Osaka Maid Cafe cake specials

There are some here who don't read my main blog and ergo they may be unaware that I'm a terrible unashamed otaku; I love comics, figurines, gaming, talking about gaming, movies with robots and just about everything Japan. I have a *slight* obsession with maid cafes and by slight I mean I have collectables of the Tokyo maid cafe uniforms and have a charm of the Cos Cha Cafe uniform on my phone.

Unsurprisingly while we were in Osaka then we stopped by Den Den Town and I was insistant on attending a maid cafe. Now apart from my delight at Japanese girls in goth lolita uniforms and a desperate will for a seat after shopping and walking all day the food at maid cafes is actually rather nice, and only about the same price as a cafe in inner city Sydney. The cakes we ordered though were something special and worthy of a blog post.

Blueberry Cheesecake 750 Yen

Chestnut and black sesame cake 750 Yen

This cake was so damn good with strings of black sesame cream on the top that I became obsessed with finding such cakes again and only managed to find one similar pudding in the whole time we were in Japan.

Chocolate mousse cake 750 Yen

Of course the way these girls really make money isn't by selling cakes at a 10% premium, its via entertainment, through playing games and entertaining slightly dodgy old men (and gaijin tourists). So here's a picture that we paid to have taken with the girls that work at the venue, remember that taking pictures of maids and cosplay girls on the street is a no no since they can charge up to $20 a pop for them and is one of the primary ways they make money.

Unfortunately in the way of Japan this cafe is in a back alley up several floors and did not have an anglicised name or address. My only advice to you when searching for Maid Cafes in Japan is look for cosplay girls on the street handing out flyers. Take one and indicate you would like to go to their venue and they willl either hand you a map or take you there themselves.

  6. maids live and work at their managers' home. Moved by the depressing financial aspects in their nations of origin, these ladies exchange their homegrown work for compensation an unfamiliar land. Their managers are the total inverses, with the purchasing ability to limit their housekeeping loads. Such differentiating fortunes before long becomes obvious, particularly to the burdened specialist co-op. If not dealt with delicately, this monetary difference breeds discontent and issues not too far off. агенция софия домоуправител

  7. Material abundance is a delicate subject. It isolates the special from poor people, and initiates abnormal sensations of culpability and jealousy among its players. This is the truth in many homes across Asia and the Middle East. Europa-Road túlméretes szállítás
