Tokyo: St. Marc Cafe (many locations)

On our last trip to Tokyo, we fell in love with their soft serve ice cream paired with flaky Danish, but never got to try their matcha desserts because the Danish was always too tempting.

This time, we made sure we tried the matcha desserts!

Unfortunately, they turned out to be a big disappointment. The mochi balls were half-frozen and were a weird consistency – goopy, wet, too soft in some parts and rock hard in other parts. The azuki beans were also a little too hard (also a bit frozen perhaps?). Having tried their perfect Danish desserts, these matcha ones really paled in comparison. Next time we’re in the mood for matcha, we’ll head straight to Gion Tsujiri instead…
