Tokyo Is Opening a Super Mario Bros Cafe
Level up with a Peach Panna Cotta or Bowser Taco Rice.
June 12, 2015
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.
