Matcha molten cake

Restaurants Cafés Sunway

A warm, gooey matcha cream filling gushes out of this elegant architecture when you pry it open with a fork. Softcore gives the dessert a luscious upgrade with a side of red bean paste, candied calamansi and homemade vanilla ice cream topped with a sesame tuile.

O-matcha soft ice cream

Restaurants Cafés Damansara

Go back to basics with a matcha soft serve – the cone of aromatic, nuanced, slightly astringent swirls with a creamy finish will cool you down in no time. We recommend toppings: chocolate chips, red bean or shiratama are good choices.

Matcha gateaux chocolate parfait

Restaurants Japanese Mid Valley City

If done right, a parfait achieves an otherworldly texture somewhere between cream and cloud. Better, Nana’s version is enhanced with several components: a layer of kanten jelly, matcha syrup, vanilla soft serve, corn flakes, red bean paste, and the crowning glory, delicious gateaux.
