Guess what? I’m the same age as Hello Kitty. Any gal who grew up in the 80s (hello, me) has mad love for the white cat with the hair bow and precious accessories.
Now, my 4-and-a-half year old son and millions of other kids are obsessed with watching the Hello Kitty surprise egg unboxing videos on YouTube. It’s been quite an evolution of cuteness. Forty is the new 20, right H. Kitty?
While we may not make it to the Experience Music Project EMP’s current exhibit, Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty, which began in November after a successful run at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, we will definitely catch her appearances at some of our favorite Seattle restaurants. Turns out H. Kitty is a bit of a foodie.
Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt Seattle runs through March 18 as seven participating restaurants around town offer special, limited edition themed food or beverage items. We’re most excited about Japonessa’s Hello Kitty spicy tuna sushi rolls and Hello Robin Cookie’s iced, bow-shaped sugar cookie with a scoop of strawberry ice cream and sprinkles. You can check out the full Hello Kitty Hungry Hunt menu to see what Pie, Trophy Cupcakes, and the other restaurants are offering.
In true Hello Kitty fashion, each menu item comes with a small gift - a collectible enamel pin featuring H. Kitty stuffing her face with a yummy treat.
I knew I liked her.
