Tokyo Is Opening a Super Mario Bros Cafe

Level up with a Peach Panna Cotta or Bowser Taco Rice.

We thought Pikachu-themed pop-ups were the pop culture pinnacle for Japan. But once again, the country's beating us all at the cool, novelty shit game. This one truly levels things up, with a new pop-up inspired by Super Mario Bros.. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the immortal video game, Tokyo is getting an adorable Mario-themed pop-up restaurant.

Running June 22 to July 5 and run by Tower Records, the pop-up will serve up a menu inspired by our plumbing video game hero and his crew (yep, even that dastardly Bowser). Punters can chow down on Peach Panna Cotta, a Piranha Plant Soda, Bowser Castle Drink or Ground Stage Waffle, all of which are guaranteed to double your size and allow you to jump on Goomba heads like a boss. But no giant mushrooms to eat? Come on guys.

Anyway, let's peruse the menu shall we?

First, pick up your Super Star Omelette (and run madly around the pop-up for ten seconds):


Slam a cap with Mario latte art:


Give it back to the Koopa Troopas with whatever comes out of this Question Block Tiramisu:


You could battle it out with Bowser Taco Rice:


And finish things up by rescuing the Peach Panna Cotta from going uneaten.
