Japan Finally Opens Official Pikachu Cafe

If you have kids, or have been a kid, you no doubt know of Pikachu and his Pokemon brethren. These collectible little scamps are everywhere, cheerfully fulfilling their duties as enslaved gladiators. Finally, Japan is recognizing their contributions to society by giving their mascot Pikachu its very own restaurant.

Tokyo's Pikachu Cafe is your one-stop shop for Pikachu-related grub, including Pika-burgers, Pika-curry and delicious bowls of Pika-cream. The menu items are even made to look like the electricity-loving rodent-type creature. Burger buns are stamped with his face and ice cream desserts are lovingly molded into his likeness. It's pretty bizarre.

Now the bad news. This is a limited-time cafe, meaning that you have until August 31st to get to Japan and get yourself a Pika-burger.
