[Update, Sep 9] Maiduru is closing permanently on Friday September 25, 2020. A goodbye sale is currently ongoing.
Few things are more Japanese than an entire store of plastic food models, and Maiduru is an authentic stop for food fakes. After joining the throng of people standing outside snapping photos of the store’s ‘great wave of fried rice’ (obviously inspired by the famous Hokusai work), step inside and find yourself surrounded by a colourful assortment of faux food in every shape and form, from fridge magnets and jewellery to phone cases and tablet stands. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel peckish – the mock meals are uncannily realistic.
