Fangirls/boys of donghua series Heaven Official's Blessing, it's your time to shine. There's a new pop-up cafe in town that's themed after this LGBTQ+ romance animated show.

From now till 18 August 2022, you'll get to bask in Heaven Official's Blessing feels at ANIPLUS Cafe. They've collaborated with animated video platform Bilibili to introduce a specially curated menu and immersive experience inspired by the acclaimed series.

Ambience at ANIPLUS Cafe

Decking out every corner of the cafe are Heaven Official's Blessing characters. Accompanying diners at each table are chibi-style Xie Lian and Hua Cheng cut-outs, and completing the experience is episode one of the series playing on loop in the background.

You'll also get to snap a photo with everyone's favourite couple, Xie Lian and Hua Cheng, in the form of life-sized standees.

They've even set up a Xie Lian altar with artwork that fans will recognise as the painting by Hua Cheng.

Food at ANIPLUS Cafe

The menu has four mains, four desserts and four drinks.

For mains, we went for Xielian's Special Sauce with Mantou ($15.90). It comes with three fried buns and a mildly spicy curry sauce that looks a little dubious on purpose, as Xie Lian is known for his terrible cooking skills.

Still feeling a little peckish, we dug into a more substantial main dish - the Nanfeng & Fuyao’s Chicken Katsu Rice ($15.90). It comes with a fried chicken cutlet covered in a savoury sauce with fluffy egg and rice.

For those craving noodles instead, there are two options. The Maple Forest Chicken Yakisoba ($15.90) is decorated with carrot leaves and served on a wooden plate that's reminiscent of the wooden cart scene. Or go for the Ruo Ye Rice Noodles ($15.90) which is inspired by Ruoye, Xie Lian's white silk bandage.

Pair the mains with the beverages ($7.90 each) that come in vibrant colours inspired by the characters: Xielian, Huacheng, Wind Master & Earth Master and Lingwen.

End your meal with the desserts inspired by key elements of the series. Look at how pretty the Crimson Rain Sought Flower ($13.90) red velvet lava cake looks! Although there wasn't much lava, the cake had a moist centre and its sweetness balanced with the refreshing vanilla ice cream.

Another photo-worthy dessert was the Crown Prince who Pleased the Gods ($13.90), a cheesecake with ice cream.

The other two desserts are Adventure in Banyue Kingdom ($13.90), a large parfait topped with whipped cream and wafers, and Huacheng's Ring ($15.90), a ring-shaped cake that's best for sharing.

Diners who spend a minimum of $14 will receive a free sticker and bookmark set. The bookmark comes in four designs which will be given out randomly.
