One of the problems with game-themed food is that sometimes, but not always, it looks clumsy. Recreating stuff with food is hard! Why have the edibles do all the work?

As Yukawa Net reports, Japan’s Kirby Cafes current menu is getting a new array of additional meals. The food previously served looked good, but the establishments are upping their tableware game.

“Kirby Ceramics”

I know it’s possible to deck out an entire kitchen with Pokemon-ware, but danged if I don’t want an entire Kirby kitchen with salt and pepper shakers, Meta-Knight Knife Board, mugs, and more.

C’mon Nintendo!  Hit up the execs at places like Target or Bed, Bath, & Beyond and make this happen!  You KNOW we’d buy it!
