Like Hello Kitty? Check out Sanrio’s newest Character, GUDETAMA Here!


The GUDETAMA Food Menu Overview


Gudetama is a Sanrio character introduced in 2013 based on an egg lacking in “spunk”. His name is a play on “gude gude”; used to describe someone with no energy or strength and possibly tama from tamago (egg). He is sometimes seen with a man in an orange/yellow costume that fully covers the body. Apart from being a popular character, Gudetama also has a short anime series on YouTube.


I found the character very adorable though I never paid much attention to the actual character, at least not until now. During Stan Lee’s Comikaze 2015, I encountered Gudetama again & it was at the booth that I found out about the delicious Gudetama-inspired Menu at Plan Check Kitchen + Bar.

The Gudetama Menu was created by Chef Ernestor Urchimura, Founding Chef and Partner of Plan Check.

I decided to go and check out this menu for myself, and with the help of my assistant, I set out to find this
