The Gigiri best five is a well researched assignment. For the Tribe, they have managed to get an upper hand with their newly opened Coffee and Pastry shop just a few meters from the main entrance. The miniature cakes are particularly so enticing, so delicious, well priced and beautiful take away packaging.
Once again, Big up for your good work.
