Rough day… 13. November 2017

I was beyond tired and upset in the morning after my therapy session, so I went to Tokumaru for breakfast to cheer myself up:

 Bao (Steamed bun with chashu pork, Japanese mayonnaise, teriyaki-garlic sauce and green salad)

 Coconut milk and vegetable broth-based ramen with shiitake and shimeji mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn and bamboo shoots.

I felt a lot better after I had taken a nap at home and then this:

 Coffee and hazelnut nougat and marzipan chocolate log

 Blood sausages with some salad and sour cream

 Coffee and puffed rice in chocolate that I shared with my boyfriend

Pet all the puppies!… 10. October 2017

 A quark pastry, a wiener pastry and a cup of coffee.

 Pasta carbonara with some cherry tomatoes.

 Skyr with honey.

 Rice with tuna, tomatoes, sour cream and wasabi-sesame spice.

There are amazing pros and cons to working in a café. The pros are that we have a pet friendly establishment, so I get to pet a lot of cute dogs and an occasional ferret among other critters. No one has sadly brought their cat yet.

The cons are occasional unsavoury customers. For instance, this time a very drunken and smelly Russian guy first bothered women in the bus stop in front of our café, then came inside and attempted to bother my female customers. I told him to stop and managed to keep him away from my clients, but then he started professing his love to me over the counter. I played dumb, told him that I hardly understood what he was saying and invited our tall male chef to come and translate for me. The drunken guy didn’t seem to like that xD Ugh, I was so relieved when we finally got him to leave.

Doughnuts and cake… 27. September 2017

 Coffee and two chocolate doughnuts

 Some carrots

 Spicy soup with corn

 Coffee and cake! Kadi came to visit and brought cake, one of them was with banana and the other was a passion fruit cheesecake. So delish!

 Leftover casserole with rice, potatoes and eggs. Some cherry tomatoes on the side too.
