From ice cream, yogurt, and lattes, baked into desserts, infused into chocolate bars, Matcha offers a whole variety of sumptuous sweets.


Japanese food culture is abundant in Jakarta. You can easily find authentic Japanese cuisine, like Ramen, Sushi, or simple street food like Okonomiyaki. Aside from their selection of sumptuous meals, another Japanese food trend that people immensely love is Matcha.

Matcha has become extremely popular outside of Japan because of its high antioxidant content and broad range of potential health advantages. It is now added to ice cream, yogurt, and lattes, baked into desserts, infused into chocolate bars, and more.
