For the matcha milk beverage, you can opt for either kyoho grape or strawberry reduction sauce which I opted for the latter, having tried the former on my previous visit. Personally prefer the kyoho grape version which had a flavour resembling that of a grape yakult coupled with a subtle lingering earthy note. The strawberry version felt more like a sweetened and diluted matcha milk beverage IMO. Nevertheless, I adore the calpis softserve which was smooth, creamy and milky which felt like a hybrid of frozen yogurt and yakult, a tangy and refreshing one that was comforting and pleasant to the palate! 😋 [PS: It’s also available as a softserve in silo with your choice of kyoho grape, strawberry and even yuzu reduction sauce - which I am gonna get on my next visit 💖] .

Throwback to Matchaya’s last seasonal offer - their Yamanashi Momo Peach Calpis Float ($8.50).

I like to think of this a sophisticated version of a peach-flavoured Yakult if there were one! 😋🍑 I loved how refreshing it was as well as how it embodied a delightful balance of tartness and peachy sweetness! I think it’s one of their first times venturing into the sour territory flavour-wise, and I have to say - I loved it! 🤩 (7.8/10)

Last week’s momo softserve wasn’t really quite my thing, it was reminiscent of Yakult/Vitagen but too sweet. Thought the momo flavours could be more outstanding!

So glad I made it in time for this week’s mystery flavour, the Kyoho Grape. Since it’s fruity, I opted to have the soft serve in a float instead.
Composed of Calpis soda and Kyoho grape syrup, this was wonderfully refreshing and thankfully, not too sweet.

🍇💜 Apart from the seasonal softserve, @matchayasg has also come up with uniquely interesting beverages derived from kyoho grapes - swipe to the end to view the offerings! .
Do note that the kyoho grape softserve is not part of this beverage but an add-on upon special request. Thanks @matchayasg for the special customization and it was amazing how the softserve managed to stay afloat on the non ice blended beverage! ✨ It was initially served in a perfect, straight up form but unfortunately, due to my careless hands, part of it slanted to one side 😢. The triple layer beverage comprised of a base layer of kyoho grape, topped with fresh milk and lastly a freshly whisked uji matcha shot.However this visual effects is only a temporary feast for the sight as you would have to mix everything together to drink it. The end result was one that was refreshing, with a pleasant fruity sweetness and a subtle earthy note of matcha. The matcha flavour is distinct albeit mild, with the bulk of flavours coming from the milky, fruity sweetness of kyoho grapes mixed in with fresh milk that somehow reminded me of a less sweet version of ribena. On the other hand, the kyoho grape softserve could be a tad sweet for those without a sweet tooth and hence I was recommended to consume it separately from the beverage to prevent a conflict with the uji matcha shot. Despite the seemingly exotic combination, the end result surprisingly turned out to be one that was refreshing, enjoyable, though not an ideal choice for the current rainy season 😅 . .

Post Christmas celebration and also just in time for a brand new year 🌟 , the ice blended Nama chocolate mint was thick, creamy like a frappe but still contained bits of inevitable ice crystals at the base. The bittersweet cocoa flavour came with a distinct, lingering cooling and refreshing minty aftertaste. The little red crystals sprinkled atop the matcha softserve came as a pleasant surprise that further elevated not only the visual effects but the current post Christmas and pre- New year atmosphere as well 💖. Fans of mint would definitely enjoy this concoction, with its distinct flavour that stole the limelight from its earthy matcha companion .

Price is higher than the usual standard cup but the portion seems to be more ✌🏻. The lingering minty flavour was a refreshing note to the luscious, bittersweet chocolate which surprisingly overshadowed the earthy, bitter undertone of matcha. As a fan of mint, I really enjoyed this combination with the distinct and lingering cooling, minty flavour providing a great counterbalance to the otherwise rich and heavy elements. The dark chocolate shavings also added a pleasant crisp factor while adding a bittersweet cocoa flavour. Just realized that my favourite default topping of the Langue de chat cookie is missing though 😭. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t mind giving this flavour a 2nd shot 👍🏻 By the way, there’s seasonal chocolate mint beverages as well! Time to try that on my next visit 😉 . [PS: The cute little matchaya icons are inedible btw! But I kept them as a souvenir 🙈] .

Christmas cheer at Matchaya comes in the form of this limited edition perky yumminess.
Swirled together with their signature Matcha is the seasonal Nama Choco Mint. The decorations are shavings of dark chocolate, sparkly pink minty crystals and a pair of cute Japanese illustrations of the co-founders (this last item isn’t edible so don’t forget to pluck them out before digging in 😊).
In summary, a nicely balanced dessert that leaves a pleasant subtle tingle in the mouth.

Initially wanted to satisfy my softserve cravings today and decided to specially make a trip to sample their matcha + Nama choc Mint softserves. But it was not available for the day (faulty softserve dispenser?), so I had to make do with the next best Christmas limited edition option. Love the well balanced Nama choc mint ice blend, which was not too sweet and not too minty (stirring in the espuma can help adjust the sweetness too) . The super rich matcha softserve with bitter after notes definitely made my day :)

Kuri Parfait ($8.50)

It’s back! My favourite seasonal flavour @matchayasg ! Think rum-soaked chestnut bits and chestnut paste swirled with the dense chestnut softserve! Only for this week!!

[Ended] This was honestly the first seasonal flavour from Matchaya that I had difficulty in finishing. It had a more considerable weight on my palate as compared to the previous flavours, so I was already feeling the impending sense of chocolate coma when I was barely halfway through this. 😫 That doesn’t make it unlikable at all though. I really liked the concentrated dark chocolate flavour and the dainty acidity I got with every lick. And also how it is reduced in sweetness, usual of Matchaya!

Looks like I’ve learnt my lesson - to not overestimate my tolerance for any flavour that sounds like heavy as this. Next time this flavour comes around, I’m either sharing or getting a smaller size! 😂 (7.3/10)

Dusted with what seemed like icing sugar, the snowflakes imparted a Christmas alike theme that is suited for the approaching seasons of giving ❄️. The darker version of Nama choc unfortunately had no significant difference to the original version IMO. However I still enjoyed the luscious, bittersweet chocolatey flavour and the creamy, thick texture of the softserve 💖. It was still a rich, intense and chocolatey one that had a lingering bittersweet flavour. Though I wouldn’t mind for a higher intensity definitely 😝. [PS: only available at the Icon village outlet].

[Available only at Icon Village til 3rd Dec] After a couple of spoonfuls and then some, I finally understood why those vocal about their love for the this seasonal softserve from Matchaya have been unwavering in declaring this as ‘underrated’. The distinguishable smoky aftertaste of the Genmaicha Parfait takes its time in lingering on the palette. It’s one flavour that will put off the people who view desserts merely as a narrow catacomb of sweetness instead of a open plain where a plethora of flavours exist in harmony. And rightfully so.

F&B businesses have to constantly be on their toes when it comes to churning out fresh, unique, relevant and great-tasting products. Matcha, Houjicha and Goma are ascending towards ubiquity, while Genmaicha is flying under the radar. Matchaya has never been one to shy away from banging the drum for any flavour that isn’t trendy, but they’re also one to count on if you’re scouring for good quality - this is how they play their cards. The Genmaicha is unarguably all the things I’ve mentioned above.

All the seasonal flavours that have come and gone have all had their fair share of foibles. The Genmaicha is no different from this in all honesty. The espuma and kuromitsu’s combined sweetness was almost intemperate, rendering it slightly out of place. Yet, like all its antecedents, the flavour holds its own pretty darn well, and may actually surprise you - only if you’re up for trying something new. (7.8/10)
