Tokyo Restaurants Offer Limited Evangelion Menu Items
posted on by Egan Loo
Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The Cure Maid Café in Tokyo's Akihabara otaku shopping district is updating and reviving its Eva Cafe menu until May 18 to mark the April 25 DVD release of the Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone film in Japan. One of the restored menu items is the LCL Drink (pictured at right): orange juice served in a bonus Puka-Puka Rei-chan tumbler glass. It serves Sachiel Pasta (squid-ink pasta with a cheese angel head and a cherry tomato, pictured below) and a Dialogue and Character Name Cheesecake (cake with random dialogue lines and character names written on top). It also offers an Asuka cocktail (orange juice with pomegranate syrup) and a Rei cocktail (grapefruit juice with Blue Hawaii syrup).
The Pasela chain of Japanese restauants is offering a partly different Evangelion menu until May 25. For the Eva Honey Toast, the cafe takes its house specialty (a stack of honey-soaked toast, pictured below) and tops it with a crucified Lilith angel and NERV logo. It also offers Sachiel Pasta, Misato's Curry Ramen, and a pitcher of draft beer with the bonus Rei tumbler glass. The Akihabara branch of the chain replaces Eva Honey Toast with White Wing Honey Toast and adds "dessert of Zaruel."
