Official Kirby Cafes in Japan Want Diners to Try “Waddle Dee’s Fried Balls”
Netizens were amused by the name of a dish on Japan’s official Kirby Café menus called “Waddle Dee’s Fried Balls.”
The dish was named after the story about video game characters Kirby and a group of Waddle Dees opening a restaurant. As they are unable to cook anything, the characters enlist Chef Kawasaki and the Waddle Dees help roll the pizza dough.
The exact translation of the dish is “Waddle Dee’s Lightly Hand-Rolled Pikora”, while the English translation of the menus calls it “Waddle Dee’s Fried Balls”. The dish is made with fried pizza dough accompanied by Cajun spices and maple syrup for dipping. It would have been offered in Kirby Café since the end of 2019.
