Description: The cake are generally not too sweet. They are both recommended to try as overall is the sesame cake is unique & melt in your mouth :)

First time visiting Hvala at CHIJMES although we have been to the takeaway stand at 313 Somerset basement a few times. The matcha latte has always been consistent at 313 and it is equally good at the CHIJMES cafe. It’s thick, and the matcha notes are really strong. There’s just enough milk to balance out the bitterness and Hvala’s is probably as close to matcha latte perfection as anyone can get. At its price point, it is actually comparable or even cheaper than Starbucks and other coffee joints. So if you’re looking for a dedicated matcha place and don’t want coffee, this is where you should head for sure.

I’ve ordered this at the takeaway stand at 313 Somerset before and liked it a lot - fortunately, the standard at the CHIJMES cafe is just as high! I love that the option for both matcha and Houjicha in one drink is available at Hvala because it’s perfect for people who can’t decide (aka me). The roasted notes of the Houjicha at the base even out the bitterness of the matcha, and they’re both nicely blended together by the milk in the middle. Also, how instagrammable is this drink because of the 3 gorgeous layers of separation? #basic but I don’t care. This drink is one for the fickle matcha lovers like myself who can’t decide and want the best of both worlds!
