Matcha Latte

$5.00 · 27 Reviews

Wasn’t too crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Had the matcha latte + espresso and it was AMAZING. Absolutely loved how smooth it was!

Just like what Kyoto and the surrounding region do really well, the Singapore outpost of Kurasu does their matcha latte equally well. It seems that they get their own matcha supplies from Uji itself, and the difference in milk used does not seem to make this drink less special than its original counterpart. The seating area is small, talk long sofas with social distancing markers, and post lunch it can be crowded from students and office workers nearby, but the staff are still very prompt and friendly manning this new spacious, airy, Kyoto-esque feel space of theirs.

The glorious 𝙈𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙖 𝙇𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚(~$5), which is made from matcha powder from Kyoto, was best described as ‘coming home after a long day to the comfort of your bed’. Served at the perfect warm temperature instead of scalding hot (the way many places do it), the matcha powder melds well with the milk without clumping.

Velvety and light, this matcha latte was sweeter than your typical bitter brews, yet not sweet like your flavoured lattes.

Consider ditching neighbour Hvala once for this: you might be surprised 🥰

I have hear about this place long time ago and finally made my trip here. Located on the second floor of Ocean Tower, the actual location is actually the lower building in front of it. Look for their signage along the walkway and take the lift up to 2nd floor.

The cafe is situated within the co-working space so expect the office setting layout of seats here.

I came during afternoon so I ordered this as I don’t want to consume anymore coffee. The matcha doesn’t taste strong enough and overwhelming by the milk. Probably I should try their coffee next time.

The bittersweet flavour from the matcha and sweetness from the frothed milk makes this cup such an enjoyable one at anytime of the day.

Matcha latte with 1 shot of espresso - this was definitely the best matcha latte I’ve had yet! The flavours were perfectly balanced - strong matcha flavour with an equally robust espresso shot. I really loved this, and I’ll be back for it again.

Hot Matcha Latte was creamy and calming. It had enough Matcha yet its not bitter. The Iced White was almost like dessert, even without any sugar. The coffee had an almost malty afternote and that really matched with the creamy milk.

Set on the second floor of Odeon Towers, this Kyoto-born brand gets our vote for quiet afternoons with excellent coffee. The off-menu Dirty Matcha ($6) is a unique and delicious choice — smooth Matcha Latte spiked with an nutty espresso shot. Otherwise, all the espresso-based coffees are great, and they usually have something nice for filtered options!

Matcha latte ($6) plus 1 shot of espresso ($1). I have never liked the matcha + espresso combination, but this was unexpectedly good. Would definitely go back to try their other drinks!
