ah, the by-now-famous flowing green matcha lava cake at this small restaurant in jalan besar. it’s a bit of a seedy area interspersed with these hipster, modern places – not the most comfortable area for ladies to be walking about late at night, but at least it’s relatively close to the main road.
I thought the food was just about alright – good for a first visit, and the cake was pretty good, but the food came very slowly, so we rather lost our patience.
my favourite japanese dessert place at the moment – located in this nondescript open cafe in the new 100am mall. it’s been quite a week, and I can’t wait for it to be over – a matcha soft-serve at the moment sounds like it could be the cure to all this fatigue.
this is the first singaporean outpost of a fifteen-decades-old kyotoian dessert store, and it reminds me of all the tea-time (and post-breakfast and pre-lunch and post-lunch and you-get-what-I-mean) sit-downs I had in japan composed of all this green-tea loveliness.
p.s. that’s my dad’s attempt at teenage enthusiasm in the background.
