Pikachu has gone from the Pokémon Center to the grill.

Australian restaurant Down-N-Out is now cooking up burgers inspired by some of the most iconic Pokémon. Only available until Sept. 3, Pokémon fans can take a bite out of a Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Pikachu burger.

According to Mashable, diners will be served one of the savory treats randomly when they order the Pokéburger. Each one is a little different. The Bulbasaur burger has lots of greens, including pickles, the Charmander creation is a bit spicy with its volcanic cheese, and the Pikachu has fries along with some pointy ears.

This isn’t the first time anime has found itself the muse for culinary experimentation. Earlier this year, a Sailor Moon-themed cafe opened up in Tokyo complete with a burger in the likeness of Sailor Moon’s Crystal Star

But the real question is: Can you take a bite out of one of these burgers with Pikachu staring back at you?
