I love Hvala for its aesthetics - it’s such a lovely place to sit down with friends for HTHTs with your favourite matcha treats, although it does get a bit echoey and noisy on a crowded weekend. I prefer the weekdays where the place is emptier, it’s great for some quiet me time to unwind, with a warm matcha latte in hand🍡.

This sweet potato cake surprised me because I didn’t expect much of it given that their specialities are matcha treats. The sponge is fluffy, with a hint of sweetness from the cream and the sweet potatoes.
