Hello Cougar

Can you believe Hello Kitty is 35 years old? She doesn't look a day over three.

The Three Apples exhibit at the Royal/T Cafe celebrated all things Hello Kitty for a few weeks. Glam, Wandering Chopsticks, and I successfully avoided all the crowds on a Thursday night earlier this month. While other people waited for hours and hours on weekends, we just sauntered right in.

I'll start with the Hello Kitty-themed food that we ate.

Hello Kitty's Kawaii High Tea ($25).

This assortment of sweets and savory canapes was pricey, but oh so cute.

It wasn't the greatest food, but we enjoyed it for the fun factor.

Wandering Chopsticks is stealth. That's why she is Princess Heartface here.

Super Yummy Waffles ($7).

That was the menu's description, not mine. Again, cuter than it was tasty.

In addition to Hello Kitty treats, WC and I shared kobe beef sliders served three ways -- quail egg up, tomato chutney, and bleu cheese with caramelized onions ($12).

Not bad. #3 was my fave.

Glam noshed on a grilled miso chicken salad ($10).

The chicken was tender, moist, and steeped in miso -- best dish of the night.

And now I present more Hello Kitty than you can shake a stick at.

Yeah, I'm a dork who wore my Tarina Tarantino Pink Head Gothic Lolita necklace to a Hello Kitty event. It was kinda like the time I wore Patagonia in Patagonia.

  1. You're a dork for more reasons than that. Meanwhile, I now can't see anything Hello Kitty without thinking of how I can get it over to you or Wan.

  2. OMG, ok now I'm just going to have to move to where ever you live! I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Hello Kitty and this place is a dream come true for me! I love everything HK. Lucky girl.

  3. What? How could you reveal me like that? Now when people see an Asian girl walking around with a tiara and big pink heart, they'll know she's me!

    I had fun hanging with you and Glam! We'll have to do it again soon.

  4. Who would have thought that a salad would be the best dish of the night?
