Welcome to the art of kawaii food with Sanrio characters!

Another great thing about living in Hong Kong is that you may easily come across kawaii-themed food!  Here we show you some images of sweet treats and dishes featuring popular Sanrio characters, that we found on All About Hong Kong’s Facebook and Instagram pages.  Just take a look at the pictures below, don’t they look yummy and super cute?

As you see, some brands include Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody, Gudetama and friends in their food packages or as food decoration, while others unleash their creative cooking and baking abilities, shaping foods themselves as kawaii characters.

However, you do not need to be a professional cook or experienced patissier to give this a try.  You can easily prepare kawaii bentos that will look amazingly cute, and more so if you have some useful bento accessories.  There is a whole world of molds, cutters, seals, picks etc. available that will let you shape and decorate food.

Check out some of our bento accessories, and find the inspiration you need to get started on making your own kawaii food!

Adorable dim sum for fans of kawaii food!

Look at the amazingly cute pictures of dim sum in the shape of animals and others, we found on the Internet!  There are even pictures with dim sum that look like Miffy, Gudetama and Disney characters. Do you like them?

Some of these artistic food creations belong to diverse restaurants and eateries found around Hong Kong, and the images here are taken from the All About Hong Kong’s Facebook and Instagram pages.  Others we found on Pinterest, and clearly show kawaii animals themed food is a world trend!

Dim sum is a style of Chinese food that comes mainly from Cantonese cuisine.  It generally consists of several different dishes, served in small bite-size portions, on plates and bamboo steamer baskets.  Foods are fried, steamed, roasted etc., and usually taken with tea.  It is the perfect way to try an assortment of dishes, while sharing them with your fellow diners!

Festive dim sum on weekends with family and friends is a great tradition here, especially for breakfast or lunch.  However, you can always enjoy these delicious foods, as some varieties are readily available on street stalls and groceries.  Have you ever tried or made dim sum yourself? Check out our many bento accessories that you can use to get started on your own food art!

Gudetama free wallpapers and 5th Anniversary!

We are celebrating lots of kawaii characters’ anniversaries this Autumn, did you notice it?  Gudetama also turned five in September, and we have come across a few great celebration images to share with you!

Gudetama may likely be the most original of Sanrio’s characters in terms of personality and attitude, and this certainly adds to its popularity.   This lazy apathetic egg yolk finds life too tough, usually makes grumpy remarks, and would rather retire into his shell or curl under a slice of bacon on pretty much every occasion, out of pure existential tiredness.

As you know, kawaii mascots of every kind are most common in Japan, where eggs are also a staple food.  Sanrio decidedly found the right combination when they created this weirdly cute food mascot! 

Do take a look at some Gudetama free wallpapers here, which you will definitely enjoy if you are a Gudetama fan.  Of course, we also have great Gudetama items available in our online shop.  Which of the images below do you like best?  Tell us!

Halloween with Sanrio at Ocean Park Hong Kong

We just had to tell you about this awesome event that no doubt will draw most fans of kawaii things, living in Hong Kong!  This year, Sanrio has partnered with one of the largest theme parks in the city to celebrate Halloween!  In past years, Ocean Park Hong Kong has held the largest Halloween events in Asia, so we can easily imagine that this Hello-ween Fest will be lots of fun!

The popular Sanrio characters we all know so well will be there to meet visitors, and join in some activities mainly designed for kids.  Of course, they are all dressed up in exclusive Halloween costumes!  There is also a Sanrio themed restaurant, where incredibly cute and elaborate Halloween treats featuring their much loved characters will be served.

This first-ever Sanrio Halloween party at Ocean Park is already under way, and the premises are full of decorations and displays inspired by Hello Kitty, Kuromi, Gudetama, Pompompurin etc.  We found some great pictures of the event, and we simply had to share them with you!

Gudetama ‘Eggs-hibition’ and store in Hong Kong.

Say hello to Gudetama, one of Sanrio‘s new characters. This year the lazy little egg came out of his shell to surprise customers in Hong Kong’s busy shopping area Mong Kok. Together with a pop-up store, fans can explore truly ‘egg-cellent’ exhibits, including a kawaii Gudetama themed bakery, a commuter train and Japanese restaurants. As the pictures from the Hong Kong website unwire show, there are also some special limited edition products on sale until September. However, fans of Gudetama and Hello Kitty don’t need to go egg-hunting, but can find their favorite Sanrio characters at modes4u.

New Sanrio friends and Hello Kitty fabrics in our shop

Great news for all fans of Hello Kitty, My Melody and Little Twin Stars.  We received cute new Sanrio fabrics and the little white cat brought along new friends. Meet Kirimi-chan the cute Salmon fillet and Gudetama the lazy egg. At first glimpse they may not seem as kawaii and cuddly as her other pals, but their authenticity makes up for it. Tasty looking Kirimi-chan was introduced after Sanrio fans hungry for more, voted her ‘most wanted character‘, while no other egg in the world can reflect our unmotivated mood like inert Gudetama. Therefore, we are convinced that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
