Hello Kitty Dreams restaurant to open in Beijing

Chinese microblog site Weibo has been lighting up in recent days with the unofficial announcement that a Hello Kitty-themed restaurant will open in Sanlitun in December.
 
‘Asia’s first Hello Kitty-themed dream restaurant, very new, ultra-fashionable.’ reads what appears to be one of the first posts on the topic. Other Weibo users have been posting photographs that appear to be of a Hello Kitty Café – a separate project – in another Asian city.
 
The Dreams Restaurant website is mostly still under construction but is hiring, if you are interest in working there as a waiter or even manager, and promises a menu of healthy, western-style food. If true, this would certainly be a departure from the Kitty café's cuisine – some of the stickiest, sweetest treats imaginable.
 
The restaurant will be in Shimao Department Store. A fancy looking mall opposite the north gate of the Workers’ Stadium. Your roving reporter was turned away by a security guard so this photo is the best I can offer.


 
The Japanese cartoon cat has a massive following in China, a 150-acre Hello Kitty theme park is slated to open in Zhejiang province in 2014.

The most important thing is that food be nice...otherwise, it will be not important anyway
