Having not eaten dessert as part of our dinner, Adam's evening remained unfulfilled. After a brief stroll back into the city, we came across Tsujiri, another matcha themed cafe, perhaps competition to the popular Kyo Tea House. Time for us to investigate.
The store was fairly small, drinks menu was extensive though, but largely focused again on Matcha and Houjicha with hot and cold variations with and without ice cream.
A few of their desserts had sold out, but we still saw a few things we wanted in their pastry cabinet.
Like Kyo Tea house, our number was called when our order was ready.
We had an Iced Houjicha and an O Matcha Cappuccino to share. The houjicha wasn't very strong, and it turned out to be very icy with large shards. Adam only finished about half. My O Matcha Cappuccino was intense, but quite bitter and left a powdery residue in my mouth.
Our first dessert was the houjicha crepe cake. It looked pristine but had been left out for quite a long time and become stale and hard. It was quite dry with each layer becoming somewhat brittle when broken up.
Second dessert was the Matcha Choux. This was quite enjoyable with a crisp puff pastry, delicious crumbly biscuit top and overflowing with rich matcha creme.
