Via Tokyo – Limited Time Genmaicha

Via Tokyo, the Japanese dessert cafe which has been raved to serve the best matcha since its opening. The promising quality, high end ingredients and Japanese authenticity, all these sum up to be their biggest strength.

Located at the corner of haven street, an area full of popularity and competitions, the VT team still continues to be the lead in the soft serve world. Not to mention their weekly reverse tokyo Wednesday, when only Hojicha soft cream is served all day, they have recently relaunched a more premium version of their old Genmaicha soft cream.

Options between trio flavors served in waffle cup or single cone/cup, the Gyokuro genmaicha is still of the very stiff texture, smooth and mouthful of creaminess. While the Uji Matcha soft serve is still the perfect matcha, I am surprised by the overwhelmingly sweet smoothie that comes with Hokkaido Milk soft cream. It is thick, and very matcha concentrated, but unfortunately sweetened to the max! So for the next visit, it is better to stick with their soft serve and cakes.
