Really surprised no one thought of this sooner. Turns out Japan is the home of the brand-new Pokemon restaurant called the Pikachu Cafe. Located in downtown Tokyo, the Pokemon-inspired eatery recently opened, driving fans of the 20-year-old franchise through the doors.
The Pikachu Cafe is decked out with tons of Pokemon art, mostly in promotion of the new movie Pokemon XY. Customers purchase tickets for the dishes they wish to order via vending machines. They then give their tickets to the cashier and place their orders.
While the wait is pretty long (expect up to 90 minutes), the novelty is probably enough to keep you inside until you’re ready to eat. Among the dishes are the Pikachu Teriyaki Burger, Pikachu Curry and Pikachu One Million-Volt Parfait.
Seemingly a regular teriyaki burger, the Pikachu burger is dressed to maximum cuteness. With tortilla chips as ears and the famous Pocket Monster’s face branded into the bun.
Similarly, the Pikachu Curry also features the popular Pokemon as the centerpiece of the dish. Mix with tumeric to give it a distinct yellow flavor, the rice is shaped into Pikachu’s head. Don’t expect anything too spicy either.
Finally for dessert, the One Million Volt Parfait is a mango pudding molded into the shape of the electric Pokemon’s head. It’s then layered with strawberry jam, whipped cream, fruit and corn flakes. Nothing out of this world, but cute.
Regardless, definitely something unique Pokemon fans off all ages should check out. Provided they can afford the trip out to Japan.
