Unfortunately, there are few cafes within Square One that offer stable Internet connection as well as outlets in a decently quiet atmosphere. In search for a spot where brief conversation could occur, we were left with no other option than to stop by Aroma to get our business done.
My partner-in-crime on this occasion was sufficiently fond of the chain store, and ordered a Matcha Latte with ease. She did find it odd that they refused to make an iced version of the beverage though. I, on the other hand, knowing full well that Aroma would not be using authentic Japanese matcha powder, went straight for the safe choice: London Fog.
Former opinions were not banished, however, since the Matcha Latte was as repulsive as I had imagined: watery and devoid of proper grassy depth.
Another round of meek silence ensued, only to be informed that the car demonstration was intended solely for small children. After a brief moment of pleading, however, the operator reluctantly agreed to show me the interior of the vehicle. Score!
