The place was a lot more comfortable and spacious after the renovation. Great soft serves as usual. Looking forward to trying the cakes

Signature Koicha Azuki Roll Cake - $6
Rich matcha flavour cream wrapped in spongy charcoal roll. Hidden in the middle of the roll is a sweet red bean paste that’s with bit texture, help balance out the matcha bitterness. When consumed as a whole, it’s very balance & nicely executed.
Their Cha-Cha Cheesecake ($8.50) has 2 flavour in a cheesecake, which is quite unique. Worrying that all these desserts will give you sugar rush? Order a cup of Ceremonial Koicha ($8) for some thick and intense matcha, with zero sugar added. The newly renovated shop is more comfortable and the expanded menu have been rather well received, do drop by especially if you have always been a matchaya fan

Look at that gradient. Citrus on the bottom, lavender on top. Refreshing while not overly sweet. Around ~$6.

loved how my items came in such earthy japanese interior design worthy cutlery - really added to my matcha cafe experience lol (!)

lavender earl grey mille crepe // $8.50 // never really tried mille crepe cakes before so for a first timer, i would assume this fits the criteria of a decently good mille crepe cake. fluffy lavender chantilly cream paired with thin crepes made this a pleasantly palatable dessert, without the stuffed feeling after. i felt like the lavender flavor was very strong (which may be a problem if you don’t have a preference for floral type flavors) and overpowered the earl grey flavor. couldn’t rly taste any earl grey tbh, so you should only get this if you’re craving something floral and not if you want to satiate any earl grey cravings.

rose + matcha macarons // $3 each // the flavors were very intense for both macarons, which was great but the biscuit shells were a bit too crunchy for my liking as i prefer my macarons to be more chewy in the center. may be better to have your macarons elsewhere

hojicha tea // $4.50 // expensive for a single cup of tea, but with such precision in brewing and authentic roasted green tea taste, i guess it was worth it

overall, i’d come back to matchaya but maybe next time i’d stick with their ice creams instead.

Slow-cooked Chicken Cubes, Diced Carrots, Potatoes, and Daikon in Homemade Dashi Sauce, Pickled Red Ginger, Bonito Flakes, Japanese Rice.

Apart from the Tamago Sando and the various desserts making its rounds on social media, Matchaya also serves up comforting mains like the Dashi Chicken Stew now — a step further from the Matcha-centric menu which featured only desserts and beverages before its revamp of their The Cathay outlet. A rather simple and comforting dish, this was something I would look forward to if I were to crave for something soothing for the soul; the Homemade Dashi Sauce is like a stew (oh, of course) — ; savoury yet not too heavy on the taste buds, with the carrots, potatoes and daikon carrying a soft bite and the chicken cubes providing a meaty bite without being too tough nor dry. Coupled with Japanese rice, the rice comes a little less fluffy and a little dry than expected, but easily fixed when portioned with a little bit of the stew; the pickled red ginger adding a crunch and a zing to refresh the taste buds in between. Something that is fuss-free and easy to have.

$8.5 Although I personally don’t usually go for tiramisu, this was pretty good! Has a light, fluffy texture, and the matcha part was really good like the rest of their matcha stuff. The top layer tasted like a nice chocolate powder too that complemented the rest of the cake well. & the truffle on top was the best part.
