Maccha House

Matcha Lovers out there, this is something that cannot be missed! If you are in Orchard, do visit the basement of Orchard Central and you will find Maccha House waiting for your patronization.

Maccha House serves Maccha treats from drinks to dessert. They also serve simple Japanese Food too. I got the chance to visit when my friends decided to have part 2 of our gathering session after our main meal at Orchard Gateway and we literally sit and chit chat there till lights were shut off and most of the staff were preparing to end there work.

We can never miss out beverages especially when we are planning for a chit chat session. I started off with my Maccha Shiratama (Rice Dumplings) & Azuki bean (Red Beans) latte. The first sip had concluded the standard in Maccha House and they are definitely not opened for the sake of the vibe. As compared to those Green Tea Latte served in coffee joints and St Marc Cafe, this gave a better after taste as well as a refreshing treat. Thus I would say Happiness is a cup of wonderful Maccha Latte.

Maccha Latte Float is another variation of their Latte drinks. It has a very good Maccha Scent and was not too creamy. Looking straight and into its kitchen, i learned that the amount of Maccha used were measured precisely by the kitchen helpers and every cup of it was served at its best condition.

The girls who were not too keen on cold beverages took up the fun in preparation of the traditional Maccha. About half a table spoon of Maccha Powder was given in a bowl and all patrons has to do is to hands-on by pouring the hot water into the bowl and use the wooden stirrer to dissolve it.

 Dipped into sweet ginger syrup and showered with peanut dust, I was glad that we have 1 Mochi each as the ginger syrup taste was not really my style.

Interesting made Maccha Tiramisu hold in a little crate like container served with a cup of Hojicha. Layers of soft vanilla sponge cake with Macarpone cream cheese and spreaded evenly with Maccha Powder.

It looked so delicate that we do not bear to dig our spoon in.

Look at the elegant twirls from the Maccha Soft Serve and its sensational texture. The combination of the ice cream served in the modern Japanese stone dish together with fruits, Auzuki Beans and Shiratama were simply eye pleasing. Smooth and cooling when it touched our tongue, there were no bitter taste from the Maccha. Instead, we were satisfied in its level of sweetness. A cup of Hojicha was provided to clear the taste in the mouth after such indulgence.

Dark Green Syrup / Coloring was also provided to enhance the plain green soft serve. Just look at the color contrast from the green, have it enticed you yet?

Let it flow!
Maccha House is a good place in Orchard to gather for some snacks or desserts after a big meal in Orchard. It is rather popular as I observed the crowd as well as the turn over is fast. I would not mind bringing my friends here after dining or shopping in Orchard.
