Businessman Man Kwong is launching a Hello Kitty restaurant in Hong Kong on June 1, 2015. According to Kwong, Hello Kitty is even more popular in Hong Kong than in Japan. Kwong had been negotiating with Sanrio since 2013 in order to get approval to use the Hello Kitty name and likeness. Eventually he won them over after years of experimentation with dim sum dishes. Kwong's menu consists of 37 items, including stir-fried beef, noodles and shrimp buns. The colors used to create the Hello Kitty likenesses on foods are all natural; for example, her bow is colored with beetroot juice and her eyes are dotted with squid ink.
