Japan prides itself in unusual cafes and cultural things, but one cafe that is opening up is starting to make wave around the country and even get attention all over the world. According to an article found on reddit and written by Grub Street, in order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Super Mario Brothers series, Japan as popped up a bunch of themed cafes that serve many food items to accurately represent characters and icons from the famous video games.
There is an omelette shaped like the unforgettable star, a latte that features some Super Mario art, and even a Princess Peach panna cotta that is without doubt going to get people excited. These foods are really fantastic and done very well artistically, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that they are being made in their home country of Japan. If i happened to be over there right now I would surely seek one of these cafes out so that I could get a taste of nostalgia through one of these delicious treats. Brad Reifler (reuters.com) agrees that it is a very clever idea on the creator’s part as many of the adults in this generation remember playing the games over the last 30 years or so. In fact, it is really hard to believe that the game series and characters have been around that long already. Hopefully some of the items remain permanent, but for now it is just a special temporarily out.
