I’m sure many of us must have heard about the fact that this isn’t the real Kyoto Matcha An from Kyoto. They simply sell packaged items sourced from the original branch in Kyoto, but the cafe itself does not serve the real food. And sadly, even though Hong Kong has been so obsessed with matcha, the excitement does not last long especially at this matcha cafe.
Located with the Art Mall K11, the matcha cafe is on the second floor next to an infamous Japanese okonomiyaki restaurant. There are tea bags, cookies and other confectioneries in front and a clean and neat sitting area at the back.
The menu listed a few options of matcha or hojicha soft serve, jelly, parfait etc.
We opt for a Hojicha parfait, composed of a layer of milk custard, some lovely rice krispies, soft whipped cream, matcha sponge, hojicha jelly; and finally, swirls of hojicha ice cream, dango and red bean paste. The whole thing is nicely blended together and enjoyable.
The matcha roll cake impresses for its amazingly moist and soft texture. The matcha cream has a strong bitter taste while it is balanced by the whipped cream with a tad of sweetness.
And honestly, I personally like the roll cake so much!
