Japanese French Maids at your service

iMaids CafeWell, at least in this one Toronto restaurant they are. The iMaid Cafe servers are all dressed in French maid outfits featuring black mini-skirts, long socks and white aprons.

This new Canadian eatery is designed after the cartoon-inspired restaurants which have been popular in Japan for some years now. The servers’ costumes are ordered from Japan to keep things as authentic as possible.

In cosplay, people dress as characters from Japanese anime, tokusatsu, graphic manga novels, video games, as well as Japanese live action television shows, fantasy movies, or Japanese pop music bands. Cosplay can also refer to someone simply wearing a costume.

iMaid serverOwner Aaron Wang, 24, who opened the iMaid Cafe this summer, wanted to open a restaurant that would be different from other traditional Hong Kong and Chinese restaurants in Toronto, a cosmopolitan city where two million of the 4.6 million people are foreign born. The largest minority group is the Chinese population, which is 410,000.

Wang says he calls his girls maids not waitresses. He also makes sure to hire servers who are young and cute, with long hair and big eyes, and who smile a lot like the characters from the cartoons.

The iMaid Cafe serves a mix of Hong Kong, Taiwanese and Western food. You can find it in the Scarborough suburb about a 30 minute drive from Toronto’s city centre.

The french maids post happened to remind me of a video of Lily Koh I had seen yesterday when I was getting my new Sexy Asian Babes Blog ready for publication. (I secretly love using these publishing terms. Makes me feel like I’m a real part of the media and people actually bother to read what I write.). The reason it reminded me of the Lily Koh video….she was wearing a maids costume. Amazing how the mind of a Walrus works. Had these pieces of the puzzle not fallen together the way they did, I’d still be sitting here, fingers poised on keyboard and nothing coming out. Of course, I also came to another realization….this is a pretty fucking cool blog I have here Watch Video […]

  2. […] That is until now. According to the site X-rated TV (12/18/06), a new cosplay eatery has recently opened in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. It mimics almost to the tee the popular cartoon-based format of many of Japan’s restaurants. It’s called iMaid Cafe and although it might sound as if it should be a cleaning accessory for your MP3 player, it actually features female serving staff dressed in French maid costumes. […]

  3. […] The recent posts about the Japanese French Maids and Chinese schoolgirls got me to remember this Asian anime character that I mentioned last year. […]
