From March 18 to April 30 2013, Vampire Cafe in Ginza, Tokyo will be serving special Castlevania: Lords of Shadow themed dishes to celebrate the release of the 3DS game, Mirror of Fate. It consists of 4 entries representing the 4 playable characters of the game, and will include a specified coaster of the character the dish represents.
Start with a meat dish inspired by Gabriel Belmont: “Curse of The Jet-Black Illuminated Moonlit Night (Phantom of The Demon Castle)”. A Chicken and “Rainbow-colored Vegetable” Goulash topped with Sour Cream for 1,100 Yen. Fitting that Goulash is a Hungarian stew, and that Transylvania, where the Dracula stories took place was once a part of the Kingdom of Hungary. Incidentally, Castlevania in Japan is known as “Akumajou Dracula”, or “The Demon Castle Dracula”, hence the dish’s name.
For dessert, Alucard offers the “Destiny of The Haunts of Wicked Men” (Belmont’s Tragedy)”. It’s a Framboise (Raspberry) Panna Cotta with 4 Berries and Crème Anglaise (Custard) sauce. You get two red meticulously designed crucifix-shaped Panna Cottas and all the works, for 650 Yen. Interestingly, the dish’s name in Japanese is “Sadame No Makyou”, coincidentally the Japanese title for Mirror of Fate.
If you’re in the mood for some social drinking, Trevor Belmont has an 850 Yen green-colored Vodka-based spirit called “Trevor Belmont’s Determination”.
Finally, a non-alcoholic beverage by the famous Simon Belmont for 750 Yen rounds up the menu. Judging from the color, it seems like your typical Four Seasons drink.
So if you’re a Castlevania fan that happens to be in Tokyo this summer, why not check out the Vampire Cafe? The Japanese version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ~Mirror of Fate~ releases March 20, 2013 in Japan with English voices and Japanese text.
