Meanwhile in Tokyo…
A zombie-themed restaurant based on the Resident Evil video game (and endorsed by CapCom) will be opening in July. The name? Biohazard Cafe and Grill S.T.A.R.S. Restaurant. Salivating already, aren’t you.
Nothing yet on whether they’ll actually be serving brains, but there will be merchandising (oh yes, there will be merchandising) and… dance performances? Thriller, perhaps.
Apparently they do have a grasp on reality (sort-of), since the restaurant is only supposed to be open for a year. Strangely enough, this is not the only restaurant with a game based menu; Capcom Bar features food tied to multiple games, Resident Evil (known as Biohazard in Japan) among them. Brain shaped cake, anyone? Bet the waiters get sick and tired of hearing “Braaaaaains” when they ask for orders.
So, would you go to a zombie restaurant? I can see a bar, but a restaurant? What video game would translate well into a themed eatery?
