We decided on the genmaicha cake because we each had matcha and hojicha drinks. This completes the x3 cha cha cha selections? 😂

It was love at first bite with the strong earthy and roasty notes of the genmaicha cake. Y’know some real bits of genmaicha has gotten into the making of this cake! It wasn’t at all cloying despite it being coated with cream. Cream-cake-sable ratio was perfect. We also love how the cake wasn’t overly sweet. It was pretty addictive to savour and I guess I found my fav cake here!

While we usually go for the lighter and cheaper Yuki Matcha at Hvala, we decided to be brave and try the ceremonial-grade Kaze Matcha today! The drink is served in a nice bowl and colour-wise, it is of a much darker green compared to the Yuki Matcha.

Just to highlight, the drink is *extremely* bitter so you are strongly not advised to get the drink if you have a sweet tooth! Go for the Yuki Matcha instead as it comes with an option to sweeten the drink lightly. That being said, we love the astringent taste in the Kaze Matcha and the drink is a lot more full-bodied and grassy compared to the cheaper matcha options at many other cafes in Singapore! The Kaze Matcha at Hvala does not come cheap at $8.80++ but it is definitely worth a try for the pure matcha lovers out there!

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, Hvala has restricted guests to a one-hour dining duration so you may want to bear that in mind when making plans. In addition, the restaurant is really popular on weekends so you should be prepared to queue to get a table here. Nonetheless, the simple and lightly-coloured interior makes for a pretty tranquil atmosphere as you savour your matcha drink.😁

Nice ambience, not too crowded on a weekday afternoon. Nice place to do work or just want some quiet time. Do note that they have a time limit of 60-90mins(can't remember the exact time).

Recommend the sweet potato cake! Plenty of sweet potatoes, cake is light and fluffy, not too sweet. Won't make you feel bloated or jelat.

Yuzu drink was not bad too. Good to drink during hot weather. Taste of yuzu is not too strong. I would still go for the matcha based drinks since Hvala specialises in matcha.

Will definitely come back again to try out the rest of the items on their menu. <3

Matcha Houjicha Latte [$5.80] and Matcha Petit Gateau [$8.80]

Houjicha's roasted flavour complemented really well with the richness of matcha. Excellent blend of both. The cake, super matcha rich, was so smooth and dense. So heavenly.
