As Pokemon ballooned into an ubiquitous behemoth of a series in Japan, perhaps it seemed as though they left their early 2000s competitors, Digimon, in the dust. But not so, the digital monsters are still adventuring with new movies and other content being released every year. There’s also plenty of people who still harbor fond childhood memories of the animated series.
The Digimon cafe in Tokyo will give Digimon fans the character-inspired menu they deserve. The eatery was announced to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the animated series.
Rather than a literal interpretation, most of the dishes are inspired by the colors and characteristics of each individual Digimon.
Having said that, the Agumon meat stew (photo above) is pretty on the nose.
But Gabumon’s horned burger is more subtly influenced by the character design.
As is Gatomon's holy ring bagel sandwich.
Palmon and Biyomon's cake plate.
Patamon's orange parfait.
There's also special celebratory latte art available.
Naturally, there will be exclusive goods on sale and all customers get the gift of a character card.
The first round will take place in the Omotesando Tower Records Cafe, from July 13-21, at which point the menu will be switched up for round two which will take place from July 22-31.
Full menu, goods and prices available on the Tower Records website.
