Crazy for matcha? Check out all the varie-tea of green tea desserts you should have right now including molten cakes, parfaits, soft serve ice cream and even green tea butter.
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.
A toasty warm croissant served with homemade matcha butter is the dessert we didn’t know we needed in the city. Tear off a piece of the flaky croissant and mop up the addictive butter, made by Melissa Pong of Mei by Fat Spoon. Sweet and creamy with a full-on matcha flavour, the green tea butter also comes in pretty wrapped bars to take home.

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.
