15 Japanese Pop Culture Restaurants You Didn’t Know Existed
Dancing robots, anime decorations, ninja chefs, bizarre food, and music so loud your eardrum may burst. Nothing is more exciting than the top fifteen Japanese pop culture restaurants you didn’t know existed. Many are in Japan, but others are found worldwide as homage to the unique pop culture that comes from the infamous Asian islands.
Biohazard Cafe & Grill (Tokyo, Japan)
The Resident Evil themed restaurant boasts a Resident Evil menu, scantily dressed S.T.A.R.S. waitresses, and zombie fighting weapons along the wall.
Robot Restaurant (Tokyo, Japan)
This is not your ordinary robot experience… but then again, what is? At Robot Restaurant, you can experience “fembots” dancing and performing through neon lights while you enjoy a bite to eat.
Maid Cafe (New York City, USA)
In Japan, a maid café is a subcategory of cosplay restaurants where waitresses dress in maid costumes and act as servants. Playing on this idea, New York brings you an anime-themed café that serves green tea sweets, rice balls, and beef bowls.
Hello Kitty Dreams Restaurant (Beijing, China)
Naturally it is entirely pink-themed with an emphasis on the cartoon character, Hello Kitty.
Cannibalistic Sushi (Tokyo, Japan)
It’s exactly as it sounds… you will become a cannibal for the night. At this unusual seafood restaurant in Tokyo, guests “perform surgery” on food in the shape of humans while extracting what they’d like to eat.
