Gundam Cafe Taunts Fans Outside of Japan With Delicious Mobile Suit Biscuits

Bandai’s new Gundam Café has finally opened its doors for business in Japan, and photographic evidence suggests that overseas fans of the mobile suit franchise may want to book a flight to the Land of the Rising Sun for the sake of exclusive coffee and a fried treats.

Akihabara’s photos of the fan food may not provide true evidence of deliciousness (alas, the Internet is still waiting for successful taste transmission), but there’s something about the café’s biscuit-like Gun-Pla-yaki, which is modeled after the very first 1/144 Gundam plastic model kit ever sold, that I can’t stop marveling at. I have a feeling even if I shelled out the $1K+ airfare to Tokyo just to taste them I’d be satisfied with a cardboard-like crunch so long as I were able to hold the edible likeness of one of my favorite anime/manga icons in my grubby hands.

My obsession aside, the café looks like a rad place for Gundam fans to grab a cup of java amidst slick series deco. Hopefully one day I’ll get to visit more than just vicariously.[Via Gizmodo]
