Soft opening of the AKB48 Official Cafe Singapore

AKB48 opened their 1st Official Cafe outside Japan here in Singapore yesterday. The cafe is located at the 3rd floor of *SCAPE, 1 floor above the AKB48 Official Shop Singapore.

I always have bad luck when it comes to the photographers line. Right at the back again, 7 rows of people in front of me.

The cafe was officially opened at 12:30PM by 3 AKB48 members, Shimazaki Haruka and Takeuchi Miyu from AKB48's Team 4, and Abe Maria from AKB48 Team Kenkyuusei.

This was followed by a closed door media session (which I was not invited to so no pictures) until 3:30PM when it was officially opened to the public.

There were lots of fans there to witness the opening and try out the food in the cafe. The queue was stretched until 8:00PM. I only managed to get in at 6:30PM, 3 hours after the cafe opened.

There was a nice surprise at around 4:00PM, the 3 members who opened the cafe went in to greet the dining customers. They even shook hands and took pictures with them.

The menu is quite limited currently since it just started out. Like I said in a previous post it is just a soft opening for food tasting and such.

The cafe itself was quite spacey, big enough to fit up to 60 people. The dinner menu only starts at 7:00PM so I had to suffice with the tea special, which was mainly ice cream.

This is the AKB48 Ice Cream Set. It doesn't show clearly in the picture but the colors of the ice cream are, from left to right, Yellow (AKB48 Team 4), Pink (AKB48 Team A), Green (AKB48 Team K) and Blue (AKB48 Team B). Overall nice but the green ice cream, which was green tea flavored by the way, was a little too bitter.
