Matcha sweets decorated like a garden in bowl
Just turn left at the first corner from Keifuku Dentetsu Arashiyama Line Arashiyama station, the entrance of eXCAFE appears in front of you. The café offers a wide range of original Japanese sweets. Most of these are made with Matcha (Japanese green tea). Kyoto kuro Matcha roll cake that is a popular sweet in the café, is covered with bamboo charcoal paste in a sponge cake. Also, We highly recommend having green tea Soba carbonara! It is not that crazy! Please have a try. It is worth having! Both of them as well as other dishes look like a garden on the dish. There are Japanese gardens that you can look at, cleaned carefully by staff everyday. The garden you can look at differs according to the table taken. You will receive a warm welcome by the staff in Kimono. Make yourself relaxed by listening to the Japanese traditional instrumental music playing in the background.
Kyoto Kuro Maru Kuromaru Matcha / ￥1,130 (with drink)
Natural taste of creamed Matcha is rolled by a bamboo charcoal in a sponge cake. the flavor is very delicate, but it is told that bamboo charcoal paste is good for your health in Japan. It is garnished like a garden on the golden plate so that it gets more gorgeous looking. It can be great with drinking Matcha.
Tenryu-ji Parfait / ￥900
It looks like the garden in Tenryu-ji Temple. Huge Matcha and roasted tea ice cream will satisfy your stomach. Organic tea leaves are used for them. Enjoy a taste with Matcha bracken-starch dumpling or seasonal sweets.
Green tea Soba Carbonara / ￥1,060
It is rare isn't it? However, its taste is absolutely fantastic! It is served with some bacons and row egg. As you have it, you will feel savoy sauce with a flavor of Soba clearly at the same time. If you are Soba eater, you MUST order! It comes along with 3 toppings of cheese, Japanese pickles, and salted kelp. Try to add them to enjoy the changes of its taste.
“HOKU-HOKU” Odango Set / ￥1,220
You can grill these skewered white and Japanese mugwort dango dumplings yourself. After grilling the dango you can dip them in mitarashi sweet soy sauce or coarse sweet red bean paste. Both of these sauces go perfectly with the dango, the mitarashi is rich and the red bean paste is not too sweet. It’s also nice that you can fine-tune the cooking time yourself. The taste is of course good, but grilling them is fun, which is why I recommend this dango dish.
