Update: (10 Oct 2018): The last time I succumbed to Oh! Matcha, it was so new that the Zomato listing had barely been put up. Or maybe I put it up. In any case, even though I’ve been trying to eat very healthily lately, I decided to treat myself to a soft-serve cone. And… it was a disappointment. Instead of creamy, it tasted a little watery and icy, just not as tasty as a soft-serve should be, especially not one with a combo of matcha and hojicha.
(17 Sept 2017) You might have caught on through a few different blog posts: I love matcha. I don’t mind the traditional Japanese green tea, although it does taste a bit weedy and vegetal in its truest form. As a flavour for a dessert, I really love it: matcha pannacotta, matcha Kit Kats, matcha cake, match frappucino…
So, stumbling on this very new food stall in the basement of World Square: seems like I will have to just hang out here and try basically everything.
For even though I love matcha, I decided on this occasion that I would try a Black Sesame Latte (as I’ve never tried that, and have had many Matcha Lattes before). It was sensational. Yum. I went back another time and got a soft serve ($4, seems reasonable) which was a mixture of matcha (they also had the flavour matcha latte, and I am wondering what the difference would be) and hojicha, which is a slightly savoury Japanese tea, a green tea roasted brown (sometimes over charcoal). I think of hojicha as brown rather than grey, so found the colour confusing… but the combo was tasty.
