Would You Decorate With Fake Food?

Would You Decorate With Fake Food?

The fake food in these images can be found in the Restaurant District of Tokyo in Kappabashi Market — the Asakusa neighborhood of Tokyo has an entire street dedicated to restaurant and cooking supplies (like New York's Bowery, only bigger). Though the stores that are full of knives, take-away containers and ceramic bowls are fun to browse, I went there with the goal of scoring some fake food...

Many of the low to mid-range restaurants in the city use plastic food displays as a way to entice diners with a visual menu.

The plastic sushi and resin beer was especially tempting but with Tokyo prices, we held off on a purchase. This stuff is expensive — a realistic-looking plastic steak was about ¥5000 (over $50!).
