For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
This is one of my favorite Matcha shops in Kyoto! My personal recommendation goes to “Pancake of Matcha” as it is very fluffy and the taste of Matcha matches very well with light whip cream. You may enjoy the beautiful garden through the window while tasting the fine Matcha dessert.
Nishiki Ichiha Fondue
1Must Eat !
Nishiki Ichiha Fondue / ¥1,500
I bet that you have never seen this kind of Matcha dessert. This is a Matcha fondue and there are small size sweets in every drawer. You need to dip them into the Matcha chocolate sauce in the beautiful bowl. Our favorite was the black soybeans with gold foil on top. When you dip them, they beautifully change their color into a bright green. It tastes very rich as the sweet black soybeans and Matcha match well.
Pancake of Matcha with Drink
2Must Eat !
Pancake of Matcha with Drink / ¥1,300
Look at this volume of this pancake! There are 2 pieces of Matcha flavor pancakes with whip cream on top. There are some sweet red beans and sweet potatoes on their side. The pancake is very fluffy and the flavor of Matcha goes very well with the light taste of whip cream. You can choose a drink either specially selected green tea (hot or cold) or Matcha au Lait (hot or cold).
