Merry MOE Christmas took place Sunday 13 December with a doctors and nurses theme in slot 1 and Christmas theme in slot 2. It had been a year since my last MOE event, the Christmas event back in 2014. Again held at Cafe Necco, a modern Japanese café hidden in the depths of Exmouth Market which specialises in desserts and traditional Japanese bento and curry dishes.
Tickets were around £10 and included a Christmas cracker, chekki (decorated polaroid photo) with a maid or butler and a raffle ticket in the form of a polaroid photo of Maid Miyu. Those unfamiliar with maid café culture or want to find out more about Maids of England I recommend reading my interview with the cast here.
On arrival I was greeted by Butler Lexie who explained the rules of the cafe, handy if you had never been before. Escorted inside I was introduced to my serving Butler Suzuran, dressed as a surgeon. He took my order of a green tea latte which came in a beautiful tea cup with cats on. One thing I love about Cafe Necco is the kitchenware! I also ordered a green tea cake which was beautiful as well as delicious!
The other people on my table ordered omurice (an omelette made with fried rice and usually topped with ketchup). When this is ordered your serving burler/maid will draw something on it using ketchup. Usually this is your name, a cute face or a cat etc. But even a kawaii maid cafe could not escape from Star Wars fever so Butler Suzuran was tasked with drawing the Deathstar!
After everyone had ate Maid Miyu performed for us, good practice as she is set to perform in Japan later this month. As we waited to get our chekki (mine was with Maid Nadeshiko). The serving cast rotated playing games with the table and pulling our Christmas crackers. Butler Suzuran challenged our table to connect 4, but we all lost to him. Noooooo!
A lovely afternoon and got me in the Christmas spirit! I look forward to see what Maids of England have in store for 2016! Follow the maids on Twitter @MaidsofEngland
