A perfect matcha
At PABLO, only premium quality ITO EN matcha makes the cut for its enticing desserts.
Matcha, an integral part of Japan’s tea ceremonies for over 900 years, is also a versatile ingredient in confectionery. Cheese tart specialist PABLO is a champion of matcha. Hailing from Japan, Pablo launched a 78-seater PABLO café at Wisma Atria in 2017 and has recently expanded to Nex and Holland Piazza, with a fourth outlet in the works.
It comes as no surprise that ITO EN’S high quality matcha is the choice du jour for the famed brand.
The leaves are meticulously selected, steamed, dried and ground into a fine powder to achieve a rich, smooth texture and bring out its delectable umami note. Best of all, ITO EN’S matcha is packed with health benefits. it contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a powerful anti-oxidant with cancer-fighting properties, vitamin C, and detoxifying properties. It’s also rich in polyphenols, which is known to increase metabolism and fortify the immune system.
Not only does ITO EN matcha go swimmingly with many of PABLO’S east-meets-west creations, it adds an invitingly vivid green shade. In the popular Matcha Freshly Baked Cheese Tart, the batter marries the tea’s bittersweet notes with the sweet yet savoury cream cheese and is complemented with the classic combination of chewy shiratama and azuki bean paste. Likewise, the PABLO Uji Matcha & Azuki Cream Smoothie exudes robust flavours. The decadent drink teems with matcha jelly and is topped with shiratama and azuki whipped cream.
