphic egg that’s perpetually lazy.
Well it looks like Sanrio is going full speed ahead with their collaborations and has just begun another team-up. This time, the popular Japanese brand has partnered with California-based Energy Bistro & Karaoke for a collaboration featuring one of their newest characters: Aggretsuko.
The metal Aggretsuko Room
Aggretsuko is a red panda that works in an accounting office in Tokyo. Because she can be somewhat of a pushover, her superiors take advantage of her and pile on deadlines. Unbelievably stressed, she dons an afterwork persona of a heavy metal karaoke singer.
Sounds pretty intense.
The deluxe Hello Kitty Starry Room
In a two-year collaboration, the karaoke bar transformed five of their 15 rooms into Hello Kitty-themed hangouts.
The eggs-cellent Gudetama Room
Each room has a design unique to a popular character in the Japanese franchise.
Along with the change in decor, Energy Bistro & Karaoke also created an entire menu based on the popular characters with the help from their own Chef Cindy who conceptualized the menu herself.
Here’s what you can order:
The karaoke bar offers a bounty of Hello Kitty themed items for customers to order and snack on while they belt their favorite tunes. Unlike the Gudetama collaboration at Curry House, each item on this menu can be ordered a la carte rather than prix fixed.
Here are the three savory options patrons can choose from.
Hello Kitty Okonomiyaki Hot Dog with fried tofu.
Gudetama Last Waffle Sandwich with sweet potato cheese tots
As for dessert, guests can choose from either Hello Kitty-shaped waffles and ice cream, or baked ube and ice cream in the shape of the titular feline.
Hello Kitty & Mimmy Waffle & Ice Cream
If you happen to be near Hacienda Heights, CA, and are an avid fan of Hello Kitty, you definitely want to check this place out. Just make sure to grab a few friends to join you in this experience. While, you definitely don’t have to sing to try the menu, you won’t get the full experience unless you immerse yourself.
Wonder what their slow jams selection looks like?
