This blog post is for all my anime fans out there. The anime café Dream Mansion in Penang, Japan, is the first in that part of town. The café is located near the Skynet at Lebuh Thye Sin. Of course, there are already several anime cafés in Japan like the ones in Tokyo such as the Gundam Café, the Final Fantasy Eorzea Café, Café de Miki with Hello Kitty, and others.
Now this place in Penang has a few different corners that represent different anime shows like the One Piece corner that has a foot-long display of One Piece figurines. It also has a Gundam corner as well that features your favorite mecha characters. If you wish to have a real Japanese dining experience, then the Tatami section is for you. In this section, you take off your shoes and sit on the floor to eat. They have a classroom corner that is set to the classroom theme from, Assassination Classroom. Another corner is the reading corner that holds tons of Manga
The food there is big: literally. Their ice cream sundae comes in a giant glass bowl filled with twelve scoops of ice-cream, marshmallows, pocky, strawberries, and whip-cream that sits on top of chocolate pudding. The beverages include the salted caramel macchiato, ice blood chocolate, and the Perverted Cyborg. The food includes the mentaiko series of okakiage (a type of fried fish), mentaiko spaghetti, and the grilled salmon. Other foods include the mapo tofu, curry rice with grilled salmon, the miso ramen with ebi fry and the Temari Bento that has several sushi options.
If you don’t know the rules of sushi eating, you are supposed to eat from the top row and work your way down, so you can eat the lightest to the heaviest of sushi. I think I’d mainly go to this café to eat the dessert and read the manga. That’s all for this blog post. ‘til next time.
