Every country that's represented in the World Cup likes to show off their spirit, especially fans of Japan's Samurai Blue team. As well as wearing anything blue to fit in, there are also a surprising number of blue-colored foods that Japanese restaurants and pubs have introduced. The EkiCafe in Osaka is one of them, with its World Set and Samurai Set menu items.

The World Set is a creamy curry dish naturally colored blue with the use of a gardenia fruit. The pile of rice is arranged with a cherry tomato at its center, so that it resembles the flag of Japan. This dish is served with a green cocktail garnished with a lemon wedge in celebration of Brazil. The Samurai Set is nearly identical to the World Set, except that it goes all blue-hued with its cocktail too. Stats for Sporty Blue-Hued Meals Trending: This Quarter & Average
