When JustJenn emailed me a few days ago asking if I was free to go to lunch at Royal/T, I jumped at the chance. I didn’t care that it was in Culver City, over an hour away or that I had visited Royal/T last year. I was going to hang out with her and a few other bloggers and celebrate the icon Hello Kitty.
I never really got into Hello Kitty as a kid. My aunts would always get me Little Twin Stars instead (another product produced by Sanrio). Maybe my aunts knew something I didn’t know like that I am deathly allergic to cats. Oh well. I still adore Hello Kitty.
In addition to showcasing art related to Hello Kitty. The menu at Royal/T also had a special menu devoted to the icon of all things cute: waffles, pancakes and the pinacle being the Hello Kitty High Tea, which was filled with sushi, pressed sandwiches, brownie bites cupcakes, a pot of tea and a decorated Hello Kitty cookie.
The Three Apples Hello Kitty exhibit goes on until Sunday, November 15.
