Ah Japan, you never fail to impress us with your weird themed cafes. This one is no exception. For most eateries, you’d expect to be treated with exceptional service.
Not this one.
Pay a fee to be hurled with insults and rudely attended to by Japanese maids and butlers at Tsundere Cafe.
A Dish Best Served Cold
After a successful first run back in February, Tsundere Cafe will be back on June 9 at Luminos in Woodlands.
While it’s rather bizarre and uncommon in Singapore, customers have commented that they previously enjoyed the first pop-up.
The word ‘Tsundere’ is a Japanese term for a character development process that describes a person who is initially hostile before gradually showing a warmer side over time.
Customers can expect to be ignored and disrespectfully treated by the staff. They may look kawaii and demure but don’t be surprised if they slam trays on your table and throw menus at you.
If you need the staff to sayang you, pay an additional $2 for a “gacha” or special service such as feeding, massage, dekopin (forehead flick), games and polaroid photos.
Request for a particular service will cost you $5. Upon reaching your 10 gacha roll, expect a “deredere” treatment. Whatever that means.
Anyway, if you can’t deal with slow service and rudeness, don’t attempt to rebuke or scold the staff members. I mean, you literally pay to get abused, what are you expecting?
So if you really need someone to feed your masochistic side or you just want to check out what this whole cafe is about, then go ahead. Reserve a table before they run out of seats.
Address: 71 Woodlands Industrial Park E9, Wave 9, #09-04, Luminos, Singapore 757048
