Welcome to the Pokemon Cafe

If your love for Nintendo's Pokemon franchise is so great that you want little pocket monsters in your belly, the newly opened Pokemon Cafe in Singapore might just be the place for you.

Beware the volcano...

The Pokemon Cafe seats 60 people and features a tropical theme, thus sharing a palm tree aesthetic with the Pokemon Sun and Moon games released earlier this month.

Big shoes to fill

Singapore was also host a Pokemon pop-up cafe earlier in the year with opening wait times reaching five hours.

A verdict...

Here we've got the "I love Pikachu Patty," complete with "Pikachu's favourite ketchup." The food did fit the Pokemon theme in appearance. Taste, though, was another matter.

Old faithful

Here's the cafe's "fish 'n' fries," with seafood straight out of the Alola region, apparently.

All style no substance?

From my time in the cafe, I discovered that it's a place for Pokemon lovers -- not food lovers.

Finally

If you've ever wanted Pikachu with your jelly, this is the place.

Drink it down

The electric critter is also drinkable in the form of an iced latte.

Giving you a buzz

That's a cute, caffeinated face.

Sugar high

Pikachu is even sweeter in cake form. This dish is confusingly named "Volt Tackle is Strong."

Pokebuns

Feel like your life could use a level up? This ice cream sandwich comes with a rare candy on the side.

Move over, Pikachu

The restaurant also Exeggcutes an Iced Island Tea.

Exeggccute...get it?

This is the second Pokemon Cafe to grace Singapore this year. The country has also played host to a Hello Kitty cafe, a Gudetama cafe and a Friends cafe.
