Survey Corps Mess Hall Set Meals
When hunger calls, there’s no better place to have lunch in Universal Cool Japan than Attack of the Titan’s Survey Corps Mess Hall. Their menu boasts heavy set meals featuring steaks and roast chicken served with a variety of sides like a whole boiled potato, grilled onion, bread, and salad—among others. After having your fill, you might want to click a picture with life-sized Attack on Titan statues. Simply present your voucher that comes with the set meal you ordered.
Lupin III Churritos & Palmier
Churros are a classic theme park treat, and Universal Cool Japan 2020 put a Lupin III spin to it. Each churro stick is chocolate and caramel-flavored, coated with sprinkles, and is best paired with the Fujiko palmier—a flaky heart-shaped pastry piped on the side with a white rose, referencing the series’ notorious female trickster. Both are presented so prettily, you’d want to keep the wrappings as a souvenir after you’ve had your last bite.
Lupin III Popcorn
Universal Studios Japan is well-known for its cool and kawaii popcorn dispensers featuring various cartoon characters and pop culture references (their Minion dispensers are best-sellers!). And for Universal Cool Japan 2020, a special Lupin III popcorn bucket in the shape of a getaway car has been released. Needless to say, Lupin III fans and merchandise collectors will surely love this!
