- The Shop
The modern cuisine, inspired by Japanese Tea ceremonies is a new hotspot in the latest shopping experience in the heart of the city at Plaza Singapura.
Established ten years ago in Tokyo, Nana's Green Tea is a pioneer of Japanese cafe dealing with "matcha", green powdered tea. They gained popularity and became known as the 'Japanese Starbucks' where tea drinking is a culture. All green tea leaves served in the cafe are imported from Kyoto only, which is the most famous production center of "mathca", aiming at delivering genuine Japanese taste and health to modern people.
Nana's Green Tea Cafe focus on the social aspect of a Japanese tea ceremony, offering a Zen experience for family and friends who gather over a common love and respect for quality matcha and Japanese cuisine prepared with an artistic flair.
- The Food
Matcha Chocolate Latte @ $8.00 (front), Matcha Kuromitsu Latte @ $8.00 (back) (both available in hot & cold)
Front: Matcha latte with whipped cream & chocolate syrup is rich and dark with a tad of pungent aftertaste.
Back: Matcha latte with whipped cream & drizzle of caramelised brown sugar syurp leaves a sweet, long lasting aftertaste. The tea is sweet and flavourful with notes of brown sugar, but not overly sweet where it ruin the delicate flavour of matcha.
Main: Ebi Goma Dare Udon @ $14.80
Cold Udon noodle served with prawns & avocado, tomato in Nana's special sesame sauce. The sauce has a rich consistency and fragrant of sesame even it is on a lighter taste.
Main: Locomoko Don @ $15.80
Beef patty add some spice to your routine, served over warm Japanese rice instead the usual beef burger. Garnished with lettuce, tomato, broccoli, and an egg sunny side up. The beef patty has a lovely texture and bite.
Main: Ebi Fried Curry Udon @ $14.80
The thick and chewy udon was a good contrast to the crispy ebi fried prawns with Japanese curry.
Side: Salmon Carpaccio @ $8.80
Fresh salmon carpaccio with daikon sprout and salad dressing. The entree was impressive with an awesome aroma of sesame and citrus dressing. A deliciously fresh way to start a meal.
Side: Yakitori Chicken @ $5.80
Grilled chicken and Japanese leek roasted with yakitori sauce.
Dessert: Matcha Shiratama Parfait @ $11.80
An artisan dessert starting with a layer of kanten jelly and matcha syrup then topped with soft serve vannila ice cream, generous layer of corn flakes and garnished with a matcha ice cream, red bean paste, mochi, whipped cream and a drizzle of matcha syrup. Combination of flavours and textures with crispy, creamy and chewy layers leave a tantalizing sweet finish to your meal. I don't have a sweet tooth, but I somewhat like the dessert.
- My Opinion
The food are on a lighter taste compare to most Japanese food, which is great for health conscious diners. The Ebi Goma Dare Udon and Salmon Carpaccio are my favorite among the dishes we tried.
Matcha-lovers must not miss their signature matcha beverages and desserts. I would go back again to try the teas and desserts, they look really appetizing.
