To celebrate the life of Tupac Shakur, a one-day pop-up restaurant inspired by the renowned rapper is opening at the Fulton Mall in Fresno, Calif., on Sept. 13 — the 20th anniversary of his 1996 death.

According to Rolling Stone, Powamekka Cafe will serve dishes based on several of Shakur’s personal recipes, as well as those of other musicians — all of which he had intended to include in a cookbook. Additionally, several original Pac-themed menu items will be available to customers, including a California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessey Apple Butter chicken wings, a Mac-and-Cheeseburger and Thug Passion cake pops.

The restaurant will also feature design ideas inspired by sketches left behind by Shakur, such as restroom doors labelled “Divaz” and “Playaz.”
