What makes this unique bar so attractive for the locals and foreigners may be because of their special affinity for the popular characters in Street Fighters, Resident Evil (Bio Hazard), Basara, Ace Attorney, etc, where they might feel the sense of unity for recognizing what those characters are in the CAPCOM games worldwide.
The staffs here are good entertainers who would perform you a "short play" whenever you order drinks (it is part of their friendly service so don't count on it too much). They have played the Street Fighters for us when we ordered Guile's Sommersalt Kick (730 Yen) and Edmond Honda's tea (450 Yen) for our drink which was very amusing. They will probably give you "Ha do ken!" if you ever had a chance to order Ryu's cocktail and perhaps "Tatsumaki Senpu Kyaku!" if you order Ken's special drink respectively. But most importantly, we found that all staffs here are enjoying to perform in front of the customers by creating the atmosphere very lively and energetic. We had a lot of fun watching the screens and also enjoyed having a chat with one of the friendly staffs who was very easy to talk to.
Among many CAPCOM oriented choices on the menu, the Brain Cake (680 Yen) from Resident Evil (Bio Hazard) was their best recommendation. Some may think that this is just an entertaining bar that has no applaudable dishes, but the flavor of this cake was, in fact, exceptional which actually made us quite surprised. Of course, the knife sticked on the brain shaped cake looked very creepy as you can see on the picture but what you get in return is an outstanding Mont Blanc!
We heard there are lot of fans of this bar and some of them even show up wearing those character's costumes. You might bump into one of them with strange outfit at night if you are lucky!
