Super Mario Bros. Cafes to Open In Japan
posted on by Carlos Cadorniga
In celebration of the 30-year anniversary of the very first Super Mario Bros. game, the world-renowned Nintendo franchise is teaming up with Tower Records to open up special Mario-themed cafes in various Japanese cities for a limited time.
Known as the Super Mario Brothers x Tower Records Cafe, this new eatery will take over locations at Tower Records Shibuya, Omotesandō, and Ebisu.
Naturally, the cafes will feature many dishes stylized after various elements from the game, with each store presenting their own unique theme dish. Pictured above is the Super Star Omurice from the Omotesandō store; this star-shaped chicken omurice dish presents the egg in the shape of the invincibility-inducing Super Star item that Mario uses to plow through Goombas and Koopas alike. Shibuya will serve the Blooper (gesso in Japan) Squid Ink Pasta, likely in the shape of the floating squid enemy from underwater levels. Meanwhile, Ebisu will serve up the Koopa Taco Rice, promising the dish to be on the spicy side.
Furthermore as part of the Super Summer Sale, any purchase of 3,000 yen (about US$24) or more of any Super Mario Bros. x Tower Records products will come with a scratch card that can be used as a coupon for the cafes.
The Shibuya cafe will open on June 23 and close on July 1. The Omotesando and Ebisu locations will officially open on June 22 and close on July 5.
