The world’s first Chinese-style restaurant dedicated to the Japanese cartoon Hello Kitty is set to open in Hong Kong in June, 2015. This Hello Kitty-themed Chinese restaurant will feature an incredible 37 dishes, about half of which will be in the shape of the cartoon cat. The interior is also inspired by the cartoon cat with Hello Kitty tableware and art on the walls.
Around 30 robots look after the ordering, cooking, baking and delivering of meals in the 3,200 sq ft restaurant, located in Kunshan – eastern China, which is the latest of many restaurants in Asia featuring robotic staff. There are drawbacks to using the robots which is why Mr. Jugang still relies on humans, hiring a handful to work in the kitchen and cook dishes too complex for their mechanical counterparts.
