Matcha might be a passing trend to some but die-hard enthusiasts of Matcha will prove you wrong, especially when specialised Matcha cafes such as Maccha House are still garnering a steady crowd on a daily basis.
Besides bursting with health benefits, Matcha also tastes unbelievably good and acts as a flavour enhancement to both sweet and savoury dishes. Maccha House serves an array of Japanese-style savoury mains (think udon and rice bowls), but we say skip the mains, and dive right for their amazing desserts.
Matcha drinks are also really popular here and we can see why. Their matcha latte is one of our favourites and one that we always return for.
The Matcha Tiramisu (S$6) was served in a wooden box and comes with a miniature cup of tea on the side. One thing to note about the price point here is that everything is relatively inexpensive. We liked that the tiramisu was not too sweet but the taste of Matcha was still distinct.
Another dessert worth mentioning is the Matcha Chocolate Parfait (S$10), which is good to share for two. The star of the show was the rich and thick Matcha ice cream that had an intense taste of the fabulous Japanese green tea powder. The azuki and cornflakes added a textural diversity and complemented the concentrated Matcha flavours really well.
We would definitely return back to Maccha House for their sweet treats, or to stop by just to get some matcha ice cream on cone. Or maybe just a simple cup of their Matcha latte.
