Our next stop of otaku trip was to stop by Akihabara Gundam Cafe for dining ^_^ The cafe is situated just beside Akihabara train station so it would be an easy find. From a distance, you would noticed that the cafe is directly below the railway track. It's a common sight to see shops or eateries below railway track in tokyo. It's a way the Japanese maximized land use in this urbanized city where land is scarce. Visitors can check and grand menu before enter... Menu is written mainly in Japs but the pricing won't scare you away... Trust me, it's definitely cheaper than maid cafe... heehee...
If you ain't patronizing, you can also take photos with the human size statue outside the cafe or pick up a souvenir or two at the section beside. The theme of Gundam Cafe would change from time to time and during our visit, it was metallic coat Char's custom Zaku II welcoming us. Once you entered the premises, you would be amazed by the decoration and Gundam artifacts that blends with it.
The menu are really interesting as every dish was nicely designed to Gundam series or a particular Mobile Suit. Like the fried tomato rice in the shape of Char's Custom Zaku II, two circular cakes on a plate to resemble 00 and chicken wings protruded from the side of plate for Wing Gundam. Very idea for those radishes and carrots to be cut into the shape of Zeon or E.F.S.F logo.
The most unforgettable experience I had @ Gundam Cafe was visiting the loo! Check out the video I had uploaded for what happened in the toilet! Gundam eyes glow from the mirror and automated toilet bowl! Never before have I seen such high tech toilet! Stunning to the max!!!
