Kuidaore was a massive eight-story beacon of gluttony. More famous than the restaurant itself was the mascot clown doll, named "Kuidaore Taro". You can see the character perched atop the sign in his trademark striped suit.

A few Osaka natives have told me that visitors rarely ate at the physical restaurant - they just showed up to pose with the doll. Sadly, the restaurant was forced to officially close its doors last year.
