As the much-loved food trend of 2016, matcha was definitely well-received in the Filipino food culture, with its presence in almost everything: from ice creams, to cakes, to even snacks. Admit it, this new flavor brought an interesting take on food and drinks, not only because of its taste, but also because of the health benefits it brings.
Seems that this year will be a good year for matcha aficionados of Manila: Tsujiri has finally opened in S’Maison, Conrad Manila in Pasay! And because we know you’re excited to see what they have to offer, here’s a sneak peek to what they have and what they’re about to serve in the future.
Tsujiri is a matcha-themed café in S’Maison serving mostly desserts and pastries to its guests. With a seating capacity of less than thirty, this intimate café offers quality desserts in the form of matcha-flavored delicacies. Their ceremony-grade matcha, according to the owner, was delivered straight from Japan to ensure that their food is as authentic as it can get.
