Earlier this month, we alerted you to the opening of a Tokyo Ghoul café in Japan… Now, we thought we’d drop a quicklocation and menu update.
The Tokyo Ghoul café will be located in THE GUEST, a café and diner on the seventh floor of the Ikebukuro PARCO cafe in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro neighborhood. This is the same location that hosted Your Name. and Prince of Tennis themed cafés in the past.
Most importantly, we now know what each stomach-churning dish looks like (which… may or may not disappoint you). I know this café is long anticipated… But I’m just going to say it. This meal doesn’t excite me that much. The food reminds me of my childhood lunchtime cafeteria. You decide:
First, we have the Kaneki’s One-Eyed Curry. This dish comes with something extra special (and I don’t mean the eyeball cut out). Customers who order this dish get to try on a replica of his mask and take a commemorative photo.
Then comes Hinami’s Hamburger Steak. It is coated in a marvelous red sauce and is served with pretty realistic looking dismembered fingers (The café claims they’re sausages…right).
Then comes a rather sketchy looking meal. The Can You Really Eat It…? Burger. It comes wrapped in a brown paper bag, much like the meat given to Kaneki by Yoshimura.
But as weird as that package is, at least it isn’t named the Bad-Tasting Sandwich. It’s “only” an egg salad sandwich, probably playing off the fact that human food is disgusting to ghouls.
The most normal looking entree is Amon’s Kakeage Udon. I honestly don’t know what to tell you about this one. It’s normal.
If you’re thirsty, don’t worry, the Tokyo Ghoul café has what you desire.
You can parch your thirst with the Rc Cell Drink, which looks remarkably like the bloody substance the ghouls consume to survive…
But if you’re a good customer and you finish all your “food”, you can choose from a beautiful variety of amazingly crafted desserts.
If you’re a big fan of Tokyo Ghoul and find yourself in theÂ Ikebukuro area, you ought to try the ghoulish meal – Let me know how it tastes…. I have my doubts.
