Another day, I checked their website to get the map. And, ta-da! they do online order for pickup.
The cafe is only 12 minutes walk distance from my place.
I was so curious about ordering food in foreign country. How does it work? Is that the same as ours?
I have no choice. Let's do it!
I decided to get "I Am Humble", Indian curry bowl.
They asked add-ons. Avocado, pesto, and... kim chee? Why? Is it cool with people here? But we put some pickles on curry bowl... maybe that's the same thing.
Okay, Facebook login as usual.
They just asked the phone number and billing info.
"Thank you for your order!"
Wait, that's it? Don't you ask "Are you sure" thing?
I have to leave the house now! Yeah.. sure, there's nothing else to do for that though.
Btw, Japanese online order is more complicated... name, sex (why?), birth date (so why?), address, phone number, mail address, login ID, password... They ask you to fill those crap even when you logged in using your Facebook account. Really annoying. Ppl in my country LOVE complicated protocols.
And they send you an email to let you know what time the food will be delivered and blah blah blah.
I got used to that so it was incredibly simple. Simple is good!
Although, how do they recognise me? My sensitive Japanese heart asks.
Phone number? They are not gonna ask me to show my passport, right? (Would be funny but I've been asked that at a grocery store because they couldn't read my kanji-signature on my credit card.)
Okay, I am prepared. Ask me anything!
"Hello, I'm picking up my order."
"'Humble' with avocado?"
"Here it is. Thank you."
"Thank you. Bye."
Hey, ask me something more!
What if I was a lunch stealer who hacked Makoto's laptop to snatch this yummy curry?
And they just gave me the box.
If it is Japan, they put the box and a bunch of paper napkins, plastic fork & spoon and wet wipes into a plastic bag unless you tell them "don't".
Yes... ppl in my country don't care about the environments.
Simple again. Simple is good!
You are humble.
It's a curry in the box. Not very photogenic. So I just put a pic of the box.
But the taste was good!
New experience, yay.
