Nakamura Tokichi 中村藤吉 (Hong Kong, CHINA) ★★★☆☆

It's been a while since I last visited Nakamura Tokichi (中村藤吉), the Uji-based Japanese matcha dessert specialist. If my memory serves me correctly, this is my first visit since they moved into the third floor of Mira Mall.

Despite landing in Hong Kong for a number of years, they're still drawing modest queues every time we wanted to stop by for dessert. But obviously not today (OK, we waited for about 15 minutes but there were plenty of empty seats around)!

Iced sweetened matcha float ($68) - This was soooo good. The iced matcha was really thirst-quenching and it definitely helped to have a large scoop of matcha flavored soft serve on top too!

Maruto parfait ($98) - Their bread and butter that comes in two flavors, matcha and hojicha. Of course, we had to check out their original flavor made with Uji matcha. 

Served in their signature V-shaped glass, this famous matcha dessert comes with layers after layers of tasty textures and flavors which include puff rice, cream cheese, matcha chiffon cake, red bean, mochi and matcha jelly. It tasted a lot better than I thought!
