I’ve been a fan of matcha for almost three years now and since then I would try any matcha-flavored snack or drink that I see on a store’s menu. I also try to check out (and whenever my wallet permits 😂) new matcha dessert places that I see online.
And since Trisha (forever matcha buddy!!!) was in town, we went on our matcha-dventure to Kissako Uji Matcha Cafe as planned 💚
It was relatively full when we arrived at the cafe last Saturday afternoon. We started browsing their menu but we had a hard time choosing what to order since we wanted to try everything LOL From matcha lattes, parfaits, pastries and even matcha ramen, it was matcha heaven I swear!!! 😭
Trisha had to quickly fall in line since there was only one piece of matcha crepe left at the counter (we missed the matcha shortcake by a few minutes huhuhu) I suggest you come in earlier since the cafe has few seats and their cakes/drinks also sell out fast.
We decided to go with the last piece of their matcha crepe, matcha ramen and matcha parfait. And after around 30 minutes, our food finally came. TA-DA!!! 💚
We first tried the matcha ramen and it was perfect!!! We had some doubts before ordering it but it was really good (let me savor it again in my memory😍) I loved the meat and soup that I was literally slurping it down to the last sip 😋
Next was the crepe cake (see that matcha syrup draping!!!) It was also good but I think the matcha wasn’t too strong for me. I was craving for more flavor on it, good thing it was paired with the syrup. Last, we had the matcha parfait. We had to eat it quickly since the ice cream was already melting hahaha I loved how it has everything from matcha ice cream, matcha brownies, matcha jellies, rice cakes, red beans, cornflakes and nata jellies.
Overall, I give Kissako 💚💚💚💚 (4 out of 5 hearts) since it really did satisfy our matcha cravings. Next time, we’ll really go earlier and hopefully we get to try their other matcha cakes, matcha pudding parfait and more hihihi 😊
Kissako Uji Matcha Cafe is located at Pioneer Centre in Pasig and SM Mall of Asia in Pasay.
