This former strictly pop-up-only store has found a permanent home in the CBD. Nestled within Icon Village, swing by the adorable takeaway stand with your colleagues for a taste of their lusciously rich, creamy soft serve ($5.90). Excellent tea-flavoured ice creams are hard to come by (we often lament a too sorbet-like texture or a barely-there tea flavour), but Matchaya gets it right — intensely tea-infused and holds up well despite the blazing heat. At the moment, they offer three flavours, namely Matcha, Houjicha and Milk, but we hear there are new flavours to look forward to — just ask the friendly store owners. Only one flavour is available everyday, so it's best to check their Facebook for regular updates. We make it a point to head down to Matchaya whenever our favourite Houjicha flavour is available — it's so incredibly dense, flavourful and creamy that it bears a close resemblance to a strongly brewed cup of houjicha!
Avg price: $5 per person
