Recently, I was invited to a food tasting at Nana’s Green Tea located in the Atrium at Plaza Singapura #03-80/82. I’ve brought along three blogger friends with me. I’ve never done any food sampling blog post before and this will be my first.
About Nana’s Green Tea
Established ten years ago in Tokyo, ʻʻNanaʼs Green Teaʼʼ is a pioneer of Japanese cafe dealing with ʻʻMatchaʼʼ, green powdered tea.
“Nana’s Green Tea” gained popularity and became known as the ʻJapanese Starbucksʼ where tea drinking is a culture. Nanaʼs Green Tea Cafe was also awarded the No.1 brand among Japanese cafe. All green tea leaves served in the Café are imported from Kyoto only, which is the most famous production center of ʻʻMatchaʼʼ, aiming at delivering genuine Japanese taste and health to modern people. Our aim is to introduce the finest Japanese food culture and tradition to the world and enrich people’s life.
Do you know about the health benefits of matcha green tea?
Aside from being super yummy, it is known to be a powerful antioxidant that helps to such as burn fat, protect against heart disease and diabetes, lower blood pressure, improve immunity and prevent cancer.
There are wide range of matcha drinks served at Nana’s Green Tea. For example matcha green tea or matcha latte drink serves with espresso, milk, whipped cream, drizzle of caramelised brown sugar, chocolate sauce, mocha, red bean paste, and many more. Do check out the roasted green tea drink (HOJI-CHA), I haven’t tried it before, I heard it is good!
(Above) I’ve ordered Matcha Chocolate Latte, is Matcha latte with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. I like this drink pretty much, the sweetness is just perfect.
Nana’s Green Tea also serves a wide range of Japanese food and desserts including sushi and udon.
Below are some of the food we ordered.
(Above) Locomoko Don – Beef patty served over warm Japanese rice garnished with lettuce, tomato, broccoli, and an egg sunny side up.
(Above) Unagi Mabushi Don – Grilled soy marinated eel served over warm Japanese and garnished with sesame, nori and spring onion.
(Above) This was what I’ve ordered, Maguro & Avocado Don. It tastes relatively nice and it is healthy too. Maguro is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and avocado is high in antioxidant. The maguro tastes fresh however the rice tastes pretty plain, hope there is more vinegar in it.
I must say this Salmon Carpaccio tastes really good! All of us love it very much! The salmon just melts in my mouth! Super yummy! Must try! We also ordered the Maguro Carpaccio however I personally prefer the Salmon version. Maguro Carpaccio tastes too salty for me.
That’s all for today, hope you like my short food sampling blog post. See ya soon!
