Restaurants’ displays of fake food are real deal for tourists

Fancy menus may be enough for most restaurant diners around the world, but not in Japan. Here, image is everything and before going in for a bite, people want to see exactly what the food they want to order looks like.

These mouth-watering fake food models are popular all throughout Japan and recently neighboring countries like South Korea and China have also adopted this ingenious marketing technique. But it’s more than just advertising good food, the level of detail have raised this craft to an art form and several displays have been exhibited in famous venues like the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London.


It is actually fun to see how they are made. Try youtube or something to watch how those are actually created!
