I am so torn - on one hand styling food like this might pull Peanut #1 further out of her year long toddler picky food strike. On the other, I think only people without toddlers might actually have the time to style food like this...

Since the article is in the Daily Mail, and they aren't cracking "eating kittens at an Asian restaurant" jokes, I can only assume this is paid-for PR.

"Crowds are already flocking to the restaurant following its soft opening."

First Chinese restaurant anyway. There's already a Hello Kitty cafe in the Taipei airport.

Yes, first Chinese restaurant. I've been to HKCR (the "Hello Kitty Cafe Restaurant") in Yokohama, but they closed a few months ago.

I was going to say, there is no way this is the first Sanrio food venture.

Yeah there are plenty of Hello Kitty cafes around.There's at least one in Seoul. The one I saw is next door to a (non-Hello) cat cafe, in the Hongdae district. (And to keep the alley they're in from sounding like it was completely taken over by twee, I ought to note that upstairs of the cat cafe was a design shop called FUCKFAKE.)

You gurls DID see the Hello Kitty episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, didn't y'all?

(Link could be NSFW depending on where you work. It's the show's official web site, and the show is about drag queens, airs on a gay-themed cable network, and contains occasional sexual language and swears. If you watch the video at work, I'd use earphones.)

Last year they had HK Con in LA and it sold out. This year they're doing the Hello Kitty Supercute Friendship Festival North American Tour!!!

I would appreciate a "SL Daily Mail" warning. While I like Ms White, I am not a friend of Mr Dacre.

I really do want to visit Seoul.
