Matcha is love. Matcha is life.

Anyone with an obsession with matcha as unhealthy as ours will probably attest to the truth of this statement.

In the past couple of years, we’ve seen more and more Japanese joints setting up shop in Singapore. What that also means is more matcha-centric creations available right here on our shores. From hot lattes to cold parfaits, there are so many different ways to satisfy your matcha craving these days.

We rounded up a list of 7 places to get your hit of matcha, and we think you’ll love what we have in store for you.

1. Sun with Moon

This popular spot in town is well-known for its exquisite bento sets and signature kamameshi dishes. But something not as many people know is it dishes up some mean matcha flavoured desserts!

Check out their Matcha Tiramisu ($7.80) – layers of cream and matcha in perfect balance, topped with a dusting of matcha powder. Crumbly and firm, your fork will be kept busy as you dig into this matcha masterpiece.

Not in the mood for cake? They also serve the Matcha Parfait ($9.80). A tower of green goodness, this parfait is topped with matcha sponge, mochi, matcha jelly, red bean, and a scoop of matcha ice cream. Picture perfect with its colourful toppings and with a variety of textures, this parfait is truly a treat for the taste buds.

2. Non Entrée Dessert Café

If you haven’t heard of Non Entrée Dessert Café, where you have you been?

This dessert joint along up-and-coming hipster area, Rangoon Road, serves gorgeous cakes, and desserts with a dramatic flair.

Known for their unique local ice cream flavours (think: kaya toast ice cream) and deceptive bak chor mee dessert, one of their other signature items is the Avalanche Dessert.

For matcha lovers, Non Entrée’s Matcha Avalanche ($13.90) does not disappoint!

Photogenic, tasty, and a joy to watch in action, you and your friends will be fighting over who gets to do the honours. The matcha lave cake sits atop an almond nougatine which covers the bowl. Slice into the cake, and watch the matcha lava flow into the bowl, onto the roasted green tea ice cream and chocolate soil mixture underneath.

With its explosion of flavours and textures, this unique dish is definitely a winner!

3. Dolce Tokyo

A crowd favourite here is the Matcha with Goma Black Sesame Cake ($11.50). The matcha cake is fluffy and light, rich with the flavours of both black sesame and matcha. Served in a bird cage that was specially brought in from Japan, it’s no wonder this matcha dish is all over Instagram!

4. Kooks Creamery

At this humble café in Serangoon, they serve up the delicious combo of cookies and ice cream.

You’ve heard of lava cakes, lava cream puffs… but have you heard of the lava cookie? The lava cookie is Kooks Creamery’s spin on the fun lava trend. A Matcha Molten Cookie will set you back $5.50, and it comes in a chocolate flavour too.

We recommend the Lava Cookie Set ($8.50), which consists of a molten cookie topped with a scoop of ice cream. Not enough matcha? Double up on matcha by pairing your cookie with Matcha Ice Cream ($3.60 per scoop, + $0.50 for premium flavours). After all, is there such a thing as too much matcha?

Blk 211, Serangoon Avenue 4, #01-02, Singapore 550211

One of their specials is the Pancake Soufflé Style with Matcha and Ogura Bean Paste ($13.50). This fluffy soufflé pancake is served with matcha sauce, black beans, mochi skin and matcha ice cream. Because they’re freshly made on the spot, you’ll have to wait for about 20 minute for this. If you ask us, it’s completely worth the wait!

From the simple Hot Matcha Latte ($3.80) to the multi-textured and multi-flavoured Matcha Chocolate Parfait ($10), you’ll have a hard time settling on just one item.

Matcha Tiramisu (Image Credit: Wanwei)

One dessert that deserves a special mention is the Matcha Tiramisu ($6). Served in a wooden box, the tiramisu is not too sweet, with the matcha flavours taking centre stage–just the way we like it. Paired with the cutest cup of tea, this dessert certainly brought out the zen in us

One of them is the Matcha Anmitsu ($8.80), a classic combo of matcha ice cream, azuki red bean and matcha jelly. The slight bitterness of the matcha ice cream is balanced off by the sweet red beans, with the jelly providing an added oomph of texture. A tiny jug of syrup is served on the side if you need more of a sweet hit!
