Maccha House can be found at Orchard Central, and is easily accessible via the MRT (Somerset station). Orchard Central has a sheltered linkway to 313 Somerset and Orchard Gateway, both of which are directly accessible from Somerset MRT station.
I met up with C & P after work a while back, and we decided to try the food at Maccha House, as we had all never been there before.
Maccha House can be found next to the Japanese lifestyle store, Tokyu Hands, in the basement of Orchard Central. Upon arriving, we were promptly ushered to our seats, and provided with the menus to browse. With a name like “Maccha House”, you would expect that most of the dishes would be maccha-infused, but they do serve quite a good range of standard Japanese cuisine! 😉
I got myself some pork, which was pretty tasty! The salad was yummy as well, and had the Jap salad dressing that’s just so umami! 😀 The miso soup was pretty normal, and nothing to rave about.
C got some chicken hotpot with udon. I thought that it was ok, nothing particularly fantastic.
Their matcha drinks are pretty interesting, and this is their iced matcha with matcha ice cream! Pretty good in my opinion, with the matcha taste sufficiently strong, without being overpowering. The matcha ice cream was really good too heh. 🙂
We all got a (matcha) dessert platter to share as well. This was Maccha House’s Canapé Desserts; consisting of maccha tiramisu, maccha pudding with azuki, soft serve maccha ice cream, maccha nama chocolate & maccha mont blanc roll.
I loved the maccha soft serve, and the maccha tiramisu. I didn’t really like the maccha pudding with azuki, but that could also be because I’m not a huge fan of azuki. The maccha mont blanc roll & maccha nama chocolate were average in my opinion, nothing very special.
Their mains are pretty decent, and I really like their matcha soft serve ice cream. The other matcha desserts were hit-and-miss for me, and if you do go there, please do me a favour and try their matcha soft serve ice cream okay! 😀 I would recommend just going there to chill after a meal elsewhere, and get their matcha soft serve & a matcha latte for tea.
