Gudetama does good at Eggs 'n Things
A Gudetama loco moco with bacon blanket is part of a three item Gudetama "Sleepy" menu available at Eggs 'n Things through Oct. 28, 2016. Gudetama's face is created with edible gel paper.
Two Gudetama set menus are available as part of a Sanrio and Eggs 'n Things collaboration benefit for the Japan Society's Kumamoto Relief Fund for victims of the April earthquakes in Japan.
The offer has Gudetama doing good, in spite of his detached, disengaged nature.
For those who have yet to discover Gudetama, he is Sanrio's popular "lazy egg," who prefers the warmth and security of his bacon blanket, or to hide in his shell, rather than explore his horizons and engage with society. Here's a video:
Two set menus are available at Eggs 'n Things three locations:
> Outside Ala Moana Center at 451 Piikoi St.
> Waikiki at 343 Saratoga Road
> Waikiki Beach Eggspress at 2464 Kalakaua Ave.
The $15 Gudetama "Sleepy" menu available from noon to closing features a loco moco with Gudetama egg and bacon blanket, Gudetama hot chocolate with whipped cream, and dessert of Gudetama pancake with lemon frosting, whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate sauce.
The $16 Gudetama "Lazy" menu available from 4 p.m. to closing features a burger with Gudetama egg and french fries, Gudetama iced coffee (or iced cappuccino) with whipped cream, and the Gudetama pancake dessert.
A portion of the sales price will go to the relief fund. For more information about the fundraising effort, visit japansociety.org/earthquake.
