Maccha House 抹茶館 at Orchard Central

We dropped by this newly opened Kyoto restaurant chain after 1hr plus of window shopping at Orchard Central. The bright green and clean decor was pretty eye catching and the photos of matcha desserts on display had successfully enticed us to settle down for an afternoon tea break.

This place serves both main meals (don & ramen) and green tea desserts & beverages. After studying the menu for a while, I've decided to try their Maccha Soft Serve Anmitsu, an ice cream dessert served with azuki beans, fruit bits and kanten jelly (a.k.a. agar agar locally). The dessert set comes with a cup of tea and a shot of sweet house made green tea syrup for the jelly. It was quite nice but a tad pricey at $7.90 (similar dessert at MOF was selling at $6.20 and serving was bigger).

My friends ordered the Mixed Dorayaki set and Maccha Soy Milk pudding...My friend said the Dorayaki pancake was overcooked and the overly huge lump of whipped cream makes the dessert hard to enjoy, however the ice cream was nice though. The Maccha soy pudding was extremely bitter and after pouring 2 shot glasses of syrup didn't helped dispel the bitter aftertaste on the tongue. I guess this dessert is best ordered by a matcha fan.

The 90 seater outlet is owned by Create Restaurants Holdings, which also owns Chiso Zanmai buffet restaurant at Clarke Quay, casual Japanese restaurant Hifumi at Plaza Singapura's Atrium@Orchard, and Shabu Shabu restaurant Shabu Sai at Causeway Point.
