Birthday Celebration at Secret Recipe

Another of my colleague's birthday celebration and I was once again, the party organizer:)
This round, we were planning on Secret Recipe since the birthday girl actually has a soft spot for the food there.
Only problem was, we bought the birthday cake from elsewhere as the cakes in Secret Recipe were too large for our small group.
We brought the cake in anyway though although we were doubtful they'll allow us to celebrate there; but another colleague, said that we have our customer rights to bring our cake in:)

Weirdly though, this was supposed to be the dessert but somehow it ended up as the appetizer...
Really rich as commented by my colleagues who had them (came along with the set lunches)

They gave us Oreo bars

True enough, one of the waiter approached us and asked whether we are gonna cut the cake in there and told us that it was against their policy.
Our colleague braved it and asked him whether he wanted us to leave by making that statement and that are we not allowed to have lunch in Secret Recipe by bringing in other cakes.
The staff was clearly scared and told us that it was just against their rules and that we can bring it in but would hope that we don't cut it there.
My colleague was pissed that they were putting on this and annoy customers of their rights.
Technically, I do understand from Secret Recipe's point of view, but also at the same time, I must say that they do need leniency as they are not just a bakery but also an eatery and they need to accept the other rules that came along with that.
It's a chicken-egg situation I know...enough said.

  1. Yeah, sometimes restaurants are really particular with that. Just hope it didn't spoil your mood! :)

    Btw, why'd they give you Oreo bars? I've never heard or seen of it.

    I like their tomyam very much, though it might be a little expensive. Their spaghetti is good too! :)
