'Yah, that's a pretty long piece of eel'

My Mayback card arrived in the mail earlier in the week and as part of the promo, I get like S$100 free to charge to my card. And obviously, it's time for a well-deserved sushi treat. Since I had to get a haircut at Liang Court, I figured I'll treat myself to lunch at Tompopo again. Being alone, I got my favourite counter seat, only its not facing the sushi chef. It's actually facing rows of ramen bowls and the ramen cooks preparing them.

Anyway, here's my 'free' meal. All S$50 (plus tax) worth of it. Yah, that's a pretty long piece of eel.


After that, I headed to the basement for some desserts and/or snacks. Wanted to go to the supermarket but decided to pop into the Tampopo Deli instead. Saw a Q but I didn't what they were Q-ing for. Looked around and realised it's for their famous cream puffs. I looked at the little timer board at the cashier and it says the next batch is due at 1pm. Looked at my watch and it says 1pm exactly! So I joined the Q and got my cream puffs a few minutes later. As I joined the Q, a couple more people came and like, after me, three more people behind me got their treats, the rest didn't. Was sold out.
For a really neat shot of inside one of those guys, head to Ice's blog. She's got a great pix of the inside of one. Yah, the cream was like, really oozing out of it. It's S$10 for four although Ice, I didn't see any signs saying you can't order more than four. But I could have missed it. Thank gawd, the Tempopo cream puffs did NOT turn out like this!!!

Got lar the sign...you must have missed it. It says only 4 per customer in the weekends. Why don't you try ordering more than 4 next time haha...Good excuse to go back next week. :)

Service sucks at Tampopo Deli but the cream puffs are really awesome right? If only one could jump out from my screen now!

cavalock: I'm not too sure about Beard Papa. $2.50? Haven't eaten that in ages. But after Tampopo Deli's cream puff, you won't want to go back to Beard Papa again!

diva: You seem more interested in re-ment than cream puffs lol.
