The Uji Maccha Tiramisu, a No.1 best selling dessert from Kyoto Maccha House flagship store, has landed in Singapore.
10,000 servings of Kyoto Maccha House’s Uji Maccha Tiramisu are known to be sold globally each day, with queues up to 4 hours in Kyoto.
Take note though, this Tiramisu is limited to the Maccha House outlet at basement 1 of Orchard Central, and only available in the month of March.
The Uji Matcha Tiramisu is priced at 594 Yen (equivalent to SGD$7.40 at current rates) In Japan, whereas the one in Singapore is priced at SGD$7.99 (before taxes).
Legit, considering that the ingredients are flew in from Kyoto to ensure quality.
At the first look, the palm-sized Maccha Tiramisu ($7.99++) seems ordinary, with a layer of premium Kyoto’s “Morihan” matcha powder with more than 170 years of history, carefully dusted on top.
As I dug further, the silky smooth mascarpone cream separated to reveal layers of alternating vanilla chiffon and matcha sponge below the mascarpone cream.
Looked like a lot of effort was placed in assembling the dessert.
While the mascarpone cream was light and creamy without the richness (or some say jelakness), the matcha powder was overpowered by the sweetness from the mascarpone cream.
Perhaps some tweaking of the sweetness would have helped.
On the other hand, I appreciated the alternating moist layers of soft vanilla chiffon and matcha sponge which brings out more of the matcha flavours towards the end.
The ladies would appreciate the lightness (and the small portion) of the Maccha Tiramisu, whereas for the hardcore matcha lovers, looks like we will have to look elsewhere.
