Published Sep 08, 2016Since his death in 1996, Tupac Shakur has been commemorated with a Broadway musical, biopic and even a cringeworthy cover of "Thugz Mansion" from Justin Bieber. Now, to mark the 20th anniversary of the rapper's passing, his dreams of opening a restaurant are set to become a reality.
Fresno, CA-based restaurant Take 3 Burgers will open a one-day, pop-up eatery on September 13 to honour 2Pac. Dubbed Powamekka Café, the concept was generated from sketches and menu ideas that the rapper laid out before his death.
In addition to Shakur's own culinary suggestions, a number of musically inspired menu items will be available to order, including a California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessey Apple Butter Chicken Wings and Thug Passion Cake Pops — featuring champagne cake iced in an Alize butter cream frosting.
Take a look at some of the well-meaning, but not entirely appetizing offerings below.
In addition to the food, the event will feature a 2Pac-themed art show and performances from local musicians. Find full details about the tasty tribute here.
