Fake Food in Japan

Just got back from Japan (Tokyo, Naoshima, Kobe, and Kyoto). Jet lag is hitting hard. I am preparing multiple posts about the food I ate in Japan. Too many memorable meals to count. I fell in love with the country and its food, but I was also blown away by the fake cuisine!

There's real artistry involved in these plastic wonders. There are fake food displays are outside many Japanese restaurants, regardless of the type of cuisine being served there. Here are just a few examples:

And you can even by your own fake food at a fake food store! 

And if you can't go to Japan, just order online!

More soon...


  1. Most Japanese restaurants here in the SF Bay Area have similar displays. Perhaps the ones to skip are those that don't regularly dust or clean their displays!

    1. Yeah, I've seen them at some Japanese spots here in LA, too. And agreed about the dust :) I still have such a fondness for fake food displays

  2. Spaghetti Bolognaise served immediately after it has been cooked is a great comfort food. Poke franchise
