According to a recent article on China Daily, Shanghai’s first “authorized Hello Kitty-themed restaurant,” called Bistro Bianco Hello Kitty, is open for business and ready to serve you everything from Hello Kitty-branded drinks to these delightful treats.

The restaurant is apparently spilt between two floors, with the first floor being where customers wait to be seated and the second containing the dining area. The proprietors also set up the first floor with plenty of Hello Kitty goods straight from Japan for you to buy while your stomach grumbles. Hey, no one ever said Sanrio doesn’t know how to make money!

▼ Get your Kitty-chan goods on the way in or out!
