Taste Japan

At AnimeCon, you can experience Japanese culture through all five senses, taste included. Visit a maid or butler cafe during the busy festival hours or grab a quick bite to eat. You can also make your own snacks at one of our food workshops. We also have sake and whisky tastings with authentic Japanese drinks. 

The three catering areas

Grab a bite to eat and something to drink at one of the food stands. From fresh bubble tea, shaved ice to fresh Asian hot meals, AnimeCon has got you covered. For years AnimeCon prides itself by having a variety of tastes of some of the best Japanese foods and drinks. Between our selections you will find not only traditional flavours, but also newly inspired foods. Do you have special dietary wishes or needs, don't worry, you will find that many of the stands cater also to your needs, including Western food and vegan meals

Food Workshops

If you'd rather like to learn how to make the most exquisite flavours of Japan yourself, then AnimeCon typically hosts different Japanese food workshops. This year we have moved these workshops to a tent in front of Bakkerij 2, among all the new caterers.

Maid Cafés

In addition to the Food Court we also have two Maid Cafes and a Butler Café in Bakkerij 2 where you will be welcomed in Japanese style by maids and butlers. Including the opportunity to have you picture taken with them.

Of course you are also welcome to go there just to pick up some food and drinks.

Paid workshops and tastings

An additional ticket is required for most workshops and tastings to cover material costs.

Tickets will be available for purchase on each event page (but also below where you can order multiple tickets at once). Available tickets can be purchased online until 30 minutes before the event starts and at the registration desk at the festival where you can pay with pin and cash. After that we will sell the remaining ttickets (if any) at the door of the location.
