Matcha Soft Serve

Tried the Chocolate Float with Matcha Soft Serve in October 2018!

I feel that Matchya has the best matcha softserve in Singapore because out of all the matcha softserves I've had so far, their softserve has the strongest matcha flavour and is not too sweet.

The chocolate taste in the drink is mild, so you may be disappointed if you like richer-tasting chocolate. I wouldn't get this again but I'd still come here for the matcha softserve!

I'm sad that Matchaya at Icon Village closed down recently, but they still have an outlet at the Cathay!

There is no other place in SG that serves Matcha soft serve as thick as Matchaya. But if you like your desserts sweet then you might find this abit too bitter for you.

The parfait comes with some red bean and some cereal as well as 2 types of mochi.

Overall a satisfying dessert and super worth especially with Beyond!!

Pardon the childishness, but the brownish grey soft serve literally looked like a pile of s*** when it was served. While all of us thought so, only one in our group blurted it out while the waitress served it to us.

Unlike the outlet at Cathay, Matchaya Icon Village has no seating area. You can, however, enjoy your desserts or drinks while standing at the Matchaya kiosk.

We ordered both the matcha soft serve and the mystery flavour soft serve - which happened to be Roasted Oolong. If you think Matchaya’s matcha soft serve is good, be prepared to be wowed. The roasted oolong soft serve is amazingly fragrant and carries the lovely roasted aroma of the tea very well. The flavour profile is more subtle than matcha, pleasantly creeping up on you and growing on you more with each bite. It’s also not too sweet, so all of us enjoyed this very much. The soft serve holds up quite well, and didn’t melt into a gooey mess. The butter biscuit stuck into the soft serve wasn’t particularly nice as it wasn’t as soft or fragrant as the Japanese butter biscuits we were used to, but it served its purpose as decoration quite well and didn’t get soggy despite prolonged exposure to the soft serve.

With Burpple Beyond, this set is extremely worth it and I would recommend heading down to Matchaya Icon Village to grab the Roasted Oolong mystery flavour before it’s gone!

As a matcha specialty shop, we had high expectations for Matchaya’s matcha soft serve. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. The colour of the soft serve was a rich and deep green. Unlike the more subtle Oolong flavour, the matcha soft serve was hard hitting. Each spoonful of the ice cream was like a punch of matcha, with a slight bitter aftertaste. It wasn’t too milky or sweet, just right to balance out the matcha. Will definitely satisfy matcha-holics, but won’t be the sweet treat you’re looking for if you don’t appreciate matcha! I’d rate this as a matcha level 4 against nocturne no. 5’s six matcha intensities - still ok to finish the whole ice cream by yourself without having the bitterness get to you! It’s also not too sweet, so all of us enjoyed this very much. The soft serve holds up quite well, and didn’t melt into a gooey mess. The butter biscuit stuck into the soft serve wasn’t particularly nice as it wasn’t as soft or fragrant as the Japanese butter biscuits we were used to, but it served its purpose as decoration quite well and didn’t get soggy despite prolonged exposure to the soft serve.

With Burpple Beyond, this set is extremely worth it :)

everything in the parfait was delicious (altho I prefer the jelly like warabi mochi over the chewy shiratama mochi) and I loved how the soft serve had a strong matcha flavor and not too sweet 😍

I love their matcha soft serve. BEST MATCHA SOFT SERVE I'VE HAD IN SINGAPORE!! Totally worth full price

I love matcha soft serve and Matchaya’s just hits all the right spots. The matcha flavour stands out and it is not too sweet! With the 1-for-1 soft serve & drink, it gets a bit too much as a dessert for one person, but 2 sets would share perfectly well among 4!

Really flavourful matcha right there! The biscuit was a nice complement, adding more texture to the silky soft serve.

Creamy, smooth with strong tea notes. Just the kind of dessert you’d want after a satisfying meal (at Maru, no less) to end the afternoon on a high. Owner Kevin was at the storefront, and was very helpful in recommending what to get as well!

The matcha soft serve tasted well-balanced, with sufficiently bitter notes of matcha fused with sweet milk. We also tried the white miso soft serve, which had an interesting salty taste bordering on savoury but still within conventional ice cream bounds, not unlike the salty feel of salted caramel ice cream. The latter matched well with kinkako warabi mochi.

Verdict:

Matcha - 7.5/10
White miso - 7.5/10
