Matcha desserts were THE MOST IN thing for Hong Kong cafes these few years. Possibly one of the must-go cafes for matcha fans, Via Tokyo serves Japanese desserts, pastries and soft serves made with Kyoto matcha powder and Hokkaido milk.

Interestingly, the very popular Via Tokyo is from Hong Kong, not Tokyo. However, you would know the desserts they serve are of reasonable good quality after tasting their stuff.

They had opened their 2nd outlet at Tsim Sha Tsui and expanded on their cakes selection such as Uji Matcha Cheesecake and shaved ice Uji Matcha Espuma Kakigori.

The Japanese dessert cafe has proven to be very popular among the youths, so much so that there is always a line wee hours into the night.

It is opened till 11pm on a daily basis.

Being one of the most searched dessert place on OpenRice Hong Kong at one point of time with their range of green matcha desserts, their Hojicha flavour desserts which are only available on Wednesday (known as Reverse Tokyo) is my favourite.

Rich, milky with distinct hojicha taste that lingers.

If you want the best of three worlds, get the 3-flavoured Waffle Cup (HKD55, SGD9.25) which also includes Royal Milk Tea soft serve and a mix of shiratama.

What I like about Via Tokyo is that they continue to reinvent themselves, and the seasonal Black Sesame flavour continue to be worth the calories.

Oh, the lingering unique taste of goma in smooth and creamy soft serve.

A cone goes for HKD35 (SGD5.88), what I had the Black Sesame Parfait (HKD62, SGD10.40) which came complete with soft chewy mocha and irresistible red bean towards the bottom.

I wished there were a notch less sweet, but my sense is Hong Kongers generally have a sweet tooth.
