Streets Saturday for Week 1 (2014)

On the last day of the year my wife, a lover of all things Sanrio, met for lunch at a newly-opened Hello Kitty-themed restaurant in the downtown area of Taipei. Afterward, she wanted to take advantage of our location and year-end sales and do some shopping. I waited patiently in front and took pictures of the sidewalk traffic, making sure not to wander to far just in case she wanted my opinion on something.

Quotes intentional.



Kiko’s Diner, Taipei. Sanrio-Approved Hello Kitty Done With Taste! 1

Taipei now has a second officially Sanrio-approved eatery and, thankfully, it involves far less pink. In fact, there’s no pink at all. Kiko’s Diner in Taipei soft-opened about a week ago and is set to have it’s grand opening January 1st. Contrary to it’s older sister Hello Kitty Sweets, which sits just a couple of blocks away, Kiko’s Diner is less of a novelty-themed restaurant and is more in the style of a business lunch restaurant in both appearance and menu items.

Boyfriends and spouses of the Sanrio-obsessed need not fear.

Theres nothing connecting these images together beyond the fact that they were all taken on the same day within the same general area.

Lets get started.
