There’s a Hello Kitty-Themed Dim Sum Restaurant in Hong Kong
Hello Kitty’s adorable pink-bow topped face seems to be everywhere these days. There’s this Hello Kitty ice cream cake, for example, and you can get Hello Kitty beer in China. The feline cartoon character (who isn’t actually a cat, by the way) even has her own farm in Hong Kong. So we really shouldn’t be surprised that a Hello Kitty-themed dim sum restaurant just opened in Hong Kong. You can nosh on dumplings emblazoned with Hello Kitty’s sweet visage.
Hello Kitty Chunanoki opened in Yaumatei earlier this month, according to Kotaku, and is overflowing with references to the famous Japanese cartoon character. There are 37 Hello Kitty-inspired dim sum menu items, and even the chopstick holders and wallpaper are themed. You may feel a twinge of guilt chowing down on custard-filled steamed buns and pork bao, because they’re shaped like the beloved character. Little pink bows are everywhere — on the backs of chairs, and on your teapot — and the restaurant is filled with intricate Hello Kitty artwork.
The cuteness overload is not for the steel-hearted, and the café will likely only appeal to superfans.
