From outside, Meshi looks like a normal restaurant. Its interior is not too big, making Meshi a restaurant where many people cannot have lunch at the same time.
Luffy, Zoro and Nami, led by Usopp went to Meshi in order to find something to eat as soon as they reached Syrup Village. There, the Straw Hat Pirates got to know Usopp better, and the latter talked to them about Kaya. Then, once Usopp left the rest of the Usopp Pirates entered the restaurant and met the Straw Hats.
