I’m super impressed with Tsujiri!! Service first, cake second.
So what happened was we decided to get O-maccha ice blended (mine with green tea soft serve!) to go since the smaller-than-small café was full. But while picking up the drinks, we spotted this cake below.
Black sesame roll cake with kinako cream ($5.40).
Last piece left? Oh yes, definitely mine!
It was wrapped in a transparent plastic box and then me being fickle-minded as usual, I changed my mind and wanted to wait for a table instead. A Japanese couple was hogging the table beside them with their bags so we “ahem” them and had seats within 5 mins, haha. K took a proper plate from the staff so that I could photograph the cake and this lady came up to ask whether she can plate it for us cuz for in-house diners, whipped cream and red bean paste will be served together. Impressive! Very kind and observant of her; I can just imagine how many people will look the other way with that “why bother?” attitude. What’s even better is that she’s a Singaporean (not the Japanese staff at the counter)! I feel comforted that Singaporeans are still capable of winning service so kudos to you, the Tsujiri lady!
And the cake? Delicious, of course!
