The year is 2039, and we still can't decided whether we're totally disgusted by the idea of a mayonnaise café or incredibly, incredibly on board.
But regardless of what we think, it's happening, and the chances are somebody you know is absolutely jumping for joy over the prospect of a place where EVERYTHING is served with mayo, and there's no awkward conversations with the waiter when they ask for their third helping.
Two Kewpie Mayo Cafes have opened up in Nagoya and Toyko, with Kewpie apparently being the equivalent of Hellmann's in Japan since launching in 1925.
According to Hello Giggles, the brand was created by Toichiro Nakashima when he discovered the creamy, white condiment while he studied food production in the US. At the time, he came across the Kewpie cartoon characters created by Rose O'Neill, created his own mayo recipe and well, er, here we are.
The cafes have mayo bottles hanging from the ceiling:
Bowls of different mayonnaise at the salad bar:
Great looking food:
And yeah, lots of mayo:
The mayonnaise cafes will only be open from March 1 to March 31 in Tokyo, and from April 3 to April 30 in Nagoya. See you there?
