A restaurant in London has earned plaudits online after it came up with a creative way to surprise a visually impaired woman on her birthday. A video of the heartwarming moment when the lady reads the message ‘ happy birthday’ written in braille using melted chocolate has gone viral on social media, leaving netizens emotional.
The video was originally shared on TikTok by Natalie Te Paa (@natbysight) along with a caption, “They had the chef write Happy Birthday in BRAILLE!!!… using melted chocolate.”
In the 48-second clip, which has gone viral on several social media platforms, the waiter can be heard saying, “We want to wish you a happy birthday” while placing a plate with the message in front of Natalie. Then, another person, assumed to be Natalie’s friend, takes her hand and guides her to the message written on the place.
