It’s THE food sensation of the moment. After Tokyo and New York, where the concept is working since a good moment, the first coffee-shop dedicated to matcha is finally showing up here. Its name? Umami Matcha Café. Chronicle of an announced buzz, rush over there !
A quick reminder in terms of this magic substance with superpowers, originating in Japon. An energizing bomb and super rich in anti-oxidants, the famous green powder with a tangy taste is made from ground tea. Legend has it that to really appreciate matcha, you need three tastings...
A plump brioche, crunchy cookie, cheesecake soufflé, cappuccino, here, matcha highlights color in stunning pastries and drinks. Special kudos to the unctuous matcha latte, served with a kawaï heart-shaped cloud of milk, #tuerie.
Tops also, healthy homemade dishes with Japanese savours for lunch. Tataki of Basque beef (9€), donburi made with chicken from the Landes (14€), perfect egg and lentil salad (11€), pasta with miso white butter (13€).
Fun: the take-away and grocery space to pick up sauces, spices and saké.
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 8:30am to 6:30pm. More information on the Facebook page of Umami Matcha Café.
